ALFRED TAYLOR GAUNT
The aim of this project is to create a new genre of film and portray narrative dance in a new medium. "We will be creating a series of dance films over the next few months. We hope you will be able to support us in some way. Sponsorship will be credited accordingly and we will be doing our utmost to get these films seen by as many people as possible. This will include the use of targeted social media advertising. All dancers are recent graduates from full time dance training, all currently working in the industry, and the crew a talented creative team looking to make waves with something iconic in the industry. After releasing these videos, we will begin showcasing events. We will be approaching TV channels across the United Kingdom for assistance in promoting the narrative choreography and language of dance. We will be moving towards a new era of dance and entertainment and invite you to both support and move with us. Alfred Taylor Gaunt has gone from strength to strength with his choreography, as well as winning extensive prizes and recognition while still studying at Performing Arts School. He has twice been invited to choreograph a full piece for The National Youth Ballet of Great Britain, receiving fantastic reviews. In addition, Alfred co-founded FTG Productions, working to develop and produce new British musical theatre. Alfred Taylor Gaunt has also had his work recognised by leading choreographers such as Matthew Bourne and Drew McOnie".      "Seventeen year old Alfred Taylor Gaunt showed real potential in his Khaos at the Keaton Cafe, a ballet set to jazz music that followed the frenzied events of a new restaurant's opening night. His choreography was extremely fun and original with a particularly creative pas de deux", Dancing Times, November 2013.      "Petty's work captured the pathos, self-hatred and suppressed fury of Pierrot with precision, thanks to the choreography of Alfred Taylor Gaunt, who was fully to the pitch of how to interpret this work through movement", britishtheatre.com.

F***, MARRY, KILL
F***, MARRY, KILL ... what if it wasn't just a game? ... three sisters traveling through the Mojave Desert on their way to their brother's wedding. A sinister turn of events leads them to a twisted, maddening town where a psychotic, cult-like community kidnaps women and forces them to marry, procreate or be sacrificed. These residents seem hell-bent on making it their final destination. "We are three actresses - Janine Gateland, Catherine Eure and Rachel Ryling - who are producing F***, Marry, Kill. Created and written by us, F***, Marry, Kill is a short thriller, directed by Scott Donovan. We can't wait to tell you all about it and take you on our journey in getting this awesome film made! We have a wonderful script, concept, amazing locations, fabulous cast and crew, and now awesome footage. The cast includes Timothy Carhart, known for Thelma and Louise, Ghostbusters, The Hunt for Red October and Witness. We are also pleased to say we have the lovely Lorna Scott, known for Wanted, Little Britain USA, The Guilt Trip, Little Boy, Sordid Lives and HBO TV series, True Blood. The concept for the film started with Rachel's connection with Lake Isabella. Her husband is from this rural town, three hours north of Los Angeles. She originally was introduced to it when she met his family for the first time. On that very first visit she knew the setting would make a captivating location for a film and kept it in the back of her mind for a possible future project. When the three of us got together and decided to make a horror film, that's when the idea of shooting it in Lake Isabella was born. From there we had a concept meeting to create the story to best serve the purpose of this location. Once we had developed the idea around three sisters traveling through the Mojave Desert to their brother's wedding, everything started to fall into place. The film was originally intended to be called Lake Isabella - but ultimately we decided to change the name to F***, Marry, Kill. For those not familiar with this game, it is wildly popular, especially with Howard Stern listeners. The general idea is that you are given three names of celebrities or people you all know and then you have to choose which one you would F***, which one you would marry, and which one you would kill. It made an interesting title for our film based on the fact that the characters are playing this game on their road trip and it also has a nice play on words for the events that start to happen to them once they reach the town. We are now looking to raise $5,000.00 to get the movie edited in post-production. Money raised will also go towards further pick up shots with the crew, music, marketing, festival fees and Indiegogo fees, all before we can get it out to the festival circuit around the world. We are now half way there and need your awesome help. Would really love your support in any way you can either by donating to our Indiegogo page below or spreading the word, following our social media and liking our Facebook page".

