About

no matter what language you speak or what country you are from. We are Enjoli and Sophia Corréa, twin sisters and the writers of The Man of The Orchestra. For the past three years we maxed out our library cards to rent many great classic movies as we developed a story for you as glamourous as Hollywood's golden years. 

The Man of the Orchestra  The moral here is to express human greed and how it can change you. It was titled 'The Man of The Orchestra' to symbolize the villain and his ability to manipulate the other leading characters, like his own instruments if you will. He knows what they long for and uses their desires against them as they bring each other down for things they individually "need". His manipulation is seamless and monstrous. Each leading character will reflect different acts of greed from revenge, to lust & obsession, the desire to break free, and the need for material. WWII is being used as the grand symbol because of its global impact. We are proud to say that when it was time to attach talent the only thing we had was our script. And with that script alone we secured a multi award wining crew from our bedroom!

The Story

Premise

A young woman, Olesya is blackmailed into framing Rick, a mysterious man for her own theft at a charity event for the American Troops at War. She falls for him but what unfolds along the way just may have him killed. 

Like Woody Allen, Tyler Perry and Spike Lee(who also used Kickstarter) we wrote this to star in. Enjoli will be the Director and Sophia will be the leading lady which was created to be her breakout role. All other leading actors will be casted with YOUR help in a World Wide Casting Call. The movie will be submitted to film festivals for cinematic and store release.
