David Ellender shares his experience on the occasion of ITALIAN STORIES DAY, this year taking place in Los Angeles on 25th June 2019.

Sonar Entertainment’s comprehensive production services include extensive domestic and global creative and physical production capabilities, allowing us to collaborate closely with all network and co-production partners to ensure content of the highest quality. Sonar Entertainment is currently in post-production on Lorena for Amazon, post-production on Weird City for YouTube Premium, pre-production on season two of Das Boot for Sky, pre-production on The Hunt for Amazon, and pre-production on season three of Mr. Mercedes for AT&T AUDIENCE Network.

“We are looking for local producers, writers and creators for new contents. In the last years we produced in England and Germany. The next country we might be interested is Italy for sure. It is a vibrant market with a lot of original stories that could have great success internationally. The European and Italian market members are always welcome in Los Angeles to discuss with us which kind of new strategies and commercial deals we can build together to get mutual success. Some local European stories might be very successful on an international level. Authenticity is the key for future success in the film making world.”

This interview was recorded during the 1st edition of ITALIAN STORIES DAY – Los Angeles, in partnership with the Italian Film Commissions Association and with the support of the Italian Trade Agency.
