For those of you who believe that you have a great film on your hands,
but are not happy with the rough cut.

How

Send a simple application to us.

Ideally, we would get your application 10 days before you need our feedback. But we understand if sometimes you need it “now-now”.

 


In the application we need: 

  • A short description (synopses, treatment) of the project
  • The approximate date when the rough cut will be ready for feedback.
  • Who is financing or supporting the film.
  • A list of the director’s previous films and a short cv
  • A scene from the rough cut, five minutes maximum length – NO TRAILERS
  • A list of the scenes in the rough cut.

Once your application is accepted you will be informed, which one of us will be working with you.
Send your rough cut to us via an FTP server or by Vimeo/Dropbox/We transfer by the time agreed.
It has to be downloadable.

What

We want to support you to reach the film you want to do.

Two of us will screen the rough cut and after that:

 

  • you will get questions to clarify your goals, if there are additional materials, the target audience etc…
  • You will get written feedback : comments and proposals on the dramaturgy and structure of the film comments and proposals on the key scenes of the film comments and proposals on the possible narration, voice off/voice over, music, graphics etc..
  • You will have an intensive Skype discussion with one or both of your supporters.
  • You send the new rough cut.
  • you will get the final comments and proposals by one of the supporters. The professional supporters will dedicate a total of four working days to your project.
  • If you have made the application for six days work you will have additional Skype discussion/s and feedback to the next version/s of the film or/and we will work with some scenes or other aspects of the film more deeply.

Who

Most of us are editors. We are all used to working with rough cuts, through a wide variety of story-telling approaches.

We use the term “professional supporter” to underline the fact that we work to support the filmmaker to do the film the filmmaker wants to do, not to propose or force the filmmaker to do a film the professional supporter would like to do.

What does it cost?

The charge is 1800 euro. If you want to have two extra days the charge is 2600 euro.


If the financial situation of the film is very weak we can give you advice where you possibly could get support. Or you can apply to get the service with a minimal sum of 400 euro.

All of us have been working with films from very different cultures and countries. Knowing the financial situation of directors from Asia, Africa, Latin America and Middle East we are searching institutions, financiers and funds to support projects originated in those countries to use our services.
