About the Project

Bittersweet, is a short film written by Rowan M. Ashe, that is currently in pre-production and is being made as part of a Masters-level film technology project at Staffordshire University. Our wrap date is the end of April.
 
This is the Production Hive team's first crowdfunded campaign and all those involved have had experience in successfully making short films (and feature films). The funds raised are going towards the camera budget to aid in the creation of this short film. We are to shoot on the Red Scarlet-X using Zeiss prime lenses. This is an essential element of an academic research project.
 
For this we are seeking at least £1,000 to guarantee a full shoot and assist the current budget. We have currently made provision for all other areas of funding, with the majority of the project being self-funded.

What You Get

Our  supporters, depending on the amount funded, will have the benefit of receiving a range of perks depending on their level of support. This will range from a simple shout out on our Facebook page to invites to the premiere and and goodies such as autographed postcards and t-shirts. There are also a range of credit options such as Associate Producer and Executive Producer for those funding the most.

How This Helps

Your assistance will be a great benefit to all the crew involved. This will provide an opportunity to work on some of the latest professional-standard equipment, that normally wouldn't be accessible. All those involved on the production will get a copy of footage for their showreel and we intend to submit the project for competitions and film festivals nationally and internationally. Ultimately, the experience this would grant would be invaluable and support the careers of budding filmmakers.

Other Ways You Can Help

Money isn't everything and even if you can't help fund the film, there are other ways for you to help out or get involved:

  1. Tell everyone you know who may be interested in joining the team. All you need to do is send a quick email to your friends with a link to our indiegogo campaign.
