PROJECT: POCO PRIMA DEL CAFFÈ (JUST BEFORE COFFEE TIME)
“Poco prima del caffè” is a short film in the surreal fantasy genre on the theme of time. Time in relation to our fate, of which we are the only masters.
Since the first 2013 version, the soundtrack has changed. With this new version, Daniele Teodosi’s music sets out to create an even more surreal and dream-like effect. The meeting with Daniele was not accidental. They bumped into each other at a concert by Gianni Maroccolo, an artist whom they both love very much.
To complete the picture, Daniele brought in the participation of Claudio Santoni and Alexandre Manuel, with whom Jonathan had already shared previous projects. Something brought them together again to share another wonderful experience.
