When The Rain Sets in is an ambitious love story about the pressures of love in today’s world.
James Hughes, the writer/producer/director of When The Rain sets in, has spent the last three years of his life chasing his dream of making his short film.
When The Rain Sets in tells the story of Kenzie and Treyden, a couple in their mid-20s who’ve been swept up in a whirlwind six-month romance. They find themselves confronting a painful question: has their love story come to an end? This poignant, emotional drama explores how in today’s world, the pressures on a relationship, and the obstacles to staying together, have never been greater. The love story of Kenzie and Treyden is their own, but it also reflects the immense societal challenges that we all face in our intimate lives.
The film’s pitch package gained much interest, so much so that it won a competition at BAFTA out of 300 submissions. This resulted in sponsorship by leading organisations, such as Tate, who loved the project and helped it get off the ground. Consequently Hughes was able to shoot a 4 day version of the multiple award-winning script earlier in April.
Having since secured the permit to shoot the final scene featured in the script, he needs funding for to complete the 5th and final day of the shoot – filming a scene that is pivotal to the whole story.
