The challenge of the big screen

“With the character of Dorotea I found many points in common that I did not imagine.” Cossar, author of most of the songs that make up the soundtrack, recalled how at the first selections to participate in the feature film there was no place for her as an actress: «I then re-presented myself as a musician, thus attracting Federico’s attention and later the casting reopened. This is my first cinematic experience for me, but I hope it continues. And in the meantime continues my journey as a songwriterwhich has as reference points Kate Bush and Tori Amos, with the publication of other singles. I have many pieces aside, some even dating back to about twenty years ago, and the period of the lockdown has inspired us to compose many others ».
“It was immediately clear that I was not normal, Federico took me directly without audition»Joked De Luca, who performs in the trio “You laugh by chance” and in musical performances along with Luigi Saitta. The character of Alfred, with the features they remember Andy Warhol, is a kind of “Peter Pan”: «Initially I didn’t feel him in my strings, he is a complex figure while mine is a very popular comedy, linked to cabaret; Also, when I see myself again, I am very self-critical towards me. In the end it is though a challenge that has been won in what, for me too, is the first experience on the big screen ».

Well, we officially announce that we will make the everyday life that we will tell through the figures of the profilmico an escape story in which every real personality will become a sign of fantasy and the extraordinary. For us, cinema will be a concert of the people where each instrument / person will be encouraged and shown in his or her specialty. The spectacularity of this cinema will be in the craftsmanshipwith a drastic reduction of the digitized effects not coming from the lineage of family cinema, as our predecessors teach us ».
