Will

Old age is not just 3 years anymore. Nowadays, it's a period over 20 years, and it's another lifetime to enjoy. It is important that everyone think about how they want to live it, to find how to be and elderly and not, being so, being less happy. WILL is a documentary about happy old people.

In the trailer, Eduard said that he did not know if he would be an old man because his father did not step into that stage. And that is true: formerly we hardly reached the old age. And if we reached it, it only lasted for a few years.

Currently the life expectancy in Spain is 82.4 years. It has increased by 10 years since 1970.

So, the elderly, defined as the group of population over 65 years of age, includes the step of old age as a period of almost twenty years. Therefore, we could say that currently the old age is a period of life as long or even more than the rest of stages (defined as prenatal, childhood, children, adolescents, youth and adult).

The fact that this is a relatively recent phenomenon makes us question whether we have been in time to provide sufficient alternatives, enough solutions.

Furthermore, it also encourages us to ask whether old age is interpreted in the same way we did before. It is often associated with the end, with the last years of our lives. But the increase of life expectancy has made old age to become another opportunity to continue enjoying our existence.

WILL is a documentary that will make us reflect on the different possible ways that exist nowadays to live the old age. Are there enough alternatives? Are all of them satisfying? Do they make the elderly happy? The documentary will not only show the traditional alternatives, it will also show us new options to live the old age. It will show us new opportunities.

WILL is going to change us. It will take us to the future (and to the future of others). WILL will show an optimistic point of view of the old age, as another opportunity. Because that is what it is: one more chance worth living with maximum intensity, one more chance to be happy.

FUNDINGS WILL PAY...
Will is a degree final project, so neither I or the rest of the team is gonna earn money with the project. The raised money (and a part provided by me) will be used to break even of production. This include displacements of the team to each shooting location (Madrid, Barcelona, Canet de Mar, Sabadell...), acommodations, diets, rental of photographic and video material.
We do not want to make money with the project, we want to tell the story.

    Moltíssimes gràcies pel teu missatge, Susana. És molt gratificant veure que es valora la feina i, per mi, el que més, veure que hi ha interès pel tema i pel documental.

    Com comentava, hi ha una part de finançament que aporto jo mateixa i que no he tingut en compte a l'hora de fixar la quantitat a aconseguir a Verkami. La idea és que tot sigui una mica més viable, per això demano l'ajuda. Així que si superem el pressupost fixat, els diners serviran per recuperar la inversió.

    Moltes gràcies pel suport! :)

#02 / WILL ya es una realidad

Llegó el momento. Tan solo espero que os guste tanto como me ha gustado a mí vivir esta experiencia. Que en algún momento os remueva por dentro. Que os haga pensar. Sonreír. Y sobre todo, que os haga soñar.

Gracias a todos por formar parte de este proyecto.

#01 / lo elegí con motivos

Existen momentos en los que maldigo el día en el que decidí hacer un documental testimonial. Pienso “joder, cuanto trabajo, qué ganas de complicarse”. Porque sí, realmente hay mucho, MUCHO trabajo detrás de un documental. No fijas tres días de rodaje y basta, ni tienes un guión técnico como guía. De hecho podría decir que no tienes ni guión, al menos en este caso.

Paso horas cada día pensando en cada rodaje, qué preguntas debemos hacer, qué quiero que transmitan, cómo lo grabamos para dar sensación de proximidad, qué hacer para que se sientan cómodos, que estén contentos, cómo consigo que hablen de un tema tan profundo con alguien que no conocen de nada… Horas. Cada día durante horas.

Hoy, después de la tercera entrevista, he entendido por qué escogí hacer un documental testimonial y no un cortometraje ni una sesión de fotos ni una página web. Hoy he visto que lo mejor de… read more
