Hey everyone,

Last week was pretty incredible for us! After going live with our campaign on Tuesday, we've already secured over 100% of our fundraising target in less than a week. The crew have been amazed at the level of support from our backers - we couldn't have done it without your help and generosity.

We still have 16 days before our campaign ends. £2000 is the minimum amount of funding required to produce the project, and every contribution past our initial target will help push it as far as it can go. This includes paying for an additional day of shooting, supplementing our art department budget and bolstering our festival entry fees.

This week we've been busy securing our actors, locking shot lists and running our social media campaign. We've also been organising less exciting (but very important) necessities like risk assessments and insurance. Yesterday we had a tech recce to our fantastic location to work out logistics and draw up lighting plans. Check out our Instagram for behind-the-scenes content later in the week: @fortherecentlybereaved.

We're 23 days away from principal photography, so the next few weeks will be spent finalising our shoot schedule and lighting plans, workshopping with our incredible actors and getting ready for the shoot.

Thanks again for all your support, and stay tuned for more updates!
