Now you all might be wondering... with the Covid 19 pandemic, what's happening with Ecstasy.

After months of development and planning we shot our film in January this year. It was amazing but we ran into some issues on the shoot, leaving the film 70% complete. So, we set out a masterplan to go back for one more day to film the shots that we couldn't capture initially and we had to do it fast before world Parkinson's day on April 11th and the car park which we HAVE to film in... gets demolished.

When things changed last Monday in the UK our heads were seriously put into a spin and we've been debating what to do ever since. It felt right to pause PR-ing our crowdfunding efforts, which we're going AMAZING (We hit 50% of our target in 6 days!). As people had different priorities on their minds. But the question remained... should we shoot on March 25th? Fundamentally government advice was that we could still work and as I've been cycling to work each day I've seen that construction sites haven't changed at all which means that the car park will still get demolished.

But this week you may have seen in the news that near enough every UK filming production has ceased, from Eastenders to Hollywood movies. The scenes we need to film involve being in close proximity with 3 members of the team inside a small car! Knowing that members of the cast and crew live with parents and interaction on our part whilst filming is unavoidable (I mean how can a makeup artist social distance?), it just hasn't felt right. More than anything I wanted to be able to pay the film crew because in the space of a few weeks every single one of us has seen our schedules and film shoots evaporate in front of our very eyes. It is certainly the toughest of times for us freelancers because with little to no income and rent to pay difficult times lay ahead.

With all this in mind we made the decision to postpone our filming day which means that we can't complete the film, for now, also without the money raised it's simply not possible financially. Secretly I'd hoped to complete the film before my first child arrives in May, but clearly this won't be the case.

So this is where we are... We're set to go as soon as the tides change and once we're through this and there's a return to normality rest assured that we'll crowdfund the remainder of our target and complete our film. In the meantime stay safe, keep spirits high and exercise where you can. I'll try and provide some updates on the amazing parts of the movie that have taken place so far with stories from our rain-drenched set. It might be a nice relief to hear something else! Our ambition will be to do a big screening on World Parkinson's day 2021 where you'll laugh, cry and dance in your seat! We promise it will be worth the wait!

You're all clued up by now, but to summarise, we filmed our movie in January and ran into some BIG problems. A burst tyre set off a chain of unfortunate events that led to a 4 hour delay and then the BIBLICAl rain came, it was so intense the we had to turn our microphones off and I had to use carrier bags for socks to keep my feet dry. All our hopes and dreams were flooded away and so now we have to go back to film for one more night. The movie is 70% complete and looking epic. Those of us that have seen the current edit of the film laughed and cried. It's a powerful movie full of hope and a movie about diability like no other.

We are 10% funded which is an incredible start! And we are only 90% away from filming on March 25th and completing our movie. It's a race against time to film in the critical car park location before it is literally DEMOLISHED. Apparently it's being turned into a boating centre, who knew (we didn't). We can do it, so please share and convince your friends, family and randoms on the street that this movie will be worth it. Just like before a portion of the money raised is going towards Parkinson's research. We're sticking to our values and that is to raise awareness about Parkinson's disease in the best way possible.

So let's talke about Brian Bovell and the character he plays... IAN. Here's a short excerpt from our script:

Screen Shot 2020-03-11 at 08.40.53.png


During our last crowdfunding campaign a lot of you thought that my Dad, Bob, would be playing the lead role. I tried to message all of you who thought that to let you know that this wasn't the case. My Dad is an inspiration guy, full of warmth and positivity, but he isn't an actor. We were always going to need a phenomenal talent to play the role of Ian. Brian Bovell has been a mainstay on British television since the 80s. He's been in the BBC's Prospects, Hollyoaks, Coronation Street, The Missing, Gimme Gimme Gimme and Hollywood Blockbusters such as Pan. He's seriously talented and I was lucky enough to see him in an amazing play called 'A season in the Congo' at the Young Vic a few years ago. 

