"Filmmaking is A Miracle of Collaborations"- James McAvoy
'A Monster’s Shadow' is a short, psychological, monster-horror that follows Ethan Wilson; a 12 year old boy. Ethan is afraid that the Shadow Monster he’s been seeing is stalking him and his family, and is trying to take control of his Dad. Ethan fears that no-one believes him and he’ll lose his Dad to the monster forever.
What We Need & What You Get
We are hoping to raise £1500, which will go towards:
Casting: The characters Ethan, Louis, Mother and Father will be played by professional actors, and we would like to honour a fee of £85 per day of filming.
Location: We hope to be able to rent a house to shoot the film in at a cost of approx £450, that will put the story in its appropriate environment.
Food: "Without drink and food, the hero is no good". To get the energy needed when filming we would like to provide cast and crew with refreshments.
Props: The money will go towards these departments mainly, and with the money that is left we will use it towards film festival fees.None of the money will go towards funding the crew, so you do not have to worry about some poor filmmaker pocketing the money and using it for personal profit! If we are lucky enough to raise more money than we need, the remaining money will be donated to charity.
You are welcome to donate the amount of your choice, but there are some rewards if you donate certain amounts! These have been created so you can be a part of the project in more specific terms and by choosing a reward you will get access to exclusive emails, behind the photos, interviews, personal thank you's and the film. However, we are grateful for even the smallest donation.
Who Are We?
We are a group of passionate filmmakers from Cambridge School of Art who decided to create a unique story based on real life experiences. This project will be our final project before we take a leap into the real world and can call ourselves 'proper filmmakers', and we are therefore very excited to share this project with you and we hope you will be able to see the joy we get from storytelling.
This project will give us an opportunity to experience the real world as filmmakers, and to apply our hard work and determination to a project we can be proud of.
Making a film is a group project and it is impossible to anything by yourself, that is why we hope you will help us by contributing and see the joy in filmmaking throughout the whole journey.
