We’ve started 2 years ago when Alecs Nastoiu, the director of The Secret of Pin-Up Island shot a music video in the ‘Azo Mures’ abandoned factory. He liked the location so much that he wanted to use it as an environment for a feature film. First idea when you see this factory surely is to write a script for a zombie movie. It’s an abandoned factory with a lot of untouched rooms and objects. The feeling when you first get there is that a virus killed all workers and the place is now in quarantine. The more interesting thing is that this factory had been producing film for photo and movie cameras. It was closed in 2004 when digital age has started to grow. So in his mind this film should have been done with any cost.
Feeling of being afraid, frightened, scared.
Emotional pain, sorrow, regret, depression.
Feeling something is wrong or nasty.
Being unprepared for something.
Feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by someone else’s possessions, qualities, or luck.
Painful feeling of humiliation or distress caused by the consciousness of wrong or foolish behavior.
The theme is loneliness. And the message of the film is that loneliness can be overcome. People have to recognize that loneliness is a sign that something needs to change and understand the effects that loneliness has on their life, both physically and mentally. It does require a conscious effort on their part to make a change. Making a change, in the long run, can make people happier, healthier, and enable them to impact others around them in a positive way.READ MORE ABOUT THE THEME

Mirroring generally takes place subconsciously as individuals react with the situation. Mirroring is common in conversation, as the listeners will typically smile or frown along with the speaker, as well as imitate body posture or attitude about the topic. Individuals may be more willing to empathize with and accept people whom they believe hold similar interests and beliefs, and thus mirroring the person with whom one is speaking may establish connections between the individuals involved.
POINT-AND-CLICK ADVENTURE GAME
Point and click refers to a type of adventure game, in which the user interacts mainly with the mouse or any pointing device (be it a finger on mobile phones). This type of game requires a minimal knowledge about computers and is really simple to use even for casual players. All the game is built around interactions with items of the world. The most classic interactions are: talk, look at something, take something, use an item, combine items.
Most parts of the game design phase are to liberally use these possibilities, to make the player find solutions to problems. Resolving them will make the adventure continue. In a sense, point-and-click game are similar to puzzle games.

Quotes from the Film
Never look for the cause of the problem! Focus on the solution!
A bird is safe being alone in its nest, but that is not what its wings are made for.
You cannot change something until you accept it. If you don’t give up the things that you are doing wrong, you will never get to the things that you are doing right.
To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You only need to accept yourself.
Even if you walk through a storm, remember that kindness is the language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
If you are excited with us, if you feel there is more to say and the world needs to hear it and see it and feel it, then we invite you to join our crew.INVEST IN OUR FILM
After completing the film we will start working on the book with the same name. “The Secret of Pin-Up Island” gamebook where the story is written from a second-person point of view, with the reader assuming the role of the protagonist and making choices that determine the main character’s actions and the plot’s outcome.
After completing the film and the book we will start working on the point-and-click adventure game with the same name.