AF/PL004 BRITISH STUDENT FILM FESTIVAL
British Student Film Festival is looking for partnership and patronage support. The festival has a tiered sponsorship programme, ranging from Festival Sponsor to Awards Sponsor. All sponsors receive prominent logo placement on promotional print and web materials. Similarly, opportunities for further exposure can be accommodated during the festival, including the screening of adverts at subsidised rates and the distribution of promotional materials. British Student Film Festival is a national exhibition of student work in Newcastle, Liverpool, Bristol and London. The festival holds an uncompromising stance: that every film is screened and the entry requirements must be affordable. The festival will then culminate in an awards ceremony to celebrate the students' work and the winning films are announced. "We hope to not only help those filmmakers with a desire to enter the industry as a career but also to demonstrate the creativity and vision in each student. As an inclusive festival we aim to undermine any false standards to which their creativity has previously been held - we will not grade their vision. Awards will be provided for films which are exemplary in their execution, but the festival and our board of patrons defend the creative vision of each student filmmaker as unique and unquantifiable". Full sponsorship details and benefits are available on request. Contact: Francesca Creed. Address: 46 Keyes Road, London NW2 3XA. E-mail:

FILMAID INTERNATIONAL UK
Communities in crisis need knowledge and empowerment. FilmAid provides both, to millions of people suffering the effects of war, poverty, displacement or disaster. Film screenings provide a way to reach many people at once, overcoming literacy boundaries, bringing forth information where it is needed and inspiring hope where it is lacking. Since 1999, FilmAid has worked in partnership with other global aid organizations to bring critical information to more than a million people, in places as diverse as Macedonia, Kenya, Tanzania, Afghanistan and the US Gulf Coast. FilmAid engages communities to shape the messages most needed for their survival and strength. The charity works with communities to create films and videos in their own voice, and to show these films in the most impactful and appropriate settings. FilmAid screenings range from intimate discussion of forty people to large outdoor screenings, reaching tens of thousands at one time. FilmAid UK is looking for sponsorship for fundraising events and more. Contact: Vicky Suzman. Address: 11 Thurloe Square, London SW7 2TA. Tel.: 0207 581 6546. E-mail: vicky@filmaid.org.

GREENPARK IMAGES
Greenpark Images has a unique film archive of UK social history going back to the 1950s. Since there is a growing national concern about the need for teenagers to appreciate the importance of Respect and Responsibility and their role in society as citizens, the company has recently started using its film archive to produce a series of educational courseware modules on DVD, for classroom use in the teaching of Key Stage 3 Citizenship in UK schools. The first module, on the subject of "Respect", which provides illustrations from earlier decades for use in classroom discussion, has been produced in collaboration with staff and students at a secondary school, with the support of a small Strategic Commissioning Educational Grant from MLA South West. It is proving very popular with teachers and students who have used it and Greenpark Images is now embarking on producing the next DVD module, about Responsibility, in a similar format, also with a small grant from MLA South West. The company is keen to begin to market these modules nationally to all secondary schools for their Citizenship classes, but this will require about £15,000 in additional funding for each module for marketing, distribution and the clearance of rights. They are therefore keen to find a sponsor who would be interested in being associated with this project and, ideally, provide complementary opportunities to promote awareness of the courseware and of the important topics covered. They are also seeking a sponsorship partner to work with to identify other imaginative ways of using their film archive for educational and informational projects.

