£360raised of £2,500 target by 14 supporters

    Weʼve raised £360 to help fund the short film 'HARESHI'.

    Funded on Monday, 18th December 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.



    'Hareshi' looks at the devastating aftermath of an air-strike on an Iraqi home from a grieving mother's point of view.

    Gordon's controversial script began life as a pared-down short story and evolved into a short play. Enthusiastically received on its debut at The Lemon Tree in Aberdeen in May 2017, it went on to win Best Drama at the 2017 Swanwick Writer's Summer School.

    With a talented, experienced crew whose credits span a range of award-winning short films, as well as TV shows such as 'River City' and 'Outlander', Gordon and BAFTA-nominated producer Katie White ('Middle Man', 'When A Man Loves A Woman') now want to transfer this thought-provoking and heart-breaking story to the big screen.


    There are many ways you can help contribute to this film. Any contribution is greatly appreciated.


    £10 - To show our gratitude, all contributors will receive a special thank you in the credits.

    £20 - A special thank you in the credits and an exclusive link to the film to enable you to watch it prior to it being screened.

    £50 and above - An invitation to a private screening and all of the benefits above.


    Gordon and Katie have already raised a small amount of funding for 'Hareshi', but know that the film cannot be made without your help. Our gratitude for that help, however, extends beyond what you can afford to give financially. We appreciate your words of support, your continued sharing of our progress, your favours, and your time. It's hugely appreciated.

    Much love, Gordon and Katie.
