The movie has been shot and the crowd has lined up to voice its opinion: over 57,080€ of the 100,000€ goal has been raised by 109 Companists for the German urban comedy Wie Männer Über Frau Reden (How Men Talk About Women). German comedies tend to generate high revenues in German cinemas. Having already filmed, the next steps include the movie’s digital imaging, sound editing (post-production) and marketing. The campaign seeks to reach a larger audience through its Companisto crowdfunding campaign, aiming for a nationwide theatrical release.
The cast is lead by actor and Grimme award winner Oliver Korittke (Mann tut was Mann kann, Die Musterknaben), actor and multiple award winner Frederick Lau (Die Welle,Neue Vahr Süd, Deutscher Filmpreis, Deutscher Comedypreis, Grimme-Preis) Kida Ramadan (Kebab Connection, Knallhart, Tatort), Barnaby Metschurat (Solino, Anatomie 2, Bayerischer Filmpreis) and Ellenie Salvo Gonzalez (who starred in Vollidiot, a movie grossing 5M € in German cinemas). The filming with an experienced team was led by award-winning cinematographer Raphael Beinder (winner of Deutscher Kamerapreis 2008).
“As we have been planning, financing, implementing, and publishing movie projects for many years, we soon found investors in our own network. After two years of hard work with a professional team of 80 people, the movie has been edited completely and is almost ready for its theatrical launch in Germany,” according to the campaign. “We were able to come up with the production budget using our own capital and investments by several friends and long-term business partners. Both we producers and our network financed the movie using our private funds because we are all convinced that our movie will be successful. Ultimately, everyone will profit…Thus, the entire film project has been supported by a growing crowd of actors, team members, and investors from the very beginning.”
More detailed information about the team and financials is only available to those registered on Companisto. The campaign closes on 28 August.
