I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty tired of the stuff coming out of Hollywood these days – generally playing it safe, shallow, and predictable, and putting spectacle before content or vision. When I was invited recently to a party thrown by a small Cambridge ‘film collective’ I thought I’d be seeing some enthusiastic but amateur student films, but instead got some really tight, well-made, imaginative work by some very talented, very passionate, and very capable people, and I thought: THIS! THIS is what I want to see!

They’ve got a Kickstarter to make a feature – naturally, something low-key and simple like a post-zombie-apocalypse action buddy movie with a four-armed blue alien and a floating head. You know, your typical indie flick. But going by their other films I think it might be really good! 

So if you want some fresh new entertainment, a small way to say ‘no’ to the Hollywood machine, or something fun to look forward to now Edgar Wright isn’t directing Ant-Man, please support these young up-and-comers. They’ve only got four days left and a long way to go, so every penny helps …
