Hello, I am Pablo Nicolas Raganato, a film student at the Miami Dade College (North Campus). I am currently in the Bachelor's program in Film, TV and Digital Production.

This is the thesis of the Bachelor's program in Film, and the movie will be screen at the North Campus on April, 2013 when is finished. Also it will me submitted to the Miami International Film Festival, as well as other international film festivals around the world.
Now we are in the process of pre-production and we are currently casting actors and violists that are interested to play a role in the film.
The short film is 20' drama rated G (General public), and it's about a 10 year old kid that loves classical music and wants to play the violin like his grandfather, an unsuccessful violinist; but his father forbids it because he doesn't want to pursue the same life that his grandfather did; the life of an artist following his dreams.
What I m looking for my movie is:
A caucasian 8-12 year old boy to play the role of Sebastian, a kid that likes classical music and is very methodical.
A caucasian middle age man (34-45) to play the role of Will, Sebastian's father. He is temperamental, like a business man.
