The latest Enzo Zelocchi – Afternoon in Paris promising extraordinary media launches: Was there an ‘aha moment’ when you know this was the career path you were most passionate about? My ‘aha moment’ was after a couple of years of modeling and commercials when I got booked in a TV show. That experience captured my heart. Read additional information at Enzo Zelocchi.
He opened up about My Little Princess, which he wrote, directed, produced, and starred in. The film earned a glowing review from Digital Journal, and rightfully so. “I gave a piece of my heart in that project,” he admitted. “It was an interesting journey and a very good experience for me. I watched everything through the eye of a young father and I looked at this tragedy of how a family lives through it, which is horrible.” “I put so much hard work and sweat in it. I tried to be very spiritual with it, and I wanted it to be authentic. The message in My Little Princess is love, faith, and family and I wanted to project that. I was very blessed since it earned me a lot of awards. Movies are like miracles, especially when they are successful enough to be seen,” he said.

How did the project of The Source come to be? Tell us about your involvement with it. The Source was originally conceived as a movie franchise. Due to COVID-19, the entertainment industry changed quite a bit in terms of distribution (hopefully temporarily), so I turned it into a TV show. I originally wrote The Source in 2018, and when COVID-19 started, I began to deeply develop all the projects that I thought would be a good fit for this current time in our society. I’m basically the creator, writer (along with others on the team), producer, and lead actor. When the trailer of The Source received over 200 million views, I understood that I was on the right track.
The Latino/Hispanic market has been very neglected in my opinion. From a cultural standpoint, strategically, it’s pretty well structured to be inspirational for young people. I’m more about empowering people. That’s what I believe that people who work in entertainment – besides entertaining – should also be role models. Let’s talk about The Source. What is the premise and what is your character? Enzo: That one is more Mad Max meets The Crow. The character, basically, is an alien with a humanoid body. He is there to train and protect the next generation of warriors against space aliens that go from planet to planet to destroy. Since my character’s planet has been destroyed, he and the oracles are hiding on Earth and training these kids. Obviously, they have to find these kids, fight corruption of local politicians. It’s like a post-apocalyptic scenario – obviously more around destroyed cities and travel between parallel dimensions. See extra information at https://imdb.me/enzozelocchi.
Enzo Zelocchi was honored over 5 Times as Best Actor, 4 Times Best Outstanding Performance, 4 Times Best Director, 3 Times Best Writer and Best Producer and at the California Film Awards 2010 he won Grand Winner for Best Family Film. Other awards include the following film festivals: in 2010 Hollywood Variety Movie Awards as Best Actor and Best Outstanding Performance, in 2011 at the Golden Indie Movie Awards also as Best Actor and Best Outstanding Performance; as well as at the Hong Kong Best Film Awards (hongkongbestfilmawards.com) as Best Actor, Best Outstanding Performance and Best Original Content.
Zelocchi defined the word success as “be loved, love and have enough money to live a life that I like to live and not worry about future or tomorrow or anything.” “To have a comfort zone and to be in peace with yourself. Love is the most important but money always helps,” he said. Enzo achieved great success with the trailer of the film The First Secret, which went viral and was mentioned in Variety as the second most-watched video of the month with over 24 million views on Instagram behind Cardi B and ahead of Selena Gomez, Bad Bunny, and Dwayne Johnson.
