to where we are led

A film by frederick jewson

 

The goal...

I - Freddie - want to create a short film that captivates the minds of the public and encourages people to think a little deeper…

Social media has widened our connection to the world but narrowed our minds. We share views relevant to us and ignore those that oppose us.

 

It's my goal to produce a film that encourages people to want to think, want to talk and want to debate. A film that encourages people to, simply, think a little deeper...

invest

I'm proud to say, the Frederick Jewson/Oxford House brand has proven itself commercially, having worked repeatedly with key Oxfordshire and UK based brands to produce cinematic & engaging commercials over the past few years

What does it mean to invest in a short film?

To be blunt. There is no monetary return. Which is odd for an "investment"...

Simply put, you're investing in me, my team and for your own sponsorship purposes.

 

A short film is about getting noticed, taking the first step. Opening the way for better investment opportunities in the future... Feature film/TV series/etc.

I'm looking for investors and sponsorship to help fund & support the production as well as my commercial goals for the film.

Your money will go towards funding the cast & crew, props & set, and to hire specific lighting equipment.

 

The money will also be used to fund what happens after production...

 

...Such as entry to festivals, marketing campaigns and maybe a few screenings.

What's the film about?

Set in the modern day with a 60s/70s aesthetic.

 

Our character faces a dilemma, he is tired of the superficiality of modern day society and is personally riddled with moments that almost pause time, detaching him from the emotion of his current reality.

The backstory of our character is that of vigorous mystery, he is a very precise, yet free thinking character, his eye for detail and fact is exact, whilst his mind stays open to all possibilities.

During his past he had constantly stumbled on many moments in his life that prevailed to something of deep reason, reason that simultaneously reflected his detachments of humanity. A cosmic query of sorts. A query that had no grounds for research as it was only a feeling.

At some point between past and present our character stumbled on to a mythology, one that he found relation in. Over time, many reasons came to be and the clues that the mythology gave our character led to very real paths, paths that he continued to follow successfully. Due to our characters eye for detail and fact, he always struggled to believe that these paths were leading somewhere other than a coincidence.

Intrigued by the potential mythological ending of these paths, supported by his curious nature, our character decided to continue researching until something busted the plot. Nothing ever did... Things continued to make sense; he grew closer to the mythology more than ever, as if it was drawing him in, wanting to be revealed. His moments of detachment from reality and emotion became more frequent as he walked further down these paths with little resistance from his facts.

This emotional and mythological journey takes us to a specific time and place, the conclusion of the prologue to all that could come. With a strong belief of where this path could lead and having had a continual growth of resentment of the norm of modern society our character seeks the conclusion that the paths promise. He decides to do all in his power to bring forward what is waiting, albeit constantly sceptical that something of this awe is truly possible... But, there is no evidence to tell him it’s not, his doubts only arise from the social beliefs and normality of the current world.

the team

The team will be made up of local creatives. We frequently work together commercially under the Oxford House brand. Alongside myself, Nick, Adrian and Jack we will be supporting more local talent through multiple production roles.

 

We strive to have inclusivity on our sets, we work with those we get along with and those with the talent and passion we require.

We also hope to offer work experience where possible during production to help those looking to get a taste of the industry.
