Campaign successfully funded on: 22 Mar,2016
My name is "Ramy El Gabry", Film Making shapes my my whole life. I spent my twenties learning and making it. Because I truly believe that the Cinema is best way to spread love, goodness and the beauty and from that stand I make my movies.
My movies won many awards in local and international film festivals. I was ranked as one of the best film makers in the world on 2012 during the participation in Filmak film festival with cooperation of Venice Film Festival and I won the competition by the global voting for my movie "This Time".
That's why I decided to use crowdfunding to support my movies especially after I funded my last movie "From Inside" by same way of funding, I'm thankful for your support which helped me to make my movie "From Inside" with the best available techniques and looking forward to do it again with you.
Like many others, I have dreams but I do not have the financial capabilities to achieve it. So when I knew about Zoomaal and its vital role I did not feel hesitant to put my dreams in their hands to make my last movie "From Inside".
Despite the fear and the feeling of failure to collect the money for funding, the results were fantastic and the support came from everywhere and more that 155 backers supported and helped me to collect 15000$ to make the movie.
The movie was made by the best cinematic techniques and my team was one of the best team in Cinema industry in Egypt, and thanks to your motivation and support that made this dream come true.
The movie "From Inside" won awards in several Film Festivals for example:
- Award for the Best Movie in Sawy Culturewheel Festival in Cairo.
- Special a ward in Chefchaouen Film Festival in Morocco.
- The film has been honored by the National Cinema Center in Cairo.
- The film nominated in Ajyal Youth Film Festival in Doha, Qatar.
- The film nominated in Sudan Film Festival.
The film is still in its festivals cycle around the world, and we shoot a song for the film to help it to be known and seen, the song to be broadcasted soon in social networks and also the song was dedicated by the talented singer Alaa Wardi.
In life where the speed becomes everything and every goal in life. Youth die and become victims of speed accidents. World Health Organization (WHO) issues several statistics that maybe shocking, (as it was for me) as following:
- Speed accidents are the ninth killer for humans.
- Speed accidents are the biggest killer for youth from age 15 - 29 years.
- 25% of injuries are fatal.
- Most of speed accidents victims are aging between 14 to 40 years.
- 1.24 million die every year because of speed accidents.
- About 20 to 50 million become paralyzed because of speed accidents.
- Every seven minutes a young man dies in Arab countries because of speed accidents.
- In Egypt, there are 131 die for every 100 KM.
- Egypt is one of the highest death and injury tolls because of the speed accidents with ratio 30%.
The Movie "Maximum Speed"
Choosing a story of a film is the most confusing step. But this story was different, because a lot of youth disappeared, they had their dreams and great ideas but all of the sudden, they are not with us anymore because of speed accidents.
When I read the statics about speed accidents. I did not feel hesitant to choose a story of movie will take us to the dreams of young man who was in the confrontation with this killer who has no mercy to see how speed changed his life forever.
The story will tell and visualize the reality of this young man and his dreams with colorful ,art and romance sequences, just to realize that speed cannot considered to be a goal in life!
Making movies cost a lot and definitely we know that, but the development of cinematic production tools things became easier and much more flexible.
So we developed the idea to produce the movie and make it with better quality and with less costs, all costs have been limited to be 4000$, and all items will be according to a detailed schedule time to make the movie as follow (The project will take forty days after receiving the funding):
- Preparation days =10 days.
- Decoration = 3 days.
- Shooting = 2 days (1 day in Cairo and another day in Fayoum).
- Editing = 2 days.
- VFX = 10 days.
- Music = 2 days.
- Mixing = 1 day.
- Color grading = 1 day.
- Copy = 2 days.
Many people may think that awareness campaigns is the best way to make a change, but I do not see that with all due to respect, because all of us have seen a movie which changed our point of view in life. Even religions were full of stories to help people to change.
So, what if we have the best way for art which is called "Cinema" and what if we intended to use it to make a better world that we deserve.So we intended to make the movie with the best available tools from colors and locations and every and each one will work in this project is the best in his career.
Because you are adult enough to help people to protect their lives and also to have a better attitude, all of that through art, which is the best thing in life, so you are responsible if you support our project or not, because no complaint without working to help the reality to be better, isn't it enough reason?
What are the benefits?
Although what we are doing is considered as a very symbolic thing, but it means a lot to those who believe in nobility, and later they will be proud of this project.

Why should this project become true?
My role as a film maker is to fight negativity and to show the beauty, that’s why I make movies, here is a verse from holy Quran says:
"that was why we wrote for the children of israel that who ever killed a soul, except for a soul slain, or for sedition in the earth, it should be considered as though he had killed all mankind; and that who ever saved it should be regarded as though he had saved all mankind. our messengers brought them proofs; then many of them thereafter commit excesses in the earth"
And it is the aim of the movie to have a strong effect on youth to make them protect their lives from speed accidents, so how many people will this movie change their lives? And how many can we save them from accidents.
If you cannot be with us by your financial support, we ask you kindly to publish our idea and help us by sharing it through social networks, talk to your friends about my movie and help me to make movies for them.
There are no updates for this project yet.