Screen Shot 2020-01-15 at 17.04.05.png



Parkinson's disease is a really difficult condition to portray on film, because according to my Dad 'We don't really do much'. There's this mantra - 'Physical difficulty in film is boring' - And without a physical obstacle like a car driving at you, this maxim is true. So don't worry we wrote the best script we could to show off all the nuances of Parkinson's just right. The drugs you take, switching on and switching off, our film shows it all. But how exactly was Brian going to play someone with Parkinson's? Well he needed a teacher didn't he. And who better than my Dad, Bob.

IMG_7999 2 copy.jpg



We had a one day rehearsal with Brian and Nathan and the first half of the day my Dad was able to explain what Parkinson's is like. He tries to explain it by getting you to perform an action. Stand up and lift your finger to your nose and back again. It's easy right! But NOW, do it again but on the way up restrict your muscles and pull your arm down to the ground as you do it. And on the way down keep your muscles trying to keep your arm up. This is physically what Parkinson's feels like. Every muscle in your body working against the natural flow. We asked questions, we got Bob's advice on how to walk and what it feels like. And it was wonderful to see the connection that Brian and my Dad created. You could tell that Brian wanted to get it right and honour him and with each take in the role I could see that he was methodically forcing all the muscles in his body to tense up. This is what people with Parkinson's live with every single moment but believe me when I tell you, Brian got it right. According to my Dad 'He had a great teacher' - We can't wait for you to see his performance!

SO here it is… the big Ecstasy UPDATE ALERT. It’s long, fun… potentially emotional. So here goes…

For those of you that don’t want to read a seriously long update you can watch a 4 minute video here: https://greenlit.fund/project/ecstasy

Screen Shot 2020-02-21 at 16.45.36.png



The big news, the BIG BIG NEWS is that on January 27-28th we shot Ecstasy. We’d been planning throughout the crowdfund and all over Christmas and finalising in January and here we were, 2 days to capture movie magic. But before that, let’s talk about casting…

After the crowdfund ended we had a myriad of things to plan. But finding our cast was the most important one. We knew going in that we wanted amazing actors to be involved. We had Nathan. Nathan’s incredible, but we needed more. Enter Heather Basten. A casting agent extraordinaire. Now outside of adverts this was new territory for me. We’d planned in our budget to use a casting agent as a way to make our movie even better. It can be really difficult to get talented people to come onboard a short film. The hours are long, the pay is low and I’m not Spielberg… yet.

So what exactly does a casting agent do? Well, they read the script and come up with ideas for the roles, they find you talented people, make the connections with their agents and try to convince them to work for equity minimum on a shoot in deepest darkest South East London, half filmed at night with the prospect of rain. But boy did Heather deliver. We were lucky enough to cast Brian Bovell (The Missing, The Bill, Gimme Gimme, Gimme) Holli Dempsey (Black Mirror, Harlots, The Aliens, Derek) Laura Jane-Hudson (Derek, Johnny English Strikes Back, Four Weddings and a Funeral), Hilary Tones (Bliss! Eastenders, Doctors) all combined with a spectacular cameo from my Dad, Bob, we were in for  some incredible acting.

The Ecstasy Cast 2.jpg



The wheels were firmly set in motion and 3+ months of planning rested upon two fateful days where everything had to go right. So inevitably the day started with a lie in. Not cause we’re lazy but because we were going to be filming until 1am. After a morning of positive vibes and packing up kit, snacks and importantly my Dad we rolled forth to the setting of Day 1. A car park in Thamesmead for the all important drug deal scene. And this is where everything that was out of our control that could go wrong… started to go wrong.

A burst tyre on our lighting van way over in west London set off a chain of events that I’ve never faced filming. Our producer Emily was in the van with our runner Alex and they’d rolled up to Panavision, one of the UK’s leading kit hire companies who were giving us a 90% discount on lights. Emily and Alex’s smiley faces were met by some very concerned looks by the staff there. THE TYRE! With no experience changing tyres on a Luton box van the lovely team there helped us out but it took a lot longer than expected, this combined with disastrous traffic led to a 4 hour delay in the van’s arrival on location. Don’t ask me how, but it happened and it was stressful.

