'The Undone Years' Short film Crowdfund

'The Undone Years' Short film Crowdfund

Hello all,

We are finally ready to unveil our latest short film project ‘The Undone Years’ which we are crowdfunding through IndieGoGo.

This is a huge moment for us as it will hopefully become our first, properly funded film; and a step up for us into the industry standard we have now become accustomed to. The next few months will be very busy for us, assembling a full crew and jumping headfirst into the final stages of pre-production.

We would really appreciate any help you can offer with this project, whether that be by supporting and following the campaign, or by sharing the campaign page and trying to get as many eyes as possible on the project.

We are confident and excited to launch this campaign and are looking forward to the tasks and challenges it will bring!

Below is the link to the campaign!

Thanks for your continued support,

See if you can work out where the 3 differnet clips begin and end.

Enjoy, and support local business where possible!

SPINN Music Video

So about a month ago, we had the pleasure of working with the brilliant, up and coming Liverpool based band "SPINN" on a music video for their new single 'Notice Me'.

The shoot was a tonne of fun, working from Camp & Furnace in the Baltic Triangle, we ran a simple ish multicam shoot with the band performing the song with a plain background. This allowed them to portray their vibrant personalities and let the track shine front and centre.

We also had the pleasure of working with the band's manager, Sam Meaghan and local filmmaker and close friend, Jacob Stuart to create the piece.

Check out the video below straight from the bands Youtube Channel and give them a follow as they're more than deserving of it!

Watch this space for big things from these lads.
