Proponent: Filmes de Infiltração DAO
NEAR account for payment: filmesdeinfiltracao.sputnik-dao.near
Project Timeline: JULY / AUGUST
Total Budget: 2000 USD | DAI
The main objective of this proposal was to do the post-production (editing, sound design, color correction, sound and visual effects, lettering/credits designer, mixing, translation, subtitles and so on to finish with the DCP) of the film A WOMAN WITHOUT ADDICTIONS SEEKS THE WOMAN WITH ADDICTIONS. However, with some changes in the funding schedule, we ended up focusing on another project with more workability.
In July the funds requested for NEAR PROTOCOL came at the end of the month, which delayed our calendar and also caused a scheduling problem for the participants of the project “A WOMAN WITHOUT ADDICTIONS SEEKS THE WOMAN WITH ADDICTIONS”.
While we already had a first cut and were waiting for those responsible for sound design, color correction, mixing and other crew to make the DCP, we decided to invest the funds in another short film: IMPÉRIO.
and no spoilers:
We opted for this film because this short-movie was way more simple to make. We needed a location, daylight, one afternoon and one well-executed sequence shot with a good camera and a great cinematographer, 3 performers that could stay standing their hole, the director to bring the gaze and the producer to control time schedule and so on.
The editing was much simpler than the film A WOMAN WITHOUT ADDICTIONS SEEKS THE WOMAN WITH ADDICTIONS (which has a lot of footage), and it would be up to the sound design to transform the tone of the film into something more comical, and it would be up to the person responsible for the film credits to direct us in the intentions of the film.
In addition IMPÉRIO has no dialogue, no need for translation and subtitling which made it much easier for us.
We also decided not to ask for funds in August and kept our focus on finishing IMPÉRIO, in paying the cast and crew of this short-film and to wait for September to ask for new funds. Then we can finish “A WOMAN WITHOUT ADDICTIONS SEEKS THE WOMAN WITH ADDICTIONS”.
To make IMPÉRIO (first of our films fully supported by NEAR) our budget was:
Director of Photography (with camera equipment) - theuba.near - 300 US
Performer 1 - rafaelrufolf.near - 150 US @rafaelrudolf
Performer 2 - gustavovinagre.near - 150 US @gustavovinagre
Performer 3 - wasem_simon.near - 150 US
Editor (with editing room) - thaisampr.near - 50 US
Music and Sound Designer (with sound editing room) - thaisampr.near - 200 US @thaisampr
Credits Designer - joaomarcosalmeida.near - 100 US
Director and Screenwriter - thaisampr.near - 100 US
Production and Sales agent (who will keep working on the project submitting to festivals and so on) - naralobo.near 400 US
DCP - 200 US
TOTAL: 1.700 US
We had 3 onboarding: theuba.near a great cinematographer and gustavovinagre.near a great film director both from Brazil, awarded and well known internationally. Who joined us as well is the photographer and producer denisefait.near. Also during this week we’ll show them how to flow in NEAR ecosystem and let them more autonomous with their movements around here.
About Festivals submissions
The film IMPÉRIO is ready and is already being sent to festivals.
Many film festivals have encouragement awards and cash prizes. In addition they give visibility to the film. This film is also part of a larger project THE WOMEN OF PAU-BRASIL that will gradually be presented to the community.
To make A WOMAN WITHOUT ADDITIONS SEEKS THE WOMAN WITH ADDITIONS so far our budget was:
Raw Cut (30min) - we’ll still keep on working on the editing to reduce the film’s length.
Editor (with editing room) - 200 US
Sound Editor (with sound editing room) - 100 US
Total budget: 300 US
note: still missing sound design, color correction, sound and visual effects, lettering/credits designer, mixing, translation, subtitles and so on to finalize with the DCP.
We would like to thank all the participants, cast and the crew of both films <3
