A new British short film is funding now: more details here.

The Ebb Tide is a dystopian short film created by a group of students from the University of the Arts in London.

At the heart of the production is climate change and sustainability. The majority of the crew took part in a BAFTA-ran course to ensure that the message of their narrative matches the methods of their filmmaking process. For the crew this entailed setting out their own ‘green goals’ for the production, including purchasing pre-used materials, no single-use plastics onset and ensuring all equipment is ran via rechargeable batteries. This allows them to authentically tell the story of an isolated, and dishevelled man living in a dystopian, plastic-covered wasteland. However, his world is changed forever when a woman is washed ashore.

To not only tell a story that highlights climate change and sustainability, but to ensure it dictates the entire production process, is an important and commendable feat that is worth highlighting. However, for the team behind The Ebb Tide to achieve this support is necessary. The funds they are trying to raise will go towards eco-friendly materials for the production designer, ambitious set designs and ensuring that travel to set is as eco-friendly as possible. Such as hiring electric vehicles and travelling by train rather than multiple cars.
