Teaser of "MATCHES"

"MATCHES"

“Matches” is the fifth short film written and directed by Carlos Dóniz.

The piece aims to bring the viewer closer to the visual and sound world that make up the memories of the characters and how those memories shape their memory in a certain way.

Set in a historical moment for humanity, "Matches" is a short journey with seasons that are real and others that are not, or yes.

A journey that begins when the clocks stopped around three in the afternoon on March 14, 2020.

SYNOPSIS

WE NEED YOU

How can you help us?

For us it is very important to count on you, that you are part of this team, of this family and that it becomes great. For this, we not only need you to be our patron, we also need you to be a messenger of "Matches", to help us share it so that it reaches many people and thus make it a reality.

If you like it, if you think this is a nice trip, share it on your social networks, with your contacts, circles...!

For us, that will already be a gift and we want to tell you very loudly:

THANK YOU !!

THE PROJECT

Fiction short film set in the 2020 Confinement.

Starring the well-known actor José Luis de Madariaga and the palm actress Pilar Acosta.

The human team is made up of professionals from the sector who have worked together before.

The shoot is set for three days and two locations.

The story unfolds between calm and unreal, which makes the protagonists move slowly, with silence as a witness to a reality of which we are not entirely sure.

The spaces, the small daily gestures through which the characters reflect who and how they are, even with the interior aridity in which they live.

Color, light, emptiness, sounds, are the key movements of this story. The home as one more character that brings us closer to the essence of Antonia and Gabriel. The leisurely rhythm, according to the hands of that clock that seems to have changed the rhythm of life.

TARGET

Our goal for the campaign is 6,000 Eur., which is not the total production budget, which we are going to complete with public and private funding.

The budget is destined to cover the different items necessary for the production to have the highest possible quality, and for this we want to have the best professionals, the best technical material as well as an intense network campaign and a national and international distribution that guarantees a long haul to film.

Direction of Photography, Art, Costumes, Makeup, Diets and Rewards encompass most of the budget/objective, without leaving aside the necessary and required Covid measures, unforeseen events, etc.

PHASE 1: SCREENPLAY WRITING

In May 2021 I began the first approach to what would later become the script for "Matches". Starting from a clear premise, memory and old age, I wanted to approach the figure of our older people in these years of the pandemic, how it has affected their lives, routines and expectations. Because yes, our grandmothers and grandfathers, despite what is believed, also have expectations and a deep desire to live and to continue accumulating experiences. From then on, and with the personal enrichment that the closeness of my mother (78 years old) and my great-aunt (95) gave me and gives me, I began to explore some of the basic needs of any of us, and more deep into theirs. In a short time I already had a first version of the script that over the months I was rewriting until the fourth version, which is the current one and is in need of revision.

PHASE 2: PREPRODUCTION

November 2021 - February 2022

During this phase, with the script already in its fourth version, we will work to define each aspect of the work organization chart:

• PRE-PRODUCTION AND SHOOTING OF THE TEASER
• BUDGET
• TECHNICAL AND ARTISTIC TEAM
• TECHNICAL SCRIPT AND STORYBOARD
• MEETINGS WITH THE TECHNICAL TEAM
• SHOOTING PLAN
• LOCATION SEARCH
• REHEARSALS WITH THE ACTORS
• MARKETING STRATEGY AND DISSEMINATION IN NETWORKS

March 2022

Project presentation to the VERKAMI crowdfunding platform.

April - May 2022

VERKAMI crowdfunding campaign.

PHASE 3: SHOOTING

June - July 2022

The filming of "Matches" will consist of three days that will be planned and scheduled based on the date availability of all the technical and artistic staff.

PHASE 4: POSTPRODUCTION

August - October 2022

PHASE 5: DISTRIBUTION

December 2022 is the estimated date for the beginning of the distribution of "Matches", which will be in charge of the distributor that is currently interested in it.

PHASE 6: DELIVERY OF REWARDS

December 2022 and January 2023 are the dates of delivery of the rewards to those people who have been patrons of the short film.

COMMUNITIES, CIRCLES AND CONTACTS TO MAKE THE CAMPAIGN KNOWN

The success or not of the crowdfunding campaign depends on the contributions of the people who act as patrons of the same, for them it is not only necessary to provide the project with a good presentation with all the important information about it, but also to approach all the channels broadcast of the campaign.

In this sense, and based on the personal contacts of each member of the team, the dissemination strategy is fundamentally based on social networks:
