About this project
"It's Your Turn To Become A God"
Imagine a life in which you work for eight hours a day, not for money but to obtain TIME… TIME to “spend” within a parallel virtual world in which you can live the life that you have always wanted and dreamed of. The Personalife technology gives man unlimited power and the freedom to decide who he is and which experiences he will live without fear or limitation.
Can mankind be responsible with such a powerful techonology?
To summarize greatly, it is a story that deals with a hypothetical future world divided into two extremely different communities whose destinies seem they should never intertwine. Eden is a society that lives in harmony with nature and makes living in the moment a focal point of its existence. In contrast, Equilibrium is a extremely technological society living in a hectic but precisely controlled way under the Sentech (a new social class made up of experts in the different fields of technology). Equilibrium is founded on the design of a behavioral society whose CEO is manifested as William Flames.
The citizens of the city don’t work for money like today, but rather accumulate time to be spent in Personalife: the most powerful technology ever created, allowing those who use it to live in a virtual reality in which every person can attain their utmost dreams without the limitations of money or space. The citizens of Equilibrium have all of this and the freedom to share their fantastic experiences with each other.
We, with your support, want to let everyone know the story of Personalife and, above all, it’s message of hope for a better mankind.
What is the final product?
We intend to create a fully illustrated book of approximately 80 pages containing the story, original artwork, and an expansion into the world of Personalife with elaborations on aspects such as techonology, religion, character, and much more. Nearly every other page will consist of a full color illustration accompanied by the different chapters, presented as recorded memories, of the story. Over twenty full color illustrations will accompany the different chapters, presented as memories, of the story.
Both the quality and presentation of the Artbook are of utmost importance to us. Your help is extremely valuable in accomplishing our goal and, if we succeed, our dream is to present the final Art Book to cinematic producers with the hopes of turning our vision into a feature film.
EDEN VS EQUILIBRIUM
Man’s advance, which seemed unstoppable, was ultimately derailed by the blind certainty of its supremacy, and, at a certain point, was dramatically interrupted giving birth to the worldwide phenomenon named the Fall.
Now the world is divided into new communities, each painstakingly trying to recover the path to new and genuine progress.
The story takes place in two of these new communities, diametrically opposed to one another: Eden and Equilibrium.
By clicking on the images below, you can see videos presenting their respective ways of interpreting life: technological progress without limit versus spiritual evolution through introspective growth.
All the rewards, Artbook included, will be available in both English and Italian. Should our goal be reached, it will be necessary to confirm by email which language you prefer to receive.
Thank you for the support!
ABOUT THE TEAM:
We are two brothers who have always loved to share every aspect of our lives with each other. Our mutual passion for cinema, videogames, and for human creativity has led my brother, Federico, and I down different paths. I have focused on trying to understand man in a spiritual sense, specifically the search for meaning and purpose in the evolution of one’s own life. Federico has undertaken technical studies in the field of cinematography, specializing in directing, editing, and in cutting-edge technologies. Our dream is to be able to unite our knowledge and passions to work side by side every day on projects that both excite and make people dream. Personalife is the culmination of three years of work and, should it be financed, will be our first joint project brought into reality.
In these years of preparation, we have met many fantastic people that have helped and supported us.
A special thanks goes to Victor Togliani the renowned Italian artist and creator of numerous works used in the fields of publication, cinematography, and literature. Thanks to his invaluable collaboration, the ArtBook will be illustrated with many drawings conceived and created by he himself.
A big thanks must also be given to our friend and musician and friend Enrico Guzzoni who composed the Personalife Soundtrack available as a reward for this project.
Although we are Italian, our goal is to share Personalife story with the rest of the world by publishing it in English. Christpher Kurz has helped with the translation of the story.
We would like to make a final thanks to KICKSTARTER and to all of you who lend us your support both financial and by spreading the word of Personalife. This project is only possible with your help.

The Personalife story is told through many characters that make the story both captivating and rich with emotions. There is internal conflict over differing ways of life, love found and lost, and the never ending struggle for power.

Risks and challenges
We really don't want to keep anyone waiting and as such we'll work as hard as we can to deliver on time. That said, the promised quality of the book is our top priority and none will be shipped before we can be sure you will be proud to hold it, read it, and have it as a part of your prized book collection. Small delays could be possible in the case that Togliani, the artist, requires more time than originally estimated in finishing the final illustrations.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
