On April 15th, 2013 at 2:49PM exactly, two pressure cooker bombs exploded, ripping through a crowd of spectators at the Boston Marathon; this is their story.
A Boston Tale tells the story of the bombings from eye-witnesses, victims and the people directly affected by this terrible tragedy. We are aiming to line up a series of interviews from a number of people involved and create a powerful, emotional and memorable account of a day which changed the lives of many forever.
We feel it's important to give the survivors a chance to tell their story without any interference from the mainstream media and after having been in touch with a few, this was the best idea we came up with.
With over 280 people seriously injured and 3 tragic deaths, the Boston Marathon bombings have left deep scars in the community but the spirit of Boston is like no other. With the documentary, we'll examine the community spirit and find out just how they coped during this dark period in Boston's history.
With 3D mapping technology, using the funding we hope to raise through kickstarter, we'll be able to recreate a frame-to-frame accurate representation of the explosions and aftermath. The whole of Boylston street will be mapped and the audience will be able to see the carnage and devastation created by the explosions. This will only be possible with the £30,000 we hope to raise.
The film is being made by a British production crew who made a similar film for the 7/7 attacks n London. Their official kickstarter campaign launched 2 days ago and can be found here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/181204236...
