Short Summary

Brothers in Law is a crime action drama where you never know who the good guys are.  We have an initial target of £5000 which will allow us to make a high quality "teaser" in order to show investors the style and feel of the final product.

Brothers in Law is a fictional story.

Police Constable  Eddie Rowe  is a hardworking, physically fit ex paratrooper.  He is an excellent thief-taker and handles himself with utmost professionalism.  His understanding wife puts up with his love of the job largely because Eddie is also a dedicated family man.  

Leon Hastings is a ruthless armed robber who is both charming and manipulating.  He becomes Eddie’s Brother-in-Law by marrying the sister of Eddie’s wife. 

Fearful of the dangers that Eddie posses, Leon proposes that Eddie leaves the police to become a security guard so that he can provide inside information to facilitate Leon’s robbery career.

Brothers in Law is an all action crime drama where you never really know who the bad guys are.   It’s a tale of corruption v integrity, of loyalty v betrayal, of family v duty.


What We Need & What You Get

We need £5000 to make a high quality Teaser that will allow us to show investors the style and feel of the final product.

In order to achieve that goal we have made a series of 24 Christmas related sketches and short films which together make up an advent calendar.  We are asking for just £1 to provide you with the link that will access all 24 films, but we are asking a little more than that, we want you also to spread the word.  We figure that two people donate £1 each on the 2nd December we would have £2 and if they each encourage 2 other people to do the same on the 3rd December we would have another £4 .  If in turn they got another two people involved we would have another £8 on the 4th December.  Remarkably doubling each day we would reach our initial target of £5000 by 13th December.    If the donating and referring continues  with each person along the way getting just two extra people to donate a £1 and getting two new people we would have over £16m pounds on 24th December.  Well that would be a Christmas and a half .    

We believe that there will be a positive response to this crowd-funding request because we are not asking for much from each individual and we are providing them with a product "perk" that is worth a £1.  We believe that you will help us go past our initial target of £5000.  We also believe that if they campaign is as popular as we hope it will be, that we might just achieve the £1m that we need to make our feature.  If it goes beyond that you need to know where the money is going.  Every penny will go into filmmaking, this will include sequels to Brothers in Law and providing other filmmakers with funds to get their products of the ground.  We will publish more information on how this will work if we start approaching 6 figure sums.  We want your help to make this record breaking fund raising campaign.
