The Greatland Seed&Spark Campaign

The other day I was contacted by Igor Darbo who informed me about a movie in post-production called Greatland that was directed by Dana Ziyasheva, and its Seed&Spark campaign; and I was asked if I would like to write about this upcoming movie, and my answer was yes.

What is it?

The upcoming movie Greatland.

Greatland – Official Teaser

What is it about?

Here are some descriptions of this movie by Seed&Spark:

“Trapped in a world of perpetual fun and interspecies love ruled by a universal Mother, a teenage boy crosses the forbidden frontier to save his childhood sweetheart and find out where he really came from, as an absurd election leads to chaos and violence.

A teenage love story in a dystopian future.”

Inclusion Statement:

“The writer-director is a bold young Asian woman from Kazakhstan.

Greatland cast and crew boasts artists and technicians from more than 10 different countries, 55% of women including a lead actress and 3 heads of department, as well as a prominently featured LGBTQ+ community.”

My Thoughts

After seeing the teaser trailer, it reminded me of a combination of a Vimeo Staff Pick short film, a more advertiser friendly Brandon Rogers video, maybe the animated television show Adventure Time, and the movie Idiocracy.

Based on the teaser trailer, this movie looks like it has potential to be a unique, creative, strange, colorful, and somewhat surreal movie.

I am curious to see the end result when this movie is released.

I am especially curious to see how the universal mother concept is handled because that is one idea that I have thought about if I were to make my own movie or short film one day.

Igor Darbo is listed as the producer for this movie, I would like to thank him for contacting me.

I have never been contacted about something like this before, so it was quite a surprise and honor.

They are trying to raise $20,000 for the post-production for this movie through the Seed&Spark campaign.

I hope that they will reach that goal (as of today, there are 16 days left for the campaign), and so check out that website and consider donating if you think that it is worth funding a creative project like this.

The end,
