Filmbase MSc Students Launch IndieGoGo Campaign

Filmbase indiegogo

Help fund two feature films which will go into production this March in Dublin

Students on the MSc Digital Feature Film Production course, run at Filmbase, have just launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funding for their feature film productions. Practical film production is a cornerstone of this Masters course and the two films being made this year will challenge the crew in very different ways. The goal is to produce two industry-standard feature films capable of propelling everyone involved into careers in feature filmmaking.

Poison Pen is a romantic comedy that deals with love, vanity and deception. Written by the acclaimed international best-selling author of the Artemis Fowl books, Eoin Colfer, it tells the story of a has-been literary master, PC Molloy, who is blackmailed into working for a tabloid gossip magazine. Cultures clash and sparks fly as the cerebral Molloy reluctantly becomes the celebrity interviewer for vain celebrities. Despite his instincts Molloy falls for Poison Pen’s fiery editor, April Devereux – but things get tricky when his ex-wife and former supermodel Jasmine turns up looking for a second chance at fame.

Light of Day is a hilarious mocumentary set against the backdrop of low-budget horror filmmaking. Written by Filmbase graduate, Chris Brennan, Light of Day follows the doomed crew of First Bite is The Deepest – a cheap vampire flick as they struggle to make their film. With an inept director, world-weary producer, a meddlesome writer, a star with a peanut allergy and the worst product placement deals in history there’s more horror behind the scenes than in the film. The only hope their film will ever see the light of day rests in the hands of Michael and Sarah, the only two sane people on the production.
