Our motivation

We want to make this because we have an ardent passion for cinema and the mise en scène we want to show the world something new and tell a story in a way that has never been done before. Our team consists of young people who want to make something together out of love for art.

We started this campaign to raise money, to be able to pay for actors and to rent equipment and to provide catering for the crew and cast. But above all that we have the opportunity to tell our story.

Our goal

I started this campaign with 1 goal to be able to tell a story and show it to the people. As well as contributing to the cinema landscape. I would like to explain some more information with the trailer. We have made this as a kind of study for ourselves, what is visually interesting for example?

That is why the trailer is purely visual and has no or little connection with the content of the film. The trailer is based on some scenes in the movie and with this we try to convey the feeling.

Here are some stills from the trailer.

Quote that inspired the maker

Never try to convey your idea to the audience - it is a thankless and senseless task. Show them life, and they'll find within themselves the means to assess and appreciate it.
Andrei Tarkovsky
