See that rug?

Yeah, that one, the one that's just been pulled out from under us. Less than 72 hours to go until principal photography begins on our shoot, and for reasons as yet unclear, the arrangement by which we get all our equipment appears not to be happening. We have a complete crew, a great cast, a lovely location, lots of enthusiasm - and no equipment. Unfortunately, not much money either. We can hire what we need, but that costs hundreds more than we have.

Then at dinner last night, James says "I'll give you £50 if you give me a credit on the film" ...

48 hours to go til principal photography, and a plan is hatched - I email everyone I know who might be able to chip in, explaining the situation and asking for help. Donate £50 to our film fund, and in return you get your name in the "thank you" credits at the end of the film, a copy of the film on DVD should you want it, and an invitation to a screening party, whenever that happens once post-production is done.

36 hours to go, the film fund stands at £150.

If you would like to join in and help, email me here, or if you already know me, on my usual karoo address.

Do you need the £50 within 36 hours? That I can't manage, but I'll try to drum up some interest from some less poor people. Good luck, hope you manage to get the money you need! Oh yes, you should definitely see Severance. I had to look away for some of it too, but I still enjoyed it a lot!

Alas, as an impoverished student... Though Mum will be an Angel for you. Am sure she'd appreciate copies of some photos of the shoot if poss!

Hope you reach the target.
