    After hesitantly accepting help from her online friend Carey and their guardian Desmond, Mabel enters their household, filled with guilt from this act of kindness. As her mental and emotional states fluctuate, small acts of love and warmth hidden in everyday moments such as baking or playing the guitar become key to Mabel learning to accept help and grow as a person who is truly her own, shown over the course of a year. This makeshift family of Carey, Desmond and her girlfriend Angelica show Mabel a side of life she's never seen before and inform her of all she is and all she can be. 

    The diversity that emanates throughout the onscreen cast does not stop there in regard to the crew too! We are a diverse and universally represented crew, comprising entirely of young ambitious filmmakers with the intention of depicting stories of those under-represented in wider society. As a crew, we are also proud to adhere to and uphold the BFI diversity standard both within our crew, as well as our cast.

    Making a film involves so many specific and essential items. In order to bring Mabel's story to life, and surround the film with the love it deserves we will be dedicating our money towards things such as, cast; locations; hair & make up and props. 

    On from this, in order to create as safe as an environment on-set as possible for our cast and crew, we will be looking to buy appropriate PPE equipment and sanitary products, so that our cast and crew may operate without the anxiety of infection looming over them.

    In conjunction with raising money for our film, we will also be donating 10% of the proceeds to the UK based charity, GALOP! An Anti LGBT Abuse helpline.

    We felt that because the themes of our film are so pertinent to the tireless work GALOP does in the community, and in recognition of the people enduring similar hardships to that of Mabel in our film, we wanted to give back and help in some way!

    Please check out GALOP's page for yourself to see some of their amazing work!
