Our goal is to create a webseries with beautiful hypnotic dream sequences and breathtaking nature shots. We are an independent production by choice, interested in visual experiments and exceptional plots.
Our target group are people that are interested in thrilling series, indeginous cultures, mystery and adventure films. People with a heart for nature as well as fantastical farytales that are open to new things.
If you're interested in alternative ways of life, exited about the unconventional, and would like to support a project outside of the mainstream, become part of our project!
When we reach our funding goal your money will go entirely into the production of our series; exotic locatons, outlandish set pieces, colorful make-up und lots more.
The project is being realized in co-operation with filmArche, a self-organized filmschool in Berlin-Neukölln, that supplies a majority of the technical equipment, amongst other things.
Our team is made up of students from filmArche, as well as external filmmakers:
