The Quarantined Film Project

‘The world is truly in new territory… there is no script for what we are experiencing. This confusing, diverse, elegant, tragic, powerful and transformative story is unfolding day by day. It is Your story, My story, Our story and deserves to be told truthfully.’

-R. C. Smith

Berlin based ChocolateMedia.de has launched the Quarantined Film Project to tell a global story of what is happening to you, me, us, everyday people around the world.

There is no denying that these times are intense and challenging. We  are documenting the personal and communal impacts of this pandemic crisis from a scientific, social, emotional and over all humanitarian perspective.

In these rapidly changing  times traditional film making is not possible without extensive resources to protect the film crews and the population in order to gain access to day to day voices.  So at this phase of the film making process we are attempting to document your important perspectives, thoughts, feelings, and experiences on this truly global story through the use of common modern technology. As we have seen in media in recent years much of the world is greatly versed in the use of a cell phone to record images and expressing ones own voice. We want to hear yours as we look at the collective story that is unfolding before us all. From the collection of all of our voices a picture is painted that has never before seen. This is the Quarantined Film Project.

How you can get involved:

Some stories people are telling are desperate, some are celebratory, some are helpful, informative and caring, some are even funny, some are panicked, some are merely questions to the world. What is yours?

We are assembling a film of your Expressions to the world.

It can be a short one time Video clip from a cell phone or from any camera you want or even a series of clips over time. It can be Photo images and Text or even Music. Whatever YOU want to say to the world.
