What is the essence of the project?
“Flaneur” is an experimental project designed to test our theoretical ideas. The main goal of the project is to attract an audience in the process of moviemaking. Now cinema is represented by a monologue of the author. It has always been an elitist form of art, which required a lot of money and special equipment, not to mention the technical skills. For the author was very difficult to reach the audience before the high-speed Internet and social networks appeared. Cinema, television, license and huge budgets. However, this step is passed. Now is time for the audience to get involved in the movie, the time for a new cinematic language!
Each of us can take part in that! The time for dialogue is coming!
What to do?
To take part in the project you need to make a short video-statement. The theme of that statement is “the road”. For us “Flaneur” is a person, who experiencing an incredible desire to move, to go ahead, to see, to live. Everything was for him a road.
"To be away from home and yet to feel oneself everywhere at home;
To see the world, to be at the centre of the world,
And yet to remain hidden from the world—impartial nature.
The spectator is a prince who everywhere rejoices in his incognito.
The lover of life makes the whole world his family."
How your video should look like?
We do not care about the technical side of your video. For us is important your “Statement”. This is what you want to say, is an incredible desire to move with which you cannot handle, is an emotion and feeling that born in you when you travel. Care little about literal perception of the road. It is can be anything: a trip around the World, a way to your work, a short walk in the park, a daily routine. No matter what are you have under your feet and what surrounds you, the matter is how you perceive it, how you enjoy it (for example, you can watch the promotional video to deeply understand about what we are talking).
The big problem of our society is the low awareness. That is why a large part of our life eludes us. However, when you will go to the work next time just try to pay more attention to things that surround you. The road never repeats himself. Each time, here are new people and events, new smiles and dramas. That is exactly how we understand our road, our life.
What will happen?
We hope that you will have a lot of fun and joy when you will make your video. We are hoping that some of you will look at the world under a different point of view. And, on our part, we will make a movie with your participation and your statements. The movie, which will be unique for everyone. Just by two simple reasons:
It will wake your our feelings and memories.
The movie will be generated from your parts automatically. How will we do it? We will write more later :) You can subscribe us to see all our news and updates.
