Dark gothic cityscape, an accordion, a mime, this is most definitely Paris. The teaser trailer for Fear Paris, a horror anthology from directorial trio Joe Dante (Gremlins), Xavier Gens (Hitman) and TimoVuorensola (Iron Sky). Based on this teaser, which isn’t actually of footage from the film as that is yet to start shooting, the film has the potential to be phenomenal. The trailer below presents us with a short story in and of itself as we see a group of mimes, with the ability to use their powers to create invisible weapons, go in search of their lost tongues. That in itself is a wonderful premise, and the aesthetics are very engaging.
Here’s the official press release:

Crowdfunding films in Europe is still in its infancy, but some enterprising producers have launched campaigns, using a few opportunities not yet available in the U.S. — and are facing a different set of challenges.
American filmmakers have mainly used reward- or prize-based campaigns on such sites as Indiegogo and Kickstarter, which some EU filmmakers use, and there are also country-specific sites like Touscoprod in France and Startnext in Germany. (For EU filmmakers, crowdfunding is usually a local affair, often limited to five-figure campaigns for niche interests or small populations within any given country.) Europe also has donation crowdfunding (with no rewards at all) and equity crowdfunding (soon to begin Stateside), in which investors take a stake in the film as they would a share in a company.
But because there are a limited number of equity crowdfunding investors allowed in Europe at the moment (a maximum 149 per country) and »
