A Man, Sinking - A Short Film About Diving

Hey guys, we’re a group of students from the University of York about to make our graduation film as part of our degree in Film & Television Production. As our final film project, A Man, Sinking is our most ambitious and exciting yet.

A Man, Sinking is the story of Matthew, a recently released ex-convict. He turns to diving as a means to support himself and is the perfect candidate.

He’s hardened, expendable and he needs this job. But down there, in the infinite expanse of darkness, his past waits for him. Each dive brings us closer to the truth; perhaps closer to death.

Matthew must reconcile with his past and accept his fate, whatever it may be.

Though we are inputting our own money into the project, for it to reach it’s full potential, we need your support. Our goal is £4000.

The project can be found on Kickstarter at kickstarter.com/projects/71256076/a-man-sinking-short-film. Any support at all is appreciated by all of us.

If you’re simply interested in finding out more about the project then find us on Facebook at facebook.com/AManSinking or Twitter at twitter.com/amansinking. As always any feedback on the kickstarter page itself will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Sorry if this feels a bit cheeky, but we realise YOU are the audience that we would love to be interested in the film. And don’t worry I’ll be sticking around to ask you guys questions! Thanks again.

Sounds like a great idea for a movie! Good luck and I can’t wait to watch. And if my wife lets me, I might even donate on Kickstarter.

Thanks for your support Greg, it’s really appreciated, we are struggling for backers at the moment so truly every little helps.

Can’t wait to show you the finished film! Thanks.

Thank you for your generosity Hector, it really means a lot to us. Great to see positive feedback from you guys as well, it’s how we know we’re onto a winning idea! Your support so far has been amazing, what a great collection of fantastic, generous people and we promise to keep you in the loop as we progress.

If you could keep plugging the movie that would be great as we know this can be a fantastic film with an unusual and unique storyline.

Thanks again, and keep on diving!

You may want to consider modifying the keywords or title on kickstarter...I tried to search for scuba diving and your movie project did not show up.