I WILL TELL INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
The I Will Tell International Film Festival is a large and strong community that understands the power of story. "We have a variety of sponsorship opportunities available to help you tell yours. The tenth anniversary of the I Will Tell International Film Festival will be a spectacular celebration of ten years of showcasing award-winning films from over twenty-five countries, covering a variety of genres from micro-animations to epic feature-length dramas, followed by thought-provoking and inspirational post-screening discussions. The festival was inadvertently named by a young girl, called Anel, in an impoverished area of Mozambique, who wanted the world to know her story and the story of so many others around the world. I Will Tell is run with a Christian ethos and showcases the most innovative and exceptional films made by filmmakers of any faith or none, addressing issues such as war and peace, relationship, faith, family, business, government, gender issues, race and much more. These are films that, just by being screened, help to empower, support, teach, encourage and challenge people around the world. But it is the inspirational post-screening discussions after each film - with the audience, filmmakers and subject matter experts - that contribute to making I Will Tell unlike any other festival in the world. The festival serves a culturally diverse and vibrant audience of mostly early 20s to mid-50s men and women who are active in film or the creative industries, passionate about social renewal and purpose and/or are thought leaders or specialists in the themes addressed by the wide range of films. Sponsorship opportunities are available for the main festival which runs from 30th August to 9th September in 2016; and also for the monthly screenings in the run up to the main festival of the best ten films in the festival in the past nine years, starting November 2015".

Kala Phool is an arts development agency that strives to make diverse artforms accessible, fun and low cost. Currently not core funded, Kala Phool needs financial support from like-minded organisations that want to work with it. Projects Kala Phool develops and delivers include the Brighton Hip Hop Festival, which boasts a position as the UK's largest celebration of Hip Hop culture. Kala Phool currently works globally with existing and emerging partners, as well as those from across the UK, pushing the boundaries in making all the artforms under the Hip Hop 'banner' visible. The festival is keen to have sponsors come and support their vision - they are open to more than one supporter.     Mother India 21st Century Remix - this project is currently under development and involves the rescoring of the iconic and Oscar award winning Indian epic, Mother India. It will be produced using the talent of the world's top Turntablist, bringing the film to a fresh new audience with India and Pakistan's independence as its inspiration.     Frieze Box - imagine, a box covered in canvas in the middle of your town, school or on a roundabout, with artists working on it in rotation. This is the concept and currently Frieze Box is being developed to work with younger people, in schools and with national festivals. It's a way of taking the art to the people and allowing them to have a go. Quality is foremost in Kala Phool's visioning and the agency works with the best of the best, the most respected and credible artists ... but also in their own right they value Kala Phool's work. Kala Phool works to support under-developed artform sectors that may not necessarily have a voice. It advocates on strategic, national and international levels with a variety of agencies.

     AF/PL014     NOTTING HILL ORCHESTRA FOR FILM MUSIC
The Notting Hill Orchestra for Film Music is a newly-formed, London-based orchestra made up of both professional and non-professional musicians. The purpose of the orchestra is to perform exclusively film music, popular classical pieces and arranged popular songs. Notting Hill Orchestra for Film Music provides its members with a vehicle for enjoying and developing their musical talents and encourages awareness and appreciation of film music among its members and the public at large. "The orchestra offered its first concert in October 2014, just three months after it was founded, performing selected film soundtracks and popular classical works. The feedback was fantastic and many people who attended immediately expressed interest in future performances. The second concert was in April 2015 and tickets were completely sold out. Notting Hill Orchestra for Film Music is funded principally by non-professional member subscriptions and by concert ticket sales, but we need to rely on additional sources of income such as corporate sponsorship in order to grow and improve the quality of our performances. Money we raise through sponsorship allows us to pay for our professional musicians and music hire and thus to continue to bring our music to the local area. It also allows us to pay for film music repertoire copyrights that would otherwise be impossible for our players and audiences to enjoy. For sponsors, our website and concert programmes provide opportunities to bring your organisation to a wider audience, thus potentially generating new customer leads, and also enhancing your organisation's reputation in the community through sponsorship of the arts. We have several sponsorship packages designed to mutually benefit corporate sponsors as well as the orchestra". Contact: Ms Rossi Dusheva.

