What is the Project?
An ambitious final year period short film based on a published short story by Alan Bradley.
While walking in the park De Voors is lured into sitting next to Montague, a man he does not know but whom starts to engage in intelligent conversation, observing and deconstructing other people in the park. The jovialness of the situation soon turns sour when the conversation turns to murder and who could be the possible suspects.
Who's the Director?
Lesley is a final year student at Confetti Creative Insitute based in Nottingham, UK. She successfully funded her first film project last year with her Icelandic documentary about the Icelandic Horse which went on to win Confetti's best factual programe of the year. Now a short film drama is the challenge and she's not doing it lightly. A full cast and crew of 22...set in Victorian England...being shot outisde...in March. Better get praying to the sun gods!
What will you money go towards?
The money will help towards the cost of making the film. All cast and crew are giving up their skills for free so I would like to be able to cover their travel costs and provide food for the shoot dates. The main part of the funding from here will be used for the period costumes. There are 8 characters being portrayed and to dress these people head to toe costs alot of money.
And hey, theres even a Penny Farthing bike and rider been arranged!
Costs broken down
Costume Hire £450
Food £130 (22 cast and crew) Breakfast, lunch and snacks
Travel costs £300 (1 London Actor £150, £150 petrol)
Location Hire £50
The film is being shot on a Canon 5D.
Post production will start directly after shooting, with the main concentration being completed around easter.
Credits sequencing and DVD authoring will be completed by May 2012

A huge thank you to all you lovely generous people, friends, family and associates that have made this project a wonderful success!
It really does warm my heart knowing there are so many people who believe in me so much to part with their hard earned so again, thank you very much, you really made me feel very special.
I am now in the midst of editting which is going well, then it will be onto some special effects, adding all the sound and music elements and a final colour grade then, and only then, there will be a final film for you all to feast your gorgeous eyes on.
The end of May brings the student showcase at Broadway where all the final year film students show their film. I will be told the time and either morning or afternoon nearer the time but it would be great if you could come down and see what you helped achieve on the big screen in Europes largest independent cinema YAHOOOOOO!!!!
