As most of you know, CODA is the passion project we have been working on for years. CODA is a feature length film about a renowned American cellist whose identity is shattered by a mystery that will lead him on a journey across Europe to reveal his musical heritage shaped by the Cold War. CODA is a film about music, identity, lineage, redemption, and about finding one's own voice.

We have worked endless hours and traveled back and forth across the planet to assemble a team of creatives: writers, music composer, musicians, producers, and talent, to finally bring this vison to life. We have the script, the proof of concept, and initial agreements in place. We’ve come so far but on March 13th, Covid-19 happened forcing the entire film industry to come to a brutal stop. The last three months have been very challenging for independent filmmakers like us as we lost some of our partners and financiers that were already in place. Coronavirus is an unprecedented event that has certainly taken a toll on everyone. With no income and no financial support for indie filmmakers in the US, it would be easier to give up and lose everything. We took time during the Great Pause to regroup, to think, and to bounce back. It's time to reinvent ourselves and try to find new strategies to bring our vision to life.
