Hello, I'm Peter Valentino, writer producer and director of the film Sophia

I have been a musician all my life and have been the leader of many rock bands over the years. When I discovered acting in college, I looked for ways to combine music and theater. After years of gigs and touring with my band, Neon Venus, we decided to found the Neon Venus Art Theatre in Las Vegas, and then started another theater in Hollywood. The project Sophia is an outgrowth of the Neon Venus Art Theatre in Hollywood and my acting class there. After years of acting on stage and off, and teaching actors, I decided to move into the director/producer role. Also, having performed Improv onstage in New York City I have a thirst for comedy. Thus, the film Sophia is a comedy about a young rockstar. What could be more perfect?

The principal characters in the film are mostly played by actors who have been my students for years. Eden Elysium, who plays Sophia, has been my student since she was 10 years old. She started attending my Saturday class with her mother Devon Rachelle, who plays many roles in the film and is co-directing as well.

The film Sophia is an organic work of a family of actors in Hollywood who are willing to do what it takes to make an entertaining and thought-provoking feature film.

Your generosity will help us realize our goal of releasing our feature film in November 2014.

What We Need 

We are asking for $3,000 to complete the film, which will go towards:

  • Production elements (Eden's guitar, crew, props)
  • Postproduction (assistant editor, special effects editor)
  • Distribution (DVD manufacturing) 
  • Music (recording, mixing, mastering, CD manufacturing,) 

The Impact

This film is very meaningful to us and we feel it is important to share it with the world. It shows how a young girl can focus her energies and become powerful. Sophia becomes an agent for change as she brings back the power of the wise woman in the person of a little girl. The film delivers a message of positive inspiration for all those who want to look at life from a different angle. 

Our film is a cooperative effort coming out of a group of committed actors in Hollywood. We really appreciate your help in making this dream a reality.