Meanwhile at the car park, the community centre that had agreed to let us use a space from 2pm - 12pm decided to change their minds last minute and only allow us in from 6pm - 11pm. This was a problem because we’d planned on using their electricity. So we had to hire an emergency generator to power our lights. With Emily and Alex’s ETA now 4.30pm we made the most of what we could whilst keeping an eye on some very grey clouds looming in the distance. Our contingency was to film some scenes at sunset, but the traffic was truly horrendous and our actors 1 hour journeys doubled meaning that they arrived as the sun was going down.

Finally, the lighting van arrived but the sun had set and as you can imagine setting up a car park filled with lights in the dark takes double as long as it does in daylight. I have never faced these kinds of issues before so externally I was trying to show that this was all character building but internally I was dying.

Okay so finally we got everything up and running. A healthy 4 hours later than planned but we had to push things forward. And that’s when the rain started. I’m not talking a gentle drizzle, I’m talking BIBLICAL Noah’s Arc styled rain. We had hired big movable tents called ‘Easy ups’ to cover equipment and the team but the rain was so powerful and so loud that there were points where we simply couldn’t record because of the sound. Anyway we powered through our key drug deal scene, which in spite of the conditions was amazing. The acting was incredible.

At this point it was dinner time. We’d been given the keys to the centre and all the crew tucked into a lovely hot meal that kept spirits high. Food = morale. Me and the core team assembled for a crisis discussion. It was obvious that at this point with 4-5hours to go that we were not going to film all of the movie. It was a heart breaking decision to come to but it was the truth. So we came up with a battle plan to try and film all the actors out of the movie except Nathan, and we’d come back with Nathan at a later date to fill in the gaps.

So, we ploughed on, through awful rain and having to re-wire our lights at 11pm when they kicked us out of the centre. My feet were so drenched that I had to change my socks for carrier bags just to keep them dry! We finished filming at 1am and left the car park at 3am. When I got home I had a very early hours conversation with my wife and I was sad. Everything we captured was beautiful and the acting was incredible but we simply run out of time. Sigh.

Ecstasy Movie Stills2.jpg



Day 2 conversely was one of the best days of filming that I’ve ever had in my entire life. Legally you have to give 11 hours between the end of the day and the start of the next day so we started at 2pm (Losing 2 hours). But my day had started to Nina Simon’s - ‘Feeling good’ so I knew we were onto a winner from the start.

We kicked off things outside a community hall in Mottingham. Filming the movie’s opening scene, where our characters Kristian and Ian drop off Mum and wife, Rachel to a dance class. It was a lovely scene and a joy to see Hilary, Nathan and Brian all inhabiting the characters I’d lovingly created over the previous 6 months. Once we wrapped there the guy who was closing up the church hall casually dropped into the conversation that he was the steadicam operator on the Shining! A 22month shoot filled with gruelling days. It sort of made our 2 day short film feel like a breeze!

IMG_8013 copy.jpg



Buoyed by this we moved the team to my parents' house for the final bits of filming. A big party scene! How I’d convinced my poor parents to let us film at their’s beyond me because the house was rammed. Equipment vans all around and inside was full of our lighting team and art director, assistants and runners dressing the set whilst party extras filled the kitchen, bedrooms, hallway and bathroom waiting for us to be ready. This was an extra special moment because we had a number of people living with Parkinson’s disease as part of the scene and it was a joy to see them witnessing the madness and having what seemed like a great time! I don’t want to give too much away but we had some beautiful moments with an all important steadicam sequence and a spectacular cameo from my Dad, Bob. There was a moment before a certain sequence that I had to give a big speech to explain to everyone what was about to happen and I’m not going to lie, I broke down into floods of tears, it was a very emotional moment and one that I’ll never forget. We finished at 2am and I found a case of beers in the garage which I shared amongst the crew. If my parents are reading this, I owe you a 20 pack of Stellas!

