Popular myth says that a hangman’s noose has to have 13 twist and is banned? Not so. After having talked to an expert on the subject I discovered that this was false and that it would be a major mistake in the film if one was used. The noose that can be seen below is in fact American and developed during the Wild West era.
Some great news we have managed to find a major support for the project. The Boathouse Pub Falmouth. The Boathouse serves great food and amazing drinks. Check out there website or just pop up and have a look! We’ll be holding some events there in the next months as production comes to a close.
The Highwaywoman is a short period drama, check out the plot page for more info.
We have got some great support from some local businesses and individuals. We even have a horse and carriage! Plus a tea urn! Some food is also being provided from Subway and Booker.
However we need your help if the project is going to happen! After the film is finished, we’ll be sending it to festivals around the world as well as to our supporters.
We’re aiming to raise this small amount to give us the chance to prove that period drama can be done on a small/non-existent budget and that the past has a place in media.
This summer a group of passionate young film makers are aiming to bring the past back to life in a 10 minute film with the working title ‘The Highwaywomen’. A short film about the results of the wrong carriage being stolen from resulting in chases traps and showdowns.
We are passionate to prove that a period drama is possible on a extremely low/non existentent budget. An show what young people can do.
The project has already gained a lot of support from some local business including Praze Carriages, Digs Cornwall and Subway but is still looking for Patrons of the arts to help support the project. In return for which they are offering a set of rewards ranging from copies of the film to executive producer credits.
