About the project
LOCKLINEViola does not know where she is. Things look familiar, but she struggles to get a grip. Then she arrives at the place where she just died.

About I AM

Our film is about a young woman who dies in a traffic accident, but does not realize  immediately that she is dead. We tell the story from her perspective, exploring what it's like to say goodbye when you suddenly die. Saying goodbye from another dimension, in a parallel world.

The idea for this film originated from the time my father suddenly died of a brain hemorrhage. I could not believe that this was the end. That he would not see my daughter grow up and would not know how it would fare me and my family. Life could not be so cruel. In me the thought grew that he was able to catch a glance of my future and see in advance the highlights of my life. Maybe the dead (in some other dimension) are allowed to look into the future of those they love, before they move on to their next destination?

We are going to tell this story in the form of a film poem. Just like  in poems the story comes from observations, emotions, snippets of text and images. Death is a great mystery that we know little about. This story of dying is told from a perspective of what is felt and what is  unknown. The form of poetry is well suited for our story.


Why does our project deserve your support?

With this movie I'm looking for the great unknown, which we all have to face sooner or later. Without answers to questions, for which there is no answer, we offer you an image  that even those who die suddenly, will be given the time to say goodbye.

Film poems are not likely to be made in the mainstream  film industry. The industry is pretty unambiguous. Crowdfunding is a way to get films like these made. With your help we can reach our target of 10,000 euros and  gain the trust of funding organisations  so we can get the full budget required.

I estimate the full budget at 30,000 euros. After the 40 crowdfunding days (that’s how long this campaign will last) I will continue to work on the screenplay. The plan is to shoot the film in the early spring of 2018. The crew and the cast are  known. With this same group, we shot a video mood Board for I AM in February of this year.

Quote that inspired the maker

Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know now, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all that there will be ever to know.
