FIELDTRIP is a science fiction short movie about a man in a robotic spacesuit, who crashes in his own minefield and has to navigate through it. It is a dark comedy about the collaboration of man and machine.

Our idea came into existence 6 years ago when we started talking about creating a movie of our own, something that both of us liked, gritty 70s and 80s science fiction. Soeren had this idea of a man marooned in a spacesuit and after Paul took multiple pictures in Iceland we both decided that we had to continue our dream and make FIELDTRIP a reality. 

Over the course of 2 years we wrote a script, created all storyboards, build a spacesuit, props, and shot the first 4 minutes of FIELDTRIP. We did this on a minimal budget out of our own pockets and now we want to go to Iceland to shoot the rest of the movie (around 20min) release it online for free, and for this we need your help.

 

The Kickstarter money will be used for bringing a small crew of 7 for 1 week to Iceland, flights, accommodation, car rental, food and rental of professional film equipment. 

We also want to make a daily video diary, while shooting in Iceland, so you can follow every step of the process.

Iceland is a beautiful place and we want to keep it like that, we care about the environment and we want to make use of visual effects for explosions, fire and smoke. So Iceland can stay as beautiful as it is. While the project is ready to be executed we need the money for the crew to go to Iceland and bring our dream project FIELDTRIP to life.

We're confident we can make FIELDTRIP with the use of our experience in film making, Directing, Director of Photography, story boards, concept art and visual effects over the last 10/20 years. Please have a look at our IMDB profiles and websites for more.

No man should be left empty handed, so we put together a list of packages with rewards for each backer. From posters, badges, signed art illustrations, t-shirts as well as a lot of the original props used in the movie by our actors. For more rewards and options please look at the right side of the screen.

We want to finish FIELDTRIP and put it online for free for everybody to watch. We dream big and have stretch goals that unlock more rewards and expansions for our movie. One can only dream. Big.

FIELDTRIP is a very ambitious project but the good news is we have finished the script, the storyboards, most of the props, the spacesuit is build, the suitcases are packed and near the door. We hope you feel as excited as we are about FIELDTRIP and will join us bringing this epic story for the world to see!

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Fieldtrip is an extremely challenging project as we want to create a great story, high production value on a big scale but on a minimum budget. As it's quite ambitious, we rely on important external financial investments. We are an extremely high and motivated team as it shows in our past successful film careers that spans for 20 years.

We have already shot the first 4 minutes, edited it and done the VFX and only need to finish the sound. We will release the first 4 minutes as part of our campaign and as additional proof of concept from our existing video.

This project is extremely important to us, and we hope to use it as a stepping stone to produce full blown hollywood quality feature with that classic film making heart and soul.

As we are full time working professionals and human beings we are prone to external factors like everyone else which can cause delays. In the unlikely event that such a thing would happen, we want to reassure our backers that we will stop at nothing to make our dream project a reality.

Should we exceed our goal, everything will go into the production and release stretch goals.
