(Milan, Italy--January 27, 2009) Rumblefish, a pre- and post-production management company that works in broadcast, design, print, and cinema, today announced that it is handling post-production for "Vivaldi, the Red Priest," a Liana Marabini film. Rumblefish Managing Director Massimo Germoglio edited the film, which presents a rich new portrait of the famous and prolific Baroque composer from Venice.
"Vivaldi was a true star of the Baroque era, and the details that Marabini brings to life in her new film illustrate his genius and charisma, and his suffering," said Germoglio. "It's a pleasure for us to apply our creative and technical skills to the finishing of a film that blends a beautiful landscape with inspiring music and the life of an intriguing and very important Italian artist."
Based on a recently discovered 1711 manuscript that sheds new light on the life of Antonio Vivaldi, the film speculates on a previously untold story about "the Red Priest," as the red-headed composer and ordained Catholic priest was known. The €5 million film, written and directed by Marabini, recounts Vivaldi's relationship with a female doctor from Venice, the birth of their son, and the unexpected end of their affair.
Shot in HD at locations in Turin, Piedmont, Emilia-Romagna, Vienna, and Paris, the film is being processed in DI, color corrected in 2K and finished with special effects by Rumblefish in anticipation of a March 2009 airing as a television series.
