About me

I am a passionate individual with a stern ambition to become a filmmaker/director, working hard to achieve it. Having studied Film in three different countries has informed my thinking and understanding of this Art, while in the meantime helped me develop some fundamental skills. I am proud to have had the chance to direct four short films as part of my degree, and to have helped and participated on some classmates' projects. I have remarkable experience in managing the production of a short film, from developing the idea, to filming, editing and promoting it. As I have just graduated from University, I have an enormous desire to test myself and everything that I've learned, ready to give all myself to my first employment. What I might lack in experience, I will compensate in desire to learn and ambition. These two have allowed me to overcome the difficulties that come when leaving your home country and to get where I am now: within a year from leaving Italy I had managed to obtain the right English certificates to be accepted at University, and three years later I'm graduating among the top students in my class with a First Class Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree. I never let challenges discourage me: on the contrary, I see them as a perfect way to prove myself and what I can do. Working in retail for the past two years has reinforced this attitude: things can get out of control, but working closely with your team and sometimes even taking the reins of it assures the accomplishment of any task. The capacity of working in a team has been a constant skill in my life: from playing basketball from very young age to group projects in high school and University, I value teamwork as a fundamental practice, not only in a work environment, but most of all in a Film environment. In my three years at the University of Reading I have eagerly learnt about Film (and in a minor way Theatre and Television), about its history, theory and practice, and I have always been very committed to the practical side of the course, and had the chance to direct four short films (2m, 3m, 8m, 15m): these projects have given me a very good sense of how to craft a film/video: from conceiving and developing and idea and script in pre-production, to working on a set and filming, to eventually edit and publicise the finished product.
