Anarcho-Vintage-Romance-Decadent-Crime-Drama Movie from Venice Film Festival award-winning cinematographer Noël Burch

Slow-paced at the beginning, this story gradually becomes weird and tense and finishes with complete madness. Here lies a rare opportunity to watch a fiction movie made by a world-famous film critic.

HOW TO MAKE THIS PROJECT A REALITY

As you've probably realized, the story we want to tell takes place at the beginning of the 20th century. We'd like to make our representation of this time period as accurate as possible. To do this, we need the right costumes, accessories (including a vintage car) as well as access to a mansion (in Edwardian or Victorian style) and golf course. Together with other expenses (equipment, transportation, post-production) this will cost us good solid sum of $50,000. Right now, we're planning on filming in April and May of 2013. We hope to raise the money we need within the next two months. If you back us, you'll receive special rewards, all of which are detailed on the right side of this page.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Like any budding filmmakers, we will most certainly meet some challenges along our way.

But our multi-talented team is ready to take on anything.

Our short teaser is a fantastic example of our ability to take on challenges. We managed to create it using only resources already at our disposal. Nothing was rented or bought. We're sure that if we make our funding goal, we'll successfully complete our movie.

We are committed to making this movie happen. Ten percent of the budget has been allocated to a dub in London with British actors. In the event of a serious overspend, the movie can be finished as a silent film, complete with music, commentary, and title-cards. This would be artistically justified by the fact that the story is set in Edwardian England. Noël Burch is a world-renowned specialist in silent films. Two of his own productions, "Correction Please, or How we got into pictures" and "The Year of the Bodyguard" partly involve this film technique.

Our website, www.gentleartmovie.com, will contain constant updates about our production as soon as we start filming.
