Halfway there and a special thanks to all our new backers...!!!
OOooooOOOooh, we're one day short of halfway through the campaign and we're just about halfway to the target!! Last night we hit 40 backers, which is amazing! If we can replicate this during the remainder of the campaign, we'll reach our target!
(And if we can exceed our goal we've got some extra stretch goals and rewards up our sleeves too, so fingers crossed for that...)
This week, and after a VERY long gestation period, I finished making this short film based on a prisoner's story. I met my storyteller back in April 2017, and while I only spent a few short sessions with him his story affected me so deeply that I've never been able to get it out of my system.
It was as if it became physically implanted in me.
There's a whole backstory to the creation of this short film, and the various trials and tribulations over whose voice would narrate it (mine, ultimately, as I lost contact with my storyteller, who did not wish to be named and said his story was a 'gift') and which images I would use (he'd suggested reams of images and sounds from his native Northern Ireland, and finding copyright-free material to include was quite a task).
Anyway, the film is here if you'd like to view it.
We've got two more weeks to go. Thank you thank you thank you for your support, and please keep sharing with your networks.
We can make this happen!!
