About Our Project
This is the website of “A British Story” book and film project aimed to raise money, from the release of the book and hopefully a film, for British children’s charities.
The concept of this project is to recruit volunteers to submit a short written story about a day in their life. These stories will be posted on our site so that users can vote which will be included in the book.
After the closing dated of 31st October 2017 our community will be given the chance to vote for their favorite 25 stories, which will be shortlisted for our panel to choose the final section for our book “A British Story”
After, what we hope to be a successful book released, our aim is to recruit screen play writers, proof readers, story writers, and publishing agents/experts who will work on turning the book in to a movie.
The plot of each of the short stories will differs but one constant remains: this is about ONE DAY IN THE LIFE OF A BRITISH PERSON.
The resulting movie will be called ‘A British Story’ and will consist of a series of stories from the book stories about one day in the life of an ordinary British person.
The short stories in the film will be about different people, rich or poor from around Great Britain. If produced, the writers whose scenes make it to the final selection will be invited to the premiere of the film and be guaranteed a screen credit.
The Voting Process
The concept of this project is to recruit volunteers to write a story about a day in their life.
After the closing date of 1st October 2017 a summary of the best short stories will be available on our website for you to vote for your favorites. The 25 with the most votes will be put forward for inclusion in the published book – A British Story.Read more
