About

WHAT

We have been filming the fire circus group Burnt out Punks on and off for approximately two years. And our love for this crazy people just gets bigger.

Burnt Out Punks is a fire circus group who has made a different way of living. They perform all over Europe and their message is clear; we’re living our dream no matter what.

We want to share the story about these girls and guys with everybody. We want you to get to know them and their weird humour, their craziness, their struggle for survival as artists and their struggle for money and - above all - their friendship, dreams and love for life.

The goal is to make a series of 8 episodes. Every episode is 15 minutes long.

WHY

Because everybody needs to take a break sometime. A break to look up and get inspired by different people. By people who have made a different choice of life.And maybe get a chance to ask yourself – do I live my life the way I want to live? Do I follow my dreams?

HOW

Almost everything we so far filmed has been from our own dusty pockets, our spare time and by our conviction that it will be worth it in the end. And if it’s not, well, at least we had fun during the time.

BUT. It would bee sooooooo heavenly fun to get the money so we actually could finish this series about Burnt Out Punks.

The money that we pledge for will go to some more filming but mainly for postproduction.

WHEN

If we get the money the postproduction will start February 2015 and the first episodes will be launched on YouTube mars 2015.

WHO

Main characters in Burnt Out Punks:

Nalleis a director and clown. He’s very weak for the burlesque. Having lived in a bus for about 7 years. Nalle is the one who started Clowns without Borders in Sweden.

Mithrasis a recovering alcoholic who struggles with his life as a father, where the pick up and drop off at daycare constantly reminds him about life as an ordinary "Smith." He’s the womanizer in the group.

Bjornis the geniusfound love during his time in hospital after a fire blast injury. He’s can manage without money for a long time and he love to learn new things. On the verge of being a wiseacre - according to the others in the group.

Ronniehas built a 15 years long career by humping a reindeer antlers. He’s a pet lover and is extremely weak for pain. He’s constantly delayed and is the group's party animal.

Willeis the boss who doesn’t want to lead. He loves to fix and blow things up. He’s starting new projects all the time and is also the only one who has the capacity to implement them. Always with a smile.

Risks and challenges

Since we’ve followed Burnt Out Punks for so long time already we almost have all the materials needed for a complete series.

The biggest obstacle (if we have to say something), even if it’s minimal, would be that the group decides to quit performing and give up their dreams. But that would be very very surprising.
