International collaboration within the KINO MOVEMENT
Most of the crew members of The Passersby come from "Kino Movement" - a worldwide network of independent filmmakers who are gathering at filmmaking workshops, so called "Kino Kabarets" and are making films together without any competition, just for pleasure of creating art and films in an international environment of openminded creative people.
It originated in Montreal, Canada in 1999 and that's where we are actually going to shoot our film (Kino 00). The whole BATESIAN project was iniciated by KINO 5 in Vienna and other international Kino members from other countries joined later, such as Kino Praha, Kino Helsinki and is supported by many other kino groups worldwide.
Having this international network is also a reason why we can menage this international collaboration sucsesfully. We already have well developped tools of communication, we can rely on each other even if we are not sitting in one office together and doing the pre-production in different countries and different time-zones.
We are choosing our other crew members from this Kino network - it is a way how we can make a low-budget film with people who we can trust and who will be dedicated to work with us for free even with such a small budget as we are targeting during this KICKSTARTER campaign. We like making films not for money, but for the action and experience. We are excited to do this project together and we thank all who supported us already!
From Kino with love...
