About this project
Perplexed Music is an original short screenplay by Mark McGann about the universal cycle of devoted love, loss and rebirth, based on the Petrarchan (Italian) sonnet of the same name by Elizabeth Barrett-Browning.
The film will explore the temporary madness and isolation experienced by a middle-aged man (played by Mark’s brother actor Paul McGann) as he battles for reason and stability with worlds past and present, in need of closure and the strength to continue on his journey without his life companion.
The film will be shot entirely on location in Somerset, Cornwall and the Cotswolds in July 2017.
Our project is now in overfunding and the campaign is scheduled to continue until 17th June, so there is still time to join us. This is an exciting opportunity to add to our total and to create an even better film as any additional pledges will go towards extra shooting equipment, crew and post production facilities to create a film that is as ambitious as the budget allows. There are always improvements which can be made by additional funding, and thus thrilling possibilities to improve on what we already have.
