BIOMAB is raising funds for the making of the film "Fabrica Vitae, reflecting on the Fabric of Life" on Kickstarter.

 
Dear All , 

We are in the process of looking for funding towards the making of our Vesalius film. Since we have placed it on Kickstarter, we have already got 2 backers in 2 days!! So it's going well!
 
Please have a look at our trailer and we would be very grateful for any support however great or small, please feel free to  share with your contacts and Vesalius friends .

"Genius lives on, all else is mortal." 
 
Unique visions on the future of humanity and the hitherto “organic carbon man”

In 2014, five hundred years after the birth of Andreas Vesalius, the founder of modern anatomy,  we propose to create a film that will show how the legacy of Vesalius is still challenging new generations of artists and scientists to create groundbreaking work.
 
A group of contemporary, brilliant scientists and innovative artists will be questioned about their work and what they perceive the future of “humanity and the physical human body” to be.
 
It will be fascinating to record their unique visions of man’s mortality, decay and death.
 
Along with the ecorches of the 'Fabrica', the exploration and 'dissection' of these pioneering minds will be the backbone of this documentary.
 
The film will glorify the wonder of corporal anatomy as we know it and will ponder upon the revolutionary technological physical enhancements which have transformed and will further change the future of the hitherto “organic carbon man”.
 
The speakers in this documentary share an intense passion to understand the physical body and in their research often push against the boundaries of our knowledge and social acceptance. They experiment with the crossover between art and science to create innovative ideas and deserve to be heralded, like Vesalius, as brave and great pioneers. 
 
Your support will be used initially for a traveling fund to interview pioneers in the field of Art and Science.
 
We will need more funding to finalize the film, as the money from kickstarter will be used as a travel fund, we still need to find the funds for production. We only have one year left to make this film as September 2014 is our ultimate deadline.
 
The film will be shown during the Vesalius conference at Zakynthos Greece.
 
We are very passionate about making this film and are confident we will raise the money and meet the deadline, we just need your help to get enough funding to kickstart the film and get it rolling. This initial funding will enable the team (2 film makers, and a biomedical artist as interviewer) to travel internationally to meet and film the artists and scientists.

We estimate the total cost of the film will be in the region of 30,000 GBP.
