Next Step 2015

GERMANY / AUSTRIA

Feature Film

His first feature project, 7500, will tell the story of an average man who finds himself in an extreme situation, and a lost young boy, who falls in the fatal path of hate and extremism by trying to commit a terrorist attack. The whole story will take place inside a plane’s cockpit, under particularly claustrophobic circumstances. Patrick is planning on shooting in one 3-hour take, in real-time, and cutting it down to a 90’ film, with a semi-documentary visual style and a naturalistic feel, giving actors a lot of space to improvise. Through this story, he will challenge the audience and will push them to question their own feelings and behaviours, if they were faced with a similar situation, of having to save someone’s life during a crisis.
