About

Something is clawing its way into Laura's world. Sometimes it comes out to feed...A new horror film from the realm of the french extreme, bringing you a challenging look at love, fear and parasites. Think Irreversible meets The Fly.

From award-winning director Craig Murray and favoured writer for the Stuff You Should Know podcast, Ed Grabianowski, comes a short horror story about what fear can do to love.

The film is based on Ed's original story, Extraneus Invokat, as heard on the SYSK Halloween special last year. With your help, we can turn this chilling tale into a gripping film. 

We already have some high quality people working on the project but we need funding for some key areas; sound design & score, practical effects and our cast.

The team behind The Between

Craig Murray - Director

Craig is a filmmaker from a fine art background whose work ranges across music, fashion and advertising. His films for bands such as Mogwai and practical effects work for major brands including Samsung have garnered accolades worldwide, including a Golden Lion Award at the Barcelona Film Festival for his film 'Ghost Against Ghost: Checkpoint Charlie' and a vimeo Staff Pick for 'Mogwai: Teenage Exorcists'.

Screenwriter - Ed Grabianowski

Ed is probably best known as 'The Grabster', Josh and Chuck's favourite writer for their Webby award winning podcast Stuff You Should Know, but Ed doesn't just pen articles for the world's most popular podcast, he has also been an accomplished writer of horror fiction for over 10 years, being featured in magazines and websites both in the United States and the UK.

Sound design, production and score

Sound is 50% of film, so we've brought Adam Mendez and colleagues from Twickenham Studios on board to work with Craig on the sound design and post production. Their background, working on films such as The Martian, Alien Covenant and The Fly, will be a great asset to The Between. 

To accompany this we have Markers; Jodie Cox (Earth, Sex Swing and Narrows) and Jason Carty (Art of burning water, Foe and Geiger Counter) performing an original score.

Director of photography - Colin Elves

Behind the camera with Craig will be long-time collaborator and award winning cinematographer Colin Elves, who most recently shot the BAFTA nominated feature film The Hard Stop.

Illustration and graphic design

Every aspect of The Between is important to us, including the marketing and Kickstarter campaign, and that's why we recruited top illustrator Adrian Stone and graphic designer Danila Luppino to work on the poster art, storyboards and  other materials.  All of which are available to you as pledge perks.

A word from our producer

Thank you for taking an interest in this project.

If you love Stuff You Should Know as much as I do, you'll be a big fan of The Grabster. Let me tell you something; Ed Grabianowski is an even better person than he is a fine writer. When I heard his fantastic, spooky story Extraneus Invokat being read aloud on the SYSK podcast Halloween special last year, I knew it would make a great short film. I hired Ed to adapt his story into a screenplay, brought him over to England and, together with director Craig Murray and some help from Oscar-nominated producer Howard Dawson, he has delivered a tale which is faithful to the original but will pack an even bigger punch.

Our director Craig Murray is an artist. Literally. His videos bring a vision and a visual style which is at once spellbindingly beautiful, sensual and raw. He is tailor-made to bring Ed's creature to life.

Helping Craig are a host of incredibly talented people with major film and television credits. We have a score being written by two of the UK's foremost experimental musicians, and having listened to their first couple of tracks for The Between, this project is worth backing for the soundtrack alone. It is stunning.

Casting for The Between will take place right after our Kickstarter finishes, and filming will commence in the new year.

But we need your help to make this happen.

Your pledge will make the first Stuff You Should Know-inspired movie a reality, allowing us to hire the talented actors, crew and production staff needed to make a high quality film.

Thank you for supporting this project.

- Ben Thompson, Producer

Risks and challenges

We have assembled a fantastic team so far but we are still looking to recruit key people.

The biggest challenge for us is creating practical effects to a very high standard, otherwise they can very easily look unconvincing, or worse, comical. That's why we are recruiting top people, but they don't come cheap.

It's the same story with the actors. This film centres entirely around two people who will be on screen most of the time. It requires them to deliver extremely challenging performances using very little dialogue. Performances that require great subtlety and grace. So we need to have sufficient funds to be able cast to the right people.

Our other main expense come from something very simple and practical; camera and other production equipment. Due to the nature and scope of the film, we are using some specialised gear that comes with a specialised price.

All these things will be worth the money, and you'll see every single pound or dollar pledged on that screen in the finished production, but we are well aware of the size of the task.
