Matthew Toffolo interviews VOICE OVER director Martin Rosete:

Matthew: Your short film played at our festival in 2013. How has it done since it screened? Has it played at more festivals? Distribution deal? Can be seen online?

Martin: Voice Over has done very well in film festivals winning more than 100 awards like the Melies d’Or in Stiges, the nomination to the Goya (Spanish Academy Award), and selections in great festivals like Tribeca, Chicago International, San Sebastian,…

Also, it has been sold to many TVs worldwide, and now it can be seen online in this link:

Matthew: What motivated you to make this film?

Martin: The story. I felt in love since the first time that I read it, and I knew that it was a big challenge to make it happen, but I had to make it happen, because it was the best script for a short film that I have ever read. So I am happy that we overcome all the problems and could shoot it.

Matthew: From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this film?

Martin: I would say 18 months since I read the script until we finished it and Premiere at Gijon International Film Festival.

Matthew: What was the biggest obstacle you faced in completing this film?

Martin: Financing is always the biggest issue. Once you have such a powerful script like this, and with the super talented cast and crew that we had, the only thing that you need is the money to get out there and make it.

Matthew: What film have you seen the most in your life?

Martin: I don’t know. Probably The Others by Alejandro Amenabar. It’s my favorite film and director. He is super elegant directing.

Matthew: What is next for you? A new film?

Martin: I am working in a feature film now that we are planning to shoot soon. Also leading with the financing challenges, cast, locations,… but I am confident that we will be able to announce it very soon and more important, we will make a very good movie.
