Because there is little budget, crew members are not compensated for their work.
We are especially looking for a crew that is eager to learn and who feels a shared responsibility to practice what they want to get better at and to perform it to the best of their ability.
professionele productie / lowbudget
Last September 2022, the chess world was turned upside down. Chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen accused his opponent Hans Niemann of foul play. This was a topic of conversation around the world for months. Did he really cheat? and if so how did he do this? This was the reason for us to make a short film about it.
We follow Karl, Grandmaster in the chess world who has openly accused his colleague of foul play. But isn't he too quick with his conclusions, and how did he cheat? These are all questions that cannot be answered immediately, and if so, then by the 'cheater' himself. Niels, the player accused of foul play hears this and his world collapses.
When the media and the internet turn against him, there is only one thing left for him to do: 'Take matters into your own hands'
Because how can his vote win against the number 1 Chess Grandmaster in the world, who is also his great idol?
The crew is enthusiastic about chess and at first glance most people will think that it is not the most exciting sport. And so we want to take the viewer along and give them a glimpse into this world. When we saw the effect the media had on Magnus Carlssen's accusations against Hans Niemann, we were more than happy to make a film about it! Because nowadays the media and the internet have become indispensable in this world and we also want to make the viewer aware of the impact it can have.
