U.F.O By Mhairead Connor

About U.F.O

Project 2013-01-30 23:06:03 +1300

Nine year old Brains needs to get back to his real family up in space before being exterminated by the human family he lives with on planet Earth. UFO is a playful and poignant fiction about the power of the imagination and the danger of alienation.

Here's our FB page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/U-F-O/469261053110632

The first project from the team of Writer-Director Gregory David King and Producer Mhairead Connor. A Multi Genre live action/FX entertainment funded by The New Zealand Film Commission.

We need $3350 to keep our Berlin based director Greg King fed and housed for the two months he is in New Zealand. U.F.O is a magic little film with a magic little team of some of Wellington's most inspiring and talented filmmakers that needs a little bit of magic (or some of your bucks!) to get us across the finishing line.

    Hello Friends,

    It is now 11 hours until our Pledgeme campaign runs out and I stop spamming you all relentlessly about it.

    Thank you so much if you've been able to support it. This film has been a long time cooking and for a while it looked like it wasn't going to happen. Some of you know the reasons behind that and can probably appreciate why being able to undertake it means so much to me personally. Realising that you don't always have to give up doing the things you love, even when it seems impossible not to, is pretty cool.

    If you havent pledged yet and you can spare a few bucks Id really appreciate the help. If you can spread the word about UFO Id love that too. 

    Lots of love to you all
