Producers of a film shot in Matlock's Magpie shop on Dale Road are asking people to contribute towards the post production costs involved in finishing the fantasy-drama.
The producers of Stop/Eject are asking the public to donate towards the £1,500 cost of bringing the film to the silver screen.
Magpie is one of the Derbyshire locations used in Stop/Eject which is described as "magical and moving" where, following the death of her husband, a young woman discovers a tape recorder which can stop and rewind time.
The film stars Georgina Sherrington who has previously appeared in The Worst Witch, and is directed by Neil Oseman. Filming was completed in 2012 and the producers are now asking people to dontate towards the £1,500 post-production costs of recording the music, designing and mixing the sound, colour-grading the images and producing a digital cinema package so that Stop/Eject can be shown in any modern cinema. Donations will also help to fund entry fees to international film festivals.
Donors will receive a variety of rewards in return, ranging from tickets to the film premiere and memorabilia and props used in the film through to one-on-one filmmaking advice or a voice role in the actual film.
