How you can get involved in Rhiwbina scifi film

A made-in-Rhiwbina scifi film is offering fans the chance to get involved in the project from today (March 1).

With perks ranging from a signed script to a digital poster, from a soundtrack download to an on-screen credit, the crowdfunding campaign for this made-in-Wales film appropriately went live on St David’s Day.

Annalium 8 is set in a world where all animal life has been wiped out. But a scientist in full bio-hazard kit and with a life-support machine in tow, discovers a young girl in a forest, apparently fit and well.

Written and co-produced by Rhiwbina born-and-bred Rob Lancey, much of the film was also shot locally. Rob’s co-producer is our own Andy Weltch of local communications consultancy Weltch Media.

Now in post-production, the 10-minute short is expected to be completed in the summer, after the trailer was released last week.

The crowdfunding campaign is designed to help pay for the post-production stage, including editing, sound design, and a local screening, as well as entry in festivals to reach audiences around the world.

“So far we’ve been able to fund the project ourselves,” said Rob. “But now we need help to get across the finish line and get the film out to the world.”

Directed by Andrew Griffin, Annalium 8 stars award-winning Francesca Louise White and introduces Minaii Baelfire, who has the distinction of being the first Black Young Elsa in a stage production of Frozen.

“We have a brilliantly talented cast and crew and now a top-class team putting the footage into shape,” said Rob. “We were always determined to create a high-quality product that we could all be proud of, and the trailer gives an indication of how good it will be”.

You can find the crowdfunding campaign here.
