Gustavo Camelot


Fighting for what you believe in can not only break rules, but your own persona... Through seven bottles of cursed wine, we follow the journey of Valentina, a beautiful artist living in Berlin. With a sordid history of sexual and physical abuse, and having been caught in the arms of her female lover by her wealthy, overbearing mother, Val is forced to make a choice: to live a "normal" life, or be forever cut off - financially and emotionally. She concedes to her mother's ultimatum, and pursues a heterosexual relationship to appease her, only to catch her new boyfriend in bed with another man. Her inability to cope with her life triggers her repressed male alter-ego to emerge and take over…

About the Director: 

Writer/Director/Producer, Gustavo Camelot, hails from the “Switzerland of the Americas,” Uruguay, and has also lived in Barcelona, Paris, Munich, Berlin, London, New York, and most recently Los Angeles. As a result of his international upbringing, Gustavo speaks four languages, Spanish, English, German, and French, and has a rich understanding of diverse cultural idiosyncrasies and aesthetics.

Educated in Montevideo and at Oxford, Gustavo’s critical eye for composition was first cultivated when he received advanced degrees in the discipline of architecture, which served as an appropriate foundation for understanding the spatial relationships inherent in film composition. He later segued into theater arts after attending conservatory post-graduate programs at Escola de Teatre Musical Memory in Barcelona, and Mountview Conservatoire of the Performing Arts in London. His performances at London’s West End theatre district and in Barcelona garnered critical acclaim, and lead to his sojourn into film acting and directing, and a recent move to Los Angeles to pursue his filmmaking ambitions.

Gustavo has appeared in numerous international films, television pilots, short films and commercials, and has finished an intensive film development program at The Los Angeles Film School.

Vidrio Roto (Broken Glass) is Gustavo’s first feature. Adapted from his novel, Memories of an Ideal in Coma, and based on his multi-award-winning short The Seventh Bottle, about the story of VAL and Val, Broken Glass' cinematic twists and turns reflects Gustavo’s diverse background by application of his multi-cultural heritage and penchant for languages into the body of work.

Gustavo was also a "Project: Involve Honoree", a mentorship program of FIND (Film Independent - Los Angeles), sponsored by Eastman Kodak, Sony Pictures and HBO, and is now in full pre-production for his next project, The Tree of Red Stars ("Las Cinco Puntas del Lucero"), based on the novel by Tessa Bridal and already declared of National Interest by the Uruguayan Government. The Tree of Red Stars is a coming of age, love story set in Uruguay in the 60’s and 70’s. The story starts off in the peaceful, beautiful tree lined streets of Montevideo, a safe playground for all children, and ends up, in the USA-supported torture chambers during the fascist Military dictatorship, a period in which, thousands of Uruguayans were tortured and murdered for their political convictions, their dreams of social equality, the five pointed red star...

Hello from halfamiddleman

 

Hello Filmmakers,
My name is Rob Mankowitz and I was the casting dir. and a producer of
the indie film "The Utopian Society" starring Malin Akerman. We were in
more than 40 film festivals...too long ago.

My producing partner and director of the film was John P. Aguirre. We
are still collaborating on indie projects. However, the big news is
that we have recently broken through the "sales agent" barrier to deal
DIRECTLY with arguably the largest independent video distributor in
North America. They can place your film on itunes, vod, cable &
other outlets. We have cultivated a strong relationship with the vp of
business development of this company who has literally said we are the
FIRST and only producers/filmmakers he will accept content from
directly! This is called an OUTPUT deal. We have overcome the greatest
obstacle in the distro game.

As filmmakers who have been put through the ringer or more precisely
ripped off in the past we understand how incredibly frustrating it can
be to put your blood, sweat and tears into making your film with the
goal of acclaim and financial reward only to find that through shady
practices you end up making pennies...if that. Most sales agents who
shop your film to various entities will charge upwards of 30% per sale
we will be SIGNIFICANTLY lower.

At this time we are seeking to partner with filmmakers who have high
quality FINISHED FILMS ready for the marketplace. If you are interested
in discussing our unique opportunity in greater detail please contact
us via phone or email. Not through this site...        ( p:323-466-1905
