|Types Engels thee winkeltje.
Afgelopen vrijdag kreeg ik een e-mailtje vanuit Engeland met een link naar de trailer van LEL 2013.
Het is een glimp van de film die ze aan het maken zijn over deze tocht in Engeland. Met echt Engelse typetjes, en geeft heel duidelijk de sfeer weer van zo’n tocht, de vergezichten, de vertwijfeling, de vermoeidheid, maar nog net niet de blijdschap van het behalen, maar het is dan ook een Trailer.
De bedoeling is om fondsen te werven om deze film gereed/af te maken voor de zomer 2015 om ermee naar film festivals te gaan.
Hieronder de link waarmee je de trailer kunt bekijken op de site waar het hele verhaal vanuit Engeland op staat.
At last, I’m very excited to say, that we have a trailer to share with you;
We’re looking to raise a bit more money to allow us to make the final push and get the film complete. As with all riders who participated in the film, we ask you please, do not feel obliged to make a monetary contribution. You’ll be invited personally to the premiere screening in East London next summer, and receive both a physical and a digital copy of the film free of charge. Your name will also appear in the credits, so really there’s nothing worth buying on the funding page! It’s been a long journey to get the film this far, and I think we’re sitting on something really special. It would be a shame to fall at the final hurdle.
In the summer of 2013 MadeGood.films followed six cyclists on a remarkable feat of endurance, that took them from the heart of London all the way along the length of Britain to Edinburgh, and back again in under five days. Travelling a little over 1400km, a distance many multiple times further than most of them had ever ridden before, the cyclists were not only tested physically, but faced a mental challenge that forced them to look inside and find resolve they never knew they had.
Following on from the award winning success of The Art of Repair, London Edinburgh London will be the most ambitious release from independent film company and social enterprise, MadeGood.films. Originally backed as the official film of London Edinburgh London Audax ride, the film was awarded seed funding from the organisers of the event. This money went part way to pay for the expenses incurred during the months of planning and filming stages of the production. Over the last 18 months the film has become a labour of love, as we’ve worked tirelessly to get it to a state that we are proud of and excited to show to a wider audience. Now that the majority of the film has been finalised and edited, we once again need to raise some more money to pay for services that will make the film complete.
This is your chance to become part of an amazing film, and for a limited time only we are pre-selling copies of the movie to pay for the following;
- An original score to be written for the film.
- A professional sound mix.
- A professional colour grade to our footage.
An original score is one of the most important aspects of the film for us, because we know how much it will help to convey the drama and emotional highs and lows of a cycling adventure like this; the freedom, the exhilaration, the exhaustion and the suffering.
We have been working on the film for almost 2 years. Before the event we interviewed our selected riders. During the event we split into two teams and followed our riders up and down the country capturing their individual trials and tribulations and the general spirit of the challenge.
We have invested hundreds of hours and a lot of money in this project and want to make it look and sound the best it possibly can. We want the film to do justice to the unique charm and epic beauty of the London Edinburgh London ride and with your help we can achieve this.
We have identified the people we want to work with and they have given their time to help us make our trailer. With your support we can get them working on the film with the aim of having it finished by summer 2015, when we will enter it in to film festivals and find a distributor.
