Daggers and Roses, the Spirit of Shadows: An Interview with Juan manuel Fagetti

Tell us about yourself. How did you become an artist?

In my teens, I always liked writing, drawing, and a lover of comics. Then with my radio show, I began to show it little by little, as an impulse, which little by little led me to the book, to the short film, and to show it more publicly.

What was your first job in the art field?

Actually, Dagas y Rosas is my first job, it has his book, and on the YouTube channel I'm looking to be able to make shorts based on the book.

I would say Daggers and roses and all its concept is the first thing I do for the public

If so, a challenge from the independent realization

What makes you want to tell stories? In other words, what are the themes/issues you want to incorporate into your work?

I like to think that fiction and science fiction leads us to stories without limits, and with this, being able to tell, how the forces of good and evil are measured between them through different characters, I like to add a certain mystique and beliefs in the character actions

Please tell us about your vision and your method of approaching a new project?

My vision is to continue expanding the universe of characters and their stories.

Currently we are working to continue making short films

Who are your filmmaking influencers? What are the films that were influential for you?

My directors, I love Tarantino and Snayder for how they tell their stories and how they present their characters.

I also love Star Wars, its universe of characters and stories that are told through them.

How do you think the industry is changing? How has COVID affected independent filmmaking/creation?

With respect to the industry, I wouldn't know how to tell you well, with respect to those of us who made independently, it was not easy at all to be able to make short films, I think that when it came out of quarantine, the way to be able to do it again could slowly be accommodated.

What advice would you give to aspiring artists? What are some of the things they must follow/avoid?

Believing above all in one's project, that is essential to be able to reach others.

That in moments of difficulties, not to go backwards, on the contrary, try to overcome it permanently.

Think of the project as unique and special, then where the realization can come with all that that means.

Do you think films/stories can bring about a change in the world?

If so, I think that fiction and science fiction have achieved it for several years.

Comics reached the cinema and also proposed their stories, and over time they mobilized the culture of the world.

What do you think people like to watch these days? Has the pandemic changed people's taste?

I think that people are looking for stories that are not limited by reality, action, fiction, with epic and mystical, they are becoming more present with more force.

It has suffered in these years and I see in these genres the possibility of giving us other times.

Please tell us about your upcoming projects.

Currently a new short film is being presented, not a sequel, rather, a new story based on the book and short of Daggers and Roses, the spirit of shadows.

I want to thank you for the space provided, it is very important for one, thank you with all my heart
