Kedves Leendő Támogatónk!

A Menjek/Maradjak Erasmus Euro Media díjas dokumentumfilm-sorozat, amely a külföldön élő magyarok életét mutatja be. A korábban bemutatott két részt (New York, London) részben közösségi finanszírozásból, egyéni felajánlásokból finanszíroztuk, illetve, mi is beletettük a saját részünket. Úgy gondoljuk és a visszajelzések is azt igazolják, hogy olyan témát dolgozunk fel, amely korunk egyik legégetőbb társadalmi jelensége. A New York-i és a londoni filmeket több százezren láttátok, ingyenesen elérhetőek az interneten. Jelenleg épp egy holland epizódon dolgozunk. Már eddig is sok munkát fektettünk a forgatásba, a film vágásához és utómunkájához viszont a segítségeteket kérjük, mert máshogy nem tudjuk befejezni. Ha összegyűlik a pénz, a 6000 euró, ami az utómunkához (vágás, hangmérnöki munka) szükséges, hamarosan együtt örülhetünk egy újabb epizódnak. Bízunk benne, hogy nem lesz gond ezzel. A felajánlásokért cserébe ráadásul értékes ajándékokat adunk, amelyeket a film támogatói a BikeBorn, a Tisza Cipő, a BlaBlaCar, az aMaze, a MadebyNagyi és a masculan ajánlottak fel nagylelkűen.

Ha nem gyűlne össze a 6000 eurós célösszeg, akkor mindenki visszakapja a felajánlott összeget, mi pedig elgondolkodunk, van-e értelme folytatni így a filmezést. Erre gondolni sem merünk és bízunk benne, hogy nem lesz gond. Ha több pénz gyűlne össze, amire inkább számítunk, akkor minden 6000 euró feletti részt a további, szintén gyártásban lévő, de anyagi nehézségekkel küszködő berlini és hazaköltözős epizódokban fektetünk. Ezekkel kapcsolatban figyeljétek a híreket!

Kérünk, támogassátok a filmet akár a legkisebb hozzájárulással, illetve, osszátok meg minél több helyen a közösségi médiában, az ismerőseitek körében!

A film trailere feljebb, a felajánlásokért cserébe adott ajándékok lejjebb görgetve tekinthetők meg!

Hála és köszönet! — az alkotók

Dear Backer!

The new episode of the acclaimed (Erasmus EuroMedia Award 2014 - Highlights of Hungary 2013) documentary series Menjek/Maradjak (www.menjekmaradjak.hu) was shot in the Netherlands. This chapter keeps the best parts of the previous episodes with a twist that the director himself is a Hungarian who lives far from his homeland. During the production we worked with American/Dutch/Hungarian cameramen in order to create a visual language which communicates without words. Our short documentary is an attempt to see how can we talk about the topic of "new mobility" in a fresh way.

We shot in the cities of Amsterdam/Utrecht/The Hague /Rotterdam since the megalopolis Randstad where these cities are situated is one of the most populated area in the world.  We share the land but how do we share our feelings about who we are? This movie is not "only" about how to be a Hungarian abroad. It is about us, humans, living in the 21st century.

With your support we promise to show unbiased, deep and edifying stories in an uncompromising and elegant way. 

During our campaign this site will be more than just a usual kickstarter site,we will frequently update how the project was made, and you can also follow our official Instagram site (@mmhollandia) for exclusive contents.

Risks and challenges

As we mentioned in the promotional video we are collecting money to fund the post production of the film. This is an all-or-nothing case, so, we only take your money and you only get the reward, if all the 6000 euro is contributed, if not, which will hopefully not happen, you get your money back.

In case, there is more money collected, we will spend the surplus on the oncoming Berlin and Homecoming episodes.
