On interview with Director Fernando Madero we got an insight into what the project is about:
“Driven by Desire is a milestone in my professional career, when I first started talking to my partner Andrés Alonso, the whole thing started as a “track day shoot”; I was still living in Vancouver where I studied film production, Andres was living in Puebla and we would have Skype meetings to discuss the project.
As we started getting more invested, it started growing like a snowball, we decided to do an actual short film with first class cinematic values, so after talking ideas for several weeks, I wrote the script, moved back to México and started working with Andrés to make this happen.
“The project had its rough turns, it was close to falling down during the pre-production stage, 2 days before principal photography two of our hero cars canceled, first day of production one of our main locations dropped, we got rained 2 days straight in a desert where it rains 4 days out of the year… and I could keep going, it was truly a challenge but we pulled through. This was the first project of its class to be shot in México and we wanted to come up with something appealing for all audiences yet staying true to the whole purpose of the film, which was to make something that the motorsport community would truly appreciate,” Madero said.
“As a director this was a dream project, I always loved cars, racing and anything that had to do with speed so it was truly an opportunity to combine my passion for racing with film. Since this was not a commercial project we had the liberty to create a project with no guidelines, passion driven,” with the soul purpose of getting into the best film festivals in the world. Thanks to our sponsors and an amazing crew we could make this project happen, we are really excited to see the outcome and I couldn’t be more grateful.”
