The Names of the Main Creators of the Film Trilogy Written and Directed by Bruno Pischiutta and Produced by Daria Trifu Are Emerging

The composition and production of the original score will be entrusted to American maestro Jay Jourden, and the set design to Italian art director Davide De Stefano.

June 15, 2022 — Hollywood, California — Global Film Studio announced today that American maestro Jay Jourden will compose and produce the original score, and multi-award winner Italian art director Davide De Stefano will do the set design for the company’s upcoming trilogy of sequential feature films written and directed by Bruno Pischiutta and produced by Daria Trifu.

“The making of an important film is always the result of teamwork. I am very lucky in this regard,” says Bruno Pischiutta, “because the members of my team are world-class and acclaimed artists.

It is normal that the director’s interest, in an important film such as this one that is about love relationships, is focused on the main action, the performance of the actors and the chemistry that must exist between the various characters. The atmosphere, the emotions of the actors and the different moments of the action are enhanced by the music, while the environment in which everything takes place is created by the set design. With maestro Jourden in charge of the music, and Davide De Stefano creating the ambient, I feel completely secure.”

Jay Jourden, known as “Blue Jay”, is an esteemed producer and musical artist from Atlanta, Georgia. He heads the music department of Global Film Studio and, with his team of award-winning musicians, Jay is composing and producing the music scores for the company’s films.

Blue Jay works with an all-star, world-class team out of Storm Music Studio in Atlantic Beach, Florida. Industry superstar Denny Leroux, who is known for working with the likes of Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra, Wilson Pickett, Whitney Houston, Bill Murray and Bo Diddley, leads the group that comprises iconic musicians such as Emmy Award Winner Jeff Alford (Jacksonville Symphony), drummer Mike Maple (The Judds), famed bassist Tommy Gilstrap (Tom Petty), guitarist James Hogan (Grammy Winner Paul Williams, Lee Ritenour and Wynonna Judd), pianist Kenny Levine (Bill Murray), and electric guitar player Johnny “The Claw” Piantadosi (Southside Johnny).

Jay has just released an album entitled We Need To Know (There’s Happiness In Our World); its cover song, by the same title, is a hit on Spotify and other music platforms. Reminiscent of We Are The World, the song is written, arranged, and produced by Jay who also sings lead vocals alongside six other acclaimed vocalists: Kathryn Shipley, Dee Rock, Jackson Snelling, Wendy K, Revele, and Greg Roberts. Award winning fine-artist Margo Buccini is the designer of the band’s CD covers, and is the background vocalist on the album.

We Need To Know is one of the songs slated to be part of the foundation of the soundtrack for Global Film Studio’s film trilogy.

Davide De Stefano is an exceptionally talented and experienced film set designer who received numerous international awards. Davide has worked in locations worldwide including India, Morocco, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Europe and Turkey. He has experience in various film genres such as drama, thriller, noir and period.

De Stefano worked with many distinguished directors such as Carlo Lizzani, Pupi Avati, Francesca Archibugi, Dario Argento, Roberto Faenza, Maurizio Nichetti, Lamberto Bava, Ricky Tognazzi, Paolo Virzì, Peter Greenaway, Catherine Hardwicke, Kim Manners, Greg Yaitanes, John Gray, Zeke Pinheiro, Mark Roemmich, Nana Obiri and Eric Howell.

“Everybody can judge a movie from what they see and hear, but there are sometimes certain circumstances, motivations and facts regarding a film that we have to know to fully understand its content.

The first screenplay Pischiutta ever wrote signalled the director’s life-long affection for the sea; in Retrospective, the blue Aegean Sea becomes the backdrop of the story.
