A Short Film by Marco Luca & Laura Aloi
After The Rain is 10 minute dramatic short film about a man stranded in his thoughts and struggling with his daily routine, finds himself doubting what he knows to be his reality after a series of strange déjà vu experiences cause an existential crisis.
The short film was shot in an intense/rain-filled 3 day shoot in the older European-charmed streets of Montreal, Canada. Produced with close to no-budget 'After The Rain' was filmed with a Nikon D7000. The short required months of careful CGI and special effects work to recreate the constant drizzle and dream-like feel throughout the movie.
The story was written by Marco Luca , but constantly and intensely reworked and perfected by Laura Aloi. The script is based on a short half-page story written by Marco Baldino over 10 years back for an english class he attended in college.
Marco Luca and Laura Aloi directed the film for their first full collaboration together. Michael Wieland (Saint Bernard of Love) and Marco Baldino created the original soundtrack, Roberto Luca also collaborated with some buzzing distortions.
Actors Franco Campisi, Sofian Lahyanssa and Robert Bouchard strongly incarnated their characters despite the long hours under the drizzling rain.
After The Rain was a work of entire dedication and effort.
