Production: Floating Things in postproduction

By Iulia Blaga

    Floating Things, from writer/director Mircea Daneliuc, is in the final stages of postproduction as it prepares for its local premiere on October 23.

    {mosimage}The Taoist title is just a pretext for a tragi-comic contemporary approach of the Romanian society. Daneliuc imagines the story of a man who hopes to make it big by training dogs whom Italians might use against immigrants.

    The 90-minute film is a 100% Romanian production from S.C. Tandem Film Production S.R.L. (www.tandemfilm.com). Location shooting took place in autumn 2008. Dan Alexandru is the DOP, and the cast includes Valentin Popescu, Olimpia Melinte, Liviu Pintileasa, and Magda Cernat.

    Floating Things (in Romanian, Cele ce plutesc) has a budget of €840,000, with €340,000 from the National Centre of Cinema (www.cncinema.abt.ro). United Media Services and McCann Errickson (www.mccann.ro) are also sponsoring the film.
