Funding Intro

Crude is a crowd-funded film. Deliberately so, because we want to remain utterly independent. So we can make the film we wanna make and also control the distribution. Plus, if the film makes a shedload of cash, we want it to go to the people who made it, the people who funded it and the people who starred in it. Not the middle men.

Before which: See the Timeline for the complete five year history or the Film Diaries for the latest blog entries.



This enormously ambitious drama-documentary-animation hybrid stars Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite as an old man living in the devastated world of 2055, watching "archive" footage from 2007 and asking: why didn't we stop climate change while we had the chance? 
This wee flow diagram should give you the general idea of what The Age of Stupid is all about.... don't panic, it'll all make perfect sense on the big screen...
