We want you to know a little bit about us so that YOU can partner with US in making this film and in making history!

WHO ARE WE?

Marie Roux: Actor, Writer, Producer Owner of MRfeatures

Nathalie Camidebach: Director, Producer Our collaboration created the international success of REMEMBER THE EYES and INNOCENCE REMAINS. We have a very talented team of award-winning filmmakers, who have worked together on several features and who believe in the importance of our project. But today we need you to take our team and vision to the next level: a feature film. We’ve proven we have the dedication and commitment to tell compelling stories with high production value – the only difference now is budget. Help us make the difference!

OUR PROJECT

We are raising money to help fund I LEAVE HERE, a feature-length film based on Marie Roux personal’s journey. The script is co-written by Roux and award-winning screenwriter Jennifer Deaton, who has served as a Story Analyst for A-list Hollywood talent for over ten years and who is currently the sole Los Angeles Story Analyst for Focus Features.

I LEAVE HERE will be shot in Los Angeles, California - as well as in the Aquitaine Region of France (if budget allows) - in Summer/Fall 2011.

I LEAVE HERE is a thought-provoking and unique love story, following two remarkable women – Chloe is French, Emma is American – who build a life together in the States. That life is jeopardized when Chloe’s visa is denied.

Until the U.S. legislature passes The Uniting American Families Act or gives gays some version of federal marriage rights, one of these women will be forced to make a profound sacrifice in order for them to be together – giving up family and career in order to be reunited.

I LEAVE HERE is not a political film, but a romance in which the lovers are driven apart by political forces. After the tremendous success of BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN and MILK, it is time now for our story.

But our film’s reach also goes beyond this demographic in exploring universally relatable conceptions of home, duty, and destiny. Home is not only where the heart is but also where one’s calling lies. When equally sacred values are in conflict, how does one choose between them?

OUR MISSION

We believe that Art shapes the world we live in. Our medium is FILMMAKING. While embracing the rhythm of images, the poetry of words, the sound of music, the heart of Acting, we can and will make a difference. Because ART MATTERS. We are committed to use our talents to inspire others and to illuminate the truth and beauty of the human journey.

HOW THE FUNDS WILL BE USED? Your contribution will go towards equipment rental, props, wardrobe, set dressing, editing, permits, tapes and other production expenses.

OUR GOAL Our goal is $200,000 to complete our film. The more funds we raise, the more resources (including cast and crew) are available to us. Please Visit our Website @ www.ileavehere.com to learn more about this film.

HOW KICKSTARTER WORKS?

Your credit card is only charged, if and when, we reach our goal. If we do not reach our fundraising goal by the project's stated deadline, we lose ALL the money that has been raised. All "backer rewards" are only redeemable when the project reaches its fundraising goal. After that time, backers will be contacted by the project's producers to obtain any additional information that may be needed.

CAN I INCREASE MY PLEDGE ONCE IT’S BEEN MADE? 


YES! Once you donate to our campaign, you may want to change your incentive reward to a different one, and increase your pledge amount. To do so, go to Kickstarter and sign in. If you go to our campaign page, the green “Back This Project” button has been replaced with a blue “Manage Your Donation” button. Click it and you can enter a new amount, or choose a new incentive. 
What happens if the money isn’t raised in time? Unfortunately nothing. If our goal isn’t met before the deadline, no money changes hands and no movie is made. We want to avoid this scenario at all costs!

CAN WE EXCEED THE GOAL? 


YES! What an amazing problem to have. Kickstarter will allow as much money as is given before the deadline. Maybe that would mean a more widespread theater release, or more resources available to us. The possibilities are endless.

I AM NOT IN THE US. CAN I STILL PLEDGE TO PROJECTS?

YES. You can pledge from anywhere in the world.

I AM A NON-US AMAZON ACCOUNT HOLDER AND I CAN'T MAKE A PLEDGE, WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?

If you are a non-US Amazon Mechanical Turk user you may experience a problem trying to pledge. But we have a solution. You'll need to create a new Amazon Payments account during check-out. Sorry this is annoying. We've alerted Amazon about this.

Bonjour…Hello !

Quelques infos sur nous afin que VOUS ET NOUS puissions tourner un beau film!

QUI SOMMES-NOUS ?

Marie Roux : Actrice, Scénariste, Productrice Présidente de MRfeatures

Nathalie Camidebach : Réalisatrice, Productrice

Notre collaboration s’est traduite par le succès international de nos deux courts-métrages Remember The Eyes et Innocence Remains. Nous avons une équipe, très talentueuse de cinéastes primés, qui ont participé au succès de nombreux films et qui croient en l'importance de notre projet. C’est avec la même passion, le même engagement qu’aujourd’hui nous nous lançons dans ce long-métrage; seul le budget change! On a besoin de vous!

