How was Cosmos financed?
In cosmos I requested the collaboration of the Department of Culture from Chivlicoy, Adrian Vila, is the manager at this time, I did it in a very short notice, but they were very helpful.
As I have some family in chivilcoy I received great support from them, they gave us a place to stay and even prepared a barbacue for the whole team!
What was the trigger to tell the story of three teenagers?
I was inspired by love, and I wanted to show something young, some kind of fantasy story. When I wrote the script I already had a lot of written scenes, but I knew some would be left out when shooting. Others scenes were transformed, because I believe there is something special at the present time when you shoot a scene.
It was a little bit of an improvisation work; I could see how the actors interacted with each other and the way the story started to flow. Some things we discussed with all the actors, for example: the characters attitude and the profiles they should have.
It was a very small team: one costume designer, the photograpy directorand two production assistants who took turns, plus the actors.
What aesthetic references inspired you?
I get inspire a lot in fashion, that’s why I chose to work with models such as Alex and Nicolas Lorenzon Ferrario and Stefania Koessl who worked in “El Clan” and I think she is lovely.
I get inspired by people and filming outdoors. They had a very strong look. When I met Alex I realized that he was special, he was one of the main motivations of the video. I thought he was like an angel and his charisma was beyond physical beauty.
Choosing the costumes was also a great inspiration to work with the fashion of the video, I chose special colors to go with the characters and with each of the locations and moments the actors were going through. As there was no dialogue, everything had to be visually striking to provide the image with more value than the soundtrack.
I really pay attention to the details. I received some comments that the videoclip had an aesthetic reference to “Los Amores Imaginarios” by Xavier Dolan. I saw his film a long time ago, as well as “Mommy”, and I found them amazing.
