THE LOST GENERATION FOR SALFORD
 

Star date: 12th May 2012

FREEDOM, CYBERWARFARE AND CELEBRITY IN NEW SALFORD FEATURE FILM…

A top new feature film by Salford based producers, Future Artists, centred on an armed underground movement fighting back against a corrupt media and reality tv executions, is set to hit the big screen later this year. But the co-operative company wants everyone to help them complete The Lost Generation movie by crowd funding an edit suite which will then be available for community use…

Full details of the movie and the crowd fund here…

The Lost Generation looks set to be a top, top film. Shot around Manchester and Salford, and using the recent massive anti-Government protests as a backdrop, it stars Save Salford campaigner and tv actress Vicky Connett as a reality tv star, called SJ, who is put into gladiatorial combat on telly in a kind of live execution. Or, as the blurb states…

"Set in a dystopic present-day world, public executions have come back into vogue - only with a gory, reality tv twist. The Lost Generation exist in a world governed by a corrupt media who have the police in their pocket. Able to scandalise the government at the drop of a phone, the media creates propaganda on how to live a life…

"… But there is hope. They are called The Unknown. An underground movement, fragmented youth in revolt, rebels with a cause, are waiting for the right moment to strike back…The Unknown rescue SJ from her certain fate. Despite being part of the walking dead, SJ is taken away and shown a world where choice is a possibility. But the only problem, is, she will have to become the evil she is trying to escape…"

Sound good?

"Basically it is an allegory for events that are happening right now, everything from the phone hacking scandal, to police being paid off, to politicians stirring up kind of panic buying" says Mark Ashmore of Future Artists, who is also behind all the recent creative happenings at the Black Lion pub 

"It's about how the media is used to manipulate the general public into thinking one thing when they go away and do something else" he adds "It's a comment on all that. It's thriller, a mainstream film, but a thinking person's film that will make you go away and say `Hang on, that's happening right now!'"

The Lost Generation has already been shot, and, as well as featuring Vicky also stars a host of well recognised Salford actors plus tens of thousands of demonstrators who were on the recent anti-cuts marches. The movie is due to be released on December 20th - the week that cults believe will be the end of the world – but the producers have run out of cash and are looking for crowd funding to buy an editing suite which will be used to finish the film and then be available for community use.

They are looking to raise $4000 dollars (around £2000?) from around the world in the next three weeks and have already got almost $1,500 via an indiegogo funding campaign. Future Artists is asking anyone who wants to see the film finished and out there to donate.

I struggle with £2,000 for an editing suite. It feels like it's either too much or too little. I am also not quite sure what this "the community" thing is. Who's that, and how do you qualify to use this suite once it's done? Back in the day we used to call this "completion funding". How does it differ? Also, is it "around £2,000" or isn't it? Why is there a question mark inside those parentheses?
