Your movie New Order - in a few words, what is it about?

 

New Order is an independent sci-fi movie, a low budget production. It is the story of five characters who take refuge in a house. A doctor follows the actions of the characters from his laboratory. The film begins as an apocalyptic end of the world story, but I actually wanted to talk about life, euthanasia, and reincarnation.

 

What were your main inspirations when writing New Order, and how did the project ultimately get off the ground?

 

I was inspired to write New Order by horror movies like My Little Eye and Rec., I wanted the film to be a combination of fiction and documentary while maintaining an atmosphere of tension like a classic thriller. When writing the film, I knew that our budget would be limited, so I tried to write uncomplicated scenes - with a surprise ending, all based on dialogue.

 

New Order is confined to only a handful of locations. What were the advantages of and the issues with this, and given a bigger budget, would you like to have expanded beyond the locations at hand?

 

The whole film is shot inside a house and a laboratory. The exteriors of the film were shot near the house. Fortunately for us that offered everything we needed. We have tried to work hard in the house trying to do long interior and exterior takes, especially in the initial part of the film. The house that we used as location was great, very great, beautiful and perfect for a film of this genre.

Maybe having a higher budget, we could have done more and better action scenes, but I think we were good at exploiting what little we had.

 

How did you approach your story from a directorial point of view?

 

I experimented. 

The film is based on three types of shots: 

POV (point of view) - that allowed me to take long shots, very interesting. 

Video Diary - static shots that tell the background of our characters. 

And spy shots that always create an atmosphere of tension, as if someone was spying inside the house.

Only in the laboratory with Franco Nero [Franco Nero bio - click here], we used a different cinematic language, mixing dolly-shots (to give dynamism), video diaries and intense close-ups.

 

What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

Filming on the set was not easy because I had no time. Only three weeks to close the shoot. But the team was fantastic. We were a crew of just 12 people, with a great passion for cinema. The atmosphere on the set was very nice, quiet and at the same time very professional.

I always like to remember that this is not my movie, but our movie.

 

Your film stars the legendary Franco Nero [Franco Nero bio - click here] - now how did you at all get him to work on your project, and what was it like working with him?

 

The history of Franco Nero and the film is special.

In 2010, I and a producer I had proposed to produce New Order sent the script to Franco Nero as he is loved and always interested in acting in films. Subsequently, the producer has disappeared, stealing money from me.

I went back to Rome to see Franco Nero, we talked about the situation and my intention to continue with the production of the film. Mr. Nero said that he believed much in the script decided to help with the production - he has starred for free, and was also willing to become the co-producer of the film. So I started my company Tacci Films and we produced New Order.

 

Working with Franco Nero has been an honor for me.

Since boyhood I've always been a fan of his and be able to direct my first film with him was like a dream.

Franco Nero is a great actor, and a very generous person, able to get involved to help young filmmakers to emerge.

On the set he was always very serious and very professional, after reading the script only twice he already knew most of the dialogues by heart. Personally, I learned a lot working with Franco and that's something I'll always be grateful.

 

What can you tell us about the rest of your cast?

 

The other actors in the film were very good. For many of them this was their first experience on a movie. Federico Rossi and Tatiana Luter (Betty and Mark) wer4e first-timers, and they were also very young (20 years old) but both very good and very professional.

Even James Kelly Caldwell (Robert) in his first film was very serious and patient during the shooting of the film.

Margaret Remotti (Alice) was a pleasant surprise. She is an actress of great talent, has much experience in theater, and for me it was absurd that she had not yet starred in a film. I am very pleased and very happy to have had her in our cast.

David Wurawa (Thomas) is an actor with great experience. Directing an actor like David is always a pleasure. For me, David is an actor of great talent, one of the best actors I've ever met. With him, I have created a fantastic relationship, both professionally and privately.

It was really nice and interesting to work with this group.

 

With New Order being a horror/science fiction hybrid - are these genres you are especially fond of, and why (not)?

 

I've always been very passionate of sci-fi and horror. I tried to combine these two genres while sticking to my own style.

Science fiction on a small budget is never easy. I tried to make science fiction without expensive special effects but maintaining a social theme in the background.

 

As far as I know, New Order is only about to be released - so what can you tell us about critical reception of your movie so far?

 

I am very happy the release of our film. And I thank our distributor Acort International for believing in our project.

For now, the reviews are positive and are often very useful.

 

Let's go back to the beginnings of your career: What got you into filmmaking in the first place, and did you receive any formal education on the subject?

 

I've always been passionate about film, since childhood - and my dream has always been to make a movie.

I graduated from film school in Milan (Civic Schools of Cinema, Television and New Media in Milan).

After finishing school at the age of 19 years, I started working on film sets. Beginning in the production department until I got to be assistant director.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to New Order, and how do you think you have evolved as a director over the years?

 

Metastasi

Before New Order, I only directed two short films. Metastasi my second short film was an experimental project, made on expired film stock. The short film was made with very little money, but I won some awards at some festivals, including a festival for filmmakers under 30.

Everyfilm I work on I do learn a lot. Especially, I learned a lot about working with the actors. And with them I learned how to better tell our stories.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I'm currently working two new projects.

OldGun a sci-fi Western, a feature film in English I'd like to realize with an American production company. Starring David Wurawa, Gianmarco Tognazzi.

And DeaDShocK, a mini serial, genre sci-fi/zombie.

We are looking for funds to start pre-production.

 

How would you describe yourself as a director?

 

I am young and I still have much to learn.

I always try to do the best with what I have to tell our stories.

I like working with actors, and create new characters with them.
