What would you do if every day you watch how an older boy hits a smaller one at the exit of the school?

From a distant and grown up perspective, the answer seems easy... but for Violeta, our main character, it is not to be that way.

Violeta (11-12 years) is sick of an unfair world. She comes from a humble family, and she lives with injustice day after day.

From another point of view, if Violeta was in your class and came to say hello... you wouldn’t know who she is. She is invisible to the rest of the world, but this, as opposed to what you could think, this is what she wants, she is happy this way.

But the day she sees someone who participates in bullying a schoolmate, something is going to change inside her.

A feeling of impotence is going to empower her, to the point of wanting to act, finish that situation from once and for all and stop being invisible.

The logical answer to her problem seems to begin, obviously, for her padres, right? But come on... be realistic... After what I have told you about Violeta and her family, do you really think that she would do that?

The second possibility, of course, is to address to the teachers of the school. Right, but this is something that I have told you before...

If you have scroll up to check it, maybe you have stayed the same, don’t worry, I told you...

The bullying is taking place outside the school.

The bully of our story may have many defects on the contrary, he isn’t anybody’s fool. When a student of an education centre has abandoned the building, the school is no longer responsible for whatever can happen, and our bully takes advantage of this little "legal vacuum".

So... What she can do?

We are without options...

Let’s go to give you a white text space to think a little bit.

Ok, let’s go: spoiler on the next picture.

Exactly! Violeta will decide to inspire on the figure of the fight against the injustice more close a child can have: A SUPERHERO!

The importance of a hero is to be a symbol.
The importance of a hero is to be a symbol.

At the end, all I want to tell you is the story of one step. This is a change. This is a choice. This is a decision.

This decision is the one that Violeta is going to take. Do something. Something that, unfortunately, not everyone does.

In spite of everything I have told you... Who knows if he will achieve it?

To find out, help us to make this short film come true ;)

#02 / CONOCE NUESTRA HISTORIA

“No es solo una S. En mi mundo significa esperanza”
(Superman, DC COMICS)

Esta es la historia de un paso. De una elección. De una decisión.

¿Qué diferencia a un héroe de una persona normal?

¿Son sus habilidades? ¿Quizás su moral? ¿Su fuerza? ¿Su inteligencia?

Yo creo que no es nada de eso.

Un héroe es aquella persona que escoge el camino acertado en el momento oportuno. La que continúa firme cuando todo el mundo se ha rendido. La que no aparta la mirada cuando observa algo que considera injusto, y actúa en consecuencia.

Pero sobretodo (y este es el punto más importante de nuestra historia) un héroe puede Y DEBE ser un símbolo y una inspiración para los demás.

Esta es la historia de un héroe real.

En nuestro mundo, un chico de clase alta, popular y guapo puede ser un maltratador, y una pequeña e indefensa niña puede ser una superheroína.

El personaje de Violeta, a simple vista, no tiene nada de especial. Es invisible para todos los demás, no se mete con nadie, no interactúa con nadie y jamás recordarías su cara.

Violeta no es nadie… Y es todo el mundo.

Lo que hace especial a Violeta es el cambio que en ella se va a producir y justo ahí… Es donde comienza nuestra historia.

Ella únicamente busca acabar con una situación que considera injusta y le molesta. Ella siente que no es quien debería ser.

Pero… ¿Qué puede hacer ella cuando el “villano” se aprovecha de un sistema que no protege a los más desfavorecidos?

Si este cortometraje consigue hacerse realidad, lo veréis.

En definitiva, lo que se quiere conseguir con esta historia es inspirar a toda clase de gente y de todas las edades a que actúen o denuncien cuando presencien situaciones de injusticia social: como es, precisamente, el bullying.

El mensaje al espectador es claro: cualquiera puede convertirse en un superhéroe, sólo hace falta dar el primer paso.

Si Violeta puede… Tú también.

Un mensaje positivista que creemos, hoy en día, hace más falta que nunca.

#06 / EMPEZAMOS! :)

Después de la gran noticia que ha sido conseguir superar con éxito la campaña de Verkami, el equipo de "Súper" nos hemos puesto ya manos a la obra para llevar este proyecto a cabo y al mejor puerto posible.

Tras una primera, fructífera y divertida primera reunión de nuestros queridos jefes de equipo hemos aclarado una primera aproximación del calendario que vamos a seguir y que queremos compartir con todos vosotros:

  1. La pregunta del millón la respondemos la primera: Hemos acordado que la mejor fecha para rodar el proyecto será en septiembre-octubre por tres motivos: el primero es un mejor "look" para el cortometraje. La luz natural del verano es estéticamente menos bonita que cuando estamos entrando en invierno y el sol se va separando. Además dejándolo en septiembre-octubre evitamos problemas de lluvia.

