THE COUCHMOVIE PROJECT is an international filmproject about couchsurfing. A movie about he community with the community, so EVERYBODY CAN BE A PART!

check it out @ http://www.couchmovie.de and FACEBOOK http://www.facebook.com/theCouchmovie?fref=ts (and like us, like us, like us, so we can show the TV channels that people really want to see some different movies, made by young filmmakers!)

Hey Couchsurfing Crowd,

we are some German filmstudents, studying at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg and right now we are working on an episodic fictional movie about couchsurfing. Right now we are damn happy, because we are working together with 3 German television channels and so the movie will be definitely shown up on television and of course at festivals (hopefully around the whole globe, so we can spread the couchsurfing spirit everywhere :-)).

There are 4 episodes and we are going to shoot in Frankfurt, Stuttgart (Germany), Paris (France) and in the north of Spain.

The most important thing is: We want to catch the real couchsurfing spirit and we think the only way to make a film about a community based hosting network can only be an amazing film when it is made together with the community- together with YOU!

You doesn't have to be quite familiar with movies and you can be a part in many different ways:

What we need:

Shooting location:
We don't want to shoot in a studio 'cause we want to show how different and unique „couches“ could be. So we are looking for some real couchsurfing flats (in Stuttgart, Paris and the north of Spain) in order to create an authentic atmosphere.

Actors and Background Actors:
Check out our episodes in couchmovie.de. We are still on the lookout for some actors from Paris, Spain, Italy, Eastern Europe... you can apply via email (regie@couchmovie.de) with CV, fotos and showreel. We are also looking for background actors in Paris.

Production Coordinator:
This is a bit like the AMBASSADOR at couchsurfing.org. You are coordinating the unit in your city (Paris or San Sebastian) and support us in any task of organization. It´s a must for you to have a computer and to know all that communication skills in general.

Location Manager: You know the best and nicest spots in your city? So you can help us, finding some locations for shooting.

Make-Up Artists



and many more...

What you get:
You'll get a certificate for your CV, your name will be added at the final credits of the movie and, of course, you well be a part of a highly motivated team and spread the couch surfing spirit all over the world :-)
