We are a group of student filmmakers who will be finishing our BA degrees in Film Production & Theatre in 2021. Our first project will be making not one, but two short films for our dissertations and we need your help! Please help us fund our films so that we can cover our production costs and ensure that we can film safely in the pandemic. At the top of this page, you'll find an example of our work, 'The Ghost Detector', a project we worked on last year (with Anthony Pollard!)
so, Who are we?
Production HAKS, as well as looking pretty cool, is an anagram of the team's names!
Humnah Abdullah (she/her) - Hi! I'm Humnah, or Hum (if you prefer). I'm so excited to be working on these projects for our dissertation - such a cool way to finish the degree! I'm the director for 'Picked' and the producer for 'Frightful Productions'. Still currently reeling from the beauty that is 'I May Destroy You'. (Highly recommend!)
Arseni Loika (he/him) - My name is Arseni, I love films and I love filmmaking. My favourite director is Stanley Kubrick and my favourite film is 'Come and See'. I’m the cinematographer and editor for the projects and I’m very excited to deliver both films in their best quality!
Katie Henwood (she/her) - Hey! I'm Katie and I'm super excited to be the director and cinematographer for 'Frightful Productions' and sound for 'Picked'. I love films but most of my viewing recently had been spent bingeing 'Orphan Black' on Netflix (which I would recommend!)
Susie Holm (she/her) - I'm Susie, a movie lover whose favourite film is 'The Social Network.' I love watching horror films and documentaries and my favourite production company is A24! I'm producing and editing 'Picked' and creating the sound for 'Frightful Productions.' I can't wait to get started!
what are we working on?
When a device made to find lost electronic devices chimes at Quinn's friends house, Quinn has to discover if their friend is who they claim to be.
The mockumentary follows Sam, a film student who is determined to get her project - 'The Vampire Vicar' - featured at a festival, after being abandoned by her crew.
Where will the money go?
The money raised will fund our production by covering:
- Sets and Props
- Costume and Makeup
- Sanitisation of equipment
- COVID-19 safety equipment
