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.
We are all one and with love and common sense, we can get things done. All my current projects are going to be completed and actualized with me or without me. Changes are inevitable and the best is yet to come,” he added. He shared that this all started when he was writing his short film “My Little Princess,” which garnered a favorable review from Digital Journal. I got started down this path of research when writing the ‘My Little Princess’ film, released in 2010,” said Zelocchi. “Considering the plight of a father whose daughter has terminal cancer, I had to take a close look at what the options are like for real people in similar situations. It broke my heart.

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.
