Behind the Curtians-كواليس (Short Film)
A true story about unwanted Lebanese kid (Jad) who grow up in a family that abused him in every single way they could.
The film shows how much friendship sometimes could be more powerful than blood relations.
We see (Haytham) jad's friend being there for him all the way till they succeed together. As we notice at the end that Jad became a Famous Director Filming his Story.
This Film shed the light on many different situations that are happening in our society and that are forced to be hidden from the public or media under the coverage of norms or religion.
- AUST Senior Project Short Film
Behind the Curtians-كواليس is a professional film project that will simulate the steps necessary for developing a feature film while including mentorship and instruction from industry professionals. It will provide valuable hands-on experience as well as a short-film feature with a level of quality that film festival competitions across the nation would be honored to have submitted.
As an independent-study project, Behind the Curtians-كواليسis an educational experience that goes beyond the typical class structure.
•To gather a crew of dedicated people who can be placed in roles of interest and roles allowing for opportunities to excel.
•To simulate the form of a professional film set and reflect these traits in as many disciplines as possible. (ie. schedules, rules, pre-production/production/post-production, budgets, fundraising and sponsorship, casting, etc.)
•To gain experience from professional level simulation.
•To create a final product in which the entire team can show pride and use as a “calling card” for job applications.
•To create a short length film that is of professional caliber that both its crew and AUST University will be proud to have entered into Film Festival competitions.
•To continue the legacy of film industry legends, by gleaning knowledge and observing current industry professionals.
AN INDEPENDENT SPONSOR-Based FILM:
Making a professional film is a team effort. It's both a lot of work and a lot of fun. We want to open the opportunity for many people to participate and enjoy the filmmaking process. With a zoomal campaign, that dream becomes possible. When you back the film, you are participating alongside others in a glorious adventure.
The Behind the Curtians-كواليس film has an estimated budget of $13,000. These funds will be used to heighten both the caliber of the film as well as offer the crew more opportunities for skill development. Every dollar will be carefully accounted for and tracked. Any budget remaining after the Behind the Curtians-كواليس film is complete will be used towards entry fees at film festivals.
None of the crew members are being compensated monetarily for their time on set. Rather, we are contributing to this project for the educational benefits of being a part of a professionally simulated production making a quality caliber project and the knowledge gleaned from the industry professional mentors.
No matter the amount, every single donation will be a step closer towards the success. The budget we are aiming for, will be divided in: we strongly believe that talent and creativity do not depend on religion, nationality or social class. The main reason we're giving birth to this project is to shed the light on child abuse in the arab world more.
