My name is Rafael Almeida and I am the creator of the web series Caligem. I have a degree in Cinema by the University of Beira Interior, and I have recently won the Sophia Student award, from the Portuguese Academy of Cinema, in the Fiction category, for the short film Igor .
Caligem is a fictional web series, composed of five five-minute episodes. In a dystopian world, a mysterious storm threatens the survival of its inhabitants. To guarantee the continuity of the species, it is necessary to sacrifice something, or someone.
In the first episode, we follow a man, who collects the corpses of those who die in the storms. But this time, the cause of death appears to have been another.
I really believe in this project and I found someone who believed as much as I did, the actor João Sério. Together, we produced the first episode, independently and without any external funding. We were joined by Cláudia Mendes and Ingra Barreto, our production assistants. We are a group of four people, with a strong desire to tell this story, but for that, we need your help to finance the next episodes. Without you, it will be very difficult to do so.
At the moment, any support is significant, whatever the value. The arts sector is very weakened by the pandemic. In that way, we would like to count on your help to get it up again.
Making movies is never a trivial act. Bringing a story to life in times like these is, first of all, proof of resistance to horror, uncertainty, fear. Cinema will always be a collaborative intervention.
