Shooting is set to finish this weekend on a hotly anticipated new crime thriller being filmed in Hounslow for a budget of just over £4,000.
Hound is a feature-length film about a man who turns vigilante, donning a dog mask as he metes out justice to the gang which butchered his beloved pet before his eyes.
Director Simba Masaku and Jimm Stark, who plays the lead role, raised £4,114 to fund the project via the crowd-funding site KickStarter.
They have been recording since the beginning of the year and are set to call it a wrap on Sunday (March 22), before going into post-production.
The team aim to complete editing the film by the end of April and are keen to hold the premiere at Watermans arts centre, in Brentford, soon after.
Mr Masaku, who met Jimm while working in costume at one of Thorpe Park's Fright Nights, said he had been hugely impressed by the talent of the local cast, many of whom had never acted before.
But he said he had been frustrated by rules and regulation, which he said made it hard to shoot certain scenes on such a low budget.
"It's the film we wanted to make and more, and we're so grateful to everyone who's helped make it happen," he told getwestlondon. "We had to cancel some shots because of the regulations regarding using imitation guns in public but in many ways that's made the film stronger.
"It's still an action film but it's become more of a character piece and more realistic as a result of some of the limitations we faced."
