Produced through Slough-based Resource Productions CIC, a non-for-profit social enterprise, the film formed part of a wider ‘Kickstart Into Film’ project funded by Rothschild Foundation and the Inclusive Recovery Fund – a partnership between UnLtd, the foundation for social entrepreneurs, and Comic Relief. The film was developed and shot during the pandemic, through the support of partners including HOME Slough and Rifco Theatre Company (Arts Council England). The project enabled 10 unemployed young people to secure their first paid roles withing the industry as Trainees. In addition, more than 100 under-represented creatives, craftspeople and technicians of all ages were able to ‘step up’ to a new role and/or gain their first credit on a feature film. Industry partners including Executive Producer, ZXRecords and post-production company Digital Orchard provided in-kind support alongside help from Pinewood Studios, VMI, Salamandra Animation Studio and lighting provider MBSE UK. The film was completed thanks to an intensive crowdfund and its UK tour is supported by the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery.
