Story

Hi all,

As a tribute to my late best friend Kieron, whose death has left a huge hole in my life, I have written a script and we have started shooting my feature film to bring awareness and hopefully to help prevent suicide.

We have shot over 90% and have three main locations left to shoot.

If you would like to know more about Life After, Kieron or myself please watch the video below.

Inspired by true events

This film will cover the often ignored and deeply important subject of suicide and was inspired by true events. Our aim is for the film to raise awareness with genuine honesty and do justice to those who have knowledge in the subject matter along with doing our best to educate those who do not. This is not a film about suicide, however this is about the trail of devastation it leaves after someone has taken this tragic path. Highlighting the terrible knock on effect it has on the people left behind from one person’s troubled act. My hope is it will help answer the call of others who are desperately in search of support, to think that this film may one day help change someone’s mind or make them think of the family and friends that they would leave behind and how it destroys them, that is the driving force behind this huge struggle and sacrifice to get this film made.

Film Synopsis

Life After is a story that is inspired from true events which follows the lives of four main characters; James, Lee, Kayla and Charlotte. This films main purpose is to highlight the devastating and delicate situation of suicide but the film itself is not about the suicide it is about the trail of devastation it leaves after someone has taken this tragic path. The film will tell the story of James to the point he is no longer with us and then will follow on with what happens to the friends and family who are left in the wake of James’ action.

Support we have so far

Recently we have been working alongside our local Mind charity, South East and Central Essex Mind. We are proud to be helping our local community by helping raise funds for our local Mind. We hope that we can raise awareness for what Mind do and help them raise more funds in our process of this film and also in hosting more charity events and helping them raise awareness for themselves. If you would like to help us and Mind you will find funding options where we donate to South East and Central Essex Mind. We also plan on helping with some filming to help promote what they do as they haven't been able to get the funding for this aspect of advertisement, please help us to help them.

The Bearded Villains Essex Chapter

Bearded Villains Essex Chapter was started as part of beardedvillainsuk in 2015 and in 2018 we was made an official chapter of Bearded Villains which was started by @von_knox to change the way people see bearded men. We all work instilling the mission statement of bearded villains.

"To unite Bearded Men of all cultures, races and creed in a Brotherhood devoted to Loyalty, Honor and Respect toward all people, Dedicated to the betterment of mankind through fraternity, charity and kindness".

The Essex chapter are small in numbers but we make up in the things we do to give back to charities.

With our captain Drewbiddles we are looking to fully develop how we give back, looking into local charities in the Essex area which will benefit the most from the money we raise

Why Donate?

Any money we raise will go towards props, equipment, locations for the film and paying the cast and crew and musicians for the musical scores. Entirely for production costs, nothing else.

This is a very serious topic we believe is often not covered honestly or is overlooked too quickly, swept under a rug so to speak. That in itself is almost as big a crime as the tragic subject matter itself. We want this film to be realistic and honest, avoiding making it either overdramatic or dancing around the subject matter in an attempt to sugar coat the reality of it. I know deep down this is a topic that people care about, but sadly it is also a topic that is not given the attention it so desperately needs.

What will you get in return?

Any contribution would greatly be appreciated, every £1 will greatly help more than you may ever know.

We have a few donation options where if you donate the amount of that option we will make a donation to South East and Central Essex Mind who although operate under Mind Charity, have to raise funds for themselves.

    What a worthwhile Story. I am a mum who lost her son to suicide and can relate to this story so well. Life after suicide is immensely difficult but I think a film like this can only help. X
