As a first step a movie production to promote a projected TV/internet series was scheduled. Officially a no/low budget project, the basic costs were covered by the mysterious Schwarzenstein Fund, located in Liechtenstein. The basic idea was to shoot a pilot movie of ridiculously epic proportions but, to avoid political influence and professional's biases, made only by and with enthusiastic amateurs and autodidacts.
Fact is, it was/is largely a magic ritual. But this fact was hidden until now.
In early summer 2010, Reicher and Vogeltanz gathered a highly motivated team of about 100 film entrepreneurs, amateurs and interested people of different professions and skills. 50 shooting days and 1,5 years of postproduction later, the demo pilot movie, PANTHERION – REALITY IS DEBATABLE, was ready for screening in the crucial year of change, 2012.
The completed movie should function as a kind of sketch or promo/demo to get production funding for a 100% professional version. To forestall the obvious question: It didn't work so far. Because nobody who could support and finance the project was able to understand why there was such a huge effort made just to show an amateur sketch of an unfinanced movie.
THE FILM PROJECT
"There's no war
We'd have to join
We're on the blank
Side of the coin"
