The Final Land


thank you space ship model

After many, many test runs, the probably final prototype for the small crowdfunding thank you spacecraft model was printed in 3D - based on a 3D scan of our original spacecraft model.

Next, the structure is freed from all supporting material, then primed and painted as a test. If it will turn out well, which we are currently assuming, then we will go into "mass production".

By the way, this is made possible by the more than friendly support of Fab Lab Siegen. Because they can do a lot - for example 3D printing.


THE FINAL LAND at genre filmmaker's podcast

By Genre Filmmakers - For Genre Filmmakers! Our film opens the new podcast by Marc-Ferdinand Körner (emefka.bewegtbildmanufaktur): #GenreFilmemacherDeutschland:

One day, at the Max Ophüls Preis film festival, we came together with Marc and his recording device and talked extensively about our film project. That became so much that it was now enough for a double episode. Episode 1 is already audible.

On Facebook he calls "The Final Land" his "Surprise film of the Year 2019"! And he even writes that through our project he could "regain confidence in the German film industry". He writes about our director, "he is exactly the epitome of filmmaking as I love it and would like to be - with a lot of heart and without billions of subsidies he produces an incredibly good genre film in feature length!" Well, if those aren't even friendly words... Many thanks for that at this point, again!

audio play half time

Over an hour of our audio play on the film is now finished. For some time now Marcel has been working his way through the film sound, shortening and tightening here and there, and writing, speaking and editing the narrator.

It's a nice job, because it's not just copying the story. Because it is told in a different medium, it also has a different effect.

Who knows if this would have happened if we hadn't also offered a audio play on the film as a thank-you option during crowdfunding? Most of our supporters will receive it at the end via download link.



After we had the opportunity to talk about our optical effects at the Vega-Camp in Stuttgart, it's now the turn of the acoustic ones: At this year's SoundTrack_Cologne, Oliver, who is already an old hand among film composers, and director Marcel, who did the sound design for our film himself, will talk about many different things, for example the haptics of sounds, synths, the humming of bees and sampled egg slicers, i.e. the sound world of Das letzte Land. On August 30th in Cologne!


festival approval from australia

Fantastic news! "The Final Land" will be shown outside Europe for the first time - at the SciFi Film Festival in Sydney! We already know the date: On 6 September, in the Opening Night, at 8:30 pm, as one of a total of 9 films in the competition...!

Film magazine Filmink has already published a part of the programme:


making the audio play

A new insight into the production of the crowdfunding thank you gifts: Now that our crowdfunding soundtrack album has been completely designed, Marcel has started the production of the The Final Land audio play - most of the supporters will receive the audio play via download link.

The main work is to write, record and combine the narrator's text with the original sound. But also the sound itself, with voices, noises and music, must be modified, paused, shortened or simply left as it is, always depending on how it is suitable for a medium that is only designed for the ears...


der zweifel - review

In the Italian cultural magazine "der Zweifel" Ettore Arcangeli wrote about our film and closed with the words:

"The Final Land is an excellent science fiction film, capable of not getting lost in useless hi-tech details and focussing on the human soul instead..."

For those who speak italian (or deepl): Here is the complete review.


soundtrack album

In the meantime our soundtrack album was being created - it's the basic crowdfunding-thank-you that every supporter will receive via download link. We noticed that it's not enough just to cut the music part of the movie into pieces. So now and then the music was enriched by sounds, atmospheres and dialogue fragments from "The Final Land". The result is exactly 29 tracks (and all of them already have titles), which have to be listened to and reworked next...


most original film


We are pleased to announce that our film was awarded MOST ORIGINAL FILM at the closing event of the Milan film festival Oltre lo specchio - Festival del fantastico e della fantascienza last night (ex aequo with THE POOL by Ping Lumpraploeng). Grazie mille to the jury, consisting of Luisa Ceretto (Bologna Cinemateque), Paolo Nizza (Sky Italy) and Emanuele Sacchi (Film Tv magazine), for this appreciation!


first italian review

Our first italian review was published on June 8th at CineClandestino - and is very positive! :) Here is a translated excerpt:

"Even though you've seen many reduced space adventures before, the confrontation between the two main characters keeps you in suspense, as do all the secrets that run through the story [...]. The Final Land has managed to master the problems you face when working in this genre [...]. Barion finds visual solutions that do not undermine the credibility of the story and the scenery. And all this without CGI and those more or less special effects that usually occur in productions of this kind and quickly disappoint. Here you can breathe the air of fine craftsmanship and that's what we liked the most. You feel an inventiveness like in those days when imagination and talent [...] made the difference".
