The movie : RESET

Love, Music and Free Running (Parkour)

About the project

        

RESET is a narrative feature-length film that relates the story of several characters during a single day, in a small city in Algeria (this story could happened in Tunisia, Morocco and other places around the world). Our characters meet in a wedding hall: the bride Kamila, the singer Sonia, a kitchen aid Salima, Youcef a childhood friend of Kamila, Kamel the husband of Sonia, and Khaled the groom, among other  characters. 

All goes as planned but as usual everyone is stressed. But Youcef, who sells mobile phone accessories and practices free running, decides to bring some challenges to all the attendies that day.

A tribute to women and young people who are trying to find a way between tradition and modernity.

What are the funds for?

  • We have decided to produce this film as a collaborative project and find alternative solutions, why?

- Because the film projet allows for an environment of collaboration, participation, coproduction and crowdfunding, it has an energy that is in its DNA, it matches perfectly with all that.

We plan to shoot the film in December and January (2017/2018), but to achieve this we have reduced our budget to a maximum, the length of shooting time (25 days), the crew (20 persons), we have changed our design of the shooting (2 cameras with a minimum of light), we have put our salaries and production costs into participation  (producers, script and director). And we are working on solutions through partnership, sponsors, coproduction, etc. to be able to shoot during the upcoming winter.

Our target for this crowdfunding is 5 000 €, which will allow us to secure the shooting conditions, first:

1- Two or three plane tickets for the DOP and extra luggage (Paris/Algiers)                           828 €

2- Insurance for the film (actors, crew and equipment)                                                          2072 €

3- To purchase camera accessories, small devices and props                                             1700 €

(hard disks for back up and security, cards for shooting and accessories

for light and sound, batteries, etc.)                              

4 - Ulule commission    (8%)                                                                                                   400 €

If we reach this amount we will be grateful but if we are able to exceed it, we can cover other expenses that need your support as well:

Target 2 : Pay the salaries of the actors, talents, crew and free runners (whose salarie have already been reduced to a minimum).

1- actors, talents and free runners                                                                                23 300 €

2- Crew                                                                                                                         35 500 €

3- Taxes on salaries in Algeria (25% on crew only)                                                    11 375 €

4- The Ulule commission (8%)                                                                                      5 614 €

If by chance we arrive at this amount, we will be extremely happy but if we exceed it, wow, we will be able to have some comfort during the shooting (nights in hostels for the cast and crew, better sandwiches and have reliable transportation, etc.).

Here bonus starts (and we will definitively tell you how we will spend the money).

THANK YOU, in advance!
