We’re working on an ambitious low-budget short film, that we believe due to our fresh approach has high potential on the international film festival circuit and are currently looking for the right 1st AD to join our production.
What’s Here’s My Card about?
This short film is a unique take on the heist film genre, during which we don’t see the heist taking place, but instead meet a male and female character right after the heist transpired. The scenes are completely dialogue-driven and occur mostly outside. This tense dynamic will propel the story forward, entertaining its audience with charm and wit while simultaneously subverting gender-role stereotypes in the modern world of dating.
What makes this project unique?
-It’s an original and genre-combining concept.
-The dialogue is highly stylised and unlike what audiences are used to seeing.
-It’s very fashion-centric, which garnishes strong marketing potential.
-This short film will be trend-heavy in terms of atmosphere and cinematic feeling. This is something that we feel happens less frequently in fiction than in other areas of filmmaking(specifically the commercial scene) and pop culture.

We’re going to submit it to the following festivals: Sundance, Berlin International Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Tribeca, Raindance, Slamdance, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Telluride Film Festival, Locarno International Film Festival, and Palm Springs International Film Festival amongst others.
NOWNESS is interested in giving the film its online premiere after its run on the film festival circuit has been completed.
We’d preferably film before the trees in Berlin lose all their leaves and are therefore leaning towards a couple of days around the weekend of 24th-26th of September.
