Interested in Crowdfunding a 3D Movie?
Slovenian film director Rahela Jagric is launching a crowdfunding campaign for its next stereoscopic 3D movie "Patupaiarehe" through the IndieGogo platform. Rahela Jagric lives in New Zealand and is the author of "Coming Home", an award winning 2010 3D short movie presented in European film festivals a couple of years ago.
"Patupaiarehe" revolves around Cameron, a developer, whose company aims to dry out one of the few remaining wetland areas of New Zealand in order to build luxury houses. In a forest near the future construction site he encounters a Patupaiarehe, an elve-like woman from Maori-mythology, who sends him on a spiritual journey in which he sees the world through the eyes of the diverse fauna of the wetlands. This experience makes him understand the importance and beauty of this threatened environment. The theme of Patupaiarehe is the preservation of nature, particularly the New Zealand wetlands. This is explored through Cameron’s experience of losing touch with nature and thus with part of himself. Additionally, Patupaiarehe offers a tiny glimpse into the rich mythology of the Maori people.
