Help fund Bucky!

Here are the details of how you can get involved. You can donate to the project in a variety of ways.

  • For £10 you will receive a signed photo via email together with a thank you note. In the email there will be a code word so that if you see Danny in the street and say the word he will know you have donated, thank you personally and pose for photos.
  • For £30 you will receive as above plus you get a credit in titles of the short film.

  • For £500 you will receive as above plus an Associate Producer credit.
