I'm Ettore Biondo, I'm a freelance illustrator, director and motion graphics artist. My first narrative short film, "LV-225" (http://www.facebook.com/Lv225) has been selected at the Cannes
Short Film Corner 2013, has won the first prize of the "Cortissimi"
section of the Retro Film Festival 2013 in Perugia, and is official
selection at the Est Film Festival 2013, the FICBUEU 2013, the Napoli
Film Festival 2013 and the Raindance Film Festival 2013. My experimental short film "Panta rei" has been selected as Vimeo Staff
Pick, and in only 10 days it has been viewed by 50.000 people.
"UNTIL THE END OF THE UNIVERSE"
"Until the end of the Universe" is my new project. It's the story of the last man in the Universe who is trying to find the edges of the Universe itself.
It's a science fiction short film that will be shot entirely on greenscreen, and will have digital sets.
Once finished, it will be released in the film festival circuit, like "LV-225", and once it will finish it's festival roundup, will be released online.
HOW MUCH FUNDING I NEED AND WHERE IT'S GOING
In order to film "Until the end of the Universe", I will need 2000 euros in order to have a place large enough to shoot it with an actor on a 6X3 meters greenscreen. All the money will be used to rent a place to shoot the short film in Napoli, Italy, and to pay an actor that will portray the last man in the Universe.
Every "Until the end of the Universe" contributor will have their name in the end credits of the short film.
-The contributors who will give 10 euros will have their names in the end credits.
-The contributors who will give 100 euros will have their names in the end credits and a private link to see the completed short film before it enters the festival circuit.
-The contributors who will give 300 euros will have their names in
the end credits, a private link to see the completed short film
before it enters the festival circuit, and a signed concept art print.
-The contributors who will give 1000 euros will have their names in the end credits, a private link to see the completed short film before it enters the festival circuit, a signed concept art print, a special thank you mail, and an original drawing from the director.
If I don't reach my funding goal, I will make another funding campaign until the funding is complete.
A STORY OUTSIDE THE BOX
Why people should contribute to this project? Because this is a story outside the box, unconventional and surreal. It's a sci-fi story that avoids genre cliches.
I want to make an unconventional product with unconventional times, editing, images.
It's the story of a man who has lost all of his references and is forced to search inside himself and in the memory of humanity left in himself.
With this short film I want to express the fascination of extreme limits on the human mind.
