A troupe of Devon filmmakers are undertaking a new project, and they need your help.

Director/Producer Chris Thomas, along with producers Richard Standen, Tom Stanley and Dan Haslam are happy to present... The Nightman of Nevermoor.

The film takes place in the fictional Devon village of Nevermoor. Eleven year old Nick Neary has come to live with his estranged father after two years apart. But the village is in a dilemma; two film students have gone missing, locals claim an unknown figure has been lurking around the village at night, and an ominous self-proclaimed hunter has shown up to stalk it. As Nick and his father struggle to re-connect, they're thrown into the unravelling mystery taking place within the village. Could the Nightman indeed be an otherworldly creature? Can anyone trust the hunter? Is it all an elaborate hoax? And, perhaps more importantly, will anyone show up for the village fete?

The film is being funded through Kickstarter, an online all-or-nothing crowd-funding platform that will enable the filmmakers to reach their target budget by way of public support and donations. What's great about the system is that in return for donations, all funders will receive unique perks. Unfortunately, without acheiving this target, the film cannot be made. The film requires YOUR participation to come into being. This needn't be a donation... It can simply be a case of spreading the word. With your help, the mystery of the Nightman can be solved once and for all.

This is a fantastic local project aiming to screen at festivals internationally, thus helping to boost the cultural and artistic status of the South West, and hopefully laying the foundations for future Devon-based film productions.

For more information on the project, you can visit the Kickstarter fundraising page of the Nightman of Nevermoor Facebook site, where you can contact the filmmakers directly.

Beware... The Nightman is coming.
