“Crossing the sense” It’s a web-series of ten episodes that will end up being a feature film. The first 8 chapters will be published monthly, on-line and free. Later, a film will be edited with these 8 chapters and adding the two last ones, the outcome of the story. The film is going to tour festivals, cinemas and will be published in on-line platforms like filmin.
WHAT'S THE FILM? Synopsis
Alonso is a skater who goes across Spain with the skate as his only means of transport. The road will force him to cross with characters that will change his life and they will discover the reason why Alonso does this curious and strange trip.
Liberty, critique, comedy and drama in an entertaining story and with message. A plea to be happy, to go cross-current, to live your own life. Our intention isn’t give an answer if not to pose a question:
What happen if each of us decides to fulfil their dreams?
WHAT GENERE COMBINES? Mix of road movie and fake documentary
- The road movie is a film genre whose argument is developed along a journey. The metaphor of the journey with the culture of mobility and individual thought are combined.
- The fake documentary is presented as a real life recording, with the difference that is produced as a piece of fiction. One of the first examples is the radio version that created Orson Welles in “War of the Worlds”.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST? The chapters and the film
Each chapter: 8-12 minutes.
Film: 85-100 minutes.
WHERE WILL GO MY CONTRIBUTION? Table of expenses
We are working in an altruistic way, even so, we need an economic boost. As a film that runs throughout the Iberian Peninsula the essential production costs are fuel, food, lodging, camera and atrezzo.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE FILM? Calendar
HOW DID THE TEASER? Desert and cameras.
The scene you have seen as “promotional” is part of the story. We thought that the best way to make known our project was that you could see a little part of it. Although in the journey of Alonso represents places near to Albacete and/or Almansa, the location we chose was Zaragoza, similar in vegetation but more powerful visually. It was three days of shooting self-financed in the “Desierto de Los Monegros”.
