If you remember, last March I posted a story including a diary from the set of Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island written by Argentinean filmmaker Celine Murga as she was able to observe the whole of the entire shot as a laureate of the 2008 Rolex Mentor and Protege Arts Initiative. Now Scorsese is taking Celina under his wing as I just received the following press release:
The two became very close during their year together and Scorsese even provided detailed advice on the treatment and script that Celina developed. Martin’s support and letter of introduction to the international film community is opening many new doors as Celina asks for funding for her third feature film. Scorsese has also expressed interest in being involved with the editing of Celina’s film, which could prove very interesting and exciting.
