The Film Umbrella
The Film Umbrella (TFU) is a new film production company made up of filmmakers Vitor Vilela, George Parkes, Patrick Alexander, Tom Lake, Mike Middleton-Downer, Paul Heide, Sam Wildman, Marc Hendrey and Tom Hackney. TFU facilitates the production of original TV and Film for public distribution.
The protector is a short film we will use as a pilot to pitch to TV companies and other investors like yourself to produce the sequential TV series about Jak, our troubled hit man lead.
We need £2500 to produce this this short film which will be shot in Birmingham from the 25th January 2013. We are shooting in Birmingham to keep our costs as low as possible although we are based in London. We'd love for you to get involved and help us fund The Protector.
All your money will go towards the production and post production of The Protector as none of us are being paid!
We have a hugely talented crew who believe passionately in this project and are committed to making it an outstanding piece of work.
We hope to pitch this film along with the subsequent series script to TV channels and larger production companies in the hopes to have it produced into a TV Series to be aired publically. Anyone involved will gain full recognition and we will use it to promote and expand the reputation of TFU and anyone involved.
