Making a movie is an expensive undertaking and getting your project backed with proper financing can mean the difference between eternal obscurity and wide distribution. But finding financing is not easy and there are many pitfalls to avoid along the way.
Fede Ponce, creative director on Marvel projects like Iron Man, Avengers and Thor, and currently developing and directing his own project, Sebastian: The Slumberland Odyssey, has a few words of wisdom to share on the subject.
Fede Ponce has been in the entertainment industry for more than 15 years and he is humbled by having had the lucky opportunity to work on some of the biggest blockbusters to date. Whether leading global campaigns of MAIN TITLES for MARVEL movies as Creative Director (Iron Man, Thor, Avengers) or creating a metal suit for Iron Man as a VFX supervisor, he has found himself working with some of the most creative people in entertainment. He has directed commercials and video game cinematics. However, he always dreamed of developing his own project. He received the help of Bertha Navarro, producer for Guillermo Del Toro, and has worked closely with Academy Award winning writer Zachary Sklar to ensure his project, Sebastian: The Slumberland Odyssey, is founded on an incredibly solid story.
