"The Ritual of Happiness" is the new short film by Carlos Ocho. It is a new commitment to great little short film world, where Carlos tries to contribute with something new never seen before.

Synopsis

Felix is ​​a good-looking guy, well positioned, with a great flat, a pretty girlfriend, good health ... and no lack of anything, but even so, not happy.
His girlfriend Rachel tries to support him with all her self-help knowledge. One night, when she can no longer try, she decides to give him a writing that she saw on facebook one day, called "The ritual of happiness," which contains 12 steps to be happy. It basically says that if you have faith in life and ask the universe it can show you how you can be happy just by following 12 steps, then you will be able to leave inside sadness aside and find happiness. But the next morning, everything will start to change in Felix’s life

How we will use your contributions

The contributions are destined to cover all the costs incurred by the project: technical material, locations, diets, transportation, clothing, makeup, special effects, fx effects, furniture and atrezzo, soundtrack ...

El protagonista

Felix, the main character, will be played by Eudald Font

Eudald Font cuenta con una amplia carrera profesional dentro del mundo cinematográfico.

Eudald has an extensive career in the film world. He was trained at Galliner School (Girona) and Nancy Tuñón (Barcelona).
He has made web series as Space Men, more than twenty short films (some with schools as Escac or Bande à Part), including “The hypnotist”, “Crossing Lines” or “Open Relationship” (his first job with this project director).
On the big screen, he was selected in the film “Afterglow” and after that in the film “Barcelona 92”. He has currently completed filming “Hunter's Prayer”, which is directed by Jonathan Mostow (U-571, Breakdown or Terminator 3) and whose main character is played by Sam Worthington (Avatar).

Director: Carlos Ocho

He was born in Girona. With a background in business and two masters, lately he also devotes his free time to the direction of short films and music videos. His projects as a film director are:

  • FREE: Stories With Conscience (a project of eight short films)
  • My Reality: selected in numerous national and international film festivals: Hong Kong, Argentina, Amsterdam, Italy, etc ...
  • Boxes of colors and Pepperoni Sandwich, based on Emotional Ecology stories.
  • Open Relationship, released in October 2014 and today already screened in thirty film festivals worldwide: Budapest, Amsterdam, USA, Argentina, Panama, Brazil, Ecuador, Australia, Peru, India, Poland... and of course Spain.

The team

We have already presented “The ritual of Happiness” main character and director but to carry out the project is necessary to have a technical and artistic crew.
The cast will be the public face of the project, but there are so many people behind the scenes who are also involved and are the key of this project.
Little by little we will meet the "The Ritual of Happiness" team, but for now we will introduce two important people:

Photography Director: Alex Delgado Gerlach
Young film and image lover, with over 10 years of experience, he is growing as a technician and photography director, along with Xavi Giménez (Agora, The Machinist), Paco Femenia (Alatriste) or Sergi Gallardo (The Wild Ones , Angels of Sex).
Alex works again with Carlos Ocho after his previous work in Open Relationship.

Director’s Assistant and Co-Editor: Massimo Meroni Perego
He has been always fascinated by the cinema world and by management and assembly in particular. Massimo was trained at the School of Cinema in Milan and since then he has been very versatile in its work occupying different positions (writer, editor, camera operator) where he has learned very important skills but he has always been focusing more in the direction and in his work as a Director’s Assistant in his more important projects (a movie, 4 short films and several web branded content documentaries).
He is also audiovisual producer of music videos and commercials.

#05 / Nuestras actrices: María Victoria Llena y Garazi Beloki.

Hoy damos a conocer a estas dos grandes actrices que harán el papel de madre e hija respectivamente.

Hicimos un casting para poder obtener a las actrices de nuestro cortometraje. No fue tarea fácil ya que muchas de las personas que se presentaron a las pruebas vinieron muy bien preparadas, pero finalmente pudimos escoger a una de ellas para cada papel.

El papel de Pilar, es un papel secundario pero de mucho peso. En muy poco tiempo debe expresar mucho, y sin duda María Victoria Llena ha sido una excelente elección. Ella será la suegra de Félix.

