Releasing Eleanor, Set to start filming in August 2022. And YOU can help us make it...
Back in 2020, myself and a group of actor friends, began writing the idea for Releasing Eleanor, a short horror film to be released on halloween. Unfortunately, covid swept through England and put us back in a hard lockdown, rendering our short horror dead in the water.
The idea of Eleanor never left my mind. She both terrified and excited me as I knew this movie would turn out to be an incredible story and and even better horror experience. So a year later, I reached out to everyone, and everyone was back on board! Eleanor will rise once again and this time it will be epic! Here is a little breakdown of a few things I would like to change from the rushed, no budget job we were doing before:
We have around 10 months to raise a budget. A budget means better, more high tech film gear & lighting, qualified staff to help film, and assistants to make the days run smoothly and location security. We had zero budget before and this stalled us multiple times.
We also have time to restructure the story to make it deeper, more meaningful, make characters have authenticity. We can focus the next few months on script architecture and plot hole filling. We can vastly increase our props and bring in teams of make up and set dressers.
