We reached our Kickstarter goal and WHY should you still pledge for PLUNGE THEORY?
Our original goal was much higher but giving the time we had, we decided to mark our kickstarter goal $5,200. With your generous extra support, we can shoot on a better camera, like Alexa, get better lighting equipment, more cinematic locations and have more resources to give this inspired film the polish it deserves.
A couple of free thinkers decide to set a time limit to their relationship to overcome their fears and live in the moment
A NOTE FROM DIRECTOR AND CO-WRITER, ALEX BURUNOVA:
"I've been wanting to make a film like this all my life.
It's not just about a couple exploring a theory by setting a time limit to their relationship. It's an exploration into the human perception of time and existence. An attempt to truly live in the moment.
While visiting Barcelona, I started thinking about a theory.
Death – is the only certainty of human existence and the only fact we run away from until it finds us. They say, if you accept death as inevitability - you will find happiness. Because you will learn to live in the moment. Logically, how much are you really living your life if your thoughts are focused on the regrets of the past or fears of the future? All you have is now. Truly living in the moment translates into enlightenment.
What if you applied this theory to LOVE... Since nothing is permanent, love will also inevitably end. What happens if you assumed this as a fact... Would you love more? Would it be more intense? Would you be able to let go of your fears? Fear of commitment? Fear of trusting another person? Would you learn to LOVE IN THE MOMENT?
This film is our answer. It's an inspiring message that wants to be told."
A NOTE FROM WRITER AND PRODUCER, IGNACIO F. RODO:
"What if she finds out I snore? What if Johnny Depp goes single again and asks her out? What if she doesn't really enjoy having sex with me? What if she gets bored?
I'm Ignacio F. Rodó, co-writer and producer of Plunge Theory. I think relationships are somehow a balancing act between love and fears. So, what if we could get rid of all our fears and just live the love? What if we made a short film about it so some actors could try it before we do? A pretty good deal, eh? I've written more than a dozen short films since I started filmmaking and my goal is making films that I'd like to see. This one - I'd love to watch"
We will be producing the film in collaboration with Barcelona-based creative collective piopio projects (http://www.piopioprojects.com).
This creative group of hardworking storytellers have made several short films and are now developing their first few feature film project. Their search for original ideas has led them to drama, comedy, experimental, underwater, erotic, war, animation and documentary films in less than a year since its founding in 2011.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
The film is set to be filmed in Barcelona, Spain. As the city inspired the story, it became one of its characters.
Your contributions will go towards the production costs once already there. They will not be used for airfare or lodging.
Your donations will help us pay for things like equipment rentals, location fees, wardrobe, props, hair and makeup, production design, insurance, sound design, feeding the cast and crew, which is of utmost importance, and all other production expenses.
DELIVERY OF INCENTIVES
Once PLUNGE THEORY is funded, the film is scheduled to shoot the third week of November. After which, post production will take place in December and January. As soon as that is completed, if you've pledged $35 or more, a DVD of the finished film and all other physical rewards will start being mailed to you in February. IMDB credits will be posted during the month of February, as soon as the film is completed.
If our goal is not met, you will not be charged for your pledge. As Kickstarter states, "Explain that if you don't reach your goal, you'll get nothing and everyone will be sad." That is true. So please help spread the word!
Thank you so much in advance for your support!
Sending Love and Light,
