About this project
A MASSIVE THANK YOU to all of our backers! Thanks to your generous support we've just reached our campaign goal!
The movie will be completed and all your awesome rewards will be produced and sent all over the world.
As our campaign is not yet over we have created a stretch goal of £45,000. If we reach this goal then every backer, past and future will also receive our special 'Ravens Arcana' Epic Digital Book shown in the graphic below!
In the bleak highlands of Scotland, an army veteran must battle his demons in a last desperate bid to reclaim his life and his sanity.
The Unkindness of Ravens is an exciting, original, feature-length horror film that blends the psychological with the supernatural in a nightmarish tale of one man's journey into hell. Our film began shooting in 2012 and is finally shot and edited but we still need help to complete our film's post production and to release the film independently.
The Unkindness of Ravens tells the story of Andrew, a homeless veteran plagued by flashbacks of a traumatic event he witnessed in the army.
Andrew travels to a retreat in the remote Scottish Highlands hoping to overcome his fear of ravens, the dark creatures that populate his visions. But, in this bleak wilderness, his nightmares manifest into an enemy more powerful than he could ever have imagined. Our script was written by the amazing Sarah Daly in 2012.
The Raven Warriors are an entirely original creation, borne out of extensive research into the mythology of ravens.
Inspired by the Valkyries of Norse mythology as well as the Celtic Morrigan, these evil raven-headed beasts stalk the earth, seeking suitable victims. They hunt in a flock or 'unkindness' and their ultimate prize is the juicy white eyeballs of their chosen victim. These incredible creatures were designed by Gavin Robertson and Lawrie Brewster in 2012 with help from the public The Unkindness of Ravens Artist Group (2012) Copyright Hex Media ltd.

We really need your help to complete our post-production and to market the film so that it can be seen by the widest audience possible.
So far, we've used our own money along with some help from our friends at Dark Dunes Productions to fund the shooting phase of our film. Now we need your help to finish off the film. Every penny we get we'll match with our own blood, sweat and tears as we work to make this the best film it can possibly be. We care passionately about our audience and we love the way that Kickstarter allows us to connect with the very people we do this for. So we hope you'll share this crazy and exciting journey with us!
Risks and challenges
The film is already in the home stretch. Once we meet our fundraising target, we will get straight to work completing the final draft – there is absolutely no chance that the film won't get finished (barring perhaps a global apocalypse type scenario!). We've put a year of our lives into it already and we'll be doing whatever it takes to get it done as soon as possible, and looking as great as it possibly can!
Then, as soon as the film is finished, we'll get right onto producing all your rewards. We have a detailed plan in place for how we will do this. We can't guarantee that we will make the delivery dates suggested on the rewards – for example, should we manage to snag an amazing distribution deal, we might have to wait a little longer before sending out the movie. But we CAN guarantee that we'll do everything in our power to get them out on time and we will keep you in the loop throughout the process with plenty of updates. You, the funders, are our priority and we want you to have the best experience with us on this film. You can also get in touch any time with questions – we're quite friendly!
