Powerhouse jazz for a new generation:  Médéric Collignon has been causing shockwaves in jazz and contemporary music for some years now. He represents a rare species in music; movements usually get only one, maybe two a generation. They put an end to iteration and invent new music made out of desire and histories. "Médo (S)" will be an offbeat documentary about  this musical phenomenon, a true portrait of the irreverend and generous character who in the scope of the shootings became a central figure in the international jazz scene and a respected Jazzman.

 

The film project meanwhile evolved into an artistic encounter mediated by trust, complicity and a constant desire to challenge and test all possibilities. To give the maximum every second, every beat and also accept mistakes for a better bounce. Médéric Collignon’s musical art remained a bastion of the unpredictable, unspecific and ephemeral: risky business. The documentary « Médo (S) » in response became an experiment on time and freedom, a "work in progress" necessarily partial and subjective, Médéric is now greatly sought, he shakes opinions, raises eyebrows, indisputably deranges. Hate it or love it; the beat goes off.

Allocation of funds

The shooting took place between 2006 and 2011. Alltogether over 200 hours of rushes, many concerts, interviews on the go, performances, impro’s and talks. Médéric is like a diamond: a hard core with multiple facets, piercing and capable of scratching any surface. The documentary "Médo (S)", captures this rough polished Superman at his multiple facets.

 

Coralie van Rietschoten, my editor and me, Josselin Carre, mounted a rough cut of over 4 hours by the end of 2011. We also made a teaser of 5 min, to show the rythm and  athmo. Our partner, Oléo films started prospecting in spring 2012. They vanted an amazing cast, unusual images and sequences gleaned from the first days of shooting in Munich, via Marciac to the heights of Belleville in Paris, and presented the film as a road movie of a special kind. 

 

We therefore start this fund raising campaign to cover extra cost for post-production and a new distribution campaign. Our aim is to break chronology and stay close to the perfomance experience. We will screen the film in public at festivals, jazz venues and in the associative circuit. The film will be elevated from TV to big screen quality. And we will have to remix the content to make it into a feature film! Image editing will take three weeks and sound editing and mixing another two weeks time, not forgetting calibration, estimated at 3 days. Since part of this is external lab work it must be payed in advance. By participating in this campaign, you can help us to get going again and be part of the experiment. Screening is planned from November 2013.

 

Budget Allocations (The money raised will be used for stipends, rentals and technical services):

 

Post production Imagery : 1600 Euros

Post production Lab 2012 : 700 Euros

Post production Sound : 1200 Euros

Stipend Mixing Editor : 800 Euros Calibration : 600 Euros

PR and Communication : 250 Euros

Distribution Budget : 850 Euros

Banking Fundraising Fee : 840 Euros

And if by chance we raise above 100%, we can:

pay for French / English subtitles,

order DVD and Covers at confliktarts.com,

make a DCP for screenings

Organise a premiere with a concert for you all.
