A 15-min short film THE INVISIBLE EDGE will launch a website that will use creative arts to engage young men about mental health and connect them to resources.
The Invisible Edge will be the first short film in a trilogy – a psychological drama about two brothers in rural Australia who struggle with jealousy, rivalry and love in their relationship, in order to find the unspoken words that may keep one of them alive.
This flagship trilogy of short films and the website have been developed to bridge the gap between young people in rural communities experiencing mental health issues and the resources and people that may be able to help them.
The concept is based on the power of the creative arts to engage, inspire, express, unite, empower and educate. In this context, web delivery heightens this power by providing anonymity, facilitating wide distribution, and creating an interactive experience that can link users to resources.
The Invisible Edge has been developed and shot through the in-kind contribution of a dedicated crew who recognise the potential of the project to save lives.
The funds we are seeking to raise through our ACF campaign will allow us to complete post-production and provide seed-funds to expand our prototype website.
