Lila is the character of a short film that somehow completes a sort of aesthetic trilogy I have started in 2008 with “A short love story in Stop Motion” and then followed in 2011 with “A shadow of blue”.This one is a very personal project and I wanted to feel as free as possible to experiment and play with the story, hence I focused only in the aesthetic aspects of it, trying not to worry much in the financial part.
The film has been created with almost zero budget, but the invaluable help of all those that participated in it.
The only way I can make it up for the whole team is to distribute the short film as widely as possible. My previous short film participated in over 100 festivals around the world, however the costs of distribution were financed by the companies that co-produced it.
This time, I'm turning to you to help me spread the film all over.
How was it done?
Check the video attached for the making of!!
What your collaboration will help achieve:
My team and I have managed to finish the film with nothing but our will, energy, enthusiasm, ambition, passion and efforts. However, we have reached the stage in which we need something that we don't have: money.
My only intention with this campaign is to cover the costs of distribution of the short film: festival fees (ranging from 35 to 65 USD), DCP conversion, DVD printing, copying and shipping, poster and postcards printing, etc.
Whatever the sum achieved, it will help get the short film in at least a few of the "good" festivals!
This campaign represents the only way I get to thank all the people who collaborated on the project, by showing them their job is being distributed and their time and energy have been well spent.
At the same time, it is also my first crowd-financing pilot project. I will be starting the pre production of my first feature film in a few months, and I want to see how this whole crowd financing thing works.
What would you get?
Apart form my and my team's gratitude, from 10 euros on you will get access to watch the film before it's official release. That means that you will be among the firsts to watch it! That is, of course, if you commit yourself to not publish the short film on any online platform! ;)
The more you collaborate with, the closer you get to getting printed images of the film and to getting your name in the short film's credits, even being able to get up to "Associate Producer" (*).
Wanna be one of the team who made this project possible?
If you can't support the project economically, you can share this campaign via a link in your social network profiles.
Also, if you happen to run a festival in which the short film could participate, that would also be welcomed.
Thank you all!
