U N I N V I T E D

a short absurd movie

About the project

             

A few months ago we shot a self-produced short fiction movie. How did it happen? Marta, who is an actress, wanted to direct her first movie; Nils, who is a director, wanted to try himself on the other side of the camera for the first time. That's how Marta and Kevin began to write the script. Writing this story we took advantage of the fact that we come from 3 different countries, so in the movie is a real mixture of languages and cultures.

The shooting took place in Valence (France) - the home town of Kevin and Nils  and it took about one week. This was really a family project: there were mostly four of us on the set (Marta, Kevin, Nils and Hyejin) and we did all the work together. Making a movie in such a small group was really challenging, but also a great adventure and a new exprerience for each of us. 

The movie is already finished if it comes to shooting, now what’s in front of us is the postpoduction. We did the shooting on our own, we did the first rough editing on our own, but as we want this movie to be perfect, now it’s time to use some help. You can see one of the movie teasers above. The movie will last about 10 minutes.

What is it all about?

A lonely hard-working man in his thirtys' comes back home from work. As usual. As every day.

But this day something disturbs his well-known, learned-by-heart precious habits. Someone is there, in front of his gate. A girl he has never seen before. Not only is she a total stanger to him, but also he doesn’t understand a word of what she's saying… What happens when he lets her into his totally organised life? Will they manage to communicate and create a connection? Or maybe inviting strangers to your house is a big mistake and it must become a nightmare?

This is not a romantic comedy with a happy ending. This is not a horror movie, either. This is a short, crazy and absurd study of the meeting of two different worlds, with a big dose of humour.

This is a story about the fear of what’s unknown.

What are the funds for?

- sound editing and mixing

- colorgrading

- music

- DVDs and posters 

- if we have enough money also submission fees for festivals

Why you should help us?

Because you certainly will laugh if you see this. That's the first point. Yes. (at least we hope so)

Because we love this story and we believe the movie deserves to be seen.

Because we already sacrified a lot of time, money and our hearts into this project and our dream is to finish it correctly so that it might do appearance at festivals and be shown to the world.

And last but not least - having this project finished with some professional help also means for us having the material to present to producers of our future movies (as we have heads full of ideas, the scripts are already writtten, waiting to be shoot!). So this movie, if we get the postproduction made by professionals, is also a step forward in our careers :) .
