I come from outerspace. My human name is Antonio but it is not my real name. After I turned eighteen, I spent some time in jail for something I didn't do: I was innocent. I talked to my fellow inmates about all of this: how I got to earth and all the troubles I faced in this planet... At first they laughed. And then they advised me to make a film of it. When I left, an educator found me a job in a cinema stuff rental company ... for me, cinema started like that.
We all make films. We make our own films in our head for ourselves. Our memory helps us to make the editing. The truth doesn't matter ; what matters is to believe in it, to believe in that story... I was searching for a way to escape from that trap. The character "Pedro" came to my mind. He's poor, homeless and sick... he has nothing to lose and no time left to lie to himself. Pedro wants to understand cinema and most of all he wants to find the truth. He wants the truth inside the actors, because he's convinced that they are able to show the human soul.
I made some animation films, and fictional films. Making the imagination work is what guides me. Let the imagination work from the simplest raw material. Do not try to add, rather strip things on the contrary. Only switch on the camera if there is an idea and try to give it shape. Luck can help.
