ORLANDO, Fla (FNN NEWS) – “Hello! I’m a Producer of Woody Allen” is a unique and eccentric short film from writer and producer Marina Orlova, directed by Nicola Deorsola. This short is a cosmopolitan potpourri as an English-language foreign dramedy film staring Orlova and Italian actor Rodolfo Corsato, and the story and characters work together in an entertaining way.
The short, which was filmed in Rome, Italy, follows Christina (played by Orlova), who tries to get an extra ticket to Woody Allen’s premiere at a film festival.
Photographers mistake her for a movie star and begin to take pictures of her, while bystanders ask her for the autographs. The excitement and attention intoxicate her and she gradually inhabits the diva persona.
Suddenly she meets a man who tells her he is Woody Allen’s producer. During the conversation, she believes that she is already a star and a future wife of this multimillionaire. The viewer is taken through the illusion’s labyrinth, which unravels as spectacularly as it grew.
Art Imitates Life
Before it screened at the Orlando Film Festival, “Hello! I’m a Producer of Woody Allen” premiered to the world at the 69th Cannes Film Festival in parallel with Woody Allen’s opening day premiere of Cafe Society.
After seeing her movie, Woody Allen’s real producers invited Marina Orlova to his premiere at Cannes Film Festival.
Director Nicola Deorsola turned the story into a compelling piece using elements of drama, comedy, and even the bizarre at times. The viewer is easily sucked into the weird and wonderful things that Christina experiences.
The short film is definitely unforgettable, and requires an open mind going in.
