Due to my upcoming Startnext-Funding-Action, which will hopefully be sucessful, I’m now writing an english Blog Post with everything in it that has evolved during the Last Month after Shooting. Maybe some short introduction as well:
And this is the Team of the Short Film I made, called CABARET VOLTAIRE
We were a very very motivated and hard working group of so many wonderful people and still are. We call ourselves The Voltairians and I am their Leader. I am a Director and that’s want I want to do for my life – Making Movies.
It was my dream to make a movie about Cabaret, about a murder, about POST-GENDER and now it’s there, packed in little digital files and ready to be put together.
BUT, I also did this project on a high risk of not being able to get the money back in, that I actually spend. The last month of pre-production went by so fast, that I could not think about crowdfunding or anything before the shooting.
I had some doubts, because I couldn’t let anything or anyone or any circumstance stop me doing this project. I just couldn’t. Maybe you think it’s irrational. Yes, it was. It is. But when it comes to art, I am an irrational character. It’s the most important thing in my life. And I hope someday i will somehow get paid for doing it.
Now I’m doing the first step by THE ART OF ASKING.
If you love Film and Cabaret, Art and Thriller, Post-Gender-Feminism and Artists, please spare some money, so I can pay back 2000 Euros to a very great friend and also to produce some DVD’s, Posters and more for backers and my team.
Our short-film is staged in the Cabaret Voltaire, a club in Germany, that opens with artists and the atmospere of a Cabaret in the 1920’s. Three young adults have tickets to the show, tickets to be murdered. But they don’t know yet.
See some pictures Behind the Scenes:
We have a Creepy Clown. We have the worlds most strongest woman. A puppet and knife-thrower
We have Aetschy – The Leader. And soooo much more.
For more pictures and some german words you can also see a previous Blog entry of mine:
AND FINALLY, HERE IS THE TRAILER. THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY AND MAYBE ALSO FOR A LITTLE EXTRA HELP.
