First of all, a giant ‘Thank you!’ to all the people that subscribed to my new newsletter.
I’m sincere when I say that it means a lot.
Thanks, thanks and thanks again!
Let me update you on what’s happening right now in my artistic life.
If you’ve read my previous posts, you already know that I’m currently working on my first music album, Fear & Agony (yeah, that’s the title now). I’m happy to announce that the recording sessions are almost over: in a week or so I will have all the tracks I need to start mixing the album (that is, to give the mess I’ve created to a sound engineer). Hopefully, it will be released in January.
The second big project is Agalmatophilia, a feature film I’ve been working on for a long time and that I’d like to introduce to you with a series of related posts, this being the first one.
(If you haven’t, I suggest you visit the page I created for it on this website and subscribe for news and updates!)
Let’s start with some questions:
1. What does Agalmatophilia mean?
According to everyone’s favourite encyclopaedia:
Agalmatophilia (from the Greek agalma 'statue', and -philia φιλία = love) is a paraphilia involving sexual attraction to a statue, doll, mannequin or other similar figurative object.
Of course, I’m not going to tell you why I chose that title. I hate spoilers.
2. What’s the connection between this project and Introducing Lilith, the short film that is featured at the bottom of its official page?
Well, this is pretty simple, and I basically talked about it in one of my previous posts: Introducing Lilith was meant to be the teaser trailer of Agalmatophilia (or, better, Lilith, as the film was called a couple of years ago). Unfortunately, I wasn’t particularly happy with the screenplay at the time, and I simply decided to work and work on it again. It’s something I definitely don’t regret.
3. Are you currently shooting Agalmatophilia?
No, I’m not...
4. Is Agalmatophilia in pre-production?
I really (really, reallly, really, really, really, really) wish it was...
5. So... What are you doing right now (apart from writing some new stuff and producing the already mentioned Fear & Agony) ?
That’s a good question! What have I been doing since I finished writing the script around a year ago?
Well, I’ve been looking for a producer... Unsuccessfully...
I’ll talk about this next week. For now, let me just say that, if you’re wondering, yes, I’m going to make this film!
Thanks for reading!
