Dark – short film
A project by: Oritse-Mofe Onuwaje
A short summary of your project “Dark THE SHORT FILM”
Hello And Welcome to the crowdfunding campaign for “Dark ” The short film . My name is Oritse-Mofe Onuwaje and I am a filmmaker. Dark came to me one morning after an amazing night out. It was conceived as a result of listening to indie alternative music. Its about 5 minutes long and follows the story of a blind man who fell in love.
Who’s the team ?
-I currently study law in the University. Having made one short film which during the production had over 2000 constraints. It was such a difficult time but my team and I were able to pull through. You can view it via this link :
I am experienced in film making , with some experience in camera, lighting & ultimately, directing . I know its hard to ever even consider a first time director, but I know I have a creative vision for directing film that breaks the very boundaries of film making first work which was done with zero budget and 2000 constraints does well in proving this.
– However my team for “Dark” is a completely different team.

Our story !
When I saw that there was a chance to crowdfund for this idea I was excited, as I have been looking to direct my second short film which I wrote and scripted , for a long time. If you back me, I will not let you down. So, why don’t we give this a try and get me started on bringing my script to life.
Also , I have a director of photography & producer attached , so rest assured I am fully committed to making this work.
I believe that together we can accomplish great things. One day I aim to break the very boundaries of what it means to be a filmmaker and I would be more than grateful if we broke it together ! Making this film is really important to me as I want the world to know what I am capable of as a filmmaker and a writer and also to raise some awareness about cancer & being blind. I believe this film will be capable of reaching you emotionally.
If you donate towards this not only will you be funding our careers but you will also further a chance at raising cancer awareness and blindness in the UK and beyond .
