already several international awards for formation

in the lead role - Manuel Dragan




 It was a march of protest! A march for humanity. Against the superficiality and against the passage of time.  At the moment, we have chosen technology instead of humanity, closeness, affection and togetherness. We opted for control rather than responsibility and trust. That may sound fantastic to many now, maybe these days too. But right now we should listen to These thoughts and once again find a way in which the relationship, the respect and the honesty take a much higher priority Than other values.

 Our world is in the hands of those who make and create, not those who let go and look away. This was also the saying of the film people and actors who shot the short film "Formation" in the municipalities of Stall and Rangersdorf in the Mölltal. They demonstrated solidarity. A rare commodity in this day and age. They all clenched their teeth and showed idealism and resisted the icy cold. Where the technology almost failed, down to minus 20 ° C, they marched, played and worked. According to producer and screenwriter Helmut Michael Kemmer not a single one of them complained, quite the opposite.
 
The short film was premiered on November 3, 2018 in Lienz in front of a large audience. Due to the feedback from the visitors, the premiere was a great success. After we have applied to the festivals in Austria, we now enter the international stage. The first submissions have been made and the first international festival results are already available:

 Formation is about freedom and personal responsibility. We prefer technology rather than humanity. It is a protest march against superficiality and votes against the passage of time. This raises the question of whether we humans still make their own decisions or if something else, such as technologies, media, states, corporations decide for us. The special thing about the filming of Formation is that it was shot on the DJI Inspire 2, a movie drone, in the Mölltal (in Lainach & Stall).  The majority of the team comes from our regions.  The theme is a bit daring and contemporary.
 
 Helmut Michael Kemmer puts it in a nutshell: "Art internalizes criticism! Art internalizes emotions! Art internalizes incompatible! In an always own way! "For the directorial work the Viennese director Vesely Marek could be won. The cameraman Josef M. Fasching and Raphael Urf (GrandurFilmStudio), who came from the Mölltal, took over the picture design together with his colleagues Max Ehrlich and Janine Dezman from Klagenfurt and all the equipment. The production team strengthened Josef Fasching senior, Heidi Schober, Werner Gradnig and Gerald Dellacher. The poster was designed by Markus Bernsteiner. The film music was done by Jakob Eder.
 The main role was played by actor Manuel Dragan from Klagenfurt as the moderator of time. The supporting roles include Gernot Aichholzer, Norman Patrick Zanin, Andreas Ortner, Mag. Regina Stich, Michaela Jessica Rehak, Christian Thaler, Judith Schober, Andreas Brandstätter, Laura-Penelope Draxl, Marko Mavija, Mager Sylvia, Karoline Thaler, Andreas Lackner, Andreas To see Brandstätter and Mathias Funder. The children roles were played by Tobias Thaler and Julia Thaler.
 
 Thanks to all the helpers who contributed greatly to the success of this film project, the film team sincerely thanks them for, among other things, the use of the volunteer fire brigade Lainach, the support of the police Winklern and the communities of Stall and Rangersdorf. Thanks are also due to Theo Ebner (Margaretenbad Lainach), Café Suntinger in Stall, Getränkewelt Lienz, the bakery Dullnig, Physiotherapie Kemmer and ADEG Pichler in Großkirchheim.
