I'm Edwin Harb-Kadri, lebanese, 24, director of this here project, De-Generation. De-Generation is a 30 minute movie that takes place in modern day Beirut. We explore the underground weapons trade, while following Mickey and his Boss/Father figure, Nadim. The two of them hold control of the majority of the market in the country, but one event straight from the past will shake the grounds beneath their feet.
I'm starting this campaign to raise the funds needed to complete the movie, and that means : 1 scene to be shot in Paris, and most of the post production, sound design, colour grading, music, etc… My team and i have been working on developing this project, that wrapped filming 10 days ago, for the past 7 months, and with your contributions, we could reach the finish line !
What We Need & What You Get
We need 2 000 dollars to have the film ready to be viewed in festivals around the world. 1 last scene is going to be filmed in Paris, and most of the post-production, colour grading, editing, music, will be done for by Master Students at "La Femis" one of the top filmschools in Europe. The funds will go to the last scene, plane tickets, and day to day spending for the month spent in France. The funds will go specifically in paying for plane tickets to paris, funding the material necessary for the artist that will compose the music, securing the rights of the Jimmi Hendrix song that you can hear in the trailer, and paying for breakfast/lunch/dinner for the people who will be working on the post production, in this case : Editing, colour grading, sound design, as well as extra fees concerning the required material
I have posted a teaser trailer of the 90 per cent completed movie, that will give you a taste of the look and mood of the movie. My team and i have been working on this movie for the past 7 months, and everybody involved donated money: Actors, team members, familly, friends, producers, restaurants, etc... We still need to raise a small amount, and then send this film to festivals in the arab world, and the rest of the world, showing them that they have the wrong idea about the middle east, and it's youth .
