Would You Like to See Your Letter in a Film?

Have you ever received mail for someone you don't know?We are making a short dark comedy film inspired by the wrong mail.
Eduardo Munez tells the story of a man on the edge.... And a LOT of letters!


The original crowdfunding campaign was funded by 104% on December 6, 2015 (But you can still contribute!). 

Along with the funds we need to collect lots of amazing letters from around the world for use in the film as props. What we don't want is for all the mail in our film to be boring junk mail! We are looking for mail artists and snail mail lovers to get involved in our project by sending us letters which we can feature in our film! We need a LOT of them!

We are looking for letters, particularly drawn envelopes, mail art and plain envelopes - not postcards. Most importantly the letters must be addressed to Mr Eduardo Munez.
We will have to change the real addresses on the front to the 'fake' address of the character in the film so please leave the address section fairly clear of decoration.

In our film the letters to Mr Eduardo Munez do not get opened - so inside you can write whatever you like. You can use your imagination - who do you think Eduardo Munez is? What kind of mail would he receive?

Once shooting on the film is completed we will video the team opening all the letters we have received and having a look at their mysterious contents...! We'll provide everyone who contributes with a password protected video link to watch them all being opened. All letter writers will also receive special thanks in the credits too...

With each letter writer's permission - we will also publish them on our Facebook page and the blog of the project.

The address to send your mysterious mail to is:

Mr Eduardo Munez
272 Waterloo Street,
Newcastle upon Tyne,
NE1 4DJ
UNITED KINGDOM

Deadline: 1 March, 2016 30 April, 2016
Please, be sure to write your sender details on the back of the envelope as the letters will not be opened until after the film is completed!

    1. I don't know for you, but my letter will be a better actress than me, probably! ;-)
