The BLUE BICYCLE
Project 2012-03-23 20:39:48 +1300
"The Blue Bicycle" was written over the summer holidays, whilst I was with my family in Picton.
The idea was inspired by the memories I had as a child growing up in a little suburb of Miramar Wellington. I felt compelled to write this beautiful, emotional script, simply because I felt that it needed to be told.
It's my story, my childhood friends story, and when I look around at the world we live in today there are thousands and thousands of stories they are unlikely never to be told. But we have the opportunity to let this story be told, and with your help, we can make this a reality!
"The imagination exercises a powerful influence over every act of sense, thought, reason, over every idea"
. Latin Proverb
The telling of this story will rely on compelling performances from actors, coupled by visual fest of shots. The music will be heart warming to drive the emotions to create empathy for a family life especially when there is a death of a child and family life hits rock bottom.
Although the amount I am asking for is small, your koha will go towards Art Direction, Actors, Accommodation/Transportation costs.
The crew is small, the cinematography will be vital to realizing the overall look of this film. At present I have some wonderful people that will be giving of there time, equipment, resources and talents. Which I am grateful for, and in return I shall be returning the favor.
By pledging your koha to the production of this film you will help support all those who will be involved in this project, and any left over koha from the completion of this project will be given to another short film to ensure that it is "Pay it Forward".
I appreciate you taking the time to consider "Paying it Forward" I leave you with this quote.
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams".
Please know anything you can spare will be greatly appreciated.
