Initial photography from June 9, 2015 in Woodbury, Long Island, Money marks the feature debut of one of Spain’s most talked-about shorts/commercials directors, Martin Rosete, who leapt to attention with the 2012 Tribeca Fest-selected sci fi drama Voice Over, which won over 100 prizes. In 2013 he won the Melies dOr award and was nominated for a Goya Award (Spanish Academy Award) for the sci fi drama.

Jose Rosete, his brother, is the director of photography. Known as The Rosete Brothers, they have been collaborating on films and commercials for over fifteen years. Martin is repped at William Morris Endeavor and managed by Underground.

Create Entertainment, a production house based in New York City and Los Angeles, is run by producer Atit Shah.

Plot

The story follows two affluent couples held hostage by a dangerous con artist who poses as their neighbor. As the two couples become ensnared in a web of lies and embezzlement, loyalties are severed, love is lost, and blood is exchanged for two suitcases full of cash.

  • Development

    From a screenplay by Barcelona’s Josep Ciutat, Money marks the feature debut of one of Spain’s most talked-about shorts/commercials directors, Martin Rosete, who leapt to attention with the 2012 Tribeca Fest-selected sci fi drama Voice Over, which won over 100 prizes. Equity financed, and to be shot at night, Money is “a contained thriller,” Rosete told Variety. “I love creating atmosphere and great visuals, but the main attraction of ‘Money’ will be working in depth with its actors,” he added. Still running a production company in Madrid, Rosete is a leading light of the diaspora of new generation Spanish filmmakers who, as Spain sunk into crisis, have had to travel abroad to launch their careers, for a lack of financing for first-time directors in Spain.

    Hersh Narola, general partner at Imagine Ventures, will executive produce under the division of Narola Films. Production counsel is handled by Cowan, DeBaets, Abrahams & Sheppard.
