About this project

Royale Cassata is an old fashioned Kitsch restaurant, a music band is playing old love songs from the 40s. It is kind of a forgotten sad decadent place for lost nostalgic souls
It is a story about people and their dreams, frustrations, miseries, vices, sins, it is about redemption and Love..mmm....kinky Love maybe.

ME

I am Matias Zadicoff, I am 3D designer and animator passionated about characters, not only how they look, also how they behave. The body languaje is the most important thing that makes us different from each other, after all it´s all mind driven by impulses and reactions, and this is what my short film will be all about.
I have been working on this project from time to time for the last 10 years so far, but I couldn’t really go any further having just a little fraction of my days to work on it, so 2 years ago after a big personal crisis, I decided to quit all my freelance jobs mostly for tv ads, those jobs were not only consuming my time, but also killing my passion for art and filmmaking. I had forgotten that I chose animation because I wanted to create my own style and tell stories rather than selling products.

Ashley Conti and Carolina Goddard are my advisers for this project, They have wide experience in advertising and broadcasting, you can see Carolina´s own creations at www.carogoddard.com


The great thing about Kickstarter is that it gives me the opportunity to raise funds for my movie project but also support it with my other passion which is sculpting by giving statues of the characters as rewards for your support, here is the entire list of stuff:



You can also visit http://www.royalecassata.com/ for updates and to find other ways to donate.

My expectations are to keep producing this sort of stuff forever and maybe someday…. a Full length Feature Movie!

So, thank you so much for reading! and if you like the project, please share this video on Facebook, Twitter, spread the Word to the World! and please Donate!

Goodbye!

FAQ

  • I need around 14.000 USD to finish the movie initially, I have to pay the music production, music rights, hardware, software, mastering, festival fees, and basically afford my time to be able to work full time on this movie for the next 5-7 months, however I am asking for 17.000 usd because of the Kickstarter and Amazon 8-10% deductions if the campaign is succesfull and also because of the whole merchandise production that I am offering as rewards with shipping costs included worldwide.I have bigger plans for this project if everthing turns out even better, adding more characters and making the film longer, but for now I prefer to ask for the minimum amount I need to complete this first stage of production.

    Last updated:
  • If the project meets its goal in january 2012 then I will start producing all the rewads at the same time while I am stil making the movie which I plan to finish in May 2012, so I guess I will be sending the rewards in June 2012, to make it simple I included shipping cost in all the pledges.

    Last updated:
  • I am planning to send it to Film Festivals all over the world, This is a movie that I wanted to make since 10 years ago as something that I enjoy and want to share, but also try to generate new job opportunities more related with this kind of artistic and crafted projects rather than the regular tv ad.

    Last updated:
  • Kickstarter is All or Nothing, which means that if I don´t reach the base goal of 17k that I set up then you won´t be charged, if it does reaches the goal, then your pledge will be deducted from your account at the end of the project (27 january 2012)
