Loughborough Echo Article – 7th August 2019

Here’s a transcript of a recent Loughborough Echo article by David Godsall featuring SURVEILLED:

Surveilled will be filmed in the Loughborough area

Chance to get involved in new Indy horror movie

Businesses and local people are being offered the chance to get involved in a new movie being filmed in the Loughborough area.

Raya Films, the team behind an award-winning Loughborough-shot feature film, have cast well-known local actor, Johnny Kinch, in their next production, a horror film called Surveilled.

This follows the success of their debut movie Do Something, Jake, which was shot entirely in and around Loughborough, and which was recently signed up for worldwide distribution by an American distributor.

Surveilled is a full-length creepy horror movie to be filmed around Loughborough that embraces the surge in demand for ‘smart horror’ films – less gore with more humour and story originality mixed with complex characters.

To help fund the production, the Surveilled team launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Funds raised will go toward cast and crew fees, transport and catering.

The campaign smashed its target and is now at 141 per cent funded, but there are still many ways for people to become part of the Surveilled gang and support ‘indie’ film.

The movie is now in pre-production where they are attaching cast, booking locations and locking in dates, but are still appealing for extras, catering, locations and props.

A spokesperson said: “We are ready to roll, but we still need a small sum of money to help toward actor, crew and location fees.

“At Raya Films we go the extra mile to secure aesthetic and intriguing filming locations that are as much a part of the storyline as the characters. We also like to seek out new and exciting talent as well as seasoned professionals to star in our films, so a little extra cash can help us fulfil our mission.

“Through past crowdfunding campaigns we have been able to identify the most popular perks that benefit both the project and you – our valued supporters. So we have designed perks that are simple to understand, quick to receive and affordable”.

Depending on how much they donate, supporters can get a credit on the IMDb movie website, an acting workshop with Johnny Kinch, a film credit – or even an executive producer credit.
