A coming of age film with a twist is going to be shot in Aylesbury soon – but film makers need your help to complete the job.

The film, entitled The White Dwarf, will be shot at The Buckinghamshire Yeoman Pub in Bedgrove, and is the brainchild of Aaron Medway, 22, Sam Blakeney-Edwards, 21 and Bex Donnelly, 25.

Telling the story of Adam, a young man who heads to his usual pub to tell his friends he has just been offered a big career break in ‘the city’, the film aims to be relatable and funny.

And as Aaron and Sam are both from Aylesbury, attended John Colet School, and now work for a film company in London, the plot is drawing on their own experiences of saying goodbye.

Bex said: “We all met through working out of the same office in Soho. We are all really creative and making this film is something nice to do outside of work.

“We’ve aimed to keep the film light-hearted, funny and think it’s going to be really relatable.

“We want the viewer to feel empathy with the characters.”

In order to make the film, the trio have set up a fundraising drive, to raise the £5,000 needed.

In exchange for sponsorship, backers get a range of treats for varying amounts of cash, including tickets to the premier of the film. Visit www.phundee.com/reward/campaign/the-white-dwarf
