A rising tide brings everybody up
Local writer/director team Carlo Besasie and Ryan Plato aren’t in film to make money. (That’s probably a good thing). The brains behind the award-winning 2007 short The Cherry Tree and this year’s The Violinist, which will screen in the 2009 Milwaukee Film Festival (which begins next week!), Ryan and Carlo take an anti-vocational approach to the craft.
“Independent filmmaking takes place around your life,” says Carlo, expressing both the thrill and the challenge of being a creative person who also needs to pay the bills.
