Mission Statement

Decrescendo counts on a diverse and enthusiastic team who are looking forward to making a difference in the world. This passion project focuses on mental health, the risks of dealing with an obsession, the conflict of letting go vs. holding on, and its impact on individuals in our society.

The Story

⚠ We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Because of COVID-19, we will be taking special measures in order to keep the safety of our cast and crew as our number one priority. We will be updating our audience with the next steps. This is a scary and isolating time we are living in, and so many of us have turned to television and films to make us feel less alone. As creators, we want to continue to tell stories that will inspire when the world needs it most. If you can't donate at this time; liking, sharing, and following Decrescendo on our social media platforms will mean the world to us. We appreciate your support from the bottom of our hearts!

 

Decrescendo is the story of Drako, a former homicide detective, confessing to a priest how a suspected serial killer ruined his life and career. At a point, Drako was the top detective in LA until he obsessed over this case, allowing his life to fall apart when he discovers Martin, a renowned concert pianist who becomes the main suspect after helping with the investigation. 

 

Noir films are one of our favorite things. Once we came up with the idea and we wrote down in paper, we reached out to some amazing creatives, told them about the idea and ask them to be part of the process of making this film a reality, they said yes and here we are!  

Studying and understanding more about obsession and the human psyche is fascinating. This self-destructive behavior is something that could affect any of us at almost any point in our lives, and if we don't know what's the best way to deal with it, it could end up affecting our mental health and our relationships with people.

Our protagonist, Drako, has a hard time realizing how much his obsession affecting his personal life. He justifies his behavior and rejects help from others, which takes him to dark places. 

For us, filmmaking is about education and awareness in topics that affect our day by day. But don't worry, we love great cinematic masterpieces and wonderful actors, just like you!

 

Se7en, Chinatown, Nightcrawler, Snowpiercer, Zodiac, are just some of the movies that inspired us with their amazing stories and look!
