A new Brixton film tackling gang culture from a female perspective launches its Crowdfunding campaign

A new Brixton film tackling gang culture from a female perspective launches its Crowdfunding campaign

A new film set in Brixton and tackling gang culture from a female perspective has kicked off its Crowdfunding campaign with nearly £10,000 raised after just three days.

Set in Brixton and inspired by true events, Honeytrap is an urban drama told from a girl’s point of view. It will explore the pressures on girls who find themselves involved in gang culture, and will use an amalgamation of real-life stories with very serious consequences. Filming will begin in August.

Writer and director Rebecca Johnson (who was named one of Screen International’s ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ in 2009) has been making films looking at aspects of life in Brixton for the last ten years through her company Fierce Productions.

The music will be scored by Skwilla (Top Girl), MC Killa P (former member of Roll Deep) and Russo (video for ‘I Know’ below) who all hail from Brixton.
Fierce Productions runs a unique training and mentoring programme during each of its projects, enabling young people to work alongside professional film crew, with trainees going on to secure paid employment in the film industry, roles in BBC dramas and to make their own films.

They have been awarded a £20,000 grant towards the training and mentoring programme from South London trust the Walcot Foundation, ensuring young people from Brixton have the opportunity to get involved.
