Delighted to say that Louise Jameson, from Dr. Who and The Omega Factor, will be starring alongside Charlie Ross in 'Extra Time'.

The Producer and Director...

Mark Lever is a Television and Broadcast Graduate from the University of Portsmouth, living in London. Since leaving university, he has worked on a number of films as a freelance film maker including 'Moving In: the Web Series', 'If This Isn't Love' music video, 'The Wrong Date' short film. Extra Time allows him to work on his two favourite subjects 'Football and Time Travel' He is also looking forward to working with the talented stars of Extra Time. In fact he is very excited about the whole project.

Gary Thomas, the Director of Extra Time has now directed 10 short films. Including several Arts Council Funded films as well as being backed by regional screen agency Screen South. He raised £16,000 to fund his split screen film installation, The Dog & The Palace a film inspired by The London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games. He was also awarded an Inspire Mark for the work on the film from the London Olympic Committee.

The filming partnership have now worked on 2 web series episodes, 1 music video and 2 short films together as Producer and Director. They are very much looking forward to working on this project and taking their film career a step further by pushing their skills.

The Campaign

With the funding, we will be able to recruit experienced cast and crew who will help achieve the technical level, 'Extra Time', deserves - pushing our boundaries with special effects, stunts and star actors. 

What We Need

One of, if not the most important thing to get right is the cast. That's why we want to be able to pay them, so we have the choice of the best. At the moment, the cast budget over the six days of filming stands at £3198 and that will hopefully pay for a big star to be part of our cast and a top Stand Up comedian. 

Let's not forget about the people behind the camera. They are what makes the film look beautiful and sound amazing. That is why its essential we get the best possible crew we can by paying them for their hard craft. To be able to pay the crew of at least 10 people we have in mind, we will need £5416. This will be able to pay the crew for 6 days of filming of at least 10 hour days.

Extra Time is the most adventurous Gary Thomas, and I will be when it comes to extras. We need to be able to pay for extras to be 27 football players who star in Extra Time. Allow us to make the football scenes as realistic as we can by helping us raise £754.

It is very important we hit the ground running and shoot as much as we can in the days of filming, that is why its essential we get as much practice as we can beforehand. So we would like to be able to pay for a cast and technical rehearsal prior to shooting by raising £1346.

We would love to be able to make the film in mind but if we aren't able to raise the money, we still have a back up plan in place. Though, this will be a compromised version of our vision for this film. We will be compromising it by reducing the script size, the amount of cast and crew (Most likely we'll have to turn around and say to the crew we have so far and say we can't pay them the amount we have agreed and potentially lose them), the equipment we use)
