Aeroplano, Buena Onda form alliance

First pics up: 'Corazon de perro,' 'Io Sono Vera'

Buenos Aires– Sebastian Aloi’s Aeroplano, which is based out of L.A. and Buenos Aires, has formed a production alliance with Italy’s Buena Onda Intl.

First films up are Argentine Lautaro Nunez de Arco’s “Corazon de perro,” and Italian Beniamino Catena’s “Io Sono Vera.”

Both titles play off two phenomena: a market appetite for arthouse genre films; Argentina’s attractive mix of low production costs, especially when compared to neighbor Brazil, yet high-quality technicians.

“Perro” is a ’50s-set Argentine love story between a girl brought up as a boy by her lumberjack father and a kid who grew up in the woods with a dog pack.

“Vera” turns on a girl who disappears when she’s seven into a parallel world only to return years later. Catena directed Canale 5’s mega-hit series “Squadra Antimafia.”

Both pics shoot in Argentina next year, “Vera” first, “Perro” August/September.

“The quality of technicians and production values for the money you pay in Argentina is excellent,” said Buena Onda Intl. partner Donald Ranvaud.

Ranvaud has a distinguished Latin American c.v., exec producing Walter Salles’ “Central Station” and Fernando Meirelles’ “City of God” and “The Constant Gardener.”

Aloi also has a knack of supporting new directors.

Most recently, Aloi produced Nicolas Goldbart’s groundbreaking Argentine sci-fi black comedy, “Fase 7” bought for the U.S. by Bloody Disgusting Selects and The Collective.

“I’m interested in producing genre films out of Los Angeles but also discovering new talent in Argentina,” Aloi said.
