New Target- £1,100

We are thrilled to say that we have reached and exceeded our £750 target. We are now setting ourselves a new target of £1,100. This will allow us to cover any unforeseen filming costs, as well as providing a great start to the fees needed for distributing and marketing the completed film.

Thank you again for all of your support.

The Film

Written and Directed by Gabby Hawes, Unseen is a short drama, exposing the lesser-known side of human trafficking, domestic servitude.

Originally from Nigeria, Adanna is trapped in an ordinary house in the UK, forced into a life of slavery. Adanna lives in fear of her employer Amirah, and the emotional and physical abuse she inflicts upon her. When an opportunity arrives to escape the hardship, she faces a difficult decision between supporting her desperate family and trying to make a better life for herself.

Why It's Important

We want this film to make a difference. This is an issue that doesn't get enough publicity or attention. We want our film to increase awareness of trafficking in the UK.
Once the film is completed, we hope to make it available as an educational resource to schools and charities.

What We Need

We've set our goal as £750. This really is the bare minimum. We're putting as much money in as we can ourselves, but we need help to pay for things like location fees, actors' expenses, props, festival entries and catering. Here's a brief breakdown of our production budget:


Actors' Travel - £150
Actors' Accommodation - £400
Props & Wardrobe - £100
Catering for Cast - £200
Daily Travel & Shooting Expenses - £100
Location Fees - £150

Total - £1,100

As you can see, we're expecting to spend at least £1,100 and this doesn't include any festival entries or post production costs. If we're lucky enough to surpass our target, this will be a great head start towards the costs of marketing and distributing the film.
