Apocalypse Anytime Now is an upcoming short film from London based director Jen Lim. The film follows a young boy, Samuel who suffers from eco-anxiety; the constant fear that the world around him is ending.
Samuel is also struggling with adapting to life with his new step-mum, this combined with his fear for the future keeps him trapped in his bedroom. The film shows Samuel learning to confront his fears and dream of a more hopeful future with both his step-mum and the world outside him.
Director Jen and producer Tracy Kiryango are raising funds for the film to cover 6 key production costs: location, travel, equipment, festivals, costume, set design. They are raising money on Crowdfunder with any donations accepted, with benefits starting from £10— which will see your name in the credits of the film.
As a film about eco-anxiety the filmmakers are making every effort to be an ecological production. They will be using only reusable bottles on set, partnering with businesses to offer eco-friendly rewards on their crowdfunder and following BAFTA approved principal ALBERT; a production calculator that monitors the environmental impact of a film set.
The crowdfunder is live until Tuesday 22nd Sept, and you can donate here.
