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

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.
