Spend Quarantine time Wisely: Art Movie created by our own Community Members
Just finished watching a movie created by two of our community members (@vachemorte and @juliakponsford). Not just a simple and short one. Nope: Not at all! The movie takes more than 2 hours, so get yourselves ready on your comfortable couch with your favourite drinks and snacks right next to you, and dive in!

It took me some time to get my full attention, but after the first 15 to 20 minutes, the movie took me in completely. I barely could get myself to hit the pause button to get myself a drink. Yeah, I was so stupid not to be prepared for a two hour sit :) I don't want to spoil anything for you, therefore I'll not talk about the story itself. But what I can say is that the movie named "The JUJU GUM Conspiracy" is definitely not your standard Hollywood movie; Far from that! It is Art House material pure sang.
One thing is for sure: The makers have some talents and skills. Both - @vachemorte and @juliakponsford - have done everything - other than the acting - themselves; from script, video, music to casting, makeup, set dressing and everything you can imagine required to create a worthy cinema movie. Super funny to see the credits at the end :)
I did very much like the way the movie is shot; Some great cinematography going there. Acting was pretty ok, with some of them giving a great performance. The music I loved! Mostly dark and haunting; Totally fitting the scenes. Sometimes a little to loud compared with the voices, but hey, that's just a tiny detail :)
The movie leaves quite a lot to the imagination, though the message given in the final part so much relates to what we are trying to do with HIVE: a fresh new start!

It was a Tweet this morning that led me to the latest post by @vachemorte (here) and it was my curiosity that drove me to hit the play button almost immediately after. Although the movie is more than three years old; The makers already created a bunch of posts about their project a few years ago; This one definitely deserves more monetary value!
Lets give them some STEEM!
