Kenzie and Treyden, a couple in their mid-20s who’ve been swept up in a whirlwind six-month romance, find themselves confronting a painful question: Has their love story come to an end?

And we have all experienced this pivotal moment in a relationship. Were we actually dating our partner for the wrong reasons? Was the allure of romance used to fill a void in our life? Were we using our partner to recover from a previous relationship?

As Kenzie and Treyden sit opposite each other at a bar table late at night, they somberly discuss this, and their love story is revealed through a series of flashbacks that illuminate their conflicting, confused beliefs about their relationship. 

This poignant, emotional drama explores how in today’s world, the pressures on a relationship, and the obstacles to staying together, have never been greater. The love story of Kenzie and Treyden is their own, but it also reflects the immense societal challenges that we all face in our intimate lives.

COMPLETE THE VISUAL EFFECTS SHOTS

Our multiple award-winning script features a number of visual effects shots that enhance the emotional story of Kenzie and Treyden

Your pledges in this Stretch Goal will determine how many of these visual effects we will be able to do in post-production.  

For the full Stretch Goal total we can do all of them to ensure every visual in our award-winning script comes to the big screen. 

We have now shot the first 4 days of our shoot and need just one more day of shooting through your help with this campaign to complete our production.

SHOOT THE COMPLETE 20 MINUTE SCRIPT 

We have finally been granted the permit to shoot in a stunning location that is the setting of the only scene from our award-winning script that we have not filmed yet. This scene is pivotal to everything that happens in the love story of Kenzie and Treyden. It completes their story. 

The location itself is outside of London in another U.K. city that we need to travel to. The logistics of moving our cast, crew, and kit, between these two cities is a budget challenge that we need your help with please. We will be travelling very early in the morning and returning that night for our one day shoot. 

We also need to rehire the kit and purchase the insurance again to keep the location, kit, and team, safe throughout the one day shoot. 

It has taken three years to bring this ambitious love story to the big screen, and only this one day shoot stands between us and completing the dream.  

This final day of shooting will ensure the full version of the mutiple award-winning script will come to the screen with no compromises.  YOU can make the dream come true. 


HIRE AN EDITOR

We have had a great deal of interest in our film from a number of Editors, and we are keen to start post-production with one of them asap. 

So your pledge of support will ensure we can release When the Rain Sets In even sooner.


Every Rain Pledge will be up there on the big screen in this visually ambitious love story with its multiple locations. We want to take the shackles off and really show what can be done in the short film medium when imagination and creativity are the driving force.
