Meet Enzo Zelocchi and some of his achievements: Enzo Zelocchi is an Italian/American, Hollywood film producer, actor and businessman, an award winner as actor, producer, social Media influencer, businessman and founder of A-Medicare with over 33 movie awards in Film Festivals and semifinalist for an Academy Award nomination with the project “My Little Princess”.
Tell me about The First Secret? Enzo: The story behind First Secret is: how is it possible that the Hispanic and Latin community really only have Zorro, as a superhero, who isn’t really a superhero? He’s basically Batman without technology. I started to dig in, and look for a superhero. So, I found a guy who is actually the real-life inspiration for Ian Fleming’s James Bond. We were able to cut a trailer, which I decided to release March 2020. People told me it was a bad time. No, it is the best time. Everyone is on their phones and they don’t know what to do. We were the second most viewed video worldwide on Instagram. I didn’t have high expectations; I just wanted to touch the ground. The character is a guy from the Dominican Republican, who was like James Bond, stationed in Paris, and he was friends with John Kennedy, hanging out with the most beautiful women in the world, driving nice cars. He had a very interesting life. So, I decided to make him a superhero.
Enzo Zelocchi is best known for his success with the movie My Little Princess (over 33 movie awards at film festivals and a 2010 semi-finalist for an Academy Award nomination), but also for his consideration to star as the new Zorro in Zorro Reborn, the development for the first Hollywood Hispanic superhero “Starlight Man – The First Secret” and as executive producer and vice president of development at Crossroads Entertainment. He is also listed as a producer of Find Me Guilty, starring Vin Diesel, which was directed by the Academy Award winner Sidney Lumet; and as producer of Shadow of Doubt, starring Melanie Griffith and Tom Berenger.
Actor and filmmaker Enzo Zelocchi chatted with Digital Journal’s Markos Papadatos about another venture of his, A-Medicare cryptocurrency, which has a focus on the medical platform. He is on track to becoming the next generation of Jeff Bezos meets Elon Musk. When talent, deep technologies, and great visions join forces for the common good, big things are on the way. This is the case of actor and producer Enzo Zelocchi. In addition, Zelocchi is the founder and CEO of A-Medicare and he is aiming to extend efficient healthcare services all over the world. He is going to launch a cutting-edge cryptocurrency toward the end of 2021 or early 2022 (the only crypto allowed to the A-Medicare platform) and a token that is aimed to become the first unified currency worldwide used from every country for healthcare.
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.
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.
