Independent Sheffield film-maker Theo Cane Garvey.

Theo Cane Garvey has been working with a team of fellow film-lovers, called the Sheffspendables, to create and shoot the film called Unit Eleven.

The film is set in the year 2035 and follows survivors of a now almost completely evacuated post-apocalyptic Britain.

They must compete for a government bounty to retrieve a mysterious bio weapon known only as Unit Eleven.

The team created the film with no budget, but now they are asking for help to give it the showing they feel it deserves.

Theo, who is a self-taught film-maker from Birley, said: “The film is now in its final post production stages, as myself and the gang work around the clock to perfect the edits, the sound mix, the after effects and originally composed soundtrack.

“Every prop, set, costume and even in some cases the vehicles, were all completely self built by myself and the rest of the Sheffspendables team. The movie is set to be something truly outstanding, but now we need a little bit of help.”

The money will be used to get the film professionally grade, to pay submission fees to have the film screened at festivals and also hire out a theatre to show the film at an official premier.

The two hour feature film is set for release this summer, but an exact date is not yet known. For more information, to view the trailer for the film and to donate, visit
