NewEnglandFilm.com: When did you know you wanted to become a filmmaker?
Lucrezia Mozzato: I’ve always been interested in the behind the scenes process of creating a film. I’ve taken a couple of video production classes in high school and as a student at the University of Hartford I would like to experience the different positions on a set.
NewEnglandFilm.com: What inspired you to make your film?
Mozzato: I originally wrote the script freshmen year and I also like The Office. I wanted to make a comedy in an office where employees are supposed to be professional and add a little dramatic twist to it.
NewEnglandFilm.com: How did you find your cast and crew for this film?
Mozzato: I found most of my crew on the New England Film site. I met my actors through friends/family and on Backstage.
NewEnglandFilm.com: What do you hope people take away from watching your film?
Mozzato: There’s at least some point where everyone has experienced something or someone that has annoyed them to the fullest especially in a work environment. In some cases, we end up discovering something new that most likely changes our opinion on whatever it was that we were annoyed at. A small moment or interaction can make a bigger and positive impact on a person.
