This project evolved from a one day shoot to a three days shoot to a five days shoot to a 17 days shoot. What started as a little fun project between two old friends grew bigger and bigger and ended up being this massive one year long production that had to deal with loads of trouble, especially the global pandemic.
When Covid 19 hit Germany in March, we had to stop everything, pause the filming and hope for better days. Fortunately this forced break also gave us time to re-evaluate the dimensions of this project and also it’s possibilities. It gave us time to look for sponsors who were willing to carry the growing production costs but even more important: we were able to gather more and more artists and make them part of this passion project. The combination of people wanting to support us money- and manpower-wise gave the film the kickstart it needed to become what it is now. Through our sponsors, we were able to finance hotels, food, costume parts and SFX materials without going broke ourselves. Without our sponsors, none of this would’ve been possible and the production value would be a different one.
But even though there was money involved to cover costs – all of us were still in it for the art. More than 180 passionate artists from all over the world joined this project over the last months. We became a real team, even though some of us have only met through social media. This is the most incredible part for us – to work with a team that’s simply fueled by passion and by the love towards the project.
