Caution i really REALLY need help!!!

A little about me


Hello, im Connor, Im 16 and am from the UK. My main ambition in life is to make anything audio visual, wheather this be short films, movies or even fan films. I take a lot of inspiration from the star wars franchise in general and like the fact how George Lucas has been able to make something phenomenal from a great idea and a very small budget.

My Problem!

As you can tell from the title of my campaign i currently do not own a camera that records, only a iPhone that can take pictures. As a result of this ive tried to keep my self occupied by doing a lot of animation and CGI (computer generated imagery).

Here is a little motion capture i did in a school 10 minute animation challenge.

What are my intentions

Over the past couple of weeks ive been putting all my attention into finding and making 3D models for a fan film me and a big cast are going to be doing over the summer. (without giving to much its about a young talented Jedi who looses his master early on in the film).

Any donations will be much appreciated and will hopefully get my courier going in the right direction due to the fact i am doing Media, and ICT for my A levels.

It has always been a great dream of mine to become a producer and or director of any franchise but think the best way to start of is by making my own with a little help from you guys, and a spark of imagination (yes i did just quote figment).

Please please help to my cause and will let you guys know all details of what camera i get depending on how much donations i can raise.


Thank you for taking the time to rad my campaign. P.S my production company is called WickstedStudios

Some More Images of the the Star wars Fan film (Echoes Of The Republic) These pictures where taken when we where out scouting for a good location to film!

Maul was a fucking maniac in Phantom Menace, best thing in the entire prequel set. I didn't see the new one and have no desire to, Star Wars for me died after the Ewok's TV movie in the mid-80's. This new stuff doesn't make any sense to me.

Silly, filmmaking is an art, not a competition.

Oh my God, can I make you the poster-child for The Revolution?! Damn, kid, you're perfect! You'll know what I'm talking about soon enough. I'm gonna make sure you get involved, that's both a threat and a warning.

Dude, you made this video?

[YT]O4F8wnEGg6Y[/YT]

That's fucking awesome! That was stop-motion?! I see you're working with light-sabers, too. Dope.

Oh, and one very big problem plaguing this website is the awkwardness of posting a YT video. Click on the button to "quote" my post, and you'll see how I posted your video. Not your fault that you didn't get it on the first try, it's an awkward system.

Anyway, welcome to the party. I hate to break the news to you, but this isn't the best place to raise money. I've seen it done, but only by people who were already well-connected to this community. As a general rule, filmmakers don't tend do donate to each others' projects because we're all skimping to fund our own. Doesn't mean there's anything wrong with you asking.

Also, you don't necessarily need a camera, not just yet. It might be better to keep your money to save for bigger things, or maybe spend it on other things, like audio. Or a production budget.

Stick around. Things are about to get real interesting here, and you should be part of it.
