Until The Day Breaks, a Bristol-based sci-fi buddy movie, is in need of your kick-starter support, and it’s worth a look.
With just a few days to go to reach its target, those fine purveyors of films which tip a toe touchingly into their subject matter’s psyche, David Williams and Andrew Oxley of Screen 3 Productions got in touch about Until The Day Breaks.
Until The Day Breaks, says the Kickstarter blurb, is an epic sci-fi feature film combining stunning special effects, a witty script and loads of adventure!
The film is set 12 years after the end of civilisation following a zombie apocalypse. Reverend Ivan Passworthy is alone in the world, apart from his dog Wacko and an imaginary old lady named Maureen. That’s when bizarre extraterrestrial named Lee crash-lands.
The film is made by the filmmaking collective Project Trident, who met when they were working at an arts cinema.
Seven down the line, and they have made close to 100 short films.
“We’ve had films shown on TV and at festivals the world over. As a collective, we have always strived to get the most production value from limited resources,” they say.
The project is written and directed by Carl Peck, who when not crafting film from the wild depths of his imagination lectures on Visual Effects and Digital Compositing at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.
Already they’ve amassed more than £21,000 to go towards the film, but their target is £50,0000. There are plenty of rewards on offer, and you can get in on the ground floor with just £1 (we’re guessing even Dino De Laurentiis started small).
But you could offer more and reap the rewards of being a baddie in the film, getting a special song written for you, or even bagging a space helmet.
