So after an exhaustive and nearly 4 months of trying to get funding from C4 I got this short and curt message back this morning.

Thank you for submitting your proposal to the BRITDOC Channel 4 Fund.

With a limited funding pot and a high number of proposals, I am afraid this is not going to be a priority project for us. Please be assured that your project was fully considered.

Unfortunately due to being a very small team we are unable to give more detailed feedback on projects. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.

Best of luck with your film. For some alternate funding opportunities do take a look at britdoc.org/resources and consider applying for funding with BRITDOC on future projects.

Kind regards,

Luke Moody
Grants Officer

Thanks for the that incisive reply Luke.

Maybe you would like to do something that would be in a more positive light and sponsor me for Crisis at Christmas?

I’m raising money for Crisis the homeless charity by taking part in Sponsor a Volunteer 2013 and working in one of the outreach centres over the festive season,
Please help some of the UK’s most vulnerable people at Christmas this year.at www.virginmoneygiving.com/JohnnyLynch

  1. pft My arse not enough funding, they found enough money for the muslim festival ramadan, but not 1 penny for our ex service personel who are homeless. i am ex services and i have been in this situation… no one really cares… youve got to man up and kick ass to get out of these situations, and its not easy, it took me years.
