We made it! Thank YOU!
We hit our target! And more than that, we smashed straight through it and kept running! Thank you so much to everyone who has helped the angel to get here!
We have now funded all the costs of this last 9 days of filming. And we still have a little more time left for our campaign! So we’re releasing a stretch target to help us get further with the project.
We’re aiming to get to 6100€ by next Tuesday. This will go into the pot for the next vital thing: tour production. There’s not just the editing to be done now. There’s also the next layer of communication and connection: getting cinemas/theatre spaces/outdoor spaces to programme us!
We are planning a Berlin premiere for Autumn 2018, followed by a local kiez tour in Berlin (to small venues in all the local areas), as well as a tour to European festivals and UK venues in 2019. We’re also planning an exhibition of Alix Lucas’ photographs a little ahead of the premiere. If we can go up to 6100€ we can pay for a producer/administrator to help us with this crucial next step of application/negotiation/planning with spaces and festivals, so we can concentrate on the artistic side of the work.
Let’s keep pedalling a little longer to get the angel out to as many people as possible from Autumn 2018!
The Angel postcards - The "Angel&City" set
Filming Day 7 - the angel was playing with the architecture of the city today: with its stairways, pathways, its windows and reflections. With the cyclists flashing, pedestrians tramping and the trams rattling by. With its lines and shapes, with the longer rhythms and patterns of the city.
And that’s exactly what interested French illustrator Vincent Van Damme in his stunning triptych for the angel.
His painstaking lines show with precision details the surroundings of the city.
The contrast between black and white make the images breathtaking!
If you’re familiar with Berlin, perhaps you can guess where this first image is? We were filming there just today…
In this set of postcard, the angel is almost invisible, but even so, her spirit is taking over the whole image.
You can get this set of 3 postcards through our campaign, along with an exclusive sticker for 10€.
You can also get a digital copy of the artwork (high quality print), in A3, its original size.
The image is even more stunning, you’ll be able to see all the details of Vincent’s creations. One piece costs 75€, the whole triptyc 250€.
Our crowdfunding campaign reached 50%!
Great news! We are proud to announce you that our crowdfunding campaign reached more than 50% of our target goal! We are half the way to make this project come true. Thank for our the early supporter who already show that they believe in our project <3
The Angel postcards - Alix Lucas' photography
Before launching our crowdfunding campaign, we made an open call to artists, asking them to make their own creation with their own interpretation of the angel.
Here is a photographic set of postcards which show the Angel in different moods. It has been created by the french photographer Alix Lucas.
Alix is fascinated by architecture, and is always amazed by the way buildings connect with the inhabitants. This love for urban space is obvious in this postcard set.
The city becomes one of the main characters of the story.
Through her lens, she also captures a range of emotions of the Angel. Meditative or lonely, and even sometimes frightening..
You can get this set of 3 postcards on our crowdfunding platform, along with an exclusive sticker for 10€.
