Por las plumas

Neto Villalobos’ low key dramedy “All About the Feathers “is a perfect example of a film that’s off to a running start. Made with a small, committed crew and a remarkable, mostly nonprofessional cast, Villalobos brings in winning results.
Raj Kosaraju's insight:

All About the Feathers is a dead pan comedy, a story about the odd ways that friendships bloom.  A support network unexpectedly develops around Chalo and Rocky. Among those who champion their cause is Chalo's workmate, who likes to practice shooting, tell Bible stories, and discuss trends in cosmetics. There's the kid Chalo meets on the bus who writes a song for Rocky that he performs on the trumpet. And there's Candy (Sylvia Sossa), an Avon saleswoman who becomes Rocky's protector when Chalo runs out of places to hide him. Tracing the idiosyncratic nature of these alliances — most often in scenes consisting of one deftly framed continuous shot — Villalobos cultivates a dry comic style reminiscent of early Jim Jarmusch: cockeyed, minimalist, and affectionately attentive to behavioral quirks — both human and avian.


“Por Las Plumas” (All about the feathers) and Ernesto Villalobos won the awards for the Best International Film & Best Director at Festival Central Icarus. The award ceremony was made from the Capuchin Convent in Antigua, Guatemala on the 21 of November. "I am overjoyed that has been so well received in Central America, particularly in the Icarus. It is the first award winning film and I'm happy that was almost home," said Villalobos. Furthermore, Villalobos took the award for the Best Director.


Best,


Raj Kosaraju

This film project is the Capstone for the Director, Ben Hlavaty’s Film School Career.

 

We plan for this to be our last short film! We look forward to pursuing Feature Films after this project.It takes money to make good films. Plain & Simple. We are used to making these shorts on a shoe string budget, so we can make a little bit stretch a long way. The main funding cost is going to be food, travel and lodging expenses for the cast & crew, as well as some props & wardrobe, standard expenditures.

Raj Kosaraju's insight:
The word ‘diligence’ includes such qualities as hard work, honesty, persistence, and striving for excellence. One expert says, ‘Success doesn’t come from being a hundred percent better than your competition, but from being one percent better in a hundred different ways.’ Syndicated business columnist Dale Dauten says: ‘If you want to be creative in your company, your career or your life, it all comes down to one easy step…the extra one. When you encounter a familiar plan, you just ask one question: “What else could we do?”‘ This is it. After we are lucky enough to scrape through we will take a break. After all this is Cannes. And we have to win it. Your good wishes count. Our best wishes for Director Neto Villalobos and the entire team of Por Las Plumas. For Team ~Por Las Plumas Raj Kosaraju

Film-feathers will seek partners in Cannes Film Festival~ May 2013 ~Película Por las plumas buscará socios en Festival de Cannes | Winner in Miami ~Por Las Plumas | Scoop.it
La película Por las plumas, ópera prima del costarricense Ernesto Villalobos –más conocido como Neto Villalobos– volará a Francia para dar un paso más en su camino hacia la pantalla grande.
Raj Kosaraju's insight:

 

 

The film will take part in Marché du Film, an initiative organized by the Festival de Cannes.

 

It is one of the major cinema professionals meetings. Every year the Marché du Film gathers more than 10,000 buyers, distributors and producers, as described on the website of the Festival de Cannes.

 

Marché Du Film will take place from the 15th to the 24th of may in France.

 

There, they will present only 20 minutes of the film and the director will travel to France to present it.

 

"It seems to me an superbuena opportunity to expose the tape in the largest market in the world and receive feedback from the professionals", said Villalobos.

 

"The idea is to learn as much from the experience and listen to offers from people who are interested in by feathers," said Costa Rican filmmaker.

 

Feathers earned the right to be in Cannes by their involvement in the Independent Film Festival of Buenos Aires, where, in addition, won the Sinsistema, delivering aid for the post-production of the film.

 

"At the festival of Buenos Aires chose five films to the Marché du Film", said Villalobos, director of the film.

 

Plot. By feathers, it tells the story of Chalo, security guard who insists on getting his first bantamweight fight.

 

"It is a black comedy about the friendship between a lonely man and its first bantamweight fight, and how this relationship generates, in turn, other friends," said Villalobos.

 

The film does not focus violence generated in Cockfighting, but the social context which is that activity.

 

"It's not about cockfighting. In the film nor critical them or support them. The tape wants to imply that even in environments such as those generated good things, such as friendship", said the filmmaker.

 

Based on a theme seemingly anti-social, I want talk about the creation of personal relations", said Villalobos.

 

Award. At the beginning of March, the Costa Rican film was the winner in the selection of the Festival Internacional de Cine de Miami 2013 meetings.

 

This category aims to promote films in construction of different countries, providing a financial and promotional support to films that are at different stages of development.

 

To win it, the film won a prize of $10,000 (about ¢ 5 million), to finalize the details leading up to the launch. Also secured a contract with a promotion agency Spanish named 6 Sales, according to Viva weeks ago.

 

The 10th Buenos Aires Lab (BAL),  which culminated on April  22, 2013 in the context of the Festival de Cine Independiente de Buenos Aires (BAFICI), presented several awards, including the prize of Sinsistema postproduction for the Costa Rican Film by feathers, net Villalobos.

Raj Kosaraju's insight:

 

Recent Posts. Welcome to Amit Bolakani's world of everything movies! ... We recently completed post production for our short film FOB! – 02/08/2013 ...

