  MOVIE POSTERTHE LAST POST, 15min, UK, Comedy/Social Media
Directed by Adam Preston

A halfwit is invited to speak at the funeral of a girl he only knew through the internet.

Director’s Statement

Great work comes from passion. There are no small decisions in movie making. A technical job is creative if undertaken by a creative person. I want to work with the best possible professionals who believe in the project, who agree with my fundamental vision and want to bring the themes of the film to life creatively. As long as we are working ‘on the same movie’ I am happy to give lots of creative freedom to my collaborators. I believe a film should be made with a certain attitude that infuses everything – in this case a cheerful good-humoured, but at the same time dark, cynicism. This film, above all, should be funny, but there is substance to the humour and it should leave you thinking.

Interview with Martin Rosete, Winning Short Filmmaker (Voice Over)

I remember that the feedback was great. Most of the people liked it, so I am glad you screened it at your festival.

– Martin Rosete, on the WILDsound experience when his film played at the festival in 2013.

    Watch the Audience FEEDBACK Video from the August 2013 Film Festival:

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: https://vimeo.com/58150375

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.
