Kukulida House Project: Radio Feature Production

The production, spanning May 2021, bridged Dresden (Fede Menegatti) and Orvieto (Arystan Petzold). Interviews were conducted via phone, WhatsApp, and in person in Dresden. Following three weeks of intensive work involving interviews, editing, and music recordings, the production concluded.

Crafted as a radio feature, the piece underwent a narrative evolution, comprising ten scenes, skillfully intertwining short cuts into a cohesive story. Humorous interludes, evident in the examples above, punctuated these scenes.
