GERMAN TEXT DOWN BELOW! / DEUTSCHER TEXT WEITER UNTEN!

Let's make EPISODE 1 of the "Alexa Blitz" MINI-SERIES! (The whole series will have 6 episodes in total!)

Our series will be about Alexa Blitz - 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, which is why they take the law into their own hands.

The end result will be a mix between comic book and live-action elements melting together to form a unique story. 


Alexa Blitz - All it takes is conviction
Alexa Blitz - All it takes is conviction
Trough hell and back! / Durch die Hölle und zurück!
Trough hell and back! / Durch die Hölle und zurück!
At its core the story of Alexa is a story about love / Alexa's Geschichte ist im Kern eine Liebesgeschichte
At its core the story of Alexa is a story about love / Alexa's Geschichte ist im Kern eine Liebesgeschichte

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.

Alexa is a strong woman with no "real superpowers" other than her immense will to fight for justice - And her endless rage.

But by daylight Alexa is 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 dark streets of Berlin. Only you can bring this project to life! 

[Although the story takes place in Germany, the language of the show will be English with most actors speaking with foreign accents.]

Alexa is not alone. There are people around her, who give her the strength to move on when life gets though. 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.

Hi! I'm Antoine Matuttis - A young filmmaker from Germany with the dream of bringing "Alexa Blitz" to life.

The screenplay for the show 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. We are all committed to making this series!

Behind this project there is no financial interest. That´s why none of us are getting paid to work on this show. Nevertheless we need your help to cover the production costs. 

Usually a project like this would cost a lot more, but we are trying our best to find creative solutions to the problems ahead of us. 



Let's kick some a**
Let's kick some a**

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 story.

You can witness our journey in our exclusive Facebook-group that you can join by donating.

To make this series happen, we need money to pay for insurance, transportation, shooting permits, accommodation, costume & makeup, equipment, catering, marketing materials and so on...


What we need the money for: 

  • 600€ Insurance
  • 120€ Shooting permit Berlin
  • 700€ Catering 
  • 300€ Renting car in Berlin 
  • 400€ Train & bus tickets
  • 350€ accommodation 
  • 900€ Costume & Makeup 
  • 530€ Flashdrives to store the huge load of RAW-files of our film
  • 350€ marketing and press materials 
  • 600€ Rent for special equipment


+ Additional fees for Kickstarter, Credit Card transactions and taxes 


WITH YOUR HELP WE COULD EVEN TURN THE FIRST EPISODE INTO A WHOLE MOVIE WITH A RUNTIME OF ABOUT 90 MINUTES!

Risks and challenges

With every film/video 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/video project.
