Para lograr todo esto, necesitamos tomar al rededor de 23 talleres que son impartidos por el Festival. Equipo técnico específico que nos ayudará para que nuestro cortometraje quede con la mejor calidad, recursos para pagar nuestros viáticos tanto para los talleres como para los días de grabación del rodaje y por último pero no menos importante queremos llevar nuestro cortometraje fuera de México, para que todos conozcan de primera mano lo que fue el cine de oro mexicano. 

To achieve all of this, we need to take about 23 workshops that are taught by the Festival. Specific equipment which will help us to make our short film with the best quality, resources to pay for our workshops travel expenses and for the filming days and last but not least we want to take our Short film outside Mexico, for everyone to know firsthand about the Mexican gold era of cinema.

 

Risks and challenges

Nuestro mayor desafío es lograr grabar un musical ranchero al más puro estilo del cine de oro mexicano en 48 horas, en una ciudad que no conocemos al 100%, con canciones grabadas en vivo y una edición hecha dentro de esas 48 horas. ¿El riesgo? terminar con un producto que no sea del agrado de las personas y que termine sin ser un homenaje al cine de oro.

Creemos que somos totalmente capaces de lograrlo pues tomaremos talleres que nos capacitaran para desempeñar nuestra labor de manera exitosa, además de que cada uno de nosotros tenemos no solo la mente si no el corazón entero puesto en este cortometraje, por qué amamos hacer cine y sobre todo ¡ESTAMOS ORGULLOSOS DE NUESTRAS RAÍCES!.

Our biggest challenge is to record a musical in the purest style of Mexican gold cinema in 48 hours, in a city that we do not know at 100%, with songs live recorded and postproduction made within those 48 hours. The risk? End with a product that is not good enough for the people and that ends without being a homage to mexican films.

We believe that we are capable to achive filming this project, because we will be taking workshops that will enable us tu learn and be 100% prepared. Besides that each one of us, has mind and the whole heart on this short film, because we love to make films and especially we are proud of our roots!.
