Hi Guys

I just wanna share this news with you.
Since a finished my studies on the Cinema School, 15 years ago, I always thought some day became a Director.
In all this time, I wrote the scrips of 4 movies, but always was knocking doors but nothing happenned.

Years ago, tired for not film nothing as director I wrote a script thinking in to film it with some friends and only during the weekeends.
Not too much actors, not to much locations and only 7 peoples crew behind the camera.
I wrote the script thinking in the only thing I have not to pay: The steadicam.
All the movie was thinking in steadicam shots.
but before start the pre production, I decided last year sent the script in a contest

Well, I sent the script at the contest, almost 600 scripts looking for 2 places, and...
I won the contest!
Now, The Institute of Cinema will give me almost $400,000 in order to do the film (in Argentina that is possible)
Im very happy guys, I hope to do a good film and that let me open some doors to became a Director in the future.
Best to all,

Congratulations Gustavo! Be sure to post a lot of behind the scenes shots (with the BFD prominently featured, of course).
