Support for #Credence GLBT Sci-Fi film is Beautiful
Director Mike Buonaiuto creates stunning trailer for Credence, a first of it’s kind Sci-Fi film that will challenge the way gay characters are portrayed in film. After posting the project on the social fundraising site Indigogo, the project smashed it’s 6,000£ target in only 3 days. In fact, the film raised 8K£ within the first 72 hours of posting.
The support has continued to grow in the following week and the film is now closing in on 20,000£ in raised funds for the project. The additional money will be put toward making an even better product than originally envisioned with some of the money going toward film festival submissions and more stunning visual effects.
The film trailer, while only 90 seconds long, manages to fire a bullet right to the heart of the national debate on marriage equality and glbt family rights. The success of the fundraising is a testament to our pent-up need to see better representation of our families in film. The film goes beyond a niche project directed to the gay community. It poignantly catapults the very notion of “what is family” into the international spotlight.

#Credence tells the story of a family torn apart during the last evacuation on earth after violent storms have made survival impossible. Hope has been found in the form of new worlds that support human life, however due to limited rocket capacity and life expectancy only children are permitted to evacuate, and even then – only the rich have ended up getting tickets. Our short film follows 2 fathers’ decision to make the ultimate sacrifice to give up all their possessions to ensure the survival of their daughter, and the entire human race.
