About Her Independent Film Pitch
Set on the south coast of England, this contemporary film explores the nature of the pursuit of love and loss. Ethan, an everyman in his mid thirties, leads a dull unfulfilled life. The product of conservative parents, his time to find “the right one” is slowly ticking away. Then out of the blue, explodes a bundle of energy and free spirit.
Victoria lives to live. Unaffected by the need to fit into conventional existence, Victoria works only to earn enough to travel the world. And look after her rabbit. But she, like Ethan, has a desire to find an opposite – in her case, someone stable that she can build her future upon. This is a story of opposites attracting and making a perfect whole.
This relationship threatens the security of the people around Ethan. Adam, his best friend from school, relies on Ethan as a friend to live out their teenage years of pubs and clubs, whilst Ethan’s parents still see their son as their little boy – Victoria is far too much woman for their sheltered conservative life.
Whilst Ethan is on a night out, Victoria has a fit and dies. Ethan’s life is ruined and he must try to rebuild it, this time trying to recapture the excitement Victoria showed him. He knows he cannot go back to his boring life...ever. At first, he tries to live through Victoria’s memory, but this takes him deeper into grief and despair, until he faces suicide. Homeless, he feels there is nothing left for him.
He is dragged back from the edge by Anna. She, like Victoria, is free-spirited. She is friends with Victoria and become reacquainted with Ethan when he is at his lowest. She endeavours to help him find ‘new normal’ and write the story of his time with Victoria. She becomes his only support. Everyone else is against it and he feels he is against the world, until she helps him work out what he wants and helps him finally find comfort in his own skin.
For this film we have a Multi Bafta award winning Director on board and a vibrant exciting cast attached. We also have around 40% of the total budget secured and the support from Epilepsy charities across the world. We are also in the final stages of agreeing the script.

Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!
This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.
When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.
Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!
I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
