I want to make this underground film and I need a little help to gather some money to pay for a space and for small rentals that I can’t convince people to help me out of revolutionary conviction or belief in our ideas and direction of film.

I feel from time to time the need to explain my projects, I feel that people will understand me better if I talk to them personally 🙂
Now I talk a little about our new space where I want to explore some of my ideas, in a owned space, no more running around asking people for borrowing theirs.
And also about our film project Obscur – a +18 film that so many people are afraid of. I try to ease their minds and suspicions.
We are looking for a small financial support to make Apologia, a poetic non-commercial film in Bucharest. These money are for food and gas for our 10 days of filming, plane tickets for our international cast and rent for 2 of our locations and sound post-production.
Apologia – A multidimensional, multi existential story, about a mystical togetherness that is somehow broken and people have broken pieces in one another.
Please help us with our 3rd feature film. Films that we don’t use as products. Thank you.
Until now we’ve raised from amazing friends – 430 Euros out of the 3500 we need to start.

or our affiliate stores – all you buy from there will reroute a small percentage to our fundraising.

Am scris CameraMica ca pe un scurt metraj, noua varianta a devenit o poveste mai acuta si mai complexa si pentru ca au intervenit povestile mai multor personaje si o dezvoltare a familiei Amaliei.
Las mai jos textul vechiului scenariu pe care se bazeaza cumva si cel nou.
Cavity or Amala’s Obsession
O papusa este disecata si in ea sint organe de om.
“Bucuresti the place of my nightmares.”
Amala si John se intorc in Bucuresti. Amala este romanca si s-a maritat cu John in Anglia si au si un copil mic. Amala revine in Romania pentru a-si vizita rudele cu micul ei copilas dar si pentru a incerca de al gasi pe Morven, marea marea ei dragoste de care s-a despartit foarte brusc si violent si din cauza careia a ramas cu niste foarte dureroase halucinatii si crize.
Vilho fratele ei mai mare si cu care are o relatie foarte intima dar si de ura reciproca ii spune ca Morven a murit.
La intilnirea cu parintii, o intilnire chinuita si falsa unde cu totii se chinuie sa fie normali desi nu pot. Unde tatal Amalei este un mare artist sculptor in adinca depresie care face mii si mii de pestisori de lemn de ani si ani de zile. Unde afla ca Om sora ei mai mare ii uraste pe toti si nu vrea sa ii mai vada. Amala lasa pe John si copilul acolo si pleaca pe neasteptatea.
Ajunge la blocul unde sta sora ei si desi Om ii spune si ea ca Morven este mort, si ca nu vrea sa o vada pe Amala. Amala se roaga de Om sa o lase sa stea la ea o vreme, cit il cauta pe Morven, fara sa stie nimeni. Aceasta accepta cu greu pentru ca Om este foarte chinuita in viata ei personala dar si a suferit mult la plecarea Amalei pentru ca Amala era cea mai buna si singura ei prietena in care se putea deschide si iubi complet.
Peste ele, in noapte apare Sinister, un partener al lui Vilho care ii spune Amalei ca defapt Morven traieste, dar ca si un mort. Sinister este trimit de Vilho pentru a o ajuta pe Amala sa treaca peste Morven, sa o ingrozeasca de cum a ajuns si cein a ajuns si sa se intoarca la familia ei. Continue reading
It all starts by looking down in deep waters and we see the title shining on the murky water. All of a sudden a white figure comes towards, us, towards the surface and comes out of the water. It is Jake. He swims to the shore where Gamma a little skinny girl is waiting. Jake comes out of the water but has no contact with Gamma, is like they are both unknown to eachother. And then we see trees moving in the wind, and big water flowing, and clouds and fog moving. In a dark room Otte is washing her paralyzed mother Imola. Near the bed on a simple chair there is the Professor, the confessor and adviser of Otte. The professor talks with Otte about living alone, and why it is impossible form Ottes body and mind. She wants to lose herself into another.
In the same night, in another part of town, Jake is working on 3 big monitors, at his research desk. Looking for something, trying to entangle an immense theoretical and scientific discovery. He thinks, he is bored, He works with passion. He lies on the floor. He throws papers away. In a dark corner of the room very quietly is Gamma. She ask Jake about why is she there, and they talk about the difference between object and vibrant presence. About a third existence.
Jake is sleeping and a computer message is waking him up and scares him. It is his friend Phil, also a scientist, that confirms him that his findings about a Global Magnetic Shift and thus physical laws in continuous change are correct. Phil invites Jake to come to their lab and work on it. Phil also confirms that the Shift is changing people’s behaviors and makes them weirder and more violent. Jake responds that he needs to save someone first, then he will go to them.
Jake goes to Otte’s home where she very hardly lets him in. She thought he was dead. She was just preparing herself something very raw and bloody thing to eat. He doesn’t want. They talk about their love for each other and how they keep it hidden. And how each one wants to become the other. Jake is let to stay only for one night. Continue reading
Apologia becomes more and more a multidimensional multi temporal multi existential story, about a mystical togetherness that is somehow broken and people have broken pieces in one another, and continuities and they remember themselves in others and become another and find being caught in changed times and bodies and minds.
Recently I have found out #Apologia to be an #existentialist project.
*a sense of disorientation and confusion in the face of an apparently meaningless or absurd world
*existence precedes essence
*man first of all exists, encounters himself, surges up in the world—and defines himself afterwards
*rationality as a mechanism humans use to counter their existential anxiety
