Hello You Creatives / Riot Cinema / Lomography International, France & Spain
About the Film
Everything That Moves Is Moved By Others is an upcoming independent short film
about someone without identity that lives
everyday in the same day. But, a whisper under a moving rock will make him
realize that anyone can
give motion to everything else. As the beloved moves the lover of love, or the
earth revolves around the sun by gravity. And so on, until you reach the sphere
of fixed stars, that should also be moved by something. Because everything that
moves, is moved by others. But if for some reason, the moving cause stops, all
the movement will cease.
The short film has a surrealistic cinematic style, and is inspired by some premises of the New Age movement. The story picks up and plays with many philosophical ideas, such as those concerning reality, authenticity, determinism, free will and human potential.
Why We Need Your Help
story has got a great start and now we need your help. Our goal is to achieve $16,000, that
will allow us to film the second part of the short film and to fully fund it. We have been working on this project since January 2012, with
a lot of research, creative thinking, sketching and writing. We decided to
start shooting the first part of the short film in May, and we drove all the
way to The Death Valley for a one-week shoot. Back In San Francisco, we edited
the first 30 rolls that we filmed, and we made the first part of the short
film. Now, The primary goal is
to finish the story of Everything That Moves Is Moved By Others. We want to
film the second part of the story, and try to do our best to make this short
Where and How We Are Shooting
are filming it with LomoKino a weird analog camera from Lomography, that shoots on any 35mm film. It
will add a dreamy photographic texture. And we have filmed in Death Valley, CA. An exceptional place
where you can find moving rocks in the middle of the desert. What? Did you say
moving rocks? Yes, it is a geological phenomenon where rocks move in long tracks along the
valley without human or animal intervention. Finding this place in our location
research was amazing; it is the perfect setting for the concept of our film. Everything that moves, is moved by
Why We Are Making It
We are students and we
always try to spend as little as possible. But this is our first “big
production”. We are looking for funding because even a small budget
is a huge budget when you try to film it with your personal budget. A friend told us about the crowd funding,
a new way to fund creative projects which anyone can make a little donation and
get a reward. So we thought - that idea is amazing - It is like the concept of
our short film - Everything that moves, is moved by others - Lets do it!