 

Amit is a trained actor who has studied every aspect of acting you can think about! Right from Meisner, Michael Chekhov, Practical Aesthetics, Improv, Alexander Technique, Voice training etc. I have also been privileged to be taught by some of the best teachers like Ted Bardy, Seth Michael May, Patsy Rodenburg, Jean-Louis Rodrigue and Seth Barrish while having studied at some of the best places like Atlantic Theater, The Barrow Group and at Michael Howard studios. Besides, I’ve also studied Film Direction at New York Film Academy and have attended Robert Mckee’s Story Seminar to understand the underpinnings of screenplay structure. Overall, I’d say, I am a huge cinephile and love acting, performing, film making; essentially all things film!

 

Summary

 

The seeds for the idea of this movie started back in 2007 when Sandeep Varma wrote an article that got published in CNN-IBN (Part 1: http://ibnlive.in.com/news/ordeal-opportunities-in-uptown-nyc/40528-2.html

 

Part 2:

 

http://content.ibnlive.in.com/article/15-May-2007business/readerspeak-dollar-dreams-in-nyc-40585-7.html.

 

It got an overwhelming response by readers and he started to write more about his early experiences in America. When I read the next few chapters, I felt that herein lied a very well told story that is very truthful and insightful and had strong potential to be converted into a film. So, here is the gist:

 

This is a movie that tries to tell a personal story about us, South Asians, who left their shores and families to come to pursue a life in a foreign land. Why does one do this? Well, it depends. In some cases, to pursue a higher degree, sometimes because it's a better financial option, sometimes because it's what is expected of us and sometimes it's because we really wanted to come to America. Whatever the reason, the journey is a very interesting one.

 

Sometimes it shocks, sometimes it exhilirates but sometimes and less often it's awkward, funny and uncomfortable in a subtle way. This story chooses to focus on those unexplored but true experiences. If you are an immigrant who came here in your early twenties, this movie will make you smile as you see a part of your life and experience unfold on screen and will make you relish and relive some of your funniest, awkward memories.

 

We thank, Raj Kosaraju and other friends who have helped us to complete the movie FOB in NY.

 

Cheers,

 

Amit

GUNS TO GOSPEL

 

Guns to Gospel is the true-life story of a dreaded politician and factionalist, Michael Vijayakumar, from Jammalamadugu, Cuddapah District, Andhra Pradesh. During the fourteen years of his factionalism, he terrorized the district and his young family.

 

The movie portrays graphically his involvement in the path of power that drew him inexorably into the bloody political landscape of the district and the events that changed him into a God fearing, compassionate, a trusted and adorable human being.

 

Michael, who was once known as the most feared and ruthless factionists the state had ever seen is today a reformed individual adhering to Gandhian ideologies of peace, non-violence and love, thereby setting an example for others to emulate and follow.

 

Directed and scripted by first – time director G. A. Vikram from Hyderabad, a designer by profession, the film is made in docu-drama style. Using actual footage and enacted scenes to create a very realistic portrayal of the man and the events that shaped him, the film is of immense topical and social interest, in light of the faction ridden political landscape of some districts in the state.

SVA Dustys 2013: Q&A with the Director of ‘Rumspringa’

Last week, SVA Close Up offered a sneak peak at the upcoming Dusty Film & Animation Festival (May 4 � 7 at the SVA Theatre, 333 West 2
Raj Kosaraju's insight:

The Amish youth go through a tradition known as Rumspringa at age 16 where they are allowed to experiment with life outside of the Amish church. In Rumspringa, children are encouraged to go against their Amish traditions and experiment with the lifestyles of their English counterparts. This often leads to wild parties and rambunctious behavior, which is ignored by parents. It is also the time when a child must decide if they will join the Amish religion and conform forever to the rules of the church, or leave their family and friends and attempt to pursue an English lifestyle. It is a life changing decision.

Raj Kosaraju's insight:

 

The First Sea

 

 

From Kinomaton Berlin, 5 months ago not yet rated

One summer morning, Palestinian girl Wafaa travels to the coast of Tel Aviv, where she exchanges the separation wall for the horizon and sets her eyes on the sea for the first time in her life. Although Israel and Palestine are surrounded by three seas, none of them is accessible to the inhabitants of the West Bank.

 

The parents of Raneen, a girl from Wafaa's neighboring village, react very differently to the invitation by the Israeli peace activists. Every Friday, their non-violent demonstrations are countered with tear gas...

 

Children in the Palestinian territories grow up in extreme situations. They are confronted with violence and their horizon is limited. Israeli and Palestinian volunteers try to build a bridge between one another and ease their lives for a day. But is this a glimpse of a possible future or a one-day-utopia?

 

In conflicts like these, assumptions are easily made and children are often overlooked. Do we, adults, know what it is like to be a child growing up in a place where your living environment is rigorously shaped by the arguments you cannot yet grasp? Our documentary strives to give a voice to those who are often left unheard - to children - and ponder on the impact the war has on their lives.

 

'The First Sea' is a film about the magic of first times, about borders, and about freedom.

It is all about feathers,( Por Las Plumas)  directed by Ernesto Villalobos, received the award in cash for $10,000 USD and a distribution agreement with the Agency Spanish 6 Sales, after participating in the Miami meetings, held in the framework of the International Festival of Miami.

 

The programme was carried out from 1 to 4 March with the aim of supporting the completion of feature films and their subsequent boost to be released internationally. In 2013, for the first time, encounters Miami delivered the cash prize, thanks to the sponsorship of EGEDA (entity of management of rights of the producers audiovisual Iberoamericanos). "Award means not only great economic support for the completion of the film, but is also a great boost in the future stage of distribution by the feathers," said Ernesto Villalobos
