What are thewild cards?
You have5 "bullshit" cardsin your hand,25 "lies" cards,three"Charlie is dead" cardsanda "revolver" card.It's up to you to make good use of them!
What are the funds for?
The story of the mission takes place in a hangar. The funding will help us find a set worthy of the name, to stylize (tags, decorative items, etc ...) knowing that a hangar in Paris is expensive, especially if we have special needs (space, light, noise. ..). The set on which I based my script on is currently beyond our means (increased cost), but would be absolutely perfect for the diegesis.
The process of our school is simple: they provide us with some of the material, but we put the budget for the rest. We are 13 in our group, and you are surely aware that a film can't be done that easy: you can assemble a great team of people with essentially volunteers, but it's not acceptable that they should lose money. The makeup of pocket expenses, transport, electricity and running water of a place, etc., all this is at our expense.
And all supplies, both for technical (gaffer, gelatin ...) for the canteen, as for the truck's fuel, insurance (and the money aside for the franchise, an accident happens so quickly ...).
All costumes, props and set pieces that we collect will be the subject of extensive research, we're looking to get them for free, however there will always be a need to buy a jacket, or a tie pin ...
The makeup and hairstyle also very important to us: we do not have a lot of special effects, but the makeup of a black eye must be paid, this is a minimum so that no one loses money.
The gangsters use weapons that must be rented (we work in airsoft, with a maximum of breech locks, for the sake of realism and ease thereafter for graphic designers to reproduce the shooting, the impact and the muzzle flash (the small explosion tip of the barrel). We will also use fake smoke to have a fog effect !
So ... a smoke machine to rent and stuff like that !!
That's already a lot ... But more we are loving this project, the more we'll love doing it with your support!
