Tara Donnell, an actress and singer from Canada living in Luxembourg, is producing a short film in Luxembourg, the idea for which was born last year when she organised a training for actors through the Giles Foreman Center for Acting (GFCA) in London.

Last year’s group of students created characters and played with different story ideas. Nadia Masri came on board as director and is taking these characters and their stories and creating a short film, in English, reflecting life here in Luxembourg.

The film project is entitled Oleander; it is short film set in modern day Luxembourg based on the characters from the TV series which Tara is developing. The story unfolds at a charity event where family issues come to the surface when the organiser’s step-daughter crashes the party and threatens to ruin everything. It is set in modern day Luxembourg, and will be filmed at the Abbeye de Neumünster between 4-6 May.

They have the motivation, skilled and dedicated people and some of the funds to make this short film a success. None of the actors will be paid as it is the last phase of the year of learning with GFCA Luxembourg. But there are always inescapable costs on any production, so they have launched this crowd-funding campaign to raise enough money to cover all those costs; some of which are for location, equipment, props, food and drinks for the cast and crew, to pay the extras and to pay all of the film crew for their hard work.

Half of the €2,500 has been raised in the first few days of the crowdfunding campaign, with 58 days to go. With contributions ranging from €10 to €750, there are a number of different levels of investment and can certainly suit those new to both the business of film production and to crowdfunding.
