FELL tells the tale of a quirky couple’s star gazing date that takes a sudden and dramatic turn when something unexpected falls to Earth.
The script was selected by Oscar winning producer Iain Canning (The King’s Speech, Shame) to receive initial funding through the arts charity ‘Ideas Tap’.
“Given the exciting and difficult world of contemporary film-making, Fern’s short film idea showed a surprising mix of drama, emotion and genre,” Canning commented. “Alongside the strength of her previous work, FELL has all the potential to further demonstrate Fern’s skill for storytelling and her talent as a director.”
The production has secured some amazing talent to play the lead characters. Joel, the geek-chic, science-wiz, will be played by Damien Molony (Being Human, Ripper Street, Crashing, Kill Your Friends) and Alice, the witty, impulsive, tough cookie will be brought to life by the Tamla Kari (The Inbetweeners Movie, The Musketeers, Cuckoo).
With over half the budget raised, the film is very close to being able to fully realise its vision and is now working hard on securing the final stages of funding via the Kickstarter platform. The team have a host of exciting incentives available to those who contribute to the project, from set visits, exclusive screenings and even the opportunity to have your name listed in credits and IMDb.
