Project: Feature Film
Directed by: Francesco Catarinolo
Project state: Development
Description: Una Barca nel Bosco is a project of feature film adapted by the novel by Paola Mastrocola; tells the story of Gaspare, a 14 year-old boy, a fisherman’s son, who has to move from his native island in the Mediterranean Sea to a big northern city’s high school to pursue his dream – to become a poet. But soon his acute intelligence and independent thought threaten to isolate him from the rest of the world. It’s the beginning of a kind of ‘parallel reality’, which the boy can hide himself in and feel more alive.
The plot is developed as a constant interweave between reality and fantasy, where Gaspare, the protagonist, is going to experience incredible adventures. The most important technique used for the film production will be Live-Action: the protagonist will interact with 3D characters in either real or virtual environments.
