005 – ENGLISH
What can I say? Today is the day of days. That for which all the work, patience, effort, perseverance and all the anxious nights (will it really work, what if not, how will I live tomorrow, how will I tell my children) were worth it in the end. THANK YOU!
Today I received the final confirmation of the federal funding. In addition to the funding from the state of NRW ( Film- und Medienstiftung NRW ) and the own funds received through investors, we now have exactly the budget ( planned to the € ) needed for my performance of “of pawns & kings”.
This is really more or less indescribable and probably hard to describe for others the way it is for me right now. This confirmation that I never gave up on my dream and that I can now tell my children that if you work hard enough on your dream, it can really come true. Nobody can take that away from me.
So now we celebrate …… ne, what is that then Corona test positive …*%&@**’=?, *’$$%&%@€ …
Well, that’s how it can happen. Off into the quarantine …
P.S. In fact, there would have been no plan B. Since it is a cumulative federal and state funding with 30% equity – had only one of the 3 components not worked, the whole project would have died and I ended up in financial chaos, unemployment and mental emergency. Good that I no longer have to think about it!
So let me thank here once quite cordially my always patient, always friendly and very sympathetic responsible persons with federation and country, which helped me to work me by the forms and applications. You were great !
To my friends, who carried me through hard times and that almost in the truest sense of the word. Without you I probably wouldn’t be the person I am and always wanted to be. Thank you !
My investors, who seem to believe in the success of the game ( or just wanted to get rid of me 🙂 ) What have the endless discussions and price negotiations cost me nerves ( Yes exactly, I mean you 🙂 ) May you all get out a multiple of your investment. You are the greatest !