AF/021 ODD BOY FILM
Odd Boy Film offers the opportunity to sponsor a short film based on the poem My Black Skin, written by Nicholas Pinnock. The film is inspired by Black History Month. "We are looking for a small amount of sponsorship to enable us to go into production. The piece is primarily a 'talking heads' in style, but with more movement, shot in black and white and with a fairly loose camera style. The length of the piece will be approximately three minutes. Throughout the film we intercut between different people: men, women and children from all walks of life, unknown, known and well-known from all over England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, reciting either a word, a line or a verse from the poem. We will see these people in the various locations where they live or work, so as to get across the feeling that the people the poem refers to, and is for, are those who are these people - everyday people from different walks of life, that do different things and may have different levels of reference/relevance in the piece, but that all share a common bond: the fact that black skin is important to them. Intercut into the poem will be film and pictures of iconic people from history: Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, Sidney Poitier, William Wilberforce, JFK, Rosa Parks, Jesse Owens and Abraham Lincoln. We will feature a black albino and someone doing sign language; a foreign language speaker; and someone with limited abilities, so that as many people as possible will be represented by, and will identify with, the piece. We also feel it necessary to include people from other races with an established link to black culture, either through what they do for/with the black community or if they are linked to it through marriage or are parents to black, mixed race children. Our aim is have two to three charities on board, such as the ACLT and the Skin Cancer Research Fund, to help raise awareness. We will look to submit to broadcast by the end of October. Please invest in a worthwhile creative and social piece". Contact: Ryan Elliott. Address: 6b Friern Road, London SE22 0AT. Tel.: 0044 7976727611. E-mail:

    AF/023     SANDOW THE MOVIE
Sandow is the extraordinary story of a legendary old time strongman. The man you may never have heard of, his story you will never forget. Before bodybuilding existed, one man dared to challenge the status quo and build something new. Sandow is the fascinating and untold story of a cultural icon whom everyone wanted a piece of. "I'm Alexander Cooper, Producer of Sandow, aka Launceston Elliot. I have previous experience in films such as The Imitation Game and Woman In Gold (see
www.imdb.me/alexandercooper). Andrei Lenart, aka Sandow, is a professional actor and model, who appeared as Arctic Guard in Kingsman. Andrei was recently featured in Cosmopolitan Slovenia and compared to a young Arnold Schwarzenegger! 'Sandow is an interesting screenplay that revolves around a fascinating subject ... An interesting and untold story ... truly powerful stuff' - www.bluecatscreenplay.com. Sandow. What builds the perfect man? Written by Alexander Cooper, who will appear as Launceston Elliot alongside Andrei Lenart as Sandow, it will be a showcase of some of the world's best new acting, writing and directorial talent - as well as an unforgettable journey into other times and places. Think Gatsby meets Rocky meets Chariots of Fire! Sandow is inspired by two real world athletes, Launceston Elliot, the first British Olympic Champion, and his trainer Eugen Sandow. It's important that the campaign gets sponsored because Sandow is an important film which needs backers to bring it to the screen. There are not many films made about sports nowadays, showing the beginnings of the professional sportsman and Olympic athletes combined with a period setting. The film deals with universal themes - I believe there is a Sandow in everyone, striving to build something that outlasts them.

    AF/024     SPONSOR A DREAM
Sue Kimpton-Brown is looking for a sponsor to help her children realise their dreams. "I have two daughters, aged 9 and 11. I am biased because they are mine, but other industry professionals have described them as '... the most formidable talent and an all round triple threat'. They have been highly recommended by producers, directors and all who have worked with them: '... two of the best talents my agency has worked with in many years'; '... superlative polish and attack and are 100% dedicated to their art'; '... the next Meryl Streep'. So, as you'll appreciate, I have my work cut out! After being headhunted and invited to live and work in America (LA and NY), I am giving up everything to move to America to help them realise their potential. I am giving up work and have rented accommodation to make this happen. I'm currently in talks with US attorneys, processing their O1 working visas. Not being in a position to fund the visa costs (our commitment to the industry), and not in a favourable position to approach banks, I have applied for various grants for the arts; but of course it can take months to obtain a decision. I am eagerly searching for sponsorship of approx £10,000.00, purely for the visa and associated legal costs. I have full documentation to back up my situation. We have also been advised that just one commercial is worth $65,000.00, yet they have been put forward for TV series and films. I am more than than willing to draw up legal documents for full reimbursement, plus interest. I will also ensure you follow and are involved in their journey, with full recognition if a successful sponsor is found. This is a heartfelt request for sponsorship". Contact: Sue Kimpton-Brown.
