Save the Place, the tragic end of a real-estate agent

In St. Pölten, Austria, at the Queer Feminist Network meeting, a workshop on DIY film making by Ola Marty took place.

The first result was, after 4 people came together (Ola, Iwan, Antidote and Lun Ario) a first short film "Save the Place".

the scrip was scribbled rather than writen in 10 minutes, the costumes were gathered from the "take and give" place at the LAMES house, the filming took 2 hours, the cutting and general post-production another 2 hours.

Synopsis: A real-estate agent visits the LAMES premises in St Pölten, where a queer meeting is taking place. She looks forward to accomplish her dreams of intense real-estate development of the area. But not everybody shares her dreams...

This film is purely fictional and intended as comedy and although we fight gentrification and mainstream pressure, we don't condone violence against real-estate agents.

Feedback welcome!

With some more time, a mute film structure was adopted, a more careful post production took place and new storyline elements were integrated. Save the Place, the timeless version in Sepia
