A Short Summary of your Project
“MEAT GRINDER” is a thriller about a mother who, after spending too much time on social media, must learn to cater for her son’s new palette. This becomes increasingly more difficult when strangers learn of his odd eating habits and both mother and son become secluded from the outside world. Will she find a way to keep her son alive? And to what end? We are aiming to raise money in order to enhance our project to create a more effective resort and tackle the issue of technology taking over our lives.

Our storyWe’re a group of third year students that are aiming to create a short film worthy of recognition amongst the professional industry. The donations for this film will allow us to create a film of an industry standard which will enable us to showcase it at film festivals therefore gaining exposure and taking our roles further into the professional world. Our project is hoping to open the eyes of many into the impact social media and the internet can have on people’s lives. The internet is a wonderful invention that allows people to communicate their opinions and create real change, but it’s not all cocktails on the beach and Facebook trolls in the comment sections, it can cause negative real life impact to the world around us. We’re not looking to shame people into using it, or create controversy, but simply enjoy the company around them and convince people to put their phones on silent every once in a while!
By donating you will have a direct impact on the quality of our production and help show the positives and negatives of online media in today’s society.
