It’s official now – MFG, the film funding board of Baden-Württemberg, has granted us 28.000 EUR! This is probably the first time that a crowdfunded feature film project is recognized by a governmental film funding institution in Germany and probably also the first time ever that a Lovecraft adaptation is receiving public funding. For us it is the first time, too, and we are looking forward now towards this upcoming cooperation.
Big thanks to you all, without you we never would have come so far! It’s hard to say no, if there is such a clear demand for a film like “The Dreamlands”.
Just assembled a new sizzle reel for upcoming meetings we are going to have with film professionals at the international genre film co-production market Frontières in Brussels from Thursday till Saturday:
Unfortunately you will probably never see this video, since there is copyrighted material in it and it spoilers a lot of the story. But it really rocks and looks fantastic – which is its sole purpose – hope our final trailer will come close to this, it would blow your minds off!
Let’s see what it does to those film sales and distribution guys…
Did you all survive the solar eclipse? No one missing or one too many in your household? Good. But if you want to see what the Moon really brings, you have to get our dream diary! We’re so proud to bring out a new vessel of Lovecraft’s and perhaps soon your own dreams …
TV report about the third Genrenale in Berlin, film festival of German genre cinema. Last year our third teaser premiered there, this year the festival program grew to two full days and drew attention by German film biz veterans like director Dominik Graf. He complained about the total lack of fantasy films in Germany right at the beginning of this video clip. – Well, we’re working on it!
Each Dream Cycle story that is included in our dream diary will feature a title design by calligrapher Natascha Safarik. Here are two examples – don’t forget to check out her other artworks on her website!
Happy holidays and a wonderful new year to you all! Watch the latest video update for new information about our current production status:
We recently made a shorter version of the trailer for interested producers and other film financing contacts we’re currently in talks with. With a little more than 3 minutes you can compare it better with usual movie trailers. Like our first commenter on this video.
Thank you so much, we’ve come a good way now – we’re halfway through with the first wave of crowdfunding rewards and we’re looking forward to shoot this next year!
A joyful Advent season to all!
