About the project
LOCKLINEWhen two young small-time thieves rob a night store, their lives take an unexpected turn when they rendezvous with a beautiful female career criminal.

MAGASIN is a short graduation film of writer and director Jordy Tempelman studying at the Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU).  The film is a French-spoken, black and white, crime/drama of twenty minutes situated in the gritty and impoverished industrial suburbs of Liege, Belgium.

The story revolves around two half brothers Gerstoph (14) and Charlie (16), who want to change the prospects of their hopeless existence by travelling to Paris and build a new life there. In order to realise this dream they decide to rob a small night store, but their ambitious plan turns out different then they had expected and their quest for a better life is interrupted by a temptress; the beautiful career criminal Julie. A bond is created between the three criminals and the friendship between Gerstoph and Charlie is put to the test. Will they ever realise their dream and escape to Paris?

MotivationMy first visit in de region was in 2013 when I went urban exploring with friends in Belgium. Urban exploring is visiting and exploring abandoned buildings, often paired with photography and video. Wallonia is well-known for its many abandoned buildings and unique locations.

The area intrigued me because it is a totally different world so close to the border with the Netherlands. I researched the area and discovered the reasons for the large-scale abandonment. I also saw a lot of films from the Dardenne brothers whose films exclusively take place in that region. The themes of these and many other French language films inspired me to write this story.

VisionMAGASIN is a challenging and engaging story, which explores interesting themes like the quest for identity and a place in the world, and the true value of friendship. With this movie we’re not only trying to create a short film but also a statement; that short films made by our film school can be created on another level; with international potential, in a foreign language, visually challenging en narratively engaging. The entertainment value is also a very important aspect of the film.

Realisation MAGASIN is a big production with many aspects to be realized. To begin production the required financial goals need to be reached. The current budget of the film is estimated at €20.000 and a large portion of that we want to realise trough crowd funding here on Cinecrowd. The rest of the budget will come from our own investments, donations from sponsors and national and local (culture) funds in The Netherlands and Belgium.
