A music video project by Anita Beikpour & Marie Limkilde
We want to investigate how female desire is portrayed in our mainstream popculture. We feel that it is in need of a challenge, and we want to give it our point of view.
The musicvideo is the frame of our investigation because it has a strong voice in how females are portrayed in pop-culture. That is why we want to play within this format. We haven’t decided on the music yet, because we want to be open to whatever music, will tell the story in the most powerful way. This is not a video ordered by a band or a label, but a story we want to tell.
So - who are we? We are Anita Beikpour & Marie Limkilde, both studying documentary directing at The National Film School of Denmark. This is our collaboration outside of school. It is a project of pure passion and curiosity - which means we have no money and need your help! We have gathered a crew from the filmschool, actors from The National School of Performing Arts and are ready to shoot at the end of june.
All effects will be done analog on set. We have one of the most experienced stunt coordinators in Denmark on our team. He has done stunts for Susanne Bier and Thomas Vinterberg among others, and he will help us - but we need money to do these effects properly!
So what do we need ? The 5000 DKK that we pledge for will help us to make the effects look as realistic as possible.
1 bed - that we can customize. We need to cut it up and lift it to make the boy disappear.
3 identical mattresses that we can cut up to make the disappearance possible.
Bedsheets that we can destroy and cut up as well.
Basic props to dress the room. The money will help us dress it exactly as we want it - so the video will not have to compromise on looks.
Costumes - we need a special dress for the female lead to make the disappearance look believable.
We are shooting the video in the end of june 2015. The video is expected to be finished in september 2015.
We hope that you want to see our version of female desire as much as we do !
Risks and challenges
We are very ambitious with the looks of the video and the effects. It is important to us that the video has the high production value we know from major label music videos. But we have a strong and experienced crew around us, so with the last financial help we are confident to reach our goal.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
