About Us

We’re Dan, Seb and Todd, three brothers who are filmmakers, just like yourselves.


From short films to features, live action to animation, we’ve worked on a variety of projects that range from major studios to our own original passion pieces. We’re crazy about films and just as importantly, emerging filmmakers.

We know how hard it is to be successful in this industry, whether you’re just starting out or looking to add to your portfolio, which is why it’s so important to encourage community and help each other out. Funding is vital for creating a film but it can be near impossible to achieve alone... so we're here to help.

No more time consuming application forms or stress of running a crowdfunding campaign, no more missed deadlines and no more competing against 1000's of scripts! 

Our three tiers of competitions have a maximum number of entries, giving you a choice of how many scripts you'd like to go up against. Our structure ensures that we can help fund more projects throughout the year, giving filmmakers greater control and fairer opportunities. As soon as the maximum number of entries for one tier is reached, a new one immediately opens so that nobody misses out and we can generate continuous chances for filmmakers to win funding.

We believe that the best stories deserve to be told properly. Funderstruck is here to bring those stories to life by helping more filmmakers get the funding they need and deserve.
