“No Reasons” is an upcoming thriller from the duo that created last year’s zero budget film “Death Walks”. Spencer Hawken and Lucinda Rhodes have kicked off a crowd funding campaign to boost special effects and production expense funds with 90% of the budget already met before hand. “No Reasons” is the story of a missing girl and the family left behind. Over the course of 18 months the story follows Paul (Marc Bannerman) and Sally (Lucinda Rhodes) Bryant, as they struggle to come to terms with her disappearance. The campaign is set up on Kickstarter.
According to the press release: “What makes No Reasons so unique is it's story, it covers a number of touchy and taboo areas not yet covered by British cinema. Compared already by industry players as a combination of Kitchen Sink drama meets A Serbian Film and The Human Centipede, and compared in controversial ranking by industry head Steven Woolley as on a par to Ken Russell's The Devils. It is also with a budget of just £25,000 one if the lowest budget British movies ever to be made with such an enormous cast of familiar faces. Director/writer/producer Spencer Hawken promises there has never been a British movie quite like this, and that is why so many known performers lowered their fee to be part of the action.”
“No Reasons” also stars Jon Guerriero, Daniel Smales, and Scott Mullins. The film is described as stark, disturbing drama in the vein of a classic “whodunnit” with clues, mysteries, revelations, and a shocking secret. “No Reasons” was shot in Havering and Brentwood, Essex with hundreds of people volunteering for roles, and to help put the film together. Big locations such as Romford's The Brickyard gave their venue to the films producers for use in the film. Other locations included Big Cars, The Havering Well, Brentwood Police Station, and dozens of private residences.
