Coventry City of Culture 2021
This exciting and inspirational film will be made by a multi-award-winning Coventry production company, Chugg Productions Ltd, with the support of Coventry City Council’s 2021 team.
Quite simply the aim is to tell a gripping, original Coventry story to the world in a very special year. It is a family friendly film which will leave viewers wanting to know more about the city, it’s history and the amazing people who live here.
There are four stages in this film project:
1) The Development
2) The Production (often referred to as the shoot)
3) Post production
We are raising money for stage 2 of the process “The Production”
We are planning to begin filming in October 2019 and will continue to film through July of 2020. It means we need to raise an initial shooting budget of £180,000 before June 2019. The remaining budget will be raised while filming commences.
As a Coventry company, we would like to offer you the opportunity to become a part of this once in a lifetime event.
The following sponsorship opportunities are available. But please note if you are willing to finance the full initial budget amount of £180,000 we would be happy to work with you to tailor a package to suit your needs.
