About

 “Enter the night world…” 

'Into the World Inverted' is a feature length film that tells the story of two best friends, Vivi and Violet, who wander aimlessly through the streets of Scotland one night, searching for the meaning of life. Throughout their journey, we hear what matters most in life through the peculiar perspective of several strange and surreal characters they meet along the way. As they venture deeper into the night, the lines between dreams and reality begin to blur. Vivi and Violet wonder whether they've somehow stumbled into an alternate night world that only exists when the conditions are just right. 

WHAT INSPIRED INTO THE WORLD INVERTED?

Johnny Clyde came up with the concept when he was working graveyard shifts. On his days off, he was unable to sleep at night so he would walk for hours around town waiting for the sun to rise. He took note of how empty and different everything felt. Everyone you saw in passing held so much more meaning than the day walkers who fit into the crowds. Johnny would take his guitar to random suburban neighborhoods and compose on the curbs, finding a certain peace in the fact that when people woke up the next morning, they would have absolutely no idea that someone wrote a song on their sidewalk. This is the same message that Into the World Inverted embodies; a single night adventure full of unexplainable, surreal stories, washed away by the sun and early morning joggers.

JOHNNY CLYDE - WRITER, DIRECTOR, PRODUCER, COMPOSER

Johnny Clyde has been working in film for the last five years as a director, composer, writer, producer, and animator. His work can be seen in award winning short films and feature films such as Raindance/BIFA Award winning 'Strings', and TV shows, such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Emmy Award winning 'Hitrecord on TV'. This will be his first feature film as a writer/director.

STEPHEN GRANT - PRODUCER, ASSISTANT DIRECTOR

Over the past seven years, Stephen has worked as a Producer, Director, Cinematographer and Editor on many international and local projects. He has worked extensively for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's production company, hitRECord, where he's had his work screened at Sundance, the BFI Southbank, and the Toronto International Film Festival. He has also assistant-directed documentaries for BBC Scotland, and has produced/ directed work that has been broadcasted on MTV, NME, STV, and Pivot.


MICHAL ZAGORSKI - DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY

Michal Zagorski is an award-winning Cinematographer based in Dundee. Originally from Krakow in Poland, he has managed to establish himself in Scotland as a creative and promising filmmaker, in just a few years. He has won the KCA Creative Award and RTS Student Television Award, and has also had his work screened at the Sundance Film Festival and in Hollywood for Filmapalooza 2013. Michal is incredibly driven and has worked on many different projects from feature films to short documentaries, both locally and abroad, in countries such as India, Poland, and France.

VIVEKA FROST- PRODUCTION DESIGNER 

Viveka Frost is Johnny Clyde and Stephen David Grant's long time collaborator, working on various projects together throughout the years. She has a keen eye for detail and an amazing ability to bring the director's vision to life with a remarkable and unique touch. Her work has been featured in films, illustrated books and photoshoots across the world.

TAYLOR DOLAN - VIOLET

Taylor is an accomplished actress and illustrator based in Edinburgh. Originally from Texas, Taylor’s work has taken her through the United States and Europe, with her work being shown at Sundance Film Festival and various screenings in New York, Los Angeles and London.

NINA VIOLA - VIVI 

Nina is an actress and illustrator based in Austria. Her work has been spotlighted on the online production company Hitrecord.org, with several pieces being used in productions and screened across the United States and Europe.

Making the leap from short film to feature length is daunting. Not only does the process require planning, man hours and dedication, it also requires decent chunk of funding. We have been very fortunate that we have secured some fantastic equipment and locations for free thanks to the generosity of friends and coworkers. However, we still need a budget to bring Into the World Inverted to life and make the film the best it can possibly be. Your pledges will pay for accommodation, transport, extra equipment rental, access to sets and locations, as well as making sure our cast and crew are well looked after. Into The World Inverted will be filmed entirely during the hours of darkness, and we need to make sure our actors are safe and comfortable throughout this testing production. Any additional funds will be put towards festival fees and distribution, so that as many people as possible can enjoy this rich, exciting film.

We are so grateful for every little bit of support, no matter how big or small. As a token of our infinite appreciation, we have some fantastic rewards for all our backers. These will range from posters, digital downloads and original film props to one of a kind creations such as original compositions by Johnny Clyde and dream like illustrations by lead actresses Nina Viola and Taylor Dolan. Take a look at the different reward levels for full details of what’s on offer. All rewards come with a generous side order of gratitude!

Risks and challenges

If we are successfully funded, we will begin principal photography in September. The shoot will last for 20 days. Since 98% of the story takes place at night, we'll be shooting practically only nights. Which means we have to squeeze a lot of shooting into very little time.

£10,000 is also an incredibly low budget for a feature film, but we're sure we can do it. Our tight knit team consists of many dedicated artists who have been working on no-budget projects for the last several years under even more difficult time constraints. We are all incredibly driven and eager to begin working on Into the World Inverted.
