The climb of a successful actor and businessman : Enzo Zelocchi: 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.
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.

Zelocchi spoke about working with master photographer Bjoern Kommerell. “I love that guy,” he said. “Bjoern knows how to direct you and he gets me. The quality of his work obviously is way above average. He is top-notch, and one of the best. He has a great heart, he is a loving person and he genuinely cares. He loves to capture random moments and I love how he plays with lights. His amazing talent is being able to capture the ‘real you’ in the moment. Bjoen is one of a kind.” For his fans and supporters, he said, “You surprise me every day, especially when I receive certain fan messages that impress me and move me.
