Falling in Love

The Godalming Pepperpotby Michael van Koetsveld

This is the first project to receive a GFS Funding Award, which was confirmed in February 2016.

Following submission of the project details to the Committee in December 2015, two members were assigned to "mentor" the project and find out if it was worthy of support by the GFS. A second meeting was held, at which the applicant had to answer questions to assuage the concerns of the Committee. After this, the mentors reported back and at a closed meeting, it was agreed to fund the project to the tune of approximately 12.5% of its total budget.

In return for the funding, the Society will get regular updates about progress, a "making of" presentation as post-production nears completion and, before the film hits the festival circuit, a private screening to the members.

The Story

A depressed teenage girl and her damaged boyfriend and how, through their love for each other, they plan a final exit.

The script is finished, casting is under way and detailed rehearsal and shooting schedules are being drawn up. Some familiar names have agreed to be in the cast, such as Tim Faraday and Johanne Murdock. In addition, some local talent is being lined up for casting sessions to see which part in the script they would best suit.