NOTRE PROJET

Nous recueillons des fonds afin de financer I LEAVE HERE, notre long-métrage coécrit avec la scénariste reconnue Jennifer Deaton, l’unique analyste de scénarii pour Focus Features Films à Los Angeles. I LEAVE HERE sera tourné à Los Angeles, Californie - ainsi que dans la région Aquitaine en France (si le budget le permet) - en Eté/Automne 2011.

Inspiré d’une histoire vraie, I LEAVE HERE est une histoire d’amour entre deux femmes: Chloé, Française, et Emma, Américaine. Toutes deux construisent leur vie commune aux Etats-Unis. Cette vie se trouve menacée lorsque le renouvellement du visa de Chloé est compromis.

Jusqu'à ce que la législation américaine adopte The Uniting American Families Act et accorde aux homosexuels le droit au mariage et à l’immigration, pour rester ensemble, l'une d'elles devra faire un sacrifice et ainsi quitter famille et carrière.

I LEAVE HERE n'est pas un film politique, pourtant c’est une romance déchirée par les pouvoirs politiques. Après l'énorme succès de Brokeback Mountain et de Milk, voici un film qui lutte contre cette injustice.

Mais notre film va au-delà de ce thème particulier en explorant des valeurs universelles où chacun peut s’identifier telles que la notion de famille, de devoir, ou encore de destinée. Se sentir chez soi ce n’est pas seulement être proche de la personne que l’on aime, mais aussi a l’endroit de ses rêves. Mais quand nos valeurs sacrées sont en conflit, comment peut-on choisir entre elles?

NOTRE MISSION

Nous croyons que l'art façonne le monde dans lequel nous vivons. Notre outil: LE CINEMA. Au travers du rythme des images, de la poésie des mots, des émotions du jeu et de la musique, nous voulons témoigner de la vérité et de la beauté de l'aventure humaine.

COMMENT VOS DONS SERONT UTILISES?

Votre contribution servira à la location de lieux, équipement, accessoires, costumes, décors, studios de montage, permis, cassettes et autres frais de production.

NOTRE BUT

Notre objectif est de 200,000 dollars pour réaliser ce film, et plus nous recueillerons de fonds, plus nous aurons a notre disposition ressources et talents.

Rendez-vous sur notre site internet www.ileavehere.com afin d’en savoir plus sur notre film.

COMMENT FONCTIONNE KICKSTARTER?

Votre carte de crédit sera débitée à la date butoir uniquement si notre objectif est atteint. Qu'advient-il si l'argent n'est pas obtenu dans les délais donnés? Malheureusement, rien. Dans ce cas, il n’y a ni argent échangé ni de film fait. Nous voulons éviter ce scénario à tout prix! Une fois l’objectif accompli, les producteurs du projet vous contacteront pour vous demander les renseignements qui peuvent êtres nécessaires à la livraison des récompenses.

EST-CE-QUE JE PEUX AUGMENTER MON ENGAGEMENT APRES AVOIR RENTRER UNE SOMME INITIALE?

OUI! Après avoir donné une première fois, vous pouvez modifier votre récompense et augmenter le montant de votre don. Pour cela, reconnectez-vous sur la page de notre projet de Kickstarter ; la touche verte "back this project"(Soutenir ce projet) a été remplacée par une touche bleue "Manage your donation" (gérer votre don). En cliquant dessus, vous pouvez entrer un nouveau montant, ou choisir une nouvelle récompense.

POUVONS-NOUS DEPASSER LA SOMME FIXEE ?

OUI! Mais quel merveilleux problème! Kickstarter permet d’aller au-delà de la somme fixée. Cela peut amener une plus grande sortie dans les salles de cinéma, ou avoir à notre disposition plus de ressources. Les possibilités sont infinies.

PUIS- JE CONTRIBUER A CE PROJET SI JE VIS EN DEHORS DES ETATS-UNIS?

OUI vous pouvez vous engager de partout dans le monde.

JE NE SUIS PAS TITULARIE D'UN COMPTE AMAZON AUX ETATS-UNIS ET JE NE PEUX PAS FAIRE DE DON, QUE SE PASSE -T-IL ALORS?

Vous pouvez rencontrer un problème. Mais nous avons une solution! Vous aurez besoin de créer un nouveau compte de paiement Amazon lors du check-out. Désolé, c'est ennuyeux. Nous avons alerte Amazon a ce sujet.
