Smile Shapeshifters - Fantasy movie italian project

Hi guys as a member of Chestnutwood production, i'd like to present you the project we are currently working on. title is Shapeshifters

Shapeshifters is an Italian project for a short fantasy movie of 10 minutes, with the intention to establish a good and solid base for a longer project, a complete fantasy movie, done in the "Hollywood way" but with few resources.

The short movie represents the first part of the entire project and storyline. It will be however viewable as a standalone, so that our little production house will be able to make it available to different contests around the world. Plans are also in the works for a dvd edition of the short movie with production stills, screenplay, storyboards and tutorials about the making of. The 2nd phase of our project is to complete a feature length fantasy movie...

Chestnutwood production was founded with the intention to bring Italian movie industry to a new level. In facts , in Italy, movie industry is not so well developed, no great space for amazing projects involving sfx s it happens in other countries like US, but also France, and Spain.
Ambitious project, we know, but we are starting little doing our little short movie, hoping to catch someone's attention both in Italy and in foreign countries.

U can read more on the project on this article in - Article by Jeremy Rayment

we'll keep u posted for sure.

production is growing, and we are setting up a solid working pipeline, from shooting to sfx and processing.
burocracy in Italy is enormous, but we'll fight our battle.
