IT GIRL - a short film

£2,819

82

IT GIRL is a short film idea created by writer Richard Gosling (Babybird) and director Simon Lex (The Exam). 

We need your help to make our vision a reality. Thank you for taking the time to discover IT GIRL. 

                                                      Story

Since Libby McCallister went missing she has become a national icon. Her loyal fan base scours the country in search of her. Libby is the #1 trending story on all social media networks, search engines, and media outlets. Ian, a keen follower of the Libby saga, is about to make the most exciting discovery of his social life.

IT GIRL is a comedic satire set in a near future in which society measures value in "likes" and "♥'s". It is a warning of how social networks can foster extremes of anti-social behaviour.

Risks and challenges

Two main risks exist for completing this project to a high standard:

1) We might not identify the right actors for the roles at the initial audition. If this were the case we would have to re-audition for the roles until we feel confident that the cast can fulfil the characters of the script.

2) The script contains 4 locations, it might be difficult to shoot all locations within a 2.5 day shoot. Any prolongations to shooting will incur extra costs of equipment hire. We are doing everything in our power to identify locations close to each other to reduce delays in moving between locations which will help mitigate against this risk. If we do overrun our shooting schedule the extra cost of equipment hire will be self funded by the director.

Without you it would not be possible to make this short film. We are so grateful for your support that we will do everything to make IT GIRL the best film you have ever seen!

Thank you for taking the time to learn about IT GIRL and thank you for choosing to support us.
