FILM DIRECTOR. DAD. BEAUTY LOVER. STORYDOER.
Born in Rome, I started my career as an editor, working with internationally renowned film directors, then moving on to directing myself, ranging from music videos, commercials, documentaries and, eventually, feature films. My first movie Pablo, innovative and unique in its kind, was pleasantly welcome at The Montreal Festival, Los Angeles American Film Institute Festival and several others, where it received positive reviews on Variety and The New York Times. In US and UK I directed advertising campaigns for Universal Pictures, BBC, Sony, Channel 4 and Turner.
My rockumentary Dallaltrapartedellaluna was the special event at the 64th Mostra del Cinema di Venezia and the feature film Grandfather Mountain was in competition in many festivals including Rome, London, Big Apple, Sundance, and was a winner at RIFF, Salerno, Napoli. I also worked on more ads music videos for Procter & Gamble, Chrysler, Universal, Emi and other companies. Artmbassy Gallery invited me to present some of my experimental visual works in Berlin and New York. I wrote and directed the very successful indie projects Gli Anni Verdi and Posto Ergo Sum, along with the Italian box office hit Faccio un salto all’Avana, for Medusa Cinema, and a prime time series for Mediaset. Lately, I directed There’s always a reason, the first european-chinese coproduction, massively released in China. Then I directed for the prime tv series Sirens and produced, directed, wrote and edited La Leggenda di Bob Wind, just released and selected in London Bafta Film Festival and Santander film festival. Recently I have completed principal photography for a pilot, near to be produced as complete series and I’m developing a mini drama series in UK. I currently live in Los Angeles, preparing my 5th movie, Moonbus.
