Who is Enzo Zelocchi and some of his thoughts: What can you tell us about your upcoming projects The First Secret and The Source? The Source is ‘The Crow’ meets ‘Mad Max’ with Tim Burton’s touch in a futuristic dimension, with a group of aliens trained to protect the universe and keep the balance with other parallel dimensions. I wrote the pilot in 2018 and it was a mix of a couple of dreams that I had. Receiving over 200 million views on the first trailer was more than I could have asked for. That video is now one of the most-viewed trailers in the history of social media. Read extra info on producer Enzo Zelocchi.
He opened up about My Little Princess, which he wrote, directed, produced, and starred in. The film earned a glowing review from Digital Journal, and rightfully so. “I gave a piece of my heart in that project,” he admitted. “It was an interesting journey and a very good experience for me. I watched everything through the eye of a young father and I looked at this tragedy of how a family lives through it, which is horrible.” “I put so much hard work and sweat in it. I tried to be very spiritual with it, and I wanted it to be authentic. The message in My Little Princess is love, faith, and family and I wanted to project that. I was very blessed since it earned me a lot of awards. Movies are like miracles, especially when they are successful enough to be seen,” he said.
Enzo Zelocchi is best known for his success with the movie My Little Princess (over 33 movie awards at film festivals and a 2010 semi-finalist for an Academy Award nomination), but also for his consideration to star as the new Zorro in Zorro Reborn, the development for the first Hollywood Hispanic superhero “Starlight Man – The First Secret” and as executive producer and vice president of development at Crossroads Entertainment. He is also listed as a producer of Find Me Guilty, starring Vin Diesel, which was directed by the Academy Award winner Sidney Lumet; and as producer of Shadow of Doubt, starring Melanie Griffith and Tom Berenger.
Which talent did you discover first about yourself, and then what came next? I have had a good instinct for business since I was young. The arts come in second, but I immediately connected with it. I literally merged together with my business skills with acting and that’s how I was able to naturally be an actor and producer at the same time with a deep understanding on both sides. It helped me a lot because the entertainment industry is a business and just being very artistically talented is not enough nowadays. Once you’re in Hollywood, you become a product that needs to sell. Waiting around for your agent to call you while you’re busy at parties is not going to take you far.
Enzo Zelocchi is an Italian/American, Hollywood film producer, actor and businessman, an award winner as actor, producer, social Media influencer, businessman and founder of A-Medicare with over 33 movie awards in Film Festivals and semifinalist for an Academy Award nomination with the project “My Little Princess”.
The Latino/Hispanic market has been very neglected in my opinion. From a cultural standpoint, strategically, it’s pretty well structured to be inspirational for young people. I’m more about empowering people. That’s what I believe that people who work in entertainment – besides entertaining – should also be role models. Let’s talk about The Source. What is the premise and what is your character? Enzo: That one is more Mad Max meets The Crow. The character, basically, is an alien with a humanoid body. He is there to train and protect the next generation of warriors against space aliens that go from planet to planet to destroy. Since my character’s planet has been destroyed, he and the oracles are hiding on Earth and training these kids. Obviously, they have to find these kids, fight corruption of local politicians. It’s like a post-apocalyptic scenario – obviously more around destroyed cities and travel between parallel dimensions. Find extra information at https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enzo_Zelocchi.
