The two producers first met when Roberto shot his two shorts, Bassa Marea and Alice, which Carla line produced. Both films were presented at the Venice Film Festival in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
Young Films debuted co-producing the documentary Fuoristrada directed by Elisa Amoruso, winner of the Special mention at the Rome Film Festival in 2013. In 2014, Young produced the short film Casarola directed by Lorenzo Castore, a tribute to the Bernardo Bertolucci’s family home.
