Project description show hide

What is this project all about?

Young scientist Claire, 29, faces a tough selection process for a future space mission. The demanding training and education leave their mark on her, she clearly notices the physical and mental exhaustion, which she hides from her commander Isaac and her fellow trainee Sergio.
But before Claire can think about her situation, the three embark on a mountain hike where Claire and Sergio are supposed to put their skills to the test. Under the enormous challenge and constant supervision, Claire's tension rises and it's only a matter of time before Claire has to make the most important decision in her life.

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

We address all people who feel pressured by their work, society, the wishes of other people and their own goals.

Why would you support this project?

Claire's story is a reflection of our society, which is characterized by pressure to perform. Many people find it difficult to even recognize their own limits, often at the expense of their work, their safety or their health. We want to explore this situation and bring it to the screen.

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

The money will be used for the preparation, filming, post-production and release of the short film.

Who are the people behind the project?

We are students at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences and will be making our graduation film "Space Weather" in autumn 2022. These include Leopold Hotz (director), Clara Dörholt (production and set design), Maxim Kuznetsov (camera), as graduates. Fellow students Michelle Frey (screenplay) and Lucas Yalaza (production) are also on board.
