British Sci-fi Thriller ‘Dreck’ Launches Kickstarter Campaign

DreckThe upcoming British Sci-fi thriller Dreck after completing principle photography has now turned to Kickstarter to raise money to help in the post production and marketing of the film.

In 2022, all classes of drugs have been legalised. Drecks are an elite unit created by an over-stretched police force to keep the black market dealers off the streets and the licensed drug companies rich.

When Dreck and former addict Frank Grieves is called to investigate an unidentifiable corpse, he makes a connection to the biggest and most powerful drug company of them all: Ambro.  But Ambro have friends in high places and as his corrupt superiors turn on him, Grieves finds himself cut loose by the law and separated from the people he loves.

The only way to clear his name is to find the identity of the dead body and its connection to Ambro.  But not even Grieves can predict what the future has in store.

I’ve been following the production of Dreck for a while now but until now however I hadn’t seen any footage from the film just a lot of screenshots. Although there isn’t a great deal of footage I do like what I’m seeing so far and that I really hope the team are able to raise the money they need to finish the project. The fact that the film’s star Elliot Cowan is currently also co-starring in the new TV show Da Vinci Demons (hmm still need to watch that) may help to get the project some more exposure. Personally I think the premise behind the film is a good with some great talent involved (about time I saw James ‘Baltar’ Callis on another sci-fi project) and hell it’s always good to see some Brit sci-fi.

You can find out more about the project and see some footage from the film over on Kickstarter. You can also check out our interview with Justin Trefgarne, the writer/director of Dreck here.
