WHAT DO WE NEED?
We need another 2.5K to complete our film. We almost made it, but time ran out and we were running on favours and vapours. Having already invested almost 6.5K into this project (with the help of MTA records and the amazing Dream Mclean) we are desperate to finish it, and we'd like to pay the crew who sweated blood and skills for the first days of shooting. We want to make the action sequences really pop and with another 2 days we can make this happen.
WHY DO WE NEED IT?
It seems that our ambition was much bigger then both our pockets and our clocks. Seeing that we now almost have a 26 minute version of this film, we want to go balls out and make the finished version even better.
We want the same crew back, as we all want to complete this together.
We will use the money raised to pay for camera hire (we shot on the new Sony F55 using vintage Cooke lenses for that lovely cinematic joy, so we need to match our image), we will pay all the crew that slogged through 5 days of intense shooting, turn arounds, stunt choreography from SG Action, prosthetic make up, production design, wardrobe, styling, blood, sweat and the odd tear or two for another 2 days.
We'd also like to be able to feed everyone again, as a good crew marches on a full tummy.
We are so close to having something quite special, a British film, with authentic Hong Kong style action with genuine new talent on both sides of the lens. We're not pretending, we actually mean this.
The best thing about this project is fast turnaround, no waiting 6 months before you see a sneaky Jpeg of a badly lit set or a phone clip of someone rehearsing lines.
We are 85% complete with this film.
We need your help to make the last 15% seem like another 85%!
I know this is crazy maths, but please, click on the 7 MINS Rough cut we have and if it tickles that crazy violent, heartbreaking nerve then pledge and we can smash this film into the world.
WE ARE LUCKY!
To be working with such a hot pot of upcoming talent. SG ACTION certainly bought the noise on set with full on bottle smashing, wood breaking skills, all lead by our awesome fight director CHRIS JONES (Martial arts hall of famer).
Not only in front of camera but behind we have up and coming star DOP Oliver Kember on camera duties and director ROBIN SCHMIDT (half of SUPER MASSIVE) fresh off the set of his first horror feature film 'AfterDeath'.
All this plus we have DREAM MCLEAN playing a cool cameo and lending his music to the films score.
IF YOU FEEL THIS PROJECT, PLEASE HELP US COMPLETE!
We need as many good FEELS as we can muster. Jump on board the crazy Hong Kong UK drama mash up movie, and we can all eat sweet noodles together with a smug cinematic belly full.
WHAT ABOUT THE MONEY?
With the 2.5K we will get all the amazing crew that we had back for another day and a half.
We had such a great team and each and every one of them is commited to returning to help us complete, but we want to pay them, and pay them properly.
We asked for blood sweat and tears and we got it, so hopefully with cold hard cash we can replenish these creative troubadours.

WHO ARE SUPER MASSIVE?
Super Massive is the writing, directing, musical mashup of Robin Schmidt and Simon Wan. Us. Musicians turned filmmakers we dick about in front and behnd the camera for your pleasure. We’ve been told so many times what we ‘should’ be doing and it’s just got to the point where we said ‘fuck it’ and just got on with doing things the way we want to. If you don’t like that then don’t come round.
Super Massive is a gun for hire, rocking through music videos, virals, content marketing campaigns, podcasts, comedy shorts. We’ve done literally everything, from extreme sports to factual entertainment tv on both sides of the camera.
We call ourselves Super Massive because we produce work that should put a massive grin on your face. Whether that’s funny or not is irrelevant.
Have a look at our shennanigans and jump on board!
