Tell me who you are and what you’re doing here…
I’m Anthony Ferraro, the creator and director of Galactic Galaxy. I’m from L.A. California and here at the Berlin Sci-Fi Filmfest to present my project. It’s a web series, a Sci-Fi Saga, and a comedy. It’s about a space werewolf who meets up with a space trucker named Pam. They rob a space disco so that they can fulfill the space werewolf destiny.
Sci-Fi for me is sort of my default… I think that all stories are about overcoming adversity. It doesn’t matter if you’re telling a cautionary tale or a romance, but for me, the frame of science fiction fantasy is how I prefer those stories.
If I was to see a romantic comedy that wouldn’t really interest me. But if it was set in space and people were shouting lasers at each other… Now that would interest me!
Another reason for choosing Sci-Fi is, that I used to make art films because I went to theatre school. And… I was trying to be Jim Jarmusch. My films were successful but they weren’t my authentic voice. In fact, all I did in my spare time was watching Star Wars, Star Trek and anything with a sword… Or sorcery.
So at a certain point, it was almost like an Aha moment where it didn’t make sense to me that I wasn’t making that kind of content.
