Unmasked: The Virus and the Disease

Documentary exploring the impact of Coronavirus and Lockdown. For more info visit www.unmasked-doco.net .

We are a producer and a camerman (www.rogerbowles.com) who are currently, like many others, "resting" between jobs – "resting" in the sense of 6 months scrabbling to make ends meet while sinking into debt.


We have followed this crisis closely and, while accepting that the disease can be serious for some, are increasingly concerned about our response and the impact it is having, particularly on the vulnerable.


We have a network of contacts – in science, medicine, and the local community, as well as in the media – and direct experience of how close to the edge many in society are. We believe we are well-placed to document, on camera, experiences of Coronavirus and Lockdown that might otherwise go unheard, and that it is important to do this now.


We intend to speak to a wide range of people, from the homeless in our regional towns, to tradesmen and small business owners, to the scientists who can explain what we really know. We will even talk to politicians!

The funds raised here will go some way towards covering the costs of six weeks of pre-production and filming. These costs have been roughed out on the basis of using a tiny crew, paying everyone including us London Living Wage (£10-75PH) rather than their professional fees, and obtaining equipment at a fraction of the usual rate. It's a labour of love, but, with your help, will also help keep the wolves from the door for those involved.

Once shooting is completed post-production will begin, and at that stage the form of the finished film and how it will be released will become clearer. The important thing now, and what this GoFundMe page is for, is to get the film "in the can".  

All who contribute here will be credited and, to the extent possible, offered previews and invitations to screenings.

Thanks for your support!
