Wolfheart Productions in partnership with Cat and Weasel Films are proud to announce that a crowdfunding campaign will launch on 27 August at 0900 GMT for our latest short film “Corvidae”, starring Maisie Williams from hit TV show Game of Thrones.
‘Urban Gothic’ writer Tom de Ville is making his directorial debut, supported by Director of Photography Maja Zamojda and VFX Supervisor Alan Marques. The film is produced by Nick Hudson and Alexander Wolpert, who are hoping to develop “Corvidae” into a feature film next year.
“Corvidae” is a dark fairytale about a young girl who loves birds, and the very strange thing that happens when she tries to protect a wounded crow from the boys in her village. Rooted in the tradition of pastoral horror it is a short, silent film inspired by the work of writers such as Alan Garner and Arthur Machen.
The raised funds will be distributed across the VFX, colour-grade, music, titles, sound design and all the ancillary costs associated with top-level festival submissions. The campaign will be hosted on the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo and will run for 40 days from 27 August 2013 until 11 October 2013. Perks include limited edition prints from renowned concept artist Ben Kovar (“300”, “Wrath of the Titans”), “Corvidae” photographs signed by Maisie Williams, invitations to an exclusive crowdfunding screening followed by a Q&A and many more! The goal is to raise £20,000. 15% of all funds raised above the target will be donated to a charity of Maisie Williams’ choice.
Alexander Wolpert, Founder of Wolfheart Productions commented, “This is a really exciting time for Wolfheart Productions. We’ve thrilled to have brought together some exceptional talent to work on Corvidae, with the goal of making every element of the film of the highest quality. Maisie Williams brings a wonderful quality to the screen, creating the perfect atmosphere and delivering a brilliant intensity to the film. The whole team is looking forward to the end result when Corvidae is released early next year.”
