Last days of our Kickstarter campaign

Greetings from Hackney where I’m looking after a sleepy dog.

I’m pleased to say that our Kickstarter campaign for our film ‘The Village in the Morning’, featured here, has been a great success. With just under two days left we’re funded to 80%.

Below is a thank you note to all our supporters.

The campaign is running until Tuesday, 01 September at 16.00, and we are also taking donations via PayPal also to jamesbeharris(at) All monies are refunded if we miss out.

We are grateful for every single donation of every single size.

Kickstarter for ‘The Village in the Morning’

Hey folks. The crowdfunding campaign for the forthcoming comedy-horror film, ‘The Village in The Morning‘, which I wrote, is up and running here. You can read about the film, and, if you like what you hear, give a donation, via Visa, AmEx or Mastercard, or by PayPal to jamesbeharris(at) Donations can be as little as £1, and every penny helps. And of course, all monies are refunded if the campaign is not successful.

Please be in touch if you have any questions. And please, spread the word.

I made it shine
But you didn’t love me
So I let the snow fall.
But still, you didn’t love me
So I became a snowflake
And joined it all.
