London, UK – Anthony Vander recently launched an Indiegogo campaign for The Tutor, a character driven feature film based around education, loneliness, and adversity.
“I’ve worked in education as well as the film industry for over four years now and it’s fair to say that this film is one that’s extremely close to my heart,” Vander explains, “I prefer to think that this is an investment in the message of the film. I intend to donate half of the Producers profits (after expenses) from the release film to an educational charity.”
The Tutor tells the story of ballet dancer and former teaching assistant Alex, a twenty nine year old Londoner disillusioned by rejection of dance roles which she feels capable of doing justice to. As she dances her way from one audition to the next and daydreams in the park she finds herself and her dancing subject to a voyeur in the form of a five year old boy named Junior.
When Alex tries to return Junior to his parents she is approached by Junior’s father Dan, a working class single parent. Dan remembers Alex from her teaching assistant days and asks her to be a home tutor for Junior for a week. Alex initially declines but later decides to take the home tutoring position. During the sessions Junior’s aggressive outbursts and reluctance to listen present Alex with extreme challenges.
“Since its inception Distortion Entertainment has been present at over six major film festivals including Cannes, Venice, Berlin to name a few,” says the team, “We believe in producing risk taking independent films and to be bold and fearless in our productions. We also believe in working and showcasing up and coming diverse talent.”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including their name in the credits for £10, a digital download of the movie with a signed poster and five postcards for £50, and much more. Backers can also pledge to receive two tickets to the World Premier of The Tutor or even score an acting role in the film!
