What's Downunder?

‘Downunder’ is a short film lasting approximately 15 minutes set in the early 80s in the American Southwest. The peculiarity of the project is that it can work as a short movie but also as the first 15 minutes of a feature film. The main objective is to produce a film product with a final image and a cast of first line, demonstrating that the Fanda Films’ team can carry out a major project, which could become its first feature film.

The team is composed of recognized audiovisual professionals who have previously worked together in many Fanda Films productions. So ‘Downunder’ has a team that always works on the same page.

The aesthetics of ‘Downunder’ is essential, for this we have consciously chosen three aspects: locations, costumes and vehicles.

Regarding locations, the shooting is taking place in the desert roads of Almeria; recreating the deserted highways of the American Southwest.

The costumes have been chosen trying to be very faithful to the era in which the story is taking place.

And finally, the strong point is the vehicles, in particular, the following ones: a Camaro and an American patrol late 70s, a Chevrolet Caprice 82 and a lorry USA 1975 Peterbilt.

The essence of Down Under

What's ‘Downunder’? ‘Downunder’ is a group of dreamers’ bet, an ambitious challenge that we seek to be one of the most important films of the year.

Fanda Films’ team is working since some months ago for preparing everything in order to demonstrate its talent. Production, art, photography, distribution, production design, special effects, everything is ready. We just need you.

We have given wings to our imagination, we have no limits and that is why we need your help. We want to go to the early 80s in the American Southwest, we want to tell you a great story and we want you to feel involved! Only with your help we can do it. So we ask you to believe in us, we are full of talent and with a great desire to do something big.

Why a crowdfunding?

Regarding self-financing, all short films produced by Fanda Films have been financed with private capital. It is the first time we have decided to go through a crowdfunding experience as a way to help finance. The reason is simple: ‘Downunder’ is an ambitious project that requires a higher budget.

The rental of the vehicles is what increases our budget the most. However, it is essential to have them for the aesthetics, the development of history and recreation of the time.

Fanda Films, the production company behind this project, brings private capital to finance it. So the idea would be that 60% of the budget comes from Fanda Films, and the remaining 40% from this crowdfunding.

Project status

Much of the work is already done. The script is written, the crew is ready, the actors are selected, the shooting locations are located and the technical equipment for filming is chosen and managed.

In fact, we have already filmed the teaser. So, we have already had a first contact with the technical and human resources in the chosen locations.

To follow all this ... we just need your help!

We do not intend to reveal all... will have to wait a little longer for all the characters that make up 'Downunder'.

#05 / Downunder en post producción

Buenos tardes amigos y mecenas.

Como bien sabeis, de manera continuada actualizamos nuestro perfil en Facebook, con todas las novedades:

https://www.facebook.com/downunderfandafilms/

Pero como no todos nos seguís en esta red, queremos actualizaros las últimas noticias del proyecto.

Ahora mismo se esta trabajando en el tratamiento de color, para ello hemos llegado a un acuerdo con la productora Free Your Mind, una de las empresas de post producción mas importantes de España, entre sus últimos trabajos 'Una tarde para la ira' o 'El hombre de las mil caras'. El color está en manos de Helher Escribano, Raquel de la Haza y José Luis Sánchez.

Por otro lado trabajamos en los VFX, encabezados por Alex Díez y Andrés Ramírez Ramos.

También estas semanas nuestros compañeros Alf Garret e Iker Arranz están rematando la Banda Sonora Original, y José Luis Morales terminará la mezcla final de Sonido.

Como veis mucho trabajo, pero poco a poco avanzamos hacia el final.
