Greg & Co are looking to raise £15,000 in the next few weeks with several investment packages ranging from £5 to £100. What's more, you'll get something for your money (apart from the satisfaction of supporting what is in all likeliness is going to be a wicked movie). Depending on how much you invest, you could be the recipient of a DVD, tickets to the premier or the opportunity to be an extra in the film.
Could Communion turn out to be a shoddy amateur monstrosity like Tales from the Quadead Zone? Unlikely, Greg has previous form; he's already helmed a few award winning pictures. I was impressed by his debut effort, The Plague, an energetic slice of social realism set in a London housing estate; a film that was produced on a shoestring budget of around £3,500. Having recently watched his latest short film, Bruised, a character study of a bare knuckle boxer, it is clear he has developed his skills as a director. It is a slicker affair but still has the unshakable bite of an angry pitbull. I'm looking forward to seeing Communion develop as a project, and even more excited about eventually seeing the film. In the meantime, I guess I'll have to make do with catching up with his other two feature films, Kapital and SSDD: Same Shit Different Day.
