About

Learn everything about our project - our goals, the people behind, the Basic Income... Feel free to comment, share, discuss, criticize or praise... (:


1) Our Mission

The main goal of this project is to raise awareness, to promote the idea of a Basic Income to people who have never heard of this before (and probably some of the ones who actually don't care about such things.)

idea_bulbTo achieve this we produce a series of short films (and probably a documentary) to reach the masses (i.e. mainstream), inspired by the most popular visions members of our community have submitted to us. read more


2) Participate!

This is a community project. And this is not just a fancy label! We mean what we say and here's how:

Get involved!

... by answering a simple* question regarding your own personal life! Answer it right here! Remember the question? It was:

What would you do with a Basic Income?

(*Actually, our question is not that simple. It sounds simple at first but if you start thinking about it you can't stop anymore. Ever.)

3) Collaborate!

If you need help creating your vision - let's say you have a nice poem and you feel it needs a picture or you want to sing a duet or you have an idea and just need someone with a camera or you or... the possibilities to collaborate are almost endless.

Add a comment here with your details: describe your idea and whom / what you need!


4) The Web Series

The concept

Love, passion, creativity, health...very essential things in life.

By analyzing all the answers to our questions, polls and surveys, and not at least the user submitted visions we get a clear picture of what people expect from a Basic Income. We find out which parts of their life they hope to improve... to UNLEASH.

These 'parts' are going to be our topics for the single webisodes (episodes of the web series)... reflected in the titles, like 'LOVE unleashed', 'PASSION unleashed',... just as you can see it in the sliding pictures at our front page.

5) The Basic Income Guarantee

A basic what??

There are many different ideas about..., definitions of... and names for that basic income thing. But for our project it's not important to define it exactly... Our goal is to promote the idea to people who have never heard of this before and did not study economics. We just want to make people think about their future, their lifes... That's why we like the simple and straight definition from the U.S. Basic Income Guarantee Network:

The Basic Income Guarantee is an unconditional, government-insured guarantee that all citizens will have enough income to meet their basic needs.

Yes, for us that's pretty much what it's all about: meet our basic needs. Because... if we don't have to fight to survive anymore we can focus on our other needs. Or other people's needs. Or something completely else.

We can UNLEASH LIFE! :)

But... why would anyone still want to work??

The producers

soda.film

We are a small independent film production company from Berlin, Germany.We FILM the change we want to see in the world! :)

The director

Daniel Boehme

I'm a storyteller (film director) and social entrepreneur from Berlin, Germany. I'm father of 2 children, play some instruments, see the future with my tarot deck and love cooking. I don't talk to much - but sometimes I don't shut my mouth even if I clearly should. :P


7) The Financing

This project is non-profit and all products are shared for free! If we get money from a sponsor we share it with the creators of the corresponding product.

But it's a full time job to manage the project, do all the marketing and social media stuff and produce the movies. We need to get paid for this and hope to convince some sponsors to help us out. We will also start individual crowdfunding campaigns for every single project to keep the budgets manageable.
