About this project
Welcome and happy holidays!
It is december and Christmass is getting closer… And we have wish bigger than ever before this year:
To raise money for making the worlds most beautifull erotic animationfilm ever called "We Got Lost on the Other Side of Wilderness", where we follow the journey of sexuality from cradle to grave, and Sara Koppel is exploring the world of erotic beauty and tells the story that sexuality is not only for the young and beautiful, but is with us from the early childhood sparks until the last sigh.
Every day in December we will post a new chapter of our "The Making of..." Christmas Calendar, You will find the chapters under UPDATES
We are Sara Koppel - animator and director - and Sune Kølster - composer and partner - and with NAKED LOVE FILM we produce handdrawn animated erotic films…
We have made two erotic animated shortfilms the last two years, the sex-educational old school cartoony and dramatic 5 minutes "Little Vulvah & Her Clitoral Awareness" that is around the world on festivals right now and the erotic, poetic and exiting 7 minutes surrelatistic trip "NAKED LOVE - Ea's Garden" that last year was on more than 80 festivals and won 9 awards…
"We Got Lost on the Other Side of Wilderness"
The film is an erotic epic lovestory, a modern fairy-tale in a burlesque near-future paralelworld, where humanity is living under the constant threat of an inevitable natural catastrophe, but still is continuing their destructive ways, trying to escape their destiny with mindless consumerism. And all over the place, nature is trying to get through the clean and cultivated appearance of human culture including of course on the erotic field…
The two main characters Storm and Saga were best friends as children, but they were brutally seperated just as they began to explore their innocent growing sexuality together. Now as adults they are working and living in the city, both very open sexual beings looking for love and pleasure.
Storm is frequenting the city night life - especially the burlesque club “The Wilderness” - fullfillings his need of passionate sex, and he is known as one of the best bangs in the city. Early in the morning he allways have to leave the warm beds, to work in the huge garbage industry, where the garbage is recycled and used to build the big dam that is keeping the raising sea from flooding the city.
Saga is a linguist travelling the world, with a speciality in the languages of nature and she just arrived in the city where Storm lives… Her studies in bodylanguages combined with her urge to express her passionate love makes her an exellent lover, with a lot of broken hearts in her trail. She is so good at the languages of nature that she can actually talk with animals, and they tell as a consequence of the behavoir of the humans, something terrible will happen soon, and they beg her to stop it.
But the film is not only about Storm and Saga, it is about all of us. We are going to get to know the freaky and sexy people from scene around the burlesque club “The Wilderness”, and be invited into a world where one story takes the other, and we are going on a trip in different peoples sexual worlds, as the main story unfolds: We are going to get exited about Storms passionate erotic meetings and Sagas seductive adventures, and we are longing for their trail to cross, but every time they are just about to meet eachother again, something happens… Will they ever reunite? Will the dam collapse and the culture of humans be destroyed forever? Will humanity ever learn?
The Timeconsuming and Hard but Great Work of Making an Handdrawn Animationfilm
"We Got Lost" is planned to be somewhere between 25 and 45 minutes and it is going to take a huge lot of work to get there… Every second of film is aproximately 12 original drawings, that makes 720 drawings pr. minute and between 18.000 and 32.400 ORIGINAL DRAWINGS for this film…
"Ea's Garden" and "Little Vulvah" was un-funded, we had no money what so ever and we where working between jobs to finish the film, and it could only be possible because it was such small films with small stories and themes… A film like "We Got Lost" can only succed if enough backers are helping us so we at Christmass evening have money enough for at team of people working on the film every day until it is finished.
We tried to calculate and we found out that we can make a film with script, designs, animation, backgrounds, coloring, actors for speak, music and sound for 75.000$… Yes it is a lot of money… Yes, it is a very small budget for an handdrawn animationfilm of that length, but we are used to make ends meet, and with this amount of money we can have Worldpremiere on "We Got Lost" in 2015!
WANNA BE A BACKER?
We cannot do this alone and we ask for your help! And of course we will reward you and be thankfull forever… If You wanna help us and be one of our backers, You will be an indispensable part of the team to make the dream come true and Saga and Storm and all the other characters come alive…
It goes like this: You look at the rewards at the collunm on the right and decide how much you want to spend. If all these amounts of money people wants to pay reaches 75.000$ THE FILM WILL BE A REALITY and You will get your Reward. If the amount of money do NOT reach the 75.000$ you will not spend a single dime… And there is a lot of great rewards! Original artwork, DVD with the film, original drawings, Saras beautifull FLORA VAGINA plates or MOVING WOMEN paintings, and You can even be an animated character in the film.
Most of the rewards will only come IF we collect the money, but the ones called UPFRONT means that no matter if it succeds or not (and no matter if You pay in the end or not) You will get the reward, for instance: Everybody who wants to donate 20$ or more gets instant acces to stream "NAKED LOVE - Ea's Garden" and "Little Vulvah & Her Clitoral Awareness"!!! WOW!!!!
Will it ever be Christmass for NAKED LOVE FILM?
We will follow the nordic christmass tradition of the TV-Christmass-calendar and every day in December unitl Christmass evening, we will post a new chapter. We will invite You into the studio to see how you make a handdrawn animationfilm, we will show you the newest work on the designs and animation, you will see how to make the score for the film and maybe You will be as crazy about the characters and world of "We Got Lost" as we are…
Every day we will also have a Christmass Greeting from friends and collegues around the world
Thank You for your time and we really really hope You will join the family of NAKED LOVE FILM!!!!
All the best Sara & Sune
Risks and challenges
With the money from all you backers Sara can buy the time to get 100% involved in the work with creating "We Got Lost on the Other Side of Wilderness" and we can even pay for getting help where we need it.
We are used to creating our films against all odds:
Keep on working, don't get stuck in details, trust your artistic choices and
Don't strive for the perfect but for the good.
We have our own hands down in every part of the production, and are used to doing everything ourselves so we can assure you that You that the film will have world premiere in 2015:)
A lot of people have asked us this question... What You can do is to "raise your pledge"... You go to "settings" and then "manage Your pledge" and then it should do! If it is because of some specific reward you just write it in a message to us, and we will remember it!
Example: You have pledged 20$ to stream the films, but suddenly You got money back from the tax and you want to be an erotic star... Then you raise your pledge to 1250$ and write in a message to us: "I just raised my pledge because i want to be an erotic star:)"
It is that easy
All the best Sune & Sara
