Gay rugby feature film In From the Side has a week left of its Kickstarter campaign and it needs your help.
Directed by Matt Carter who co-wrote the film with Adam Silver, who also produces, In From the Side is hoping to raise £10,000 to help make and complete the film.
In From the Side is the story of an adulterous affair between two members of a fictional gay rugby club. The film explores the multiple types of connections that can occur within a large group of gay men in a seemingly hyper-masculine and aggressive team sports environment, illuminating the very real emotional tensions and pressures this can create.
The story centres on Mark, a relatively new and inexperienced club member in a dysfunctional relationship with his disinterested partner, and his adulterous romantic involvement with the more seasoned Rugby player, Warren. Warren, however, is also a taken man, having a long-standing but strained relationship with his partner and fellow teammate John. Following a drunken encounter, Mark and Warren unwittingly embark on a 6-month affair that they struggle to keep concealed from their partners and teammates.
As this dangerous game begins to unravel, their uncovered infidelity has far-reaching consequences, creating deep divisions and fractures within the club. Team spirit, loyalties, camaraderie and the support the players have for one-another both on and off the pitch are tested against the darker and more competitive undertones, backstabbing and betrayal rife in this environment.
Every person who gets involved in the campaign can pick from a variety of perks ranging from a copy of the film on DVD through to being a producer.
