Promo Fly me / Volavola








We declared the promo of Volavola finished!
"Fly me / Volavola" is a movie about love, and how it becomes more difficult to know what is real and what is not. The story is filmed once as a regular Real Life movie and once in Second Life, but the 2 movies are interlinked. The promo doesn't really reflect the story, but was meant as a proof of concept.

The movie is directed by Berardo Carboni, who previously directed Shooting Silvio. The script is written by Berardo Carboni and Mario Gerosa.

More information can be found at the Creative Machinery Website, and at the Volavola Myspace page.
