Once Bitten… needs you – 2 weeks to go!

Once Bitten... needs you! 2 weeks till our film festival crowd funder starts!

We are now only 2 weeks away from the start of the Once Bitten… crowd funding campaign so it’s time to reveal another of the rewards that will be available if you join Team Once Bitten…!

Remember, we aren’t seeking your help to make Once Bitten…, that bit is done (well, nearly done – we are in post-production and working hard to be finished for June).  We are asking for your support to get Once Bitten… to film festivals around the world and on to a screen near you!

It’s been a fabulous journey so far and we would love you to join us for the final leg by helping to raise funds for those pesky festival submission fees – and also have the chance to own some unique Once Bitten… items.

Once Bitten… tells the story of Martha Swales. One stormy night Martha needs the toilet fixed in her hotel bathroom but there’s one problem: her plumber may just be a vampire! Martha Swales is played by the fabulous Lauren Ashley Carter (star of Imitation Girl, Jug Face, Darling & POD) and we have a number of unique items signed by Lauren to make available to our supporters.

Last week we announced that supporters will have the opportunity to own one of Martha Swales’ surviving business cards individually hand signed by Lauren Ashley Carter (click here to find out more if you missed last week’s post).  This week we are excited to reveal that you will be able to own something with actual guaranteed screen time (sorry, it’s not Garth Maunders!) – a prop book from Abomina Press, Martha’s publishing company. These are completely unique as we only made one of each title and crossed our fingers that they survived the shoot!

Like most independent films Once Bitten… was shot on a micro-budget and every penny spent is up there on the screen. We know that times are hard for many people and that there are lots of great projects asking for and deserving of your support. But even just sharing our messages on social media, linking to our website and spreading the word about Once Bitten… wherever and whenever you can is a huge help and we are truly grateful for all of your support, thank you!
