Thanks so much for visiting our Kickstarter page and for showing your interest in THIS TIME!

Our Story:

THIS TIME is the story of two childhood friends, AYESHA and FELIX, who accidentally bump into each other after ten years apart and decide to spend the afternoon together wandering through London and revel in the delight of catching up.

This entertaining and heart-warming story looks at how time changes people and explores both the joyful and melancholic feelings that arise when two old friends reconnect. The premise may appear simple, but it’s a story that asks us to look at, think about and celebrate some of the most important relationships in our lives.

What do we need?

We need to raise £7,000 to bring this story to the big screen. Our cast and crew are generously volunteering their time to make this film, but your contributions are essential to help cover everything that we need and they will go towards:

  • Location Fees
  • Equipment 
  • Production Design 
  • Catering (vital!) 
  • Transport 
  • Post Production Costs

This is a fixed funding campaign, which means that if we do not reach our goal all of your contributions will be refunded.

Meet The Cast:

Great casting is crucial for a film like this and we are so thrilled to have two incredible actors confirmed to star in this film.

AYESHA ANTOINE plays Ayesha. Ayesha has had many starring roles in the West End including Kenneth Branagh’s HAMLET alongside Tom Hiddleston, Joe Wright’s LIFE OF GALlLEO at the Young Vic and THE SUICIDE at the National Theatre.

FELIX SCOTT plays Felix. Felix has starred in a wide variety of great TV & films including INCEPTION (Warner Bros.), WOLF HALL (BBC), NO OFFENCE (Channel 4) and THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER (Fox).

Ayesha and Felix starred together in the West End hit DIRTY GREAT LOVE STORY and they have the perfect dynamic and chemistry needed to bring these characters to life.

Look & Feel:

THIS TIME will be shot in East London. Inspired by classic films such as THE BEFORE TRILOGY and MANHATTAN we will film entirely on location to add to the authenticity and naturalism of the film.

Working with STUART HOWELL, the cinematographer of Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning series THE CROWN, this will be a truly cinematic short film.

Stuart will help to create a unique look for the film; one that is vibrant, full of colour and that captures the bustling city as well as the energy and spontaneity of this chance encounter.