El segundo motivo es el calendario de los miembros del equipo. Hacerlo antes… read more

#05 / GRACIAS, GRACIAS Y....GRACIAS

Hola a todos!

Hoy, por fin, os traemos la mejor noticia de todas: HEMOS CONSEGUIDO COMPLETAR NUESTRA CAMPAÑA DE VERKAMI CON ÉXITO. Incluso han sobrado 5 días!!

Gracias a todos los que habéis hecho posible Súper. Sin vosotros habría sido imposible.

Ahora, con el objetivo ya conseguido, la responsabilidad cae sobre nosotros, y aquí os dejo nuestra declaración de intenciones:

Somos totalmente conscientes de la confianza que se ha depositado en nosotros y la responsabilidad que eso conlleva. Es por eso que, aquí y ahora, os prometemos dejarnos la piel y hasta la última gota de sudor en conseguir que de aquí salga el mejor producto posible para vosotros y el público en general.

Es una gran oportunidad para nosotros y no la vamos a desperdiciar.

Dicho esto, os recordamos que ahora mismo aún faltan 4 días para que se finalice la campaña de verkami y aún se puede aportar… read more

#04 / ÚLTIMO SPRINT!

91% de la recaudación conseguida...
Que son 5.506 euros acumulados de 6.000...
9% para llegar al 100%...
Que son 494 euros restantes...
Pero lo más importante: 6 DÍAS PARA LLEGAR A NUESTRO OBJETIVO...

Estos son los datos de nuestro Verkami hasta la fecha y estamos increíblemente orgullosos de haber llegado hasta este punto de esta forma.

Falta muy poco para llegar a cumplir nuestro objetivo y estamos muy agradecidos por todas las muestras de apoyo que se nos han dado y a todos los mecenas que ya han pasado a formar parte del proyecto con nosotros.

Pero necesitamos llegar a ese 100% para que todo haya servido y para poder realizar el proyecto con todo el amor y cariño que tenemos preparado para él y que, estamos seguros, no os decepcionará.

Por eso, ahora más que nunca os pedimos que hay que dar este último sprint juntos y conseguir ese 9% que nos falta :)

Si lo hacemos todos juntos estoy seguro de que podemos conseguir cualquier objetivo.

#03 / DECLARACIÓN DE INTENCIONES

A estas alturas ya hemos explicado gran parte de nuestras intenciones en redes, pero creo que es fundamental que todos sepáis porqué es importante colaborar con este proyecto.

Os recuerdo que "Súper" trata la temática del bullying (acoso escolar), pero no de cualquier forma. Nuestro cortometraje no se centra en víctima y abusón. No pretendemos desarrollar el discurso clásico sobre el acoso.

En "Súper" nos colocaremos en el punto de vista de un sector que tiende a olvidarse cuando se piensa en el acoso: el del espectador.

Defendemos que los abusos no solo se producen porque exista un abusón y una víctima, si no, también, porque TODO EL ENTORNO LO PERMITE.

Queremos inspirar a todo el mundo a que cuando vea un abuso actúe. Que no lo permita.

Ahora os quiero hablar, también, de las posibilidades que tiene este cortometraje si llega a realizarse.

La ruta natural y… read more

#01 / AVENTURAS EN EL SALÓN DEL CINE

Me hace cierta gracia empezar este post diciendo que, al principio, no éramos muy partidarios de empezar una campaña de crowdfunding.

Creíamos que todo consistía en acosar a la gente por internet para que pusieran dinero en una causa que no era la suya y nos parecía algo violento para ambas partes.

Pero con los pocos recursos de que disponemos, nos fuimos quedando sin opciones para financiar nuestro proyecto y cada vez se acercaba más la idea de abrir una campaña en Verkami.

Cosas de la vida, que dimos con el anuncio de “Crowdfunding en vivo” en el Salón del Cine y las Series.

¿Crowdfunding en vivo? O sea que durante los tres días, 8 proyectos en busca de financiación (corto, largo, webserie, ficción o documental) podían estar presentes para interactuar con el público visitante y explicarles el proyecto cara a cara… Ya no sonaba tan mal ¿no?

Los pasados 2, 3 y 4 de febrero de 2018 defendimos a capa y espada nuestro proyecto con un público masivo.

¿Asustados? ¡¡Y tanto!!
