"La Dernière leçon" - short movie for collector.

If you had a look at our Patreon page you may have wondered what the $150 option actually meant. It says that each month we'll make an exclusive 5 min. video only for you and we'll send them to you as an exclusive, signed 1/1 edition DVD.

Well, we've just finished the first video for our Patron and we'd like to share with you our experience. To be honest, when we started Patreon this option was added as a kind of experiment (let's see what happens). We weren't expecting or hoping for anything.

And then we got the order. Our Patron was very specific about his ideas. He sent a pretty much full script with notes about the look of each character and location. It was quite a challenge, but as the story was appealing to us, we didn't need much time to translate our Patron's ideas into our vision. We shot the video at our friend's apartament and we asked our long time friend and one of the very first IF collaborators/actresses to play the female part. Because we prepared a storyboard before, the shoot was super fast. After few days of editing (the soundtrack was also exclusively made for this video), we sent our Patron the finished video. First as a video file, but soon he will also receive an exclusive, signed 1/1 edition DVD with the video and photo gallery. The video won't be published anywhere. It's for our Patron's eyes only. With you we can share the stills, to give you a taste what we can do with that budget.

You've probably never thought that you could own an IF video made just for you. An exclusive artwork. Not for that price. But I think we've proven once again that good quality films (no matter what genre) don't necessarily require big budgets and a long list of people involved.
