Fine

Director: The Heyl Brothers.
The talented Heyl Brothers take you on a romantic journey of hope and love. The life of the happy and positive official Dickie (Corstiaan Smorenburg) suddenly changes when he meets a local traffic warden (Babette Holtmann) and falls in love. Unfortunately she is not that charmed, leaving Dickie desperate for her attention. Many lives are affected on Dickie’s quest for love…but will he finally conquer her heart? Young, old, religious or atheist. Anyone who’s in for a laugh, a sucker for love, longs for togetherness, is brainwashed by Disney and loves a happy end! For all you pessimists, chronically depressed, worrywarts and gloomy souls: We can’t be held responsible for life changing events or any sudden occurrence of hope, view at your own risk… we can however recommend this movie.

The Acid Theatre

Director: The Heyl Brothers.
In this alternate reality of the ‘50’s we follow a little girl “Iza” (Lisa Eernisse) who after a horrifying incident with her father, wakes up in the afterlife. Here she meets strange creatures of the night, who take her to a party of darkness hosted by “Rinse”. Surrounded by terrifying creatures she feels utterly disrupted in her reality. Rinse notices this and shows her the alternate version of the party through the power of his music. Now Iza is in a blissful place, meeting all the wonderful creatures she once feared. But the journey is far from over. Iza needs to get home and only Rinse can show her the way… The Concept - Additional Information The Acid Theatre is a unique concept evolving from a meeting between a director and a music artist. The video and the song are created simultaneously by an extraordinary joint venture of two professionals, both specialized in their game. Challenged by their ability to adapt to one another the project was put to a whole new level of creativity. Another unique thing about this unique production is that it’s been fully financed by the artists. This gave them total creative freedom to apply the newest techniques in cinema production, like the custom developed E.D.I.© effect. Dubtek DuBTeK , a mix of “Dubstep” and “Tekno”, is a new futuristic and up-beat dance music. DuBTeK is on the rise to be the next big thing and “The Acid Theatre” shall be the messenger to deliver this prophecy to the devoted followers of dance music. EDI “Extreme Detail Image” is the new ultra high definition experience which will give your film the fullest and richest detail possible. The Acid Theatre© is the first film project in which E.D.I has been fully enabled.
