Film the pilot episode for a groundbreaking original drama/comedy TV series involving financiers, time travel, and spiritual enlightenment
About the project
Life is good at the top of the financial food chain… until Sir Harry Lewis gets God, and his new outlook on life spells chaos (and much more upsettingly, no more of those fat, probably-illegal extra paycheques) for his colleagues on the Board. But the company’s founders have an ace up their sleeve: a prototype time machine, acquired years ago as part of a dodgy deal – and they decide to send someone back in time to make friends with Harry’’s past self, and change his life, keeping him out of God’s way and preventing him from ever having become a Christian in the first place. At least, that’s the plan…
Unbelievers is a drama/comedy series created by Matthew Colclough & Wayne Ashcroft, and co-developed by Robert Steven Hunt. We’ve been writing for over two years, drafting the entire first season, and now it’s time to film a pilot version of Episode 1. We’ve finished the script, and cast the major roles, and are now looking to raise £35,000 to fund a two-week shoot based mainly in London. We hope to finish the 30-minute (ish) episode by the end of 2015, and then seek backing from a major broadcaster to produce the full series.
Where the money’s going:
- Our immediate need is to raise £7,000 for a 50% deposit to hire the equipment (camera, microphones etc) & key crew.
- The final instalment of the equipment hire (another £7,000) will need to be paid at the end of filming.
- Other major areas of spending will include £7,000 for salary and travel for the cast and additional crew, £7,000 for location fees and licenses, £2,000 for insurance, and £5,000 for props, wardrobe and additional costs.
