The Stage 32 Videos: Concept

My first Casting

I did this pitch film about my project for our SeednSpark campaign. That was fun to make.

82 60 83 short film Pitch Video Seed n Spark

Hello friends, I want to share our first crowdfunding campaign. This is a proof-of-concept short film for a feature film of the same name. The idea for this short came up in a conversation with Jason Mirch here at Stage32 who suggested making a proof-of-concept film to help sell the feature project and show my ability as a director. The screenplay for the feature film took 4 years to be written, including research, interviews and re-writings. The short is an excerpt from the feature with a few more scenes. While writing the script for the short film, I managed to assemble the cast with several talented actresses. As the pandemic hit everyone, we took the opportunity to improve the script with zoom readings. We are already working on the pre-production of the film and as soon as we have the green light we will be ready to shoot. The reason for bringing the cast to the project at the beginning is precisely to have more time with the preparation of the characters, as this is a film that depends a lot on the acting of the actresses. This dream is very close to happen now. I am nervous, worried, anxious, afraid and everything else you can imagine. This is a huge challenge, the people at Seed n Spark helped a lot and I want to thank the entire Stage32 team that made me believe in this project. Here is the campaign Thank you! Luciano Mello
