God Help The Girl is a Musical Film written and to be directed by Stuart Murdoch of Belle & Sebastian.

Set in Glasgow, Scotland, the film is about a girl named Eve who is in the hospital dealing with some emotional problems and starts writing songs as a way of getting better. Songwriting becomes her way forward, leading her to the City where she meets James and Cassie, two musicians each at crossroads of their own.  What follows is a story of renaissance over a long, dream-like Summer.

Inspirations for the film come from all over, the French New Wave of Truffaut and Godard, the early post-punk movement in music, pop musical movies of the 70's and 80s, classics by John Hughes, the great British comedies of Bruce Robinson and Bill Forsythe and just the city of Glasgow itself And yet this will inevitably be its own film, one that started with a song.  

Seven years ago, Stuart was out for a run and a tune came into his head which didn't sound like Belle & Sebastian. It was sung by a girl, and soon, one tune led to another.  Then Eve started to talk, James came along, then Cassie, and as all of their thoughts evolved, so did a girl group sound and a sense that it wanted to be a film, a musical.  

Faced with the daunting task, Stuart started with what he knew best, the songs, and began looking for girls to sing them.

In Spring, 2007, producer Barry Mendel (Rushmore, The Sixth Sense, The Royal Tenenbaums, Munich, Bridesmaids) ran across an ad Stuart posted online, "Singers wanted for Autumnal recording project." The fine print hinted at a film. He wrote the Belle & Sebastian fan site offering to lend a hand, Stuart got in touch and Barry has assumed the mantle of Producer ever since, working with Stuart on the script and preparing to make the film.

In 2009, Stuart found the girls and recorded a God Help The Girl LP, an EP, Stillsand took the singers on a small tour.  

Finally, we're gearing up, casting, putting the team together. 

Now we need your help.  

We'd love you to be a part of this film happening and have offered a range of prizes to inspire you, from as little as $5 up to signed posters and t-shirts, on screen credit, even a walk-on part in the film!  Hopefully there's something for you. If you'd like to contribute but don't fancy any of our prizes, feel free to make suggestions here and we'll do our best. And whatever you can offer is just great, we appreciate it. Not only are we raising money, we're also building a community behind the film -- your participation is meaningful.  

As Barry put it, "If we can reach the Kickstarter goal, this movie will get made. If we can't, it won't. We need the money and also to show the powers that be that there's grassroots support for our project."  

All backers who pledge $150 or more in total to the campaign will now receive a credit in the end roller of the film automatically - in addition to your specific reward.  We'll keep giving you updates as we go, too, like this one about Stuart and Barry's recent trip to London:

We'll also keep adding prizes, so please keep in touch.  And check out www.godhelpthegirl.com for more background on the film, the team, to listen to the songs and watch video clips about the film's development or to learn about opportunities to invest in and own a piece of the project.

Here's a sneak preview of what our God Help The Girl Cast and Crew enamel pin badges will look like - Stuart has been working with a designer on them and they look lovely. See the $25 reward to pledge to receive one.

By hook or by crook this film WILL start shooting in Glasgow this summer, ready for a 2013 release. Please join us for the ride.

Follow us on twitter to keep up to date with the project, too.

Thanks!

FAQ

  • Sadly at this stage we can't, it seems obvious and we'd love to but we are currently in discussions with distributors and sales agents who will handle the film's release. Whoever we work with will have a say in when, where and how the film is released so at the moment we can't promise a DVD or download in case it scuppers our deals!

    Last updated:
  • A few people have wanted to pledge larger amounts and receive multiple rewards, eg. $130 and receive a preview ticket and a t-shirt. This is of course most welcome! Best thing to do is to pledge the total amount you wish to, choose one reward and then message us with the other reward or rewards you wish to receive totalling the value of your pledge. If you've already pledged then you can change your pledge amount or the reward you'd like at Manage Your Pledge.

    Be one of the Girls. Record a GHTG song in the studio with Stuart. Over four hours, you will craft your own interpretation in collaboration with Stuart and his engineer and also enjoy a nice lunch. Once you have the vocal track, it will be mixed down with the actual instrumental tracks and other background vocals from the album version of the song you choose. This can be either done in Glasgow or also in LA, NY or London during the publicity tour. If you don't mind we'll also put your version on the special edition Kickstarter disc that goes out with the DVD. What fun!

    For this sort of contribution we need to offer something pretty special. $3000 will get you a walk on part in the film, Stuart will write a line in specifically for you and you'll come to set to film it. You'll need to arrange travel to and accommodation in Glasgow. We will do our VERY best to keep this scene in the film but we can't guarantee what will happen when we edit. If for any reason the scene has to be cut your scene is GUARANTEED to appear in deleted scenes on the DVD release and we'll send you your scene on DVD in advance of this. You'll be invited to the wrap party and you'll also receive the $5, $10 and $500 rewards of a digital thank you postcard, a website mention and your name in the credits.

    Per Stuart, for the collector's collector -- the rarest B&S record there is -- the first "white label" press of Tigermilk. There were only TWO made, and Stuart gave one to his minister so he wouldn't have a salacious image on his hands. So this, Stuart's copy, is the only remaining one. It will come in a nice sleeve, signed by the band and for such a huge donation you'll be invited to the wrap party and will receive the $5, $10 and $100 rewards of a digital thank you postcard, a website mention and your name in the credits. Check the project updates to read more from Stuart about the record.
