In 2010, while living on a NH farm, 13-year-old Max Lalanne wrote, directed, acted in, and edited his 18-minute Sci-Fi short AWAKENING.
In late 2010, while living on a NH farm, 13-year-old Max Lalanne wrote, directed, acted in, and edited his 18-minute Sci-Fi film "AWAKENING". In April, he'll receive the prestigious Remi Award at the 44th WorldFest International Film Festival in Houston, TX for this film.
“becoming AWAKENING” is a documentary short film tracing Max's filmmaking steps and the 6 day WorldFest experience through the reward ceremony and his exchanges with other filmmakers.
While the award-winning AWAKENING is a story of isolation and forgiveness, about a lone boy waking up in an empty field, realizes he’s targeted by masked mercenaries while learning the hard truth about his real identity, “becoming AWAKENING” is about the making of AWAKENING, and its young filmmaker Max Lalanne's first-handed experience as a Remi recipient at the world-renown International Film Festival in between Aril 13-17, 2011.
Rewards for donations of $2500.00 and above will receive free all-inclusive VIP Platinum Festival Passes to attend the 44th WorldFest International Film Festival! (Value of $500.00 each), WorldFest-Houston is one of the most prestigious international film festivals and takes pride in having given first honors to Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ang Lee, Ridley Scott, The Coen Brothers, David Lynch, Brian De Palma, Oliver Stone, Peter Weir, Spike Lee and many more.
What will the money raised go toward? Every penny (minus the fees for Kickstarter’s involvement) will go directly to the “become AWAKENING” documentary budget, this includes cover the expenses of the documentary, travel and cost of crew to WorldFest-Houston, location, editing, color correction, sound mixing, securing music rights, and building a website for the film as well of location cost.
Donations will also help support our distribution to future film festivals. Upon finishing, we will also contact grade through high schools to see if we may screen become AWAKENING in the hope to inspire other youngsters to follow Max’s footsteps in exploring the 7th Art.
