Four students of masters of cinema from Spain, Peru and Brazil, embark on the adventure of making a low budget feature film. This is not the synopsis of the film, it has been our day to day for some months until now.
END was born as a project that began during the screenwriting master of Carlos III University in Madrid, three students and screenwriters; Jorge Monsalve, Carlos González, Luis Juan Salamanca decided develop this story together with Danielle Ferraz, producer and frequent collaborator in previous projects of the scriptwriter and director Jorge Monsalve.
After some professional work with international screenings, we want to make the first move for the debut!
¡But not any film!
Inti loses her father and with the help of Eme a manhunter, embark on a journey through the wild Iberian peninsula to find it. In this quest they face the heat, hunger, and dangers of the road in a post apocalyptic land that will lead them to grow and question some of their beliefs.
END, is the portrait of a fictional world conceived with the imagination of a child and that brings up some current problems that condemn our adult-dominated species. Growth, obsession and radicalism are some of the themes present throughout this story. That's what makes END a relevant science fiction that makes us think where we are heading and where we come from.
We want to bet on the things we want to say!
All the people that join us in this trip will be collaborators, that is, both the technical and artistic team will only get paid when the film generates money, making us all investors and producers of our talent and time. If it wasn't this way it wouldn't be possible to make this film.
We bet on our ideas and we are very grateful to all who join us on this experience, but we need your help because as independent creators we don't have public or private funds support. We are just us, our technical equipment.
With effort and a lot of teamwork, we built the script as we began to pre produce. Then END became an elaborate, exciting and meticulously crafted story.
During the search for locations, in Almeria, Zaragoza and the environs of the Sierra de Madrid we have seen a financial push needed to provide history with everything it deserves.
We plan to start the recordings the last week of september.
The money of your contribution will be used mainly in the expenses of travelling, props, permissions, catering, accommodation And clothing. The goal is to reach 7,000, a figure that can be misleading if we forget to subtract the commission costs 5% of Verkami and 21% VAT that we all pay as citizens. So the money will have discounts but will be good enough to get the project going.
Our goal is to reach 10,000, which would provide us with the possibility of improving the recording conditions of the film. To be able to pay our collaborators is also one of the main goals (We really want that everyone could feel welcome and comfortable, so your help can make the difference).
Your delivery will depend on your nature:
- Those that require the filming to be completed will be delivered after two months.
- Those that have an impact on filming will have to be closed at the end of August.
- Some are snapshots like being part of the private instagram of the movie, accompanying us in our day to day.
- The hotel night for two will be made as soon as the 40 days of the Verkami campaign are completed.
- Those that have to do with parties and premiere will be scheduled for mid 2018.
The "crowdfunding" or collective financing is a way to participate in projects with which you feel affinity and works in the following way:
- Select the reward you prefer.
- You will go to the confirmation screen to choose the method of payment.
- Then to the payment screen where you can enter your data.
- You will only be charged the amount you contribute when we reach the end of the campaign.
- If we do not arrive at 100%, no contribution will be charged, and your credit card will not be charged.
