This is a test shoot for a much bigger project.
Brief history is this.
Sept 30th : James, Kyle and Scott meet to talk about what we're going to make next. We all bring script ideas, character monologues, little bits of paper with big ideas. James shows us the outline for "We The Unwilling"... it blows us away. So we decide to start shooting parts of it that we can, with what limited resources we had to hand.
Oct 1st : Kyle get's his Blackberry out.
Oct 2nd : James, Kyle, Scott and Mike are trudging through the forests in North Yorkshire with all the gear we could get our hands on. A script that's ink hasn't dried yet, and a stream which became a river overnight (bring wellies). We shoot it.
Oct 3rd - 6th : Kyle couldn't edit. The bug bites sustained from the shoot shut his whole body down.
Oct 7th : Edit finished. Passed over to sound to give it a bit of a scrub and put some BG in. Colour grade added after watching a hell of a lot of Band of Brothers.
Oct 13th : Sound finished. Film exported and uploaded.
There will be 3 more of these shorts which will tie it all together, which we will then seek funding to make again. We're just a few guys who want to make a movie. Anyone who can offer support please get in touch. email@example.com
Apologies to Mike for spelling his name wrong in the credits.
Dean : Scott Sturgess
Captain : Mike McGowan

Shot on a Canon 7D with an EF-S 15-85mm - don't let those elite red ring 5D mofos get the drop on you! The man makes the kit, the kit doesn't make the man!
Thanks to all the people who have laughed and supported us when they found out what we were up to.
THIS IS THE BEGINNING.
