So, this is the first post on this blog, and we’re glad to write it on the first day of the year! Almost everyone (reading) may be wondering what this is all about, even with a proper About page. We’ll be talking about The Wakefield Variation, a short film to be produced by Effetto Espanso. We’ll follow the whole process, and we mean this blog both as a “making-of” log book and a fund raising system. We’ll explain why, who and what (when and where as well!) to everyone interested in independent filmmaking, either professionals, students or enthusiasts.
The production is set in Italy since – well – we live and work in Pisa (we assume you’re all familiar with the leaning tower) but the whole project is internationally oriented and “english speaking”. Nothing against our roots, but considering the situation we thought this could be a nice idea to broaden our horizons.
The project is in a very early stage: a first draft of the script exists, but that’s it. We’ll deal with all the pre-production/casting/possible distribution issues in the very next days, and we’ll discuss all of that in these pages, regardless of the outcome.
