The front page of this site contains a stunningly realized oil painting of Alessandro's vision for this film. I thought that you might like to see part of the creative process of how that image was conceived. Below is pen sketch that illustrates the initial ideas. The artist is a prolific sketcher and this is but one of many hundreds, if not thousands of similar pieces that he has created over the last decade.
The new year has arrived, with screenplay completed, and casting in progress, Alessandro has been working on storyboarding the film. This series of drawings are based around the first sequence in the film.
