About me
I'm Valentina, an independent Documentary Filmmaker and Video Editor with background in Graphic Design. I have a Bachelor Degree in Visual Communication and a big passion for Film, Photography and Art. I specialised in audiovisual, I have basics in Motion Graphics and a huge passion for Film Editing. I like travelling, reason why majority of my projects are Documentaries from the world where I show the different realities I meet. People, stories and emotions are at the core of my work and life. I believe to have a strong sensibility when I edit, my empathy is important for the approach of every work I do. My work includes "An Extraordinary Place" an award winning biopic about a blind man and how he sees the world that surrounds him. I'm currently working on a short documentary about India, and on a series of short documentaries about people of London. My first photography book “Beyond Camden Market” got published in November 2020 and achieved its sales target in less than 48 hours.

  • Portrait of Places
    Portrait of PlacesWhen I travel I always focus on people and different cultures of the world - the smells, the sounds, the food, stories of the people, their behaviours, the different customs, the essence of the place, the feeling I have while I'm there and the emotions I bring home with me after I'm gone. In this series of "video trips" my objective is to recreate the essence of each place sharing the feeling and the memory I kept of it. Next videos to come are portraits of: Turkey, Peru and Spain.

    London, United KingdomFull Time
    My work encloses mainly photography and video documentaries. I like travelling, people and the stories they convey - my documentaries are usually stories from the world where I show the different cultures & realities I meet. I believe to be an empathic person and really connected to people, reason why in my documentaries emotions are the key. I'm currently working on a documentary about India and I'll be starting soon a new series of documentaries about portraits of people of London.
