Herman Film : The True Story Of Romania’s Most Effective Torture Machine In The Infamous Pitesti Experiment
The first feature film about the true story of Romania’s most effective torture machine in the infamous Pitesti Experiment is launching its fundraising campaign. The project team invites people who love cinematography, history and art to contribute for this independent film production: http://igg.me/at/HermanMovie/ .
“Herman – The man behind the terror” is telling the story of a promising young man who, under extreme circumstances, changed into Romania’s most effective torture machine in the infamous Pitesti Experiment during the Communist Regime. It is going to be the first movie about the Pitesti Experiment, about which Alexander Solzhenitsyn said to be “the most terrible act of barbarism in the modern world”!
The feature film is produced by a crew of twenty five young independent filmmakers, artists and professionals, which developed this project over the course of five years. The initiator of this project is Victoria Baltag, a young director and filmmaker. Victoria finished her MA in Film, History and Television at University of Birmingham, UK in 2011. In 2013 she won the Popular Prize Award at the LSE Research Festival with her documentary film ‘Faith and Flame’(http://www.lse.ac.uk/intranet/LSEServices/TLC/TLCPhD/LSEResearchFestival/archive/Research-Festival-2013/home.aspx). In 2014 the same movie was selected for the Sheffield International Documentary Film Festival videotheque. Victoria started the development stage of her feature film ‘Herman – The Man Behind the Terror’ in August 2014, after a dedicated archive documentation of 4 years.
‘We successfully ended up the development stage (all that includes documentation, script, cast, locations) and we are ready to continue our path with the feature film production. We need your support for this pre-final stage – to shoot the movie! Then we need to edit it and release it in the worldwide theaters! It is a story that must be known.’’ says Victoria Baltag, the director and producer of the movie.
The shot needs at least $35,000 and the budget is going to be spent on pre-production, production and post-production (fees for cast and crew, equipment renting, travel, accommodation and food for cast and crew, fights choreography, prosthetic and make-up, props, location renting, editing, special effects, festival fees, DCPs – digital cinema packages – for film festivals, consumables, digital storing, public space renting, car renting, festival submission fees, DCPs copies and tens of other costs involved in making a movie.
The fundraising campaign (http://igg.me/at/HermanMovie/) is launched on the biggest on-line fundraising platform in the World: Indiegogo.com and will be visible over 200 countries worldwide.
