We're Left Eye Blind. A production company based in Leeds, UK
Next month (November 2012) we're shooting a short film called 'Re:Peter' and we need your help to make it!
We need to raise £3000 between now and the end of October to get the film made and we're asking you to help us get there. In exchange for your hard earnt (or hard stolen) cash we'll be exchanging lots of golden goodies and gifts to say thank you
Here's a Short Summary of the film:-
'Re:Peter' tells the story of Peter a man who becomes trapped within a camera frame. When he leaves the left hand side of the frame he enters again through the right hand side of it and anything he touches or carries follows suit. But as the initial novelty begins to wear off we see our hero beginning to become increasingly frustrated about the restrictions he's placed within. Constantly trapped within the frame we see.
After a while Peter becomes a bit hopeless, down trodden and more than slightly depressed. But what Peter has to do… the moral of the story… is to learn to lead a life even within such boundaries. Making the most of what is around him and the potential joy he can bring into other people's lives.
Re:Peter is pretty important to us. We think it's an awesome idea that could really go on to do well in next year's Virgin Media Shorts competition. But more importantly... with becoming a production company we've become increasingly tied to projects that keep the lights on and put beans on our toast. We're not shooting short films as much as we want to... or used to. Re:Peter is the first step in realigning our ambitions as a team
What We Need & What You Get:-
Apart from a whole lot of love we need... a public road... which needs to be underneath a bridge. Which in this case is underneath a railway...
Because the realm is ruled by the law of Her Majesty's Health and Safety regulations we need specialist traffic management people to be with us... We also need a Generator for our lights, a lens for our camera. and food for our actors... In the end it works out at £2997.16 exactly... And that's how much we're asking to raise
In return for investing in the film we'll send you an uber posh Left Eye Blind / The Blind Club branded 8GB USB Flash Drive (or USB disk) with the finished Re:Peter film on it, a behind the scenes video and a couple of our super intimate Blind Club videos.
(Once you've finished watching the film the USB doesn't self destruct... You can use it for whatever file transferring you need in the future. Good for us because it's got our name it... And good for you because you're getting something of actual use (other than the warmer fuzzies of supporting the film!)
If you're a big contributor we'd love for you to come on set, see the action and have a brew. Pick up a light, be the Best Boy and be part of the crew. And if you want to be in the film and play one of the many people that Peter interacts with... We'd love that too.
Apart from the fact that we'll love you forever... you'll also be enabling us to get back into doing what we love the most. Narrative films
We have fun doing what we do. It would be ace to include you in it too. Anything and everything else. Even if it's just the 16p
Other Ways You Can Help
We're aware that most won’t be able to contribute, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help:
Tell people that would be interested. In film. Or in us... Friends, family, pets. Tweet Justin Beiber about it. Get it tattooed. Anything or everything would really help...
