About the project
LOCKLINEA DANCE FILM THAT PORTRAITS THE TENACITY OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT.

IN THE BEGINNING 

Sunset is a dance film that explores the depths of the human soul from a shallow beginning to a total immersive conclusion. Sunset examines the elements that provoke our innate self-defense mechanisms, often activated to protect our feelings from being hurt. This instinct to protect and shelter our vulnerabilities can leave us feeling disconnected from society, abandoned, isolated, utterly alone. Loneliness is the father of self-destruction, how can we make him a better parent? 

The inspiration for this emotional and powerful project revealed itself when trying to answer the question, which narrative are we all found in? What story includes everyone and brings us all together? We have all been touched by loneliness in one sense or another. "Can you see yourself reflected in my loneliness? I see mine in your sad face, even when you smile." - German - Margom Director

Do we need to fight our demons, or is there another way to find peace, love, and harmony? This film intends to explore different ways to overcome the greatest demon of all - the self. If the story is told well, we may not have to fight our demons, but tame them, befriend them and ultimately conquer them with kindness and self-love.

THIS IS A STUDENT PROJECT

Sunset is part of a final project to complete a Bachelor in Filmmaking, it is essentially a film thesis. Therefore there is no commercial intention in the making of this film other than the potential distribution of Sunset to dance film festivals and magazines. We intend to programme Sunset across Europe and even further, to prove, as part of the thesis, that this project can be included as a new genre of dance film.  

WHAT IS THE BUDGET BEING USED FOR?

The funds raised for this project will be used only for the production of the film (location, transportation, equipment, distribution, catering, cast, and crew). The intention of this crowdfunding is to cover the basic expenses of the film and to be able to send it to different film festivals.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO SUPPORT THIS PROJECT?

Sunset is a project with a strong concept that can be translated into a beautiful film - self-care. With the right tools, and your help. You can make the creation of this piece easier for everyone, help a student to become a professional filmmaker and collaborate in the distribution of the film to inspire and help anyone who is going through a difficult moment, to overcome their fears.

WHAT MAKES THIS PROJECT UNIQUE? 

What this film is exploring is the existence of a new genre of dance film. Including dialogue as another layer in the creation of this story, two dancers will be performing a contemporary dance piece that tells the story of their fears and how they fight to overcome them. 

Defining the fine line between fiction and dance. Sunset is a different type of dance film. One that uses all types of artistic languages to tell a story of hope in dark times.

Quote that inspired the maker

"This film is like a mirror, you can see yourself reflected. We all try to overcome our demons and we all try to find ways to make peace with the past."
