DIRECTOR’S / FILMMAKER’S BIO: Dante Vescio and Rodrigo Gasparini met in film school and quickly realized that their love for classic cinema and genre movies was extremely similar. They began writing, directing and producing short films and feature films together right after graduating. The notorious “M Is For Mailbox”, made for The ABCs of Death 2 Competition, was their first collaboration. The short went on to be highly praised in their own lands as well as internationally, earning them 3rd Place in the competition. Their debut feature film, “The Devil Lives Here”, soon followed. Made with a micro budget of 50.000 dollars and shot in only two weeks, the film played in some of the world’s most prestigious genre film festivals such as Sitges, Morbido Fim Fest, Fantaspoa and many others. The film also earned them a Best Director and Best Foreign Film award in the United States. The duo has since written, directed and produced “Blondie”, an internet hit horror short film, as well as the mischievous sci-fi/comedy “Children of the Cosmos”.
