"REM" is a web series which came from the creative need of a theatre company/artistic group from Buenos Aires ("Media Res") to make the transition from stage to screen.
Media Res consists of actors, screenplay writers and screenwriters.
Why make a web series? We wanted to show our creativity and create something different for the on-line market. We´ve found ourselves a big challenge and now we need help to pay for lightning, transport, food, FX, supplies, art and sound so we can reach our goal.
During the beginning of 2013, Giuiliana Kiersz, Manuel Guirao and myself (Malena Vain) developed the story, and during the following months we made up the dialogues and the final structure with the help of the other members of Media Res: Lara Belén de Luca, Telma Crisanti, Leandro Casas Silva, Ariadna Celeste Mierez, Antú Martín and María Florencia Schiappapietra.
Nowadays "REM" is on pre-production under my direction and on the hands of a crew consisting of students and graduates from FUC (Universidad del Cine), but we still need colaboration from anyone who might be interested in the development of our project.
We need crowdfunding so that "REM" is made with the quality we have imagined it.

A group of young adults from Buenos Aires go for a trip out of town. Just by the time they arrive, their time there is spoiled by a mysterious disease: those who fall asleep and reach the R.E.M. stage of sleep can't wake up.
Quarentine is declared. Trapped, time runs and unfolds all which nor science nor the system can explain.
The missing parts of the jigzaw are spread over the real world and the dream world. It could mean that those who want to know the answers may have to get closer to the myths of the area to find them, and meet the people who hide behind the mysteries.
Meanwhile, face the risks.FILM CREW
