What is this project all about?

Immerse yourself in an enchanted world brimming with magic and wisdom, where Gaia, the living embodiment of Mother Nature, speaks to us. In a series of captivating short videos ranging from 60 to 90 seconds, Gaia comes to life in a style that hovers between fairy tale and fantasy, gently admonishing humanity to live in harmony with her.

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

These enchanting short videos serve as a call to reconsider and take action in the face of climate change. Gaia's loving messages remind us that every action, no matter how small, has an impact on the Earth. From a mysterious forest to dizzying mountain peaks, each episode transports us to a world where nature has a voice and shares the wisdom accumulated over eons.

The pilot film of this series was awarded Gold at the Deauville Green Awards – a testament to the creative brilliance and power of this message. Now is the time to continue the adventure. We invite you to be part of this movement by supporting our crowdfunding campaign. Together, we can create more episodes that touch hearts, inspire minds, and raise awareness about climate change. Immerse yourself in Gaia's magical stories and help us build a more sustainable and harmonious world. Every donation brings us closer to a livelier future. Let's take action together – for our Earth and the generations to come.

Why would you support this project?

The project aims to target a wide audience, encompassing individuals of all ages who have an interest in both fantasy storytelling and environmental consciousness. By blending elements of fairy tales and fantasy, the videos are designed to captivate children, adolescents, and adults alike, inviting them into a magical world while conveying the urgent message of eco-friendly living. Additionally, the project targets individuals concerned about climate change, environmental sustainability, and the well-being of the planet. Through its enchanting narrative and powerful imagery, the project seeks to raise awareness, inspire action, and encourage positive behavioral changes towards nature-friendly practices. The crowdfunding campaign targets supporters who share a commitment to making a difference and leaving a positive impact on the world for future generations.

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

With every donation, we draw closer to a future teeming with vibrancy and equilibrium. Let us unite in purposeful action – for the betterment of our beloved Earth and the generations that will inherit its legacy. Together, let's turn the pages of this captivating saga, inscribing a narrative of reverence and responsibility toward our planet's delicate ecosystem.
By supporting our crowdfunding campaign, you contribute to the manifestation of more episodes that possess the capacity to touch hearts, galvanize minds, and foster heightened awareness surrounding the climate crisis. Gaia's tales are a source of inspiration and insight, fueling the momentum toward a sustainable and harmonious world. The aim is to publish at least one new episode every month which should be freely accessible.

Who are the people behind the project?

As a video manager, I spent more than 10 years on cruise ships. During this time I had the unique opportunity to circle the world several times and learn about the impressive diversity of our planet.
This work offered me an exciting and educational life that was characterized by variety.
Hence, my doubts got more and more, especially regarding the impact this type of travel has on the ecosystem.
I began to realize that the growing cruise industry could not be integrated sustainably with natural ecosystems.
Decision for environmental and climate protection:
The turning point came on Spitsbergen in the Arctic, when I realized that a large number of tall cruise ships were now visiting this region, leaving a long, black plume of smoke over the formerly snow-white glaciers.
That day I realized that I can no longer support that kind of travel with my work, which is most damaging to the environment.
Since then I have been following my task of making a positive contribution to protect nature and dealing with climate change.
I am currently building my business, an ecological media production. The aim of this company is to produce fair, accessible and CO2-reduced content that shows the connections between climate change and thus promotes awareness of own activities.
I want to be an inspiring example of how an individual change with a conscious decision to protect the environment and climate can have a positive impact on the future of our planet.
In order to be able to realize media projects independently, without external influence and constraints resulting from customer relationships, I see crowdfunding as the only possibility of financing.
