Raven Waiting is a fantasy adventure film being made in the UK and currently raising funds online for production.
Dan Rowbottom is the director and brains behind the film which he hopes will entertain people as well as provide opportunities for UK talent. Dan is a comics book illustrator and filmmaker who’s inspiration for Raven Waiting comes from his love of films like ‘The Dark Crystal’, ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’, ‘Lord of the Rings‘ and ‘Brazil’.
Dan has spent the last two years working with young people, helping them create their own short films and animations. The story of Raven Waiting takes us within the confines of a decaying dickensian town where the inhabitants live in fear of creatures attacking in the night. The film follows Juliette as she is drawn into a story of underground societies and creatures that protect the night.
“The film at first appears to be a dickensian drama but quickly reveals itself to be a fantasy adventure full of creatures, sprites and adventurers” say director Dan Rowbottom. The film will work with local talent in the North West (UK) and is currently featured on www.sponsume.com as part of a crowd funding campaign.
