Update #8 (November 11, 2019): We finished shooting a couple of days ago, on November 7th! Over 90 hours of footage shot in 4 months (starting July 3rd) in 11 cities and villages from Romania, Turkey and Ukraine (plus the US via Skype!), and that’s without counting the pre-recordings we did in the last years while developing the project, which might also end up in the final cut! Now we’re about to begin a long process of editing, and once we have a teaser trailer we’ll launch a new crowdfunding campaign to be able to submit the movie to top festivals! Thank you so much to everyone who helped us so far!
Update #7 (August 6th, 2019): We shot for about two weeks in Romania and now we’re back in Turkey, getting ready for another important scene. We also received an extra investment to finish shooting, and for the rest of expenses (editing, festivals) we plan to make a new crowdfunding campaign as soon as we have a trailer.
Update #6 (July 6th, 2019): We have a new investor: Luan da Silva Garibaldi! So now we only need $2,665 more to finish shooting the movie the way we want!
Update #5 (July 5th, 2019): Screen captures from the first two days of shootings:
Update #4 (June 22, 2019): We’re in Ceșme (Izmir, Turkey), a bit late on filming, doing the last technical preparations, with the goal to start shooting either this evening or tomorrow morning. We will continue to accept the so-much-needed donations and investments for the entire duration of production and post-production. Your support is essential!
Update #3 (May 22, 2019): We start shooting on June 16th. There’s very little time left to raise the full budget, so we did some changes to be able to shoot with even less than planned. But it’s crucial that we get more money, otherwise we might be forced to stop in the middle of shootings. Please check this site and support the project anyway you can, via investments, donations or sharing. Thank you so much!
Update #1 (March 26, 2019): We just got a new $500 contribution from Jacob Hair and he became our new Associate Producer! So now we need $4,500 more to shoot the movie, either from investments or donations. Please share!
Update #0: After a prolonged hiatus due to various reasons (con-artist Andrea Corbella being the main one), we finally managed to restart pre-production and this time for good, with a highly improved concept and a mind-blowing ending for the movie. We’re getting ready to shoot this spring (June 2019), but we need at least $5,000 extra budget because of all the extra expenses. You can support the project by either donating or investing in exchange for producer credits (onscreen and on IMDb) and returns on your investment:
- $5,000 investment: Executive Producer official credit + 10% of the revenues
- $2,500 investment: Associate Producer official credit + 5% of the revenues
