Support the project…

Why should you help me?

1. Any money raised from my crowdfunding will go towards supporting the creation of my student short film which will be designed to help raise awareness for Lake District conservation and to share the story of the real Beatrix Potter, including her heroic efforts on behalf of nature and local Lake District communities

2. The social media campaign running alongside the film will also seek to raise support for women in science and other academic fields, plus spread a real feeling of positivity and support for others who are trying to achieve their dreams

3. I would like to visually represent the natural beauty of the Lake District on-screen to remind people how important it is to support conservation of the area, even today

4. Last year marked the 150th anniversary of Beatrix Potter’s birthday – as a contribution towards this milestone and whilst the subject is still gaining attention, I feel it is the perfect time to create a film on the subject

5. I would also like to spread the word about Beatrix’s accomplishments outside of her storytelling and inspire other young girls to follow in the pursuit of their dreams, just as Beatrix Potter inspired me to do when I read about her as a child

Where will the money go?

Drone Footage – Cost: £100+

As part of my film, I will be working with an excellent local Lake District drone company called Skylark Aerial Photography. Getting drone shots will enable me to share a greater variety of beautiful landscape shots and will help me to better tell the story of Beatrix and the landscapes that she loved.

Accommodation- Cost: £600+

Finding somewhere to stay in the Lake District can be quite pricey, especially in the Spring/Summer – my aim is to try and raise enough so that I can afford to source accommodation for myself and my small student crew. If possible, I would like to raise enough to afford to rent a small property from a local family, so that the money will go straight back into the local community of the Lake District area in which we will be staying.

Transport – Cost: £200+

The Lake District is a very hilly area in the North, several hours from Bristol, meaning I will need to raise enough to be able travel up to and around the area. The more money I am able to raise, the greater variety of Lake District landscapes I will be able to feature in my film.

Costumes and props- Cost: £200+

For my story, I will need to purchase a small variety of authentic costumes and props. The more money I am able to raise, the more accurate and authentic to the time period these will be. Where possible, I would like to buy these from charity shops so that again, the money raised can be put to good use.

Social media:

If my project takes off and I am able to raise a lot more than my target, I would like to invest any remaining funds into my social media campaign. This will help to spread the message of positivity and will enable me to reach wider audiences with my #BEAyourself campaign.

Something for you too…

I am incredibly grateful for anything at all that you might be willing to give towards supporting my project. In addition to my immense gratitude, it is my pleasure to also be able to offer a selection of carefully created rewards for donations of £5 or more, which will be posted to you personally with a little handwritten note to thank you for your contribution!

More information about rewards is listed on my crowdfunding page.

Have you ‘herd’?

My aim is to get as many people talking about my project as possible so even if you can’t afford to donate anything, please help me by spreading the word!

Please share this project with anyone who you think might be interested in supporting me, whether on social media, via email/phone or even through a chat over the fence.

I’d love to get my project out to as many people as possible as this will give me an increased chance of not only creating a better film and spreading the word about Beatrix’s accomplishments, but also a greater opportunity to encourage others to take part in my #BEAyourself campaign which seeks to promote self-esteem, support for others and appreciation for women in academia, off the back of Beatrix’s incredible conservation work.

Thank you so much and please do sponsor me if you are able to.
