Been A While | The NEW Romantic Short Film From director Julio Palmeiri By Armando Diaz, Jr.
During the third week of March 2010, Guatemalan ﬁlm maker Julio Ponce Palmieri produced his most recent short ﬁlm titled “BEEN A WHILE”. For the ﬁrst time in his young ﬁlm career, Julio Ponce Palmieri dives into the romantic comedy arena with this short ﬁlm that tells the story of a man who runs into a prostitute and later recognizes her to be the old high school sweetheart he had cared about many years ago.
Running at 8 minutes and shot with the revolutionary Canon 7D, the ﬁlm stars Canadian actors Kim Allan and Phil MacFadden who wonderfully portrayed the characters and gave life to the turbulent and comedic emotions that the script calls for.
Fully completed over the course of a week, the short ﬁlm will undergo ﬁlm festival submissions as well as already having secured TV play in Guatemala with the cable company TVO Telecom and its channel 6.
All of Julio Ponce Palmieri’s short ﬁlms are currently being distributed worldwide by the Toronto company Ouat Media and “BEEN A WHILE” will be submitted to them as well for consideration.