Hablando de su CV, informamos que estudió en el Institut del Teatre de Barcelona. Participó en Teatro en las obras: “No et vesteixis per sopar” con Joan Pera, Amparo Moreno y Carles Canut , “Catalans Salvatges”, con dirección de Carles Canut en el Grec94, “Torpedo” de Pepe… read more

#04 / Gustavo Melella para los Fx del cortometraje

Nuestro cortometraje también tendrá efectos especiales. En este sentido contamos con el apoyo de Gustavo Melella (Planeta Gus). Es todo un artista en sus creaciones y su experiencia profesional habla por sí sola.

Gustavo Melella es profesor y realizador integral de Efectos Especiales de Maquillaje y técnicas escenográficas. Vive y trabaja entre Barcelona y Milán, tiene 20 años de experiencia internacional en el campo, y en la organización de cursos y talleres. Durante su carrera trabajó para el cine, varias escuelas e instituciones, así también como para la Tv y teatro .

Es un placer tenerlo dentro del equipo, y espero que todos los que ya sois mecenas de nuestro cortometraje sigáis convencidos de vuestra aportación, así como los que tengáis aun dudas... seguimos demostrando el gran equipo que hay tras las cámaras Haremos un gran cortometraje y tú puedes formar parte de él. Apóyanos!

#03 / Hedamusic: Banda Sonora Original para el cortometraje

Hector Paradeda es un chico nacido en Girona. Una de sus grandes pasiones es la música en todos los sentidos. En los últimos 3 años ha creado Hedamusic, que tal y como define en su web www.hedamusic.com: " hago creación de bandas sonoras originales para proyectos fílmicos. Creando un stock libre de derechos de más de once horas de duración. Plasmando mi ideario artístico y musical en ideas reales, pensadas para los medios audiovisuales.".

<br/>

Carlos Ocho, director del proyecto, vuelve a trabajar con él, por quinta vez. Ha realizado las canciones de sus últimos cortometrajes: Mi Realidad, Cajitas de Colores, Bocadillo de Salchichón y Relación Abierta.

Volvemos a tener a Héctor en el proyecto, porque creemos que éste corto es ideal para la música que él compone, muy destinada a temáticas con un componente oscuro y dramático. La creación de la banda sonora para El Ritual de la Felicidad va a ser algo laborioso para que de el resultado final que queremos.

#02 / Víctor Marín: Sonidista y post-producción de sonido

Algo en lo que destaca el equipo técnico del cortometraje es en la juventud, ganas, experiencia y sobretodo, muy buena energía. Así describiríamos a Víctor Marín, nuestro sonidista en El Ritual de la Felicidad.

A la hora de realizar un cortometraje, algo que se valora mucho es en la proactividad de todo el equipo. Es importante que un proyecto como éste, donde queremos ser meticulosos en todos los aspectos técnicos del corto, tengamos a personas motivadas a la hora de trabajar. Víctor a parte de estar formado como Técnico superior de Sonido en Barcelona, también ha creado su propio estudio de grabación llamado La Roca Records (www.larocarecords.com), situado en Castelldefels.

Después de varias entrevistas para poder escoger a alguien (con otros perfiles también de gran interés y calidad), escogimos a Víctor por su buena… read more

#01 / Ignasi Ruiz Altura: Maquillaje y peluquería

En el cortometraje de El Ritual de la Felicidad contamos con alguien de gran importancia para hacernos la parte de maquillaje y peluquería. Se trata de Ignasi Ruiz Altura

Ignasi Ruiz ha trabajado en varias películas como Grand Piano, Perdona si te llamo amor, El Perfume, Mil Cretins, Mindscape, Ásterix en los Juegos Olímpicos... etc. También destacar que ha sido nominado dos veces a los Premios Gaudí en este apartado, y destacando éste último año su nominación por Stella Candente.

En televisión también ha trabajado en series como: Los Quien, Buenafuente, Una carta para Eva, Baronesa o Sagrada Familia, entre otros.

Para finalizar también destacar que ha trabajado en teatro (TNC, LLiure, Focus) y òpera (Liceu, Peralada, Santander, Bilbao).

Con esto, queremos remarcar que sí en este momento aún tienes dudas si ser mecenas de éste cortometraje: no lo dudes más. Somos un buen equipo y vamos a hacer un cortometraje de alta calidad. Todo apoyo y ayuda será bien recibido.
