Equipo y material de rodaje
Material de grabación de imagen y sonido. Doxa producciones, para reducir costes en este apartado, ha aportado desde el mes de marzo y aporta de cara a terminar el rodaje en junio el material de rodaje del que dispone. Aún así, para cubrir la semana de rodaje del cortometraje de los niños (del 24 al 30 de mayo), nos hacen falta dos unidades de rodaje, por lo que debemos alquilar un segundo equipo de grabación de audio.
Billetes de tren, alquiler de un coche de producción y gasolina, para los desplazamientos de las cuatro personas que formamos el equipo de rodaje para las próximas 6 semanas de rodaje que nos permitan llegar de Madrid a Sevilla, y de ahí a Alcalá de Guadaíra, y movernos por el pueblo para no perder detalle de lo que los niños hacen.
EDICIÓN - PRIMERA FASE
La primera fase de edición de este proyecto ya ha comenzado, puesto que estamos acumulando bastante material y debemos adquirir discos duros de almacenaje, para poder ir sincronizando el audio con la imagen. Durante julio, agosto y septiembre seguiremos sincronizando, y nos tomaremos un tiempo para visionar y minutar al detalle todos los brutos, mientras seguimos buscando financiación. En octubre, tras realizar el rodaje del epílogo de la película en Alcalá, empezaremos la edición. Necesitamos al menos 5000 euros de presupuesto para afrontar esta fase, pero con arrancar nos vale, porque confiamos en conseguir más fuentes de financiación.
RODAJE - EPÍLOGO
Rodaremos el epílogo de la película en septiembre, cuando empiece el nuevo curso.
EDICIÓN - SEGUNDA FASE
La segunda fase de la edición comenzará en octubre de 2013.

This experiment of social and cultural innovation consists of recording the shooting of a film. The film is an archive of footage of how a short film is produced and directed by the students of 5th grade of Primary, between 10 and 11 years of age who attend San Mateo de Alcalá de Guadaíra school. (Seville) Each year Samuel Márquez, a teacher at the school teaches his pupils a new language: audio-visual.
We know that schools teach many subjects, but where is cinema? Generally it’s relegated to the last pages of grammar books. Not only in primary school, but in Secondary school also. An explanation to how students leave secondary school without having watched Charlie Chaplin, without being able to narrate without words and without knowing who Ingrid Bergman is.
This teacher and a team of film makers have been teaching the children how to make a film since March. The children become the film crew and each of them have a role and assume full responsibility because the adults disappear off the map. They have to learn how to work in a team and to respect the work of each of the members of the team. They also need to understand that during this shooting process, like in any team work environment - like in life, everybody has to count equally: if one fails, we all fail.

Why this is important
Does it make sense during these hurtful times, to tell imaginary stories? Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to commit to reality, to make films that will help us understand this reality?
It would be appropriate to make films that would help us understand this reality but on the other hand we keep dreaming awake, talking to ourselves, falling in love, losing ourselves in fantasies of other lives not lived. It’s true that we live in the real world, but we all secretly keep other lives we would like to live. That’s why we need imaginary stories.
There is a teacher at the school that each year teaches his student to make cinema.
There is a producer, Ainhoa Andraka and a director, Lucina Gil, who wants to film this shooting, is at the same time filming a theatre show.
We are going to plan to do the making of the children’s shooting, watching through the keyhole what will not be seen. But we are going to play very seriously like children play. For us the “making of” the shooting is as important as the most costly productions. Even more, because this is our project and we feel involved and committed, like the children for their short film, like the teacher with his pupils. To play with seriousness and honesty - that’s it, nothing else.
Goals of the crowdfunding campaign
Our main objective is to find support to continue with the feature film documentary, 'Who is Ingrid Bergman?', directed by Lucina Gil and currently being shot in Alcala de Guadaira, Seville.
This project is looking to educate on values, experiences, new languages and communication tools. So that new generations will be able to build in this way a society where, as in the documentary, we are all part of the same team and each of us has a significant place where each of us is recognized and respected.
A project that we hope will be an example for further new projects of audio-visual literacy in Andalusia as well as throughout the rest of the country. For this, the files of the project will be available for the community as well as the team being open to possible collaborations or to answer any doubts or questions that might arise.
We are not just looking for economical collaborations, although these are necessary to carry on with the project, we are aware of the current situation in which cultural and educational industries are, hence why we appreciate any type of support and collaboration. What do you do? Or better said, what do you have to offer?
