Dear everyone,

Hope you are all doing well.

As you know, to date we have raised a remarkable £10,875 on our Go Fund Me page and this has been a great help in completing the filming process!

However, we still need to hit our target of £15,000 to finish the film by way of editing, colour grading, composing a music score and other filming costs.

So, if you know of anyone who may be interested in helping us reach our target and raising the remaining £4,125 please feel free to share the project with them. We would just love to have the film complete before Christmas but it cannot be done short of the budget!

Thank you again for your kind donations so far. We are all very grateful for your support.

Best wishes,
Fact Not Fiction Films
