Raffaele Ferrante and Savino Napoleone organized the key cast and the locations for the short film. But a big problem remained in that the story outline they presented me was way too broad and extensive for being summarized in a nine-minute film. The authors had the idea of a gender non-specific child who wanders through his or her subconscious and encounters the angel-like figure “Gila” who shows the child a way to deal with their traumata. But how could we keep the look of the child neutral and gender non-specific in the film? How would we be able to create a mystic atmosphere around Gila without making her look ridiculous? And in which way would a space have to be created to be recognizable as the subconscious?
