about the project

For a student short film. 

Genre: comedy drama
Title: Going Going Gone
Main theme: family drama
Style: magical realism
Length: 10 minutes

Logline: Within the confined space of a family apartment, the parents engage in a peculiar exercise known as the ”paradox intervention”, leading to daily arguments at the same time. Meanwhile, their daughter seeks solace in her room through dance, transcending the chaos around her, until she finds herself repeatedly falling on the same spot. This moment of self-awareness unveils the possibility that she may not be alone in the room.

Motivation: ”Going, Going, Gone” aims to capture the intricacies of familial dynamics, focusing on the thin line between love and hate, co-existence of fun and danger. It is a visual observation of the absurdities embedded in everyday life within a destructive family setting, capturing the raw emotions, conflicts, and paradoxes inherent in familial relationships while mimicking the classical narrative of the haunted house.

Travel expenses are reimbursed and catering is available. Although the short has a student budget, we aim to provide compensation to the actors, depending on the proceeds from funding. 

One shooting day end of March/beginning of April + rehearsal.
