The work of the finalist couples intersects with the work of the jury, tutors, partners and illustrators pursuing the aim of a multidisciplinary dialogue between arts.
The residency is conceived as an educational and training moment with Claudio Balboni (screenwriter of La strada vecchia, L’ultima festa, Grandi ma piccoli), Marco Borromei (screenwriter of La santa che dorme, Saremo giovani e bellissimi, Skam Italia e Piccolo corpo) and Alessandro Bosi (screenwriter of È tutta colpa nostra, Anni da cane, Come la notte).
The educational path trains the participants for the public Pitch and involves many ways of learning and dialogue in order to reach the objective we set: the creation of a contemporary creative community. Single and collective classes are alternated with Todi guided tours in collaboration with the Beverly Pepper Foundation and with special projections at Postmodernissimo in Perugia and at Cinema Nido dell’Aquila in Todi.
During the residency second step for the short film realization, Giulia D’Amato (producer in Gianluca Arcopinto crew) assists the winners all along the work stages as casting, preparation of the setting and film making.
The path of Ustories couples is fundamental in the project for presenting an accomplished screenplay and short film which implies, during the work process, the application of tools and knowledge useful to relate to the audiovisual field.
