Many of you will know that I am a big film fan.
Because I like to keep up-to date with new projects there are a few select sites that I will browse to keep on track. You’ve got the big players like IMDB and Short Of The Week, and the obscure sites like Mandy or Indiegogo. Indiegogo is an odd choice in relation to film as I see it more about creative design and community projects, whereas Kickstarter is the golden child when it comes to film funding. Nevertheless there are many film projects on offer on Indiegogo and so without further ado here are the top 3 projects to check out.
This project came to my attention by a friend who worked on the shoot and absolutely adored the production. It follows a girl who basically has the worst day of her life, but emerges from all of the chaos with a better understanding of who she is.

I’m a big fan of thrillers, especially anything with a serial killer twist.
Following in the footsteps of Silence of the Lambs and Se7en, Ivy follows the story of a detective after a gruesome serial killer. However, not all is as it seems in this stylish thriller, as the detective, hot on the killers trail, starts to doubt if everything is as it seems.

I am always interested in what students can achieve. WHAT GOES UP is the perfect example of a great idea combined with hard determination.
The film follows the story of Lee, a passionate (but struggling) coder and his best friend designer Ray as they pursue creating the greatest video game they can possibly imagine. Whilst doing this, Lee is also battling his nerve to talk to Sarah the girl of his dreams who works in the office below. But when the universe mysteriously gifts him a cube resembling a popular puzzle toy, Lee sees his fate change for the better. Lee soon becomes his own worst enemy as he has to choose between his own happiness and that of those around him.
