FILM GARAGE 


Film Garage was a genuis concept by Simone Fenoil of the Scuola Holden - take genre ideas of thriller, horror and road movies and develop them into serious film projects. I was part of the team of  ‘mechanic’s who fixed the scripts until they were road worthy. 

The lab was devised as a first step from film school to industry with a first feature project.
