Thank you for visiting my crowdfunding page. The purpose of my campaign is to raise funds for Riff, a short film and the final major project for my MA in film here at Middlesex University. I am very grateful that you have discovered my page.
WHAT'S RIFF ABOUT?
Riff is a comedy that follows Jim and Tim, who attempt to go head-to-head with their respective bands at a concert for a chance to win a record deal.
I first began script work for Riff two years ago as part my MA Film course modules. After writing the first draft of the script, I completely fell in love with the concept and decided I wanted the film to be my dissertation project. I have always enjoyed comedy, from Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, all the way through to Only Fools & Horses.
MY GOAL FOR RIFF
My goal for Riff is to create a comedy that relies heavily on the impact of visual comedy. This is what made all of the early filmmakers so talented and what influences me still to this day as a filmmaker.
Making a film costs money! This said, the budget for Riff is relatively modest at £500.
HOW WILL ANY DONATIONS TO MY CAMPAIGN BE USED?
