2 TYPES OF SPORTS.
Why supermoto and stunt movies?
I first sit on motorcyle and started to ride a motorcycle when I was 10 or 11 years old, and since then, I can not separate from it. I am constantly connected to the motorcyle world. Over the years, I've made a good relationship with most of the racers. Supermoto is a wonderful sport for me. Back in 2007, I founded the first supermoto website in Croatia with a plan to gather in large numbers, build new friendships, experiences, and to explain and bring it closer to other people what supermoto is about and why everyone should ride a supermoto motorcycle. Motorcycles are not my only passion, I love everything that has to do with technology (cameras, software, hardware, you name it.) and so I found myself on a TV station as a TV editor, on-air supervisor, if necessary cameraman, motion graphic designer, project design, and so on. In 2008. I was the director, producer, cinematographer and editor of the Croatian Championship Supermoto competitions. It was a great experience and was a good foundation for future projects.
Today, I thought, why do not merge my two passions into one, and so make good movies and other things. And so was born the idea for supermoto the movie. My desire is to make the movie, where we would explain to the people around us, what is supermoto, from where it comes, where it is now and if it has a future.
How I love supermoto so I adore stunts. I can tell you, what they do it's not a ride. To me it looks more like art. It's like dancing with the stars. I'd like to dance with the stars. You don't?
Who will be in the movies?
I hope that the vast majority of known riders respond to my call to be in the movies. I have on my list a lot of riders such as Jurgen Kunzel, Eddy Seel, Boris Chambon, Bernd Hiemer, and the list goes on. Believe me I have good good riders.
As for stunters, it will be the top talents who are here in Southeast Europe (The Balkans).
Where will be movies filmed?
The main movie is Supermoto the movie, and it will be filmed worldwide. Some of the countries are: Italy, Austria, Germany, Belgium, France, Oklahoma, California,... there is a large number of states.
Locations for Balkan Stunters is the entire Balkan area. You must be wondering what is the Balkans?
The Balkans is a historical and geographical region of Southeast Europe and Southeast Peninsula of Europe. The area is surrounded by water on three sides. The entire Balkan area combined has about 550.000 km2

Movies will be projected on the racetracks? In 4K resolution?
Yes, but not all movies, just Supermoto movie. The main projection will be in the U.S. at supermoto racetracks. Don't worry, in Europe will be also projected, but the exact location of the projection we do not know yet, but after the campaign is over, we'll know more.
What is actually 4K?
4K (4096 x 2160 pixels) is 400% bigger than full HD (1920 x 1080 ). See picture below.
Full HD is good on most current TVs but 4K or UHD(Ultra high definition) have much much more detail on larger TV screens as well on the huge canvas. I will not go through in detail because we're not here to talking to much about resolution, right? If you are more interested in 4K, just google it and you find a ton of links about 4K and UHD.
Where will be movies distributed?
We do our best to distribute movies worldwide, so that everyone in the world can view online, rent or purchase our movies. One of them is iTunes.
When would be the delivery date of the movies?
Supermoto movie we would start shooting in April or May 2013. Now, the exact release date we have not specified, but the plan is in summer 2014.
For Balkan stunters, start shooting is May 2013. and because we have here a lot of stunters we will make a series of films. From 14. October 2013., each month we will release a movie.
We want develope a sport mobile app!
We have a smartphone, and what bothers us the most is that every sports Web site has its own application. That's not bad, but if you follow a lot of them, there can be quite amiss as you have to jump from one application to another to get to the information, and the screen of the phone you have surely filled with small icons. We want to change that. To simplify, we will make an application that will allow you to track the most popular sports news website and calendar of sporting events, all in one app.
How can you help?
The goal of this campaign is to raise $170,000 to get all projects done. I know, it's a lot of money, but making good movies has never been cheap, and our goal is a small amount of money compared to any blockbuster movies, but this does not mean that our movies will look bad. With our story, will to work, passion, persistence and professional equipment, it's totally going to be look great.
We have a deadline for our campaign which is December 31, 2012 and If you're willing to help, you can do that by pledge any amount that you see in the column (Perks) on the right side.
LIKE. TWEET. SHARE.
If you can't help us, whatever the reason, you can always spread the word about the projects. You can "tweet" us on Twitter, "Like us" on Facebook, e-mail this projects to Friends, you can share it on Blogs,... Let The World know about this amazing campaign. We appreciate your help.
You have the option to share This Campaign at the top of the page. Thank you!
What is the money for?
We thought a lot of options in terms of equipment and other things and we came to a conclusion. We will be shooting movies with the RED Epic cinema camera, because it has option to capture in 4K (5K) up to 300fps what is excellent for slow motion, and it records in RAW files so you can manipulate with the image colors how you want.
Many movies have been filmed with this type of camera. For example: Total Recall 2012, Prometheus, The Amazing Spider-Man, Judge Dredd,.... All was filmed with the Red Epic camera. As you see the camera is not a toy, it is a weapon to making movies.
Red Epic camera and Zeiss lenses:
Below is a list of what money covers:
- production crew
- camera equipment (RED, GoPro HERO,...)
- cinema lens (Zeiss, RED Pro Primes,...)
- lighting equipment
- sound equipment
- location permits
- travel costs (All Over the World)
- helicopter costs (Yes, we will use it to capture Action from the sky.)
- production office (We need space to work with this amount of production.)
- post production (Editing, sound, color grading, voice over,...)
- computer upgrades (We need upgrade computers to swallow huge 4K data.)
- huge video storage system (Example: 40min of 4K footage in 24fps is 128GB big. And of these 40min materials is not all usable. It depends on cinematographer.)
- backup of video data storage (This is very important!)
- mobile application development costs
- movie screening on racetracks
- distribution all over the world
- fundraising fee
- money transfer fee
