Interview with Francisco Villarroel

Director/Writer/Star of

Francisco Villarroel

What was the inspiration behind making this short film?

During this terrible COVID-19 pandemic, I was giving a lesson and I thought about the reality we are living right now, so I imagined a webinar where everyone gets sick. That night I wrote the screenplay.

Was there any particular challenges you had to go through to make the short film happen?

It was difficult to film during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have to take health security measures.

How has the short film been received?

Our short film has been selected to many film festivals. Just this week we were notified of our official selection by the Film Festival of Mérida, which is the most important festival in Venezuela. We won an Accolade Global Film Competition, IndieFest Film Awards and The Global Short Awards.

Do you have any other projects in the pipeline?

We have a feature film titled ‘Tango Bar’ in post production and we just finished a screenplay called ‘El Torturado’.

What advice would you give to anyone wanting to make their first short film?

Just do it with whatever camera or phone you have, but do it professionally. The story must have a climax and an unexpected final.
