Up and coming brilliant Filmmaker Antonio Racciano (2013) has been making an impressive showing throughout the Indy circuit. We had the good fortune
to meet at the Toronto Film Festival in 2012 when he was making his film debut as an actor in Ben Affleck's Argo, playing a small cameo role as "The
Waiter", in the scene at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. I had the good fortune to sit down with Antonio for an impromptu interview. Here is a transcript
of our fascinating interview.
Me: How are you enjoying Toronto?
Antonio Racciano: I love it, I grew up not too far from here in Buffalo.
Me: Right across Peace Bridge.
Antonio: Yes, that's right. My family and I would come to Toronto quite frequently and we always had a great time. It's a beautiful city.
Me: What have you been working on?
Antonio: Well, I'm here in support of Ben Affleck and his movie Argo, in which I make a cameo appearance.
Me: I saw it, you did a great job. How fun...
Antonio: Thank you, I had a good time doing it.
Me: I couldn't help but notice that you didn't have any lines in the film.
Antonio: Yes, I didn't want any..
Antonio: ..I just felt like this is Ben's movie and I just wanted to make a cameo appearance for fun...be on the set and have a good time...it was an
extraordinary experience working that day, everyone was there, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Ben Affleck even Jennifer Garner was there that day, hanging
out, watching. It was alot of fun.
Me: Are you working on a new film?
Antonio: Yes I have been working on a new film. It's called "Their Unique Journey Inside Hollywood".
Me: What's it about?
Antonio: It's an in depth look into how friends of mine have made a success in Hollywood...Everyone who is successful has had to follow a unique path
to make it in Hollywood. It's not like being a Doctor. You know after you finish Med School, you will be a doctor but in the entertainment industry,
there is no such true path to success.
Me: Sounds like an interesting movie, I can't wait to see it. Who's in it?
Antonio: Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Spike Lee, Vince Vaughn...and the list goes on.
Me: When's it coming out?
Antonio: we are in the process of editing in post at the moment. We have a release date set for January 2013. We'll see what happens.
Me: Well thank you for taking some time to sit down with me.
Antonio: It was my pleasure..
Well that was my intereview with the very talented Antonio Racciano, here in beautiful Toronto at the film festival.
