What is this project all about?

"Destruction of Silence" - the story

Near the end of the war, april 1945 in germany. You could say, there are almost a few hours till the dread has an end. After his family died in a bomb attack the six year old german boy Phillip Schmidt has to go his own ways. Very hungry and exhausted he meets a few american soldiers, which are on a patroullie in Northern Hesse. Short time after this there is a big skirmish between them and a little troup of soldiers from the german Wehrmacht. Only Phillip and a GI named Jack Brown survive. From this moment on there is a special father-son-relationship between them, which will last till their end of days...

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

the vision

With dramatical pictures in the end of the second World War we will tell you a story with heart. So we could show you that even in times of utter chaos and destruction there could happen something good. Without any political background we would show you, how it really was and how it could happened. Two humans of different origin and ages find together and learn to know each other.

This movie is for everyone. For everyone who would learn about human goodness...

Why would you support this project?

worth of the story

Every producer thinks of his own project that it is the best on the world. We think, you should evaluate, whether it is good or not. So you could say, how much this is worth to pay for. Sometimes there is no need for the big money to make something good. But sometimes there is more necessary to make good pictures to transport the right message. We wanna mix professional pictures with big emotions and hope you will find a necessity to help us.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

the realisation

Costumes, catering and technic cost a huge load of money. We´re not thinking of buying. But the rent is expensive, too. There are some more film shootings to take and for this we need more money. For the success of the project.

Who are the people behind the project?

the crew

Jakob Gisik (author, producer, director)
Marco Mansheimer (production management)

Our team is filled with many cameramen, soundmen, pyro technicians, photographer and fitter on the american and the german side. Many assistence and helper, a set driver, stunt coordinater, mask and so on. Many extras from Kassel other near citys. Sometimes we were over 130 persons on one set. And there will be much more.
