A short summary 

We are raising money to fund our final graduation film - a short experimental fiction. Blister [working title] will focus on the eccentric and nuanced character Julia, a young woman living in a rural and desolate part of Cornwall. Clouded by a miasma of past trauma, she is living an isolated existence until she begins a charged and challenging relation with a stranger. The film will evoke elements of gothic fiction and body horror realism through the use of strong textural imagery and sparse dialogue.

Who are we?

My name is Emily Murphy and I'm the Producer for Blister. I am working with a group of third-year Filmmaking BA students to create our final graduation project:

Director - Eugene Caines

Assistant Director & Art Director - Olivia Burge

Writer - Patricia Craciun

Director of Photography - Solomon Deller

Camera Assistant - Brandon Dalby

Sound Recordist & Designer - Billy Wilson

Editor - Marx Manoza

our story

By contributing to our film, you will be giving us the opportunity to further develop the skills we have been cultivating over our last three years at university. This project is the summative piece of our educational careers and we need your help to make it reflect all of the hard-work we've put in during this time.

From our Director, Eugene:

"I want to explore the inner emotions of a character through very strong and succinct audio-visual language. The more recent films I have proposed and worked on have been predominantly experimental and I think one thing they are strong in is mood and atmosphere; I would love for the opportunity to marry that with more fictional story telling and character building."

Where will the money go?

Location Hire (7 nights): £650

Casting: £500

Travel Expenses: £300

Props and Costume Design: £400

Miscellaneous (i.e. catering, fundraising events, safety precautions, etc.): £150

Any excess funds will be used to pay for Film Festival submission fees.
