The Story
A grieving teenage girl and her damaged boyfriend and how, through their love for each other, they plan a final exit.

CLOSING IN ON COMPLETION
With the sound track complete now (Feb 2017) we are nearing completion on this project - at least the creation side. We have loads still to do to get it out to festivals and win some prizes.

SOMETHING NEW FOR 2016
Since this story is driven by issues of how cancer and mental health affect the characters, and their choices, I have decided to donate 5% of all funding raised in 2016 to charity. I personally know at least ten people who have been directly affected in the last year alone, and it's time to do something about it.

The Birth of the Project
When I first had the idea for this film, I had never even read a script. I have spent the last few years drawing on my passion for film, photography, writing and design to learn as much as possible about film-making - the most collaborative of arts - and this project is the result.

I have been heavily involved in a local film society for almost a decade and wanted to find a way to involve local people in my passion for film. I have been engaging with the community to find locations and talent that I can meld into a team to make this film happen. I hope to take the result to film festivals around the world.

A Legacy in the Making
Once the project is complete, I want to offer it as a special to film societies who want to give their membership something more than just another film showing. This would include giving a description of our experiences of the film-making process, followed by the film itself and a Q & A session afterwards. It could also be available to colleges as a real-world example of what goes on.

Progress to Date
Principal shooting is complete and the trailer is almost ready. Talking to composers and colourists to engage with them in post-production. It's a very exciting time. 

Playing Your Part
Any donation that you make will be used to enhance the production value of the film. I have set up a number of reward levels for this project, but all donations, no matter how small, will be very much appreciated. The top two levels also offer a day on set, with any contribution from you that gets used in the final cut being credited accordingly.

Thank you
I appreciate your time in reading this and look forward to getting this exciting project off the ground. I will provide regular updates as we progress and, hopefully, will get to meet some of you along the way. Best wishes!