_MG_2841-Recovered.jpg



So, what’s happened since? Well, after returning all the kit, cleaning my parents' house and paying everyone's invoices we all had to go back to work to earn money! I’d put work on hold for a quite a few months to make this film and so we put our heads down whilst our editor assembled the first draft of our movie. A month later Emily and I sat with him to watch the film for the first time with the lights turned off for true cinematic effect and we held our breathes…

There were laughs, tears and a fair bit of dancing in our seats, the movie is going to be very very special. BUT what we know and what we knew all along from day 1 is that it wouldn’t be complete. Looking at it, it’s 70% complete and we need to film for 1 more day. And that’s why we need to raise money again to film in the car park. At 2pm today we launch a new crowdfund to cover the costs of re-shooting at the car park and we’d love it if all of you could share it far and wide so we can complete the movie and make it happen! https://greenlit.fund/project/ecstasy

We have to film it this month on March 25th because of a number of extreme factors. Firstly, the car park location is getting DEMOLISHED. It was an email out of the blue, but the Peabody estate has told us the car park is going very very soon! I cannot describe the continuity problems we will face if we can’t film there. Secondly if we’re to get Brian back for this shoot, which would be ideal, we need to get him before his beautiful beard is shaved off for other roles. And lastly, it has always been our ambition to do a screening on April 11th which is World Parkinson’s Day.

You have helped us so much so far and believe me when I tell you that this isn’t the position, we’d planned to be in. But we are here and we’re going to do everything we can to make it happen and if you can help us along the way we’ll be eternally grateful! From the start we've wanted to tell a story about Parkinson's disease and dancing that's very different and ask the question, if you were disabled what lengths would you go to, to dance with a loved one, one last time. Thank you! Peace and love, Grant and the whole team!

Hello everyone! We know we've been super quiet but rather excitingly  we wanted to drop a line to say that we've been extremley busy filming our short film 'Ecstasy' over the course of a MANIC two day shoot. There was laughter, tears and the use of carrier bags to keep feet dry in near biblical filming conditions... Honestly so much rain. There are many tales from the shoot and we'll be revealing all in the coming weeks. Right now our hearts are warm and fuzzy from getting the opportunity to tell our heartfelt story with such a talented cast and crew, we also had the honour of having a number of people living with Parkinson's disease there on our shoot, taking part, having a laugh and seeing what it takes to make movie magic.

Ecstasy Clapper Still.jpg



The dust has settled for now but we’re not quite finished yet, there’s still a lot of work to do and maybe even a bit more shooting but we will keep you updated in the weeks to come. We couldn't have done it without you. X

We're 114% funded with 3 days left AND we've had 209 amazing backers support us so far. We're excited to have each and everyone of you along for the ride. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Over the next 72 hours we're trying to reach our £10k target which equates to 120% but I'm not going to lie last night I had a dream that we hit 200% and broke even more records. I cried, it was magnificent. But either way we're making a movie and this leads me on to some exciting developments...

We're excited to announce that Heather Basten, casting director extraordinaire is joining team 'Ecstasy'. And this is fantastic news. We have big ambitions for the film and in a dream world we'll fill all the roles we have with the most talented people we can get. Heather is a key part of this process and her track record speaks for itself...

Heather Basten began in the industry at the British Film Institute. She then moved into casting for Film and TV. She's cast for notable directors such as Rob Savage, Ana Rocha De Sousa and Charlotte Regan.
Past productions include Fox TV, Delaval Films, Sky Arts and DMC Films, as well as having films screened at Sundance and the BFI London Film Festival.
Her work spans from working alongside Jeremy Zimmermann (Hellboy), and went to be casting assistant on NBC’s ‘A.D’. She moved on as casting assistant to Dixie Chassay (The Favourite), and then resided with Des Hamilton (Top Boy, This Is England) where she assisted Lara Manwaring on BAFTA-winning TV Feature ‘Ellen’, as well as part of the NYC street casting team for 'White Boy Rick'.    Past casting associate works include Netflix’s ‘The End of the F***king world’ and THE LIGHTHOUSE starring Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe.    Current films due for release in the near future include interactive feature film, 'The Complex' starring Kate Dickie and Michelle Mylett, and upcoming Portuguese/London co-produced feature film 'Listen' starring Lucia Moniz. 

