This drama thriller is set to release this summer and has a run time of 1 hour and 40 minutes. The Music Island (2020) is currently in post-production. The movie is written and directed by Cosmin Zaharia.
I did not get a chance to watch the entirety of this film, but I did get a chance to talk to the director, writer, producer and star of the film, Cosmin Zaharia.
I asked Cosmin to tell me a little more about how he got the idea for this film. He told me that while he was on a vacation in Ibiza in 2017, he was inspired to write this movie. He loved the location, the environment and the feelings he got while he was in Ibiza. So, he started to write a script.
He loved the location so much, that he decided to get a job in Ibiza working as a PR while he worked on writing the script. When he was done writing, he went back to London, only to return to Ibiza in 2018 to start the production of this film. He started the filming process then, but returned to London to finish casting for the final roles.
Once he found the right cast, he started filming the next parts of his movie in Bucharest in February 2019. Later that year, he also filmed in London, during the summer. By September, the whole production of the film was finished and was ready for post-production.
The trailer was released this January and the post-production process of the film will be done this April. After that, the film will be submitted to international film festivals all over the world and will be appearing in cinemas. This film was made without the help of sponsors and was done completely with Cosmin’s own funding.
The Music Island is also Cosmin’s first feature film. That is a major accomplishment and a display of his determination and ambition! You can check out his IMDb page here.
