A star project found a producer at Cartoon Springboard!
Yesterday, there were lots of emotion and applause in the conference room for the pitch of "Tufo" by Victoria Musci, a TV special of 26 mn for the young adults & adults.
"Tufo" is an animated documentary that recounts the story of Ignazio Cutrò, a Sicilian entrepreneur who was threatened by the Mafia and is alive and active today in his own home town. His story begins in the 90s when he was first surprised by the discovery of a fire that had broken out on one of his building sites. He thought it was an accident, but was soon persuaded by the local authorities that it had been a deliberate attempt to destroy his working equipment... In the hard times Ignazio's family stayed together enduring threats and fears, knowing that their lives would never be the same again. But his is a tale of hope and rebirth, told through his very own words.
After the pitch, Victoria Musci received serveral propositions of partnerships. We are really happy to announce you that this project will be produced by Showlab and RAI in collaboration with Belgium, France & Luxembourg.
