Caravan is a cautionary tale set in the 90's which follows a young family on a road-trip. As night falls the family pull in for a routine rest-stop where their caravan is invaded by a malevolent intruder.



The idea for the short was originally inspired by Nathan’s personal experiences of family road-trips and growing up in the 90s. Through the writing process Sarah was inspired by the baby-sitter urban legend that was adapted into the feature film When a Stranger Calls. She wanted to see how a film like this could play out on the road and to see where that could lead the story and characters.

Thematically the film revolves around the anxieties of parenthood and the questions parents ask themselves when raising their kids. 

Caravan also focuses on not getting too caught up in life, enjoying the journey rather than focusing on the destination.

  Update 1: A huge thank you to all of our supporters so far:
Update 2: We have now cast for Caravan!
Top L-R: Daniel James in the role of Chris & Sarah Filippi in the role of Jane!
Bottom L-R: James Matthews in the role of James & Jackson Lucas in the role of Timmy!

Rewards


Some example post-cards for pledges $25 and above. 







*choose from either of the above images or one of three production stills which will be on offer once the film has been shot to include on your post-card. 

How The Funds Will Be Used


While the basic production costs for the shoot have been sourced we are still a long way from affording the special effects for the film.

Not only are films expensive to make but they're even more expensive to make safely. Therefore we would rather raise funds to cover studio hire fees than risk our cast and crew's health and safety because at the end of the day that's the most important aspect of a production. 

What we need the additional $2500 for includes:
- Studio hire expenses
- Mastering & grade
- Professional lights to achieve the look we need
- Practical effects- SFX makeup, blood, all the fun stuff

Any additional funds we receive for the film will go straight into affording VFX.

Boogie Monster will be doing our mastering & grade. You can check out their Post-Production Showreel here:


The Challenges


If we don't reach our Pozible target. then we won't get any of the funds. Obviously we don't want this to happen so please help us reach our goal!

Aside from finances being a challenge, a film shoot can be full of unforeseen circumstances. To ensure that we overcome any challenges thrown at us over the course of the production, we will be spending adequate time in pre-production scheduling the shoot, including weather contingency plans and ensuring we have a Plan B in place for worst case scenarios.
