what is tree about?
Tree is a multi-layered film, our aim with Tree is to create a thought provoking film that leaves a mark.
The story of Tree is one that is relatable, yet surreal in many aspects. It begins with our main protagonist, Adam, as we follow him on an emotional journey to find a new form of existence.
For Tree we are looking for funding towards the production of the film and we are also looking for funding towards our festival plan and marketing so we can do a screening of the film and spread the film to as many people as possible.
We are going to screen the film in Colchester and hopefully if we achieve our extended goal we will be able to screen the film in more locations across the country.
We have provided a few stills from the rehearsal filming sessions throughout the description.
