„AWAY FROM HERE" is a coming of age short film, which follows the not quite normal everyday life of a five-person youth group. What is it like to suddenly stand on your own two feet? The project is realized by young and prospective filmmakers.
Berlin. While rents continue to go through the roof, Elias' mother is barely making ends meet with the price increases and is more irritable than ever. When Elias angrily leaves the apartment after a more heated argument, he doesn't want to go back and is dependent on his five-man gang. As the son of a rich real estate agent, Flávio, a member of the group and Elias' best friend, finds a solution to his problem until his parents get in the way again.
The short film „AWAY FROM HERE" offers a small insight into the everyday life of young people and their problems. How far can a friendship go until it replaces your own family?
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
The short film „AWAY FROM HERE" is not only about teenagers, but is also realized by teenagers and young adults. It is obvious that we want to address this generation with the film - but not only. Our film takes up many generational conflicts, conflicts that would never exist through sufficient communication. It stimulates young and old, in an emotional way, to think.
Why would you support this project?
Let's take a look at the German film: We see the same directors with the same actors and the same gags. Coming of age films, are often realised by people who are beyond youth - and unfortunately you see that too. Not so with us.
But to shoot the short film on a high quality level, we need professional technology and support. The production costs, such as technology, filming permits, etc., we can't afford on our own, which is why we depend on you.
We are incredibly grateful for every donation, no matter how small. To appreciate the commitment of the supporters, we have set up Rewards to give you a little something back.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
One hundred percent of all money raised goes to the film. We will use the donations to cover technology, equipment, filming permits, but also some services. In addition, we plan to submit the short film to festivals after it has been successfully produced and completed. Again, parts of the budget will be needed for this. We may also use „AWAY FROM HERE" for commercial purposes.
Who are the people behind the project?
For our project we receive support from Colonia-Nova, an event and creative company. We are also in the process of entering into further cooperations with distributors, catering, film locations and more. All news you will find in our blog.
