Why doing "Distopía: Argentia"

We needed to tell a story: with strong, empathic characters, in a visually rich and gorgeous environment. Steampunk genre is ideal for this. And we wanted to take all that into screen with the best possible quality.

And that's how this idea of making a steampunk web series was born, and we felt instantly in love with it! With this indiegogo campaign we dream of having this series made "Distopia: Argentia".

Distopía: Argentia tells the story of a now retired army official, Marshal Bandervere, who is called back to action in a war which he is now longer interested in participate. However, war sins from the past cannot be forgotten, carrying him to battlefield, with more than one surprise waiting for him.

Each one on this production team are very passionate about detail and quality, we love to be part of it and we want to give all of you the chance to be a part of it, too! You can do it byt helping us in many ways: from collaborating purchasing a perk, or even by spreading the word about this project in your social networks, and even in your real person conversations!

Episode 1 is already online, having made it with a lot of effort in front and behind cameras, and mainly by our supporters in our previous crowdfunding campaign. You can watch the complete Episode 1 here:

What we need and why it's important to contribute

We only got this campaign to turn this idea into a 6 episodes, each of them 10 -15 minutes aprox. in a very budget friendly campaign

CREW: Even with most of our crew members and cast working for free (they are really putting their hearts on this) we still need to pay a few of them, like sound editing or main theme music; we'll try to achieve the best with the funds we get!.

PRODUCTION - Camera, sound & lighting equipment, outfits hire, props and make up kits.

LOCATIONS - Including homes, land and even museum owners that need some financial incentive to allow us to take over their place for filming during extended periods of filming.

POST PRODUCTION - We'll need more hands that we already have on working on all the VFX needed to achieve what we have in mind. This is a strong VFX-rely on series so we'll use some of our budget to hire professional VFX editors to help us.

CATERING - A good meal is the least we can provide to this heart-rewarding crew we have!

That's why we created this campaign in platform, to make it possible to afford all the production costs in making Episode 2 of this webseries. If we even get above our initial goal, we could even afford a better Visual FX postproduction, and make it possible for us to face Festival Submission Fees, and promotional costs!

What you get!

We feel really confident about the project, but we can't do it alone! That's why we need your help to make this happen. No matter the amount, your contribution will always make a difference. Because of that we designed a really tempting set of perks for you to choose, on the right side of this screen; I'm sure you'll be irresistible tempted to take at least one of them ;)

The Impact

Sci-fi is already a not so common genre to cover when filming a web series; if we add to it that the sub-genre is Steampunk related, then the resulting group narrows, and if wee add that it's a Latin-american based production then you are having almost a one if a billion project in your computer screen right now.

All of us involved in Distopia are very compromised on fill the actual lack of sci-fi/steampunk content that currently happens in the web series world. We are sure there is a demanding audience that wants something original that might stand out from the usual "star trek" related content; that will bring the old epoch environment and costumes related series to have a new vital breath of air in the web series ecosystem. We are commited to have this done in a way that will surely compete in festivals, and perhaps even be turned into a high-production series from one of the main network in our country, if possible.

Who we are

As stated before, we are PASSIONATE about media making, and about steampunk! But in case you want to know more about us read below:

Guillermo Tellechea (Director, Writer, Producer, VFX Editor)

Guillermo is and independent filmmaker with a lot of experience in the media industry, working in the edition of several advertisements spots (for Hallmark Channel, Studio Universal, Discovery Channel), in the realization of tv shows and creator of short films and documentaries ("Asunto Pendiente", "Dia Cero", "Caballero del Mar"). Distopia Saga is his latest creative venture.

Martín 'Mac' Cruz ("Phineas Bandervere", Writer, Producer, FX artist)

Mac is an electronic engineer and inventor; also a professional paintball competitor. At the same time he works in weapons' replicas craftsmanship, miniatures, and props for several clients. He's the arquitecht of this project and together with Guillermo Tellechea are the main gear that brings to life the world of Distopía Saga.

Risks and Challenges

With such a low budget, we'll try to use it on the most needed areas of the project. Specially, on the props and location related costs ( as the cast will already give their best just for fame & glory ;) ), however we already achieved a very decent level of props and costumes for the trailer, so at least we have the same production level as in that video. To reach the goal of this campaign will be vital to enhance the VFX even more, as this is an areas where we need to hire extra hands in order to reach the quality and delivery timeframes we want for the Episode 2.
