Tutti and Company
During a time where many businesses and creatives have struggled to remain in production, Tucci and Company have continued to stand out in the industry as a movie production powerhouse. The company originated as a home for talented and diverse storytellers and filmmakers dedicated to creating only the best content, but it has grown exponentially into much more than that.
Founded by brothers Damiano and Tiziano Tucci in 2019, Tucci and Company provide services such as consulting, development, production, and distribution. The Tuccis are incredibly seasoned and talented individuals who were making waves in the film industry long before the founding of Tucci and Company. Damiano, a co-founder of Parkside Pictures, produced over 30 titles just between 2012 and 2018. Throughout his career, he has produced over 40 titles and worked to evolve independent film finance models. Tiziano, a classically trained musician, and filmmaker knows every step of the filmmaking process inside and out – especially the financial aspects. His work includes many commercials for clients such as Apple, American Express, Google, and more.
You may recognize some of the films they’ve been working on. Borrego, starring Lucy Hale, is a thriller following a young botanist taken captive by an inexperienced drug mule while studying an invasive plant species in the desert. The film is scheduled to release in 2021.
So much more can be expected from Tucci and Company soon, including The Birthday Cake, starring Ewan McGregor, Val Kilmer, Shiloh Fernandez, and Penn Badgley. The brothers have worked with many notable names in Hollywood, such as Anna Paquin, Denise Richards, James Belushi, Adrien Grenier, John Krasinski, and Ray Liotta.
Independent film companies work with directors and give them complete control over the creation and art of the final piece. Therefore, for Damiano and Tiziano Tucci, it makes total sense for them to become a part of this industry. Through Damiano’s expertise in producing and Tiziano’s passion for creativity, the independent film industry is perfect for them to put together their artistic talents. Their creations bring a whole new meaning to the word storytelling, but unfortunately, these types of films tend to have to put in more work to fund, budget and distribute the creative masterpieces they create.
The brothers definitely don’t mind. When it comes to financing films the brothers say, “It’s like most other businesses, you have to really understand the market value (or potential) of the film itself. After that, it’s working backward to determine if the market value of the film, justifies the cost of making the film; financially speaking. And if it doesn’t, you have to determine whether or not the risks are worthwhile with consideration to the reasons you set out to make the film.”
The work these young entrepreneurs have accomplished in such little time is quite impressive. The work and dedication that goes into independent film production are much more than meets the eye – from gathering all the components to finding investors to finance production, the Tucci brothers have become experts in their field.
Tucci and Company’s business is helping those find a voice in an industry that can feel impossible to break through at times. By providing a backbone of logistical and financial support for creators, they continue to inspire artists and aid them in making their work come to life.
