OFFICIAL WEB: THE CULT

ABOUT

We are Hannah and Díma, a Barcelona-based filmmakers family.


Today we are working on The Cult - the new animated sci-fi miniseries where we will tell the story of the great victory of the heart over the mind.

Very soon, and in fact, even now, humanity is facing the impending question: save our planet or try to start everything from scratch on another?

Most likely, the majority of our population will support the idea of ​​colonization even if it turns out to be disastrous for our planet.

The only argument favouring preserving life on Earth can be the hitherto mostly unexplored infinite potential of human consciousness.

But can a spiritual minority oppose enlightenment to progress?

We know that this story will fundamentally change people's minds.

We feel wholehearted that this series must be independent and have a voice far away from large industry.

This is exactly why we have decided to launch a crowdfunding campaign right here.

WHAT IS OUR PLAN?

Step One - Graphic Novel or Development

For the detailed development of the season, we will need to create concept arts and a storyboard.
These unique masterpieces usually disappear somewhere in the archives after filming. And no one remembers them anymore. But we want to give them a second life.

Therefore, we will produce a graphic novel first.



Our first goal is 12,000 €. This amount is enough to hire a 3D artist and a 2D illustrator to start creating the first volume.


3D artist build environments, props and characters in 3D software. Then Hannah blocks the scene, and Díma sets up the lights and adjusts the cameras.

Afterwards, we render images and necessary technical passes for the 2D artist, who draws over them in illustration package software.

To finish the novel (2 volumes) in total, we need 46,200 €.

Step Two - Art Village Setup or Pre-Production

We begin preparations for the series as soon as the first volume is ready. We will start producing props, sets, characters and costumes.

We want to achieve total immersion in the process, so we organise all pre-production and production in our friends' country house.


It is the best place to set up an independent studio, workshops and a filming pavilion.
We will publish weekly progress reports here, on our social networks and in our app.

Step Three - Production

Now we have everything we need: a script, a detailed storyboard, a shooting schedule, main and secondary characters, costumes, props, sets, camera, lights, a pavilion and a great crew.

And of course, with us your energy and support.

The most sacred period begins - we start shooting.

Stop-motion is not a quick process.

So we can do a lot of post-production in parallel with the filming process. The composer creates the music. A sound engineer works on synchronized noises. Colorists and VFX artists perfect every shot.

Step Four - Post-Production

Our series is almost ready. All that's left is the voiceover and final sound mixing.

We are sure that at this stage, The Cult will get enough attention from the producers, and we will be able to invite famous actors and musicians to do the voiceover.

PREMIERE

The long-awaited moment of the premiere arrives.

Undoubtedly, the leading streaming companies will be interested in buying the rights to the series.

Together, we will fill our series with great power and love that will change people's minds.

The world needs this kind of work.

With love & hug,
Hannah and Díma.
