What is it about?
Thanks to the thematic importance addressed, Outhouse doesn't want to be a simple short film, but much more. We all have needs. We all need to feel good, to escape from our routines; in one way or another. But what happens when this becomes a vicious circle, and we demand more and more to get better? We end up in the most
subtle trap: addiction to something. Inour case, we are dealing with drugs, substances that delude us to alleviate any pain, stunning and detaching ourselves from reality. It's sad because unfortunately, we end up looking for that loophole that isn't there, but that we want at all costs.
The story we intend to tell is reasoned so that it is possible to empathize more with those who are prey to their demons. Suffering, terror and realization will be the main steps of our story, a loop of agony that will serve our protagonist the consequences of his actions. Judging and pointing the finger is not our motivation; we are here to offer you to give us a hand for an ambitious awareness project.
Any contribution is welcome; it will allow us to create content full of responsibility because cinema is not just telling a story; it is to excite and enrich the soul of everyone.
How funds will be used
Our goal is at shooting in the best possible way.
To give the short film the right atmosphere, we need suitable locations, technical means suitable for quality work (reflectors, lights, microphones, special equipment and monitors), costumes and make-up for some special effects. Also, the funds will help us find actors and cover travel expenses.
The shooting date is near, and we are at work, but all this will only be possible thanks to your help.
Who's behind the project?
OutHouse is designed by a team of young artists, aged between 20 and 30 years old, united by a robust cinematographic background.
The project is supported in part by Metropolis Produzioni, a cultural production house based in Lucca (LU).
Matheo Heredia. Euphoric and original. He is a tornado of ideas, from the mostunpredictable to the most extravagant which, if considered in-depth, can be the turning point of the project.
Maria Chiara Isoppo. She is a good director and screenwriter. Her attention to social issues allowed her to design and write the short film and, thanks to her strong and decisive side, she added a horror note to the project.
Tommaso Mingoia. Reliable and determined. It is the element that gives the extra boost to the project. It is ambitious but above all, competitive. It demands the best from everyone even when the energies seem to be lacking.
Stefano Antonucci. Director of Photography. Careful, proactive, creative. A photographer with an enormous problem-solving ability always proposes a more or less complicated solution for each complex situation that is submitted to him. Challenges stimulate him, and for this reason, he is the ideal person to work with.
Joel Lorenzelli. Editor. His skills and speed make him a valuable member if it comes to working under pressure or in situations of high stress. The calm and patience that distinguish him give the ability to support the different styles and methods of the directors with which he has to interact, making the final product fluid and pleasant.
Gianluca Marzari. Post producer. Not negligible skills in post-production make him an indispensable joker, in times of need and beyond. He doesn't wait to be told what to do, but he studies make tests and prepare to be ready for any request, even the most complex. Thanks to his education and good manners, it is straightforward and pleasant to work with.
