About

What is this project all about?
We want to create a cyberpunk movie together with you!

DYSTOPIA consists of three phases:

1. Preproduction: From the beginning of the creative process we collected your ideas and your votes on the basic aspects of the DYSTOPIA film (e.g. the vision of the film, the moodboard or concept art). A professional team develops the story, the characters and the design based on your decisions. Through the “create and vote” principle, you decide what’s going to be shot!

2. Production: Afterwards the film will be shot in live action from April 13th until April 27th in 2013. You can still submit your sound design or music for the DYSTOPIA film until end of May.

3. Postproduction: After the shooting we will provide a content pool, where all materials and scenes can be found. We offer scenes of three different plots, alternative key scenes and endings to raise the variety of possibilities. Everyone can edit their own film with this material, add scenes, recompose the story and upload their versions. Again, the best films will be rated and voted for by the community. This means everyone has free access to all material, once the content pool is set up.

At the moment 100 team members and 200 community members are working together to develop and shoot DYSTOPIA. Please read the latest story update here.

Why should you support this project?
In short: The more, the marrier.
One of the major aspects in our apporach was to finance the production BEFORE starting the collaborative development. This is why we still guarantee to shoot this film. Without this completion guarantee it wouldn't be the same project and less appealing for the user.
That means we already financed around 54.000 $ for the shooting. With this money we can realize pretty cool material with appealing costumes, effects and production design. But it is CYBERPUNK! The rooftop is open...Raising another 10.000$ will improve the positions that are now conservatively calculated.

We can make a good movie, but we don't want a good movie. We want an amazing, fantastic, mindblowing, great movie!

What will we do with the fundings?
• Stunt Team: The budget would enable more opportunities for our Stunt Team to create even better stunts.


• VFX Department: 
Cyberpunk or Science Fiction always reveilles high visual expectations. Right now we try to keep the VFX shots low, to ensure a pretty fast post-production. With this money we could have more delicate VFX and still ensure a suitable conclusion schedule.


• SFX Prop: 
We want one of our protagonists to wear a cyberware arm. This would not only to be good-looking, but also to make the story better. In the end her body will be infiltrated by an A.I. which gains perfect control of her entire body - the cyberarm will be the first part of her body.


• Production Design: 
Our Art Department will need to build a high-tech laboratory of the year 2084. In addition to that we have 4 more locations that need to be build. With this money we would like to hire carpenters and construction workers, who can build up the locations pretty fast. 


Who are the people behind this project?
We are a team of professionals and students from Germany, based in Berlin and Ludwigsburg near Stuttgart. We love Cyberpunk movies and Open Culture! And we believe in your creativity! Our goal is, to make this project happen and to create awesome movies in a way where the basic aspects of the upcoming film creation process throughout the different departments will be created and decided by you. If you are interested in joining the Dystopia team or if you have suggestions concerning the process, please feel free to contact us.

Risks and challenges

As said before, the production is financed with an amount of 54.000 $ for the shooting. At least, the film will be shot, weather this campaign succeeds or not. With the funding we have the chance to make the movie better, cooler and more cyberpunk. But still we are a special production and had to face some fears that came along with user-generated cinema:
- community building
- financing
- find more than 100 people who will work for free and rock that shit.

But we are through that ;) Now we have to face the "normal" film production risks, that could occur:
- bad weather conditions
- actors or key positions like the director or the DoP gets sick
- fire
- loosing a big sponsor.

But we are confident of producing a great cyberpunk film which will become even better if you support it.
