Project description

Thumb portada 1 carmen el corto 4 01


Art, Love, Fears, Depression, Dreams, Brave. Carmen is a shortfilm based on the rom-com genre, made by students of
Universidad Latina de Panamá and Universidad Nacional de Panamá, with the support of colaborators who had previous 
experience.

We are in a stage of formation on the cinematography specialties making this project with totally voluntary
colaborations and without any monetary profit; this is why we have commited to this project with the only satisfaction
of the realization experience on the cinematographic activity on Panama

We are engaged to this project as a fundamental part of our preparation as future professionals on the area.
That's why we have as an objective to motivate the young people to dare and make films and show the posibility
of making this activity in Panama through our work's final result, and towards that we incentivate the 
potential of the cinematographic activity for culture, education and economy in the country. This is the reason 
we are not looking for economic profic as a primary thing but voluntary colaborations.

Carmen is a shortfilm that looks forward to awake those people who doubt from their own goals and dreams, reflecting
the main character in this conflict and taking her to the posibility of getting over her fear to failiure and
above all, being happy with what she does; brings the importance of creating and keeping really good friendships
because they become the primary support before complicated situations. It also makes a critic to the modern Art,
towards the tecniques and how the true feeling stopped being value to make pieces that represent the shalowness of the post modern society, cold people, totally asleep and absent from the colorful reality.


How we will use collected funds

All who participate in this short film do it for the satisfaction of seeing this story developed, without any monetary remuneration. The money raised is used as follows:

$2,000.00 >>> Meals, refreshments and drinks for 24 people during two weeks of shooting.
$500.00 >>> Transfer of equipment, crew and actors during two weeks of filming.
$1,000.00 >>> Utility and decoration for 6 locations.
$500.00 >>> Payment of design and premiere 

Project history

Thumb carmen5  web


Carmen's story came to us through our own experiences, we were at that stage were we asked ourselves: 
Who am I? Who do I want to be? And at that constat debate inside our own self.

for us there's 2 ways to stare at life: At the bottom of the water well staring at the bottom or at the bottom 
of the water well looking up. Light and Darkness, which is  the intrinsec in the shortfilm.

As we were breaking through the idea, the characters were born naturally, but there was one that came to us abruptly, Gustavo,  who represents everything that Carmen fears, when we understood that Carmen is an artist  we wanted to  send a message  about modern art y then everything came by it self.
