About this project

“Life ... is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.” 
― William ShakespeareMacbeth

OUR STORY

Producer - Dasha Rubinshtein

Director - Gregoriani Marchello

We are a production team based in Kiev, Ukraine who work hard to deliver the most important thing in the world - beauty. Through tools like fashion, visual effects and immaculate composition, we want to create a modern interpretation of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" and showcase it at Miami Fashion Film Festival and Fashion Film Festival Milano in the summer of 2015. We have started working on the project in January 2015, and have several scenes shot (including the one in the preview, called "The Three Witches"), however due to an unstable political situation in Ukraine and the collapse of monetary system, we are unable to finish our project without the additional funding. We are hoping that the awesome Kickstarter community will help us reach our goal and create something that will leave the viewers speechless after the last second of our fashion story.  

You can watch one of our previous works that won a Grand Prix at the Fashion Move On Festival with ELLE Magazine here.

THE FILM

The idea of the story - the good and the evil as an integral part of every man's inner world. Streaking through the centuries "Macbeth" remains relevant at the present time. Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia, and he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler as he is forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of arrogance, madness, and death.

Main characters:

Macbeth - a general in the army, later - the King

Lady Macbeth - Macbeth's wife, and later Queen

Duncan - the original King

Macduff - Thane, murderer of Macbeth.

Three witches.

Extras:

28 extras - slaves; priest; magician; stunts.

Stage fights - stunt performers and extras from the movie The 300 Spartans. Here you can watch the rehearsal of the fights by the stunt performers.
Extras and female actors - professional fashion models signed by top agencies around the world.
Since this is a fashion project we will be working very closely with designers: Valery Kovalska, Matveeva, Jean Gritsfeldt, Frolov, LAKE, Denis Music

Risks and challenges

Time is our challenge since we want to finish by the deadline and submit our work to the festivals listed above. Post production can be time consuming. We are listing our project on Kickstarter for two weeks only, because we don't have a single day to waste. However, if we do not meet the deadlines the project will still be finished and ready, but we will look into other festivals to showcase our video.
