So what is it all about?
Before the days of Indiegogo and Kickstarter, we set about to raise funds and awareness for our feature film ‘Killing Clovis Dardentor’ by selling its end credits to the public – the first project of its kind. Whilst still at school, we earned the support of some of the world’s best loved stars and enjoyed extensive international press coverage. From having coffee with Jude Law in New York to making our very first short film with Stephen Fry and Frank Skinner – we had the time of our lives. But it is not over yet. Our ultimate goal is to make and release “Killing Clovis Dardentor”, an adaptation of a forgotten Jules Verne novel, left unpublished for over a century.

The idea behind their website, buyacredit.com, was so simple that only someone unfamiliar with—and thus unintimidated by—the intricate mechanics of the film industry could have concocted it.” – Vanity Fair
