The Story of our Project…
Hello, my name is Eliea Alon HaCohen and four years ago, as I was losing about half a kilo of my weight each day without going on a diet, I found out I was not realizing the ultimate dream of "natural weight loss", but that I was sick. Sick with Juvenile Diabetes (Type 1), a disease that usually appears in childhood, a disease in which the body does not produce its own insulin and is dependant upon intravenous intake of insulin to survive. Some people thought being diagnosed with a disease associated with young kids at my age was some kind of compliment by, say, Mother Nature. Others, more practical, said I was spared 30 years of malady. But for me, the minute I was out of E.R and back into my life, it was mostly a new reality I had to deal with. A reality in which I cannot be spontaneous anymore, a reality in which everything must be planned before hand - a reality in which I am the one responsible for balancing my own blood-sugar, or else...
This new reality, what with all the terms, the limitations, physical and nutritional, was something I needed to get adjusted to, and quickly. Each time I found myself feeling sorry for myself, wanting a break from this new full time job of a disease, I reminded myself that there are little kids out there who boss this disease around. It's a disease one can live with for years as long as one is its boss.
My way of dealing with this new reality was to challenge myself way beyond the challenge that the disease has inflicted upon me. I thus embarked onto a journey which will reach its peak with me running a marathon – I will run 42.2 km.
This is where Guy Ben Gad comes into the picture. Guy is not only a friend but also one of the most talented directors and a video artists I know. Guy heard about my plan and said that if I run a marathon, he must create a documentary about it. We brainstormed together. We asked ourselves why this film should be made. Our intuitive rational was that this film will raise awareness to Juvenile Diabetes and will allow a peek into the world of living with this ailment. As always, once we started, me with the practicing and the adjusting, Guy with the shooting, the mélange of unexpected events took us places way beyond our initial vision.
What will the money we collect be used?
Why raise the money by start*ART?
Through the Shooting of the movie we were contemplating on how we should fund the money required to pay all expenses included in the making of the movie.
A search in Google introduced us the fascinating method of crowd funding and we got acquainted with its fascinating global success.
We decided that we want to create a platform in which creatures and entrepreneurs can raise monies from the crowd to fund their creative projects.
This is how start *ART was born.
Now we launch our project in this platform and take the opportunity to raise the remainder of the budget required to complete the production of the movie directly from the community who share this important vision of launching this unique and important movie.
