The true story of a band trapped in another dimension.

The project

What is EMOCEAN, you ask?

 

THE FILM: EMOCEAN is the debut experimental sci-fi music film by Berlin based band Fenster. Written, directed, edited, co-produced, starring and co-shot by the band (with some help from an amazing team of course) and accompanied by a full motion picture soundtrack by the band.

 

The film starts out as a documentary about the band struggling to finish their third record when they accidentally get transported into an alternate dimension. In this surreal and disorienting landscape, nothing is what it seems. The band is forced to confront their paradoxical surroundings and somehow make sense of the absurd in order to find their way back to the reality they have come to think of as "real". But what is real?

THE ALBUM:

EMOCEAN was originally conceived as a conceptual soundtrack before the film’s actual production and evolved into the most ambitious project the band has ever ventured to try. It will be officially released on Morr Music on September 4th, 2015.

WHO IS FENSTER?

 

 

Fenster_clouds-1432740465-1435591093

 

Fenster is a psychedelic pop band based in Berlin Germany. From left to right: Will Samson (UK),  Jonathan Jarzyna (GER/PL), JJ Weihl (USA) and Lucas Ufo (FR). They have released two albums on Morr music, Bones (2012) and The Pink Caves (2014) and toured all over the US, in the UK and in over 15 countries around Europe. 

 

Once the project is finished WITH YOUR HELP, the band intends to tour with the film and play the soundtrack live, transforming the experience of classic silent cinema into a fantastical “cine-tour” journey headed for the unknown.

 

Why fund it?

WE HAVE COME TO THE END OF OUR RESOURCES.

 

We have come pretty far on our own. With a year of planning, over a month of shooting on 2.831 kilometers worth of VHS tape, a cast and crew of over a 100 people, dozens of locations, the rental of an entire island for a day, drone cameras, a self-built green screen studio, and countless hours of hard work and not sleeping, the project has brought us and our team to the edge of madness and what we thought was humanly possible.

 

We have spent all of the bands savings and then some on making this happen so far, but we still have a long way to go!!! That means - shooting the final scenes of the movie, all the post production and bringing this project to the rest of the world by entering it in festivals and taking it on the road with a complicated technical set up!

 

The only way for us to finish this project that so many people have worked so hard on, IS WITH YOUR HELP!

 

Our goal of 8000 Euros is the BARE MINIMUM to cover the remaining costs of the film BUT it will in no way cover all of the costs.

 

So if we can raise 200% of our goal, we'll not only be able to finish editing the movie and bring it to completion, we'll have the opportunity to promote it, tour with it, apply to festivals, and actually bring this weird little baby out into the world!!!

 

NONE OF THIS WOULD BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT YOUR HELP!!! THANKS FOR WATCHING+READING+DONATING

 

EMOCEAN PREMIERE + ALBUM RELEASE CONCERT: AUGUST 26th, 2015 at Berghain

BUT WE CAN'T GET THERE WITHOUT YOUR HELP!!!

 

LOVE

 

Fenster
