About

What:

Traffic is an important film to be made. It deals with a controversial subject and visualizes the background story of a headline which is usually dramatically portrayed in the news or technically summarized in the newspapers. Modern life repeats itself and therefore it should be examined thoroughly to make clear that there is no such parent that forgets the child deliberately but that there are influences, stress symptoms such as burn out, a moment of absence and the pressures of modern life.

It suggests a realistic and profane explanation rather than motive for happenings as shocking as a child suffocating in the car, an employee committing suicide due to bad work conditions or a teenager massacring his teachers and fellow students at school

I’m very keen on making this film as I regard it as mean to awake the awareness. It should be a film that guides one through an experience to that every average person can relate to. Every person that works hard to sustain his existential base.


How:

I managed to assemble a talented cast and crew in the NL and in Thessaloniki in Greece by leading intense talks with potential actors. The main actress will be Stella Ermi, a talented actress that has gathered her experience in multiple theatre plays, commericals and short-film shoots.

Most locations have been confirmed such as a hospital, a gas station, an apartment. The car, which is the vehicle of the story, literally and metaphorically is standing ready to be picked up for a small fee. Beginning of August I will be in Thessaloniki to see all locations and and to arrange the exact dates of the shoot according to the availability of the locations. Further I will prepare the actors for their performance

What the money is for:
equipment:
LED lite panels plus rig
reflectors
prime lenses
car rig
general lightning equipment
2 cars (1 for throughout the story and 1 for the closing of the story where the child is found in the car)
catering
cast and crew
festival fees and distribution
props

post-production
