Mouse

Lincoln, United Kingdom
FUNDED

Could you out think a clone of yourself?

THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of our backers. You are WONDERFUL and have helped us race to our funding goal with 18 days to spare. But, you know us, we are not going to relax into the final few days... We have set a NEW TARGET. Help us to reach 150% FUNDED and EVERY SINGLE BACKER will be invited to a cinema screening of MOUSE in London. 

And, because we are SO GRATEFUL, we have decided to give our Original Soundtrack as a free download to EVERY SINGLE BACKER too. Mouse is a film built on collaboration. It is not just ours, it is yours too. We're all film producers now!

Short Film - 10 mins

Sci-fi
 

Mouse is a mystery/sci-fi story about Anderson, a man who wakes in a building with no idea where he is or how he got there, before slowly discovering that in each of the rooms around him are a thousand clones of himself, all of whom woke into the same mysterious scenario.

To escape he needs to outwit his 'selves' whilst overcoming the realisation that he is not the only Anderson...


Concept Visuals produced by Paul Burrows (www.scifiartist.com) and available as 
limited edition, signed prints as part of our rewards system!

Mouse is also totally visual, whilst we have some wonderful sound design from the brilliant VERBAL VIGILANTE (Music/Sound Design on trailers for SKYLINE, RED TAILS, DREAM HOUSE, MEN IN BLACK 3 and more) and an excellent score, there is no dialogue whatsoever. We also have some epic special effects work from the brilliant DANIEL SOUTHGATE (effects and compositing in SEX AND THE CITY, BURN AFTER READING as well as tons of work in Advertising) which serves to enhance the story and present a world otherwise impossible to find in reality. 

To make Mouse happen we need your help to complete our budget. With your donations, Mouse will shoot in April 2012 and be complete by the end of 2012. Please get involved and support independent cinema!

Crowdfunding is a unique funding opportunity (small amounts of money from a lot of people) but, more than that, it puts filmmakers back in control by incentivising funding for short film projects.

Your money will help us buy materials to build a set, secure a place to do this, pay the appropriate wages to our excellent cast and their expenses for the shoot. Your money will also help us to rent the equipment we need.

In return for this we have set up an incentive scheme so that even a modest investment is not without reward! (they're over there, on the right). And because we have already SURPASSED our target and have decided to shoot for the stars we are giving our backers two EXTRA treats.

1) ALL BACKERS WILL RECEIVE A DOWNLOAD OF THE Original Sound Track by VERBAL VIGILANTE

2) If we hit 150% ALL BACKERS WILL BE INVITED TO A CINEMA SCREENING OF MOUSE IN LONDON

Thank you so much for your interest, it's not just about the money but the supporters we pick up on the way too and your support means the world to us!
I've made several short films in the past, most notably The Paperboy (http://vimeo.com/justintagg/thepaperboy), which screened at over 70 films internationally, won 5 audience awards and an award from the Royal Television Society and the BFI. I have also written a host of short stories with several being featured on TriggerStreet.com more than 20 times. 

I am determined to work with the best people to make sure that I deliver a truly wonderful story and a  finished product to audiences around the world.

I also really believe in crowdfunding. Like anything, I think the stories have to be worth telling and know that crowdfunding is not an entirely new phenomenon but it does mean that regular filmmakers who are unknown to the industry at large can, with tenacity and vision, make their projects happen.