Not a bad list of credentials. It's because of the momentum we've generated with our campaign and YOU that we have been able to get such talented people involved in our film. Since the crowdfund has started we've had huge actors support us online and my inbox has been littered with heartfelt pleas to work with us. I've had a special effects whizz from the Marvel films, sound recordists, theatre producers and so many more talents show interest. Our journey is only just beginning. If you are able to, please share our project with your friends and family. Personal pleas for help do work and the more we raise the better we can make our film and the more we can donate to Parkinson's research. You can copy and paste the below if need be. Thanks! Grant and team

Hey, 

You may or may not be aware but recently I've been part of a crowdfunding campaign for an upcoming short film called Ecstasy, which will tell a story about living with Parkinson’s disease in a positive and upbeat light.

Ecstasy is a comedy about a disabled father and his son's quest to buy drugs so the Dad can dance with his wife at her birthday party. What could possibly go wrong? And it's based upon the real life revelation that ecstasy can temporarily cure people living with Parkinson’s

The writer and director Grant is making this movie as his father, Bob has had Parkinson's disease for over 20 years and he has put a whole crowdfunding campaign together to raise money for the budget, AND a percentage of that will go to charity. https://greenlit.fund/project/ecstasy

Now for the amazing bit... We've just found out that all the money that will be donated will get doubled as a result of the BIG GIVE campaign but TIME IS RUNNING OUT. He's raised over £9.5k so far with £635 of that for charity, and that will get doubled to £1270. But we're trying to raise as much as possible and we have 3 DAYS LEFT.

The whole project is amazing, he’s got some very talented people on board; actors from the ITV show Benidorm and the music supervisors of Kevin and Perry go large! According to Grant the film will make you laugh, cry and rave in your seat! So if you want to see an amazing film next year and support Parkinson's disease research all at once then you can here: https://greenlit.fund/project/ecstasy

Ho ho ho! December is here and so is the final 6 days of our campaign. Thank you everyone for your unbelievable support so far. We've raised over £9200 via 196 FANTASTIC backers and have had unbelievable conversations with all of our supporters.  Your support has been extremley humbling and my Dad, Bob has shed a tear or two along the way. We can't wait to make our movie next year!

This week we enter the FINAL  part of our campaign and we're trying to raise as much awareness about Parkinson's disease and our movie as possible. Our target is to reach £10k with 50% of everything over this figure going directly to Parkinson's research. So far we've raised close to £1k for Parkinson's research as part of our rewards which is unbelievable and we cannot thank you enough.

This is the final push and anything you can do to share our story and convince a friend, family member or pet to pledge a fiver (or more) please do, because we want to make the most amazing movie possible. If you have any ideas for us, people to get in touch with or graphical things we can make let us know, the world is our oyster and we can definitely put off our actual day jobs for one more week to get us the added flexibility we need to make our movie.

Next year we'll be making a movie that will make you laugh, cry and dance in your seat. Strap in for the ride of your lives. X

After a whirlwind 12 days we've reached our target, broken records and had the pleasure of hearing from our backers about how passionate you all are for this film. We've had support from friends, family, the Parkinson's disease community and everyone else in between. Words can't describe how truly grateful we are so thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Now that we've reached our target we can officially make our movie! We've been blown away by your kindness, especially as this project is so close to our hearts. From the start we've set out to create a story about my Dad, who's lived with Parkinson's disease for the last 20 years. We want to tell a story about disability and care that's different and raise a whole lot of awareness for Parkinson's disease along the way. But's what's next with our campaign I hear you ask? Well...

With time left on our campaign we're going to up our target to £10,000 so we can make an even better movie! We really didn't expect this level of support and we knew going in that £8,500 was the minimum needed to make our film, but raising an extra £1,500 will go a long way and give us the flexibility to do so much more.

So, if you still want to be part of our story you can and if you've already backed us (legends) and you're up for it, please help us spread and share the word even further. If by some miracle we get above this target, we're going to increase the percentage of donation so that a WHOPPING 50% of all money raised over the £10k mark will go to Parkinson's research. So this is your chance to support a movie and research into a cure all at once. We have the opportunity to do so much more for Parkinson's disease awareness and if we can do that, we're going to try! 

Thank you and much love from Grant and the whole Ecstasy team.
