The story of the project
“Gaia” is a short film about a young girl named Gaia in a fantasy land in the grips of a never-ending darkness. The time of her betrothal is fast approaching, but Gaia can’t commit to the life her family wants for her, as her heart is in the grips of a fiery passion with another. The eternal Sun.
How the funds will be used
“Gaia” is a low-budget fantasy film. The money will be going towards camera equipment, locations, catering for cast and crew as well as marketing and festival entry.
“Gaia” Utilises an impressive blend of animation and live-action, giving the film a 2.5D feel. This however can be overcome through good post-production. The only issue I foresee is blending Green Screen and Live-Action footage, the money will also go towards making this an easier task through enabling us to use more appropriate gear to allow for better continuity.
