Armand Assante On Set of
              "Goat"


Armand Assante working on his own film about farming....


From shooting scenes in Tappan for the movie "Goat".
This information says that William DeMeo's role is Bobby Baldano and Armand Assante is performing Joseph, Bobby Baldano's father.

Photos from scenes in the Barber Shop. Director Borghese just moved back to Rockland, he says:"There are just so many great locations in the area that ... are unique and original and haven't been seen before."

Armand Assante signed on about a year ago, citing Borghese's friendship and talent as reasons.

"He has a natural gift for sending up the whole crime genre," Assante says. "I think he has a great sense of humor. He has a funny twist on things."
Borghese plans to return to Tappan in May to film outdoor scenes in and around the area, and at the Oak Tree Inn when the weather improves.

Armand Assante, who owns a farm in Orange County, has similar hopes for film production growth in the Hudson Valley. He's working on his own film about farming in the '40s.

"I would love to be able to spearhead some kind of small studio here," he says. "I literally have lived and traveled all over the planet. ... The Hudson Valley is probably one of the most beautiful places on the planet, and many people don't know that."

"Mr. Assante is one of the more sincere and passionate people out there.
One things for sure, you'll always get a straight and intelligent answer out of this guy" says the young man (Joe Belcastro) that made this very interesting interview, asking Armand Assante some questions we aren't use to hear about.


Armand Asante tells about the conditions for actors now-a-days and how hard it is to get through with a creative project in the movieworld.
"...I have a project I've been working on for awhile and I met with one of the biggest producers in television. She told me to come back when I have the pilot and 26 episodes and they'll consider it. Not many actors have that kind of bread to fund that sort of thing. Especially in the current economic climate of the industry." he says...

He also tells he only got one horse now back at his farm in Upstate New York...

still don't recommend the acting business...


In the end Debra Markowitz give Armand Assante The Creative Achivement Award.
Armand Assante gives us insight into the difficult and time consuming preparation that goes on before a role is rehearsed and his philosophy about the author's work which he considers as a sheet of music and you have to follow the punctuation in the original creation to find the right character for your performance.
He also complains that all must go so quickly these days, acting is not about results but the procces of deeb involvement into the role and lots of research and it takes time.

in connection with his participation at the
Second ASTANA International Action Film Festival

Armand Assante, who took part in the Second ASTANA International Action Film Festival, gave an interview to Tengrinews.kz on July 3.

Armand Assante says about his role as Nietzsche:
..................“I played Nietzsche in one movie (When Nietzsche Wept).
Each line, each word written by the author, were citing Nietzsche's works and it was quite difficult.
I worked with a German translator to understand the real depth and original meaning of Nietzsche's writings.
I was given a book to learn Nietzsche's story and I highlighted some paragraphs in the book. In the end they turned out to be the paragraphs given to me in the movie,” the actor shared his memories.

“I think that this book is one of the most brilliant books ever written. As this is an eternal problem inside a person. Falling in love. I think this had a direct affect on the person he became, on his character. As he was always absorbed in his thoughts, never stopped thinking and lived like an anchorite. He was always questioning himself about the things he was writing about,” Assante told about his impressions.

“For me he is the closest person in literature. Just like Van Gogh in painting,” he said.......

With the title: "On Set with Armand Assante" Bradenton.com
  ....brings more information about the making of the thriller "Blind Pass".
We are on set at the beautiful, sprawling grounds of Sue Brielmann’s Shady Oaks Farm.

Assante was in Manatee County to play a rich, powerful former athlete battling multiple sclerosis in the drama/thriller “Blind Pass.”.....

......The scene Assante pitched Thursday night to the filmmaker found him giving a speech about coping with the disease, the idea being that in the film it could be shared online to help uplift others suffering from MS......

more to the movie then what had been asked of him.
“What inspired me was watching so many people who actually do speak about these conditions that are just horrific,” said Assante, who leaned forward and lifted a fist for emphasis. ...
......Assante, who worked in Manatee for two days last week, plays the father of the film’s star, 19-year-old Bradenton resident Danielle White. He agreed to do “Blind Pass” after being intrigued by Tatone’s script.
“I was really chilled by it and I don’t say that lightly,” Assante said. “I read a lot of material. I turn down a lot of material. What I liked about this is that, that girl (White’s character), turned out to be who she was. That gave me the chills.”....

Quotes from interview:
 "Montevideo" has the atmosphere of Italian films from the fifties.
He shows us ordinary people and their desire to achieve success. It is a time of innocence and hope, not lies and neuroza, which is now widely used in the film industry. Rivalry between two young men did what what touched me the most. I think their relationship is essential to the film - said the actor.....

He said it was a big fan of Serbian films and has even contributed to the decision that a Serbian film wins at film festival in Ukraine:
- All my life I follow what happens in the film industry worldwide.
So I watched the "Pretty Village, Pretty Flame", in which Dragan game.
 I was impressed by the quality of the film. I know that I watched and other Serbian films, only now I can not remember how they are translated.
Of course, I followed all the Kusturica radio.
There is a little curiosity attached to me and Serbian cinema: the Festival of Kiev as a jury member I voted for your film, "Huddersfield" and later, the authors presented the award for best film.
The actor said that he wants to come to Serbia to "taste" of the Serbian hospitality,

Future plans of filming


"This is so you can make us some money,"says Major Poston and hands Armand Assante a cash clip emblazoned with the Friendly City sunglasses logo.

In December, Assante spent time in Lakewood Ranch acting in "Blind Pass," the second independent, feature-length film by Sarasota-based Midnight Pass Productions and writer/producer/director Steve Tatone.

The actor shot a couple more scenes with the local filmmaker at the same location on Wednesday.
"We're in post-production," Tatone said by phone Monday. "We should have the trailer ready in a few days." (Yes, he has been talking about that for long now....???)

Assante participated Friday in the 16th annual Phil Galvano Golf Classic at the Legacy Golf Club in Lakewood Ranch. Proceeds from the golf tournament benefit Manatee County schools through the Manatee Education Foundation and its programs.

"I Only accept projects I'm passionate about" says Armand Assante in this interview made for the spanish Da Cultura Yocio.
Since June last year (2011), various towns and areas of Tenerife have been modified to stage perfectly the Montevideo of the 30s. It is the team's second visit to the island, in which Santa Cruz and La Laguna have given way to the historic town of La Orotava, which have become one of the most emblematic buildings, the Liceo Taoro in a luxurious Uruguay who stayed in the Yugoslavs.
The similarities between the architecture of Tenerife has been one of the main reasons for choosing the island enclave.

According to the director, Dragan Bjelogrlic, this epic sports teaches youth an uplifting message that goes beyond the football field. Armand Assante adds that it is "a story about trust. I saw the movie and I was very impressed. "
Asked about the possibilities of working with a Spanish director, as Almod¢var says it is quite hard to find good material, and if, in addition to this, there is a good director: "It's a blessing."
