We want to create a film. A film where comic and reality melt together to form a unique story. A story about an anti-hero, who fights for what she loves - and against what she hates. You will follow ALEXA BLITZ: the female lead of our story.
Alexa is the leader of a gang of young outcasts who have taken it upon themselves to track down and punish criminals. The gang sees the current justice system as a failure, that's why they take the law into their own hands.
Every night Alexa dresses up using a snow-white wig, ice-blue contact lenses and flashy makeup to transform into her role as the judge over the scum of society.
But by daylight shes's a completly different person and in many aspects the opposite of her other personality. Her real name is Sasha Pavlov. She's a 20 year old young woman with russian descent and a fragile soul, that is still fighting with the demons of her past...
Follow Alexa trough the dirty streets of Berlin. Only you can bring this project to life!
Let's create a real and unique story! For our goal we need a hero with flaws, who makes mistakes. A human who has experienced the up´s and down´s of life. Like you have.
That´s why we created ALEXA. A young woman, who is not only strong but also kind and more human then other superheroes. There is no radioactive spider, which gave her the strength to fight - only her will and the conviction to make a difference.
Alexa is not alone. There are people around her, who give her the strength to move on when life is the hardest. Alexa's story is at its core a story of love. Her girlfriend Vanessa is the one holding her tight after a long hard night out in the streets. Only together are they strong enough to face the brutality of life.
The relationship between these two unique women will make a big part of the story. - But only if you help us to let this happen...
The final film will be about 90 minutes long and unite amazing live action passages with animated scenes in a unique comic book style.
For the film we need a special location. A big city with an international flare and a gritty atmosphere.
We chose Berlin, the capital of Germany. With it's dark corners and dirty streets it creates the atmosphere we want for the film.
[Although the story takes place in Germany, the main language of the movie will be English with most actors speaking with foreign accents.]
What unites us is our love for movies. Maybe you remember an idea you wanted to bring to life? An idea you couldn´t get out of your head ?
That´s the feeling that haunted me for about a year now. I'm Antoine Matuttis. A young filmmaker from Germany with the dream of bringing Alexa to life.
The screenplay for the film has been written by me. So far I have written and directed four short films. You can find them on my website: „antoinematuttis.com“.
I gathered a small passionate team around me. All of them are committed to make this film. We have professional actors, a talented composer for the soundtrack and a young camera man with a lot of expirience in the buisness to give us visual support. But we also have some newcomers, who are just as committed as the professionals.
Behind this project there is no financial interest. That´s why none of us are getting paid to work on this film. Nevertheless we need your help to cover the production costs.
Usually a film like this would cost a lot more, but we are trying our best to find creative solutions to the problems ahead of us.

& some other members, who are not featured in the photos
At the current state we have organized most of the crew members, actors and locations. We also have a finished screenplay and a clear plan. The remaining details will be taken care of in the following weeks until we start shooting by the end of september and end our shoot in october this year. Post production will take another year or so, as we are trying to unleash the full potential of the movie.
To make this film happen, we need money to pay for insurance, transportation, shooting permits, accommodation, costume & makeup, equipment, catering, marketing materials and so on...
We are trying to keep costs as low as possible! For example: Most of the team members are either from Berlin or are staying with other crew members there to keep the costs for accommodation as low as possible.
But the 11.872€ we are trying to raise is just the money we absolutely need to make the film. With more financial ressources comes more room for creativity and more time on set to improve our film!
Risks and challenges
With every film there are risks and challenges that one has to overcome.
In this case our biggest challenge will be to maintain good quality under the time pressure we are going to face on set. Another challenge will be to create an environment where everyone can give his/her best! But those are challenges we have experience with and are willing to deal with.
There are of course some risks with certain scenes, because they might not turn out as well as they seem on paper, due to limitations we might be facing on set or errors in the organization of the shoot. But those are things that are common with every film project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
