Dust, starring Alan Rickman and Jodie Whittaker

London, GB
FUNDED

TODD, a 60-something loner with a twitch, follows young JESSICA (7) and her MUM home from school. He waits for nightfall and breaks into the house. While Mum's distracted in the bathroom, Todd creeps into Jessica's bedroom, where events take an unexpected turn...

DUST stars Golden Globe, BAFTA and Emmy winning actor, Alan Rickman, alongside the critically acclaimed Jodie Whittaker (Attack The Block, St Trinians, Venus), and introduces 7 year old Lola Albert.

DUST is a 6-7 minute short film, written and directed by us, Ben Ockrent and Jake Russell. We met at secondary school and have remained friends since, in which time Ben has become an established scriptwriter while Jake has created video content for brands and online.

The funding we hope to raise with your help will go cover the final costs of post-production (including visual effects and colour grading), while anything left over will help us with festival submissions and publicity for the completed film. 

Your financial support, in return for some fantastic rewards, will help us put the finishing touches to a project that began as an exciting and determined idea, and has since gathered a wonderful momentum that has helped us team up with Alan Rickman and Jodie Whittaker along with an incredibly talented production team and crew.

While we are both life-long film fans (and both gained early experience as runners on set and location), DUST will mark our directorial debuts for fiction and is the fruition of over 12 months development, refining and hard graft.

Dear All, 

Thank you so much for your understanding and patience. We know it's been a while since you made your very generous contributions and allowed us to make this film. Without you we genuinely couldn't have done it. It's a long, long road to getting a project like this off the ground, let alone seeing it soar through the air afterwards, but, we're pretty much there and ready to send everyone their long awaited and well deserved rewards. 

What with it being Christmas and everything, we're going to wait until the new year to send everything out, so expect deliveries by the end of January at the latest (depening on where you are in the world of course). 

It's been an honour and pleasure to have come together with you all on this and Ben, myself and everyone on the crew thanks you deeply for your help. 

Happy Christmas and an even happier 2013 to you all. 

Jake & Ben
