Tom Austin’s has put his black comedy Man-Cub, made as part of last year’s Phoenix Bursary, on DVD to raise the funding for his next film, La Legende~Dali
Man-Cub that tells the story of a young loner, Frank Scarfe. Now 22, he is stuck in the past, due to the traumatic incidents that happened to him 10 years previously.
The death of a former guide-leader triggers off a series of events that help him bury the past and get on with his life. He’s aided and abetted in his quest by Jackie, a flirtatious grave-digger with a mean set of wheels.
The DVD comes with the 12-minute film, a producer and director’s commentary, a 1960s documentary interview with Bertha Winchester, a retired and grumpy Totnes grave-digger, and a gallery of photos from the shoot
All money raised will be used to help fund Tom’s next film, La Legende~Dali.
There’s a minium donation of f £6 (although £10 would be better). Each donor will be entered into a draw to win a two-night break for two in a hotel on the English Riviera!
Donations of £30 or over would mean a credit for yourself or your business/website address on the new film – you could even have a role as an extra!
