A film about paranoia, the conflict between your eagerness to rationalize and your capacity to imagine what is beyond.


The project

Why fund it?

Besides finishing my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Cinematography and Directing in Eicar this year, I have worked every week-end as a waiter in a restaurant (Buvette Gastrothèque in Paris) in order to finance my thesis film.


However, I need your help to complete the budget of "Horla". And being a horror/period short film, the project needs a good budget to reach a high level.




All the crowfunded money will go directly to pay the location:




However we will go much above 2000 euros considering the following elements:

- Rent a bus to transport the whole team as well as the equipment.

- Host and treat both my actors but also the technical crew with respect as most of them will be working for free and are like me students in my school.

- Build sets that create the fantastic universe of the story.

- Rent costumes from the French "Second Empire / Third Republic" eras.

- Create visual effects with make-up like in Japanese films. 

- Once the film is finished, to be able to send it to you my audience and also to many film festivals around the world.


Your support will also encourage the whole team to do their best for the film. We are about twenty people working on the project and among us are a dozen nationalities. Right below, you will see for yourself:


Production manager: Alexandra Naïm,  France

Writer / 1st Assistant director: Kyrylo Sopot, Ukraine

Casting director: Lauriane Groff, France

FAQ Questions about the project

+ When will I receive the perks I claimed?

All the claimed perks will be received but it will take time and some will be ready before the others. Check the delivery date written below each perk be sure. Otherwise, keep updated on the Facebook page.

+ What does this project mean to the cast and crew?

This film is important for us as it constitutes our demo reel for the cinema industry as we rarely use CVs. When the film will be finished, it will travel around the world in festivals and our hope is to be received in many of them so we earn more contacts.

+ Is that much money necessary for the project?

Making films is expensive. For instance, the location where we will shoot costs 2000 euros alone and it's a good price. Some locations asked me 4000 euros a day, as a student discount! It is indeed a big amount but you have to consider that the final result is a film that fits well on a cinema screen.

+ Can I upload the film to Facebook/Youtube or other social media websites when I receive the link?

Not straight away. While the film will be presented in festivals, it shouldn't be found on the internet. It is of the utmost importance that you do not upload it until the Facebook page will declare the film public.

However, in the meantime, you will receive a password to view the film on internet (on Vimeo) and are most welcome to share that version with your friends and family.

+ I want to change for another perk

No problem. Just send a mail to horlaproject@gmail.com and specify your username, how much you gave and at what date and what perk you would like to have instead.

+ I don't understand how the perks work

No problem. You can either send me a mail to horlaproject@gmail.com and I will return to you with a solution or you can check on our facebook page for information.
