The film is called Rudie Can't Fail you'll find our website here: http://rudiecantfail.me
This is a 10 minute film. A simple domestic conversation. The first conversation is between a mother and her daughter. The daughters husband, Rudie, is at an interview. He's been unemployed for 4 years and the daughter is planning how she'll spend that first pay packet. Rudie can't fail.
That conversation is 5 minutes - then we see it again. Word for word, shot for shot. But it's a mother and son chatting. The son is planning how he'll spend Rudie's first pay packet. Namely he's taking the whole family, the kids and parents, on holiday. Rudie can't fail.
We’re shooting in June.
We never meet Rudie. We only ever meet Annie and Keli while they chat in their back gardens. Mum (Annie) is drinking a relaxed Yorkshire brew. Keli is drinking from a mug but its definitely not tea.
We see the same conversation twice. Each time the audience will hear the same script, see the same scenes and watch the same characters. But in the first version Keli is Annie’s daughter. In the second, Keli is Annie’s son. Rudie is Keli’s partner and is male in both versions.
We’re in the final days of our crowd funding campaign - just 6 days left to raise our budget! Any support in promoting that would be very welcome. We’re almost halfway funded; at the time of writing this we need approximately £3,000. Our campaign can be found here:http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/rudie-can-t-fail
