CREATIVE DIRECTOR – 3d SUPERVISOR

Born in Florence after a diploma in Foreign Languages and a graduation in Political and Social Sciences , I decided to study a Master in 3D Animation in Barcelona, just to mix up a bit more my carrer path. Working as a touristic guide during the day and as a barman during the night, I eventually achieved to save enough money to pay  the fee and to fully focus myself into the animation world. For more then a decade,  I’ve been working in 3d tv shows and feature films for several studios around european capitals such as Madrid, Barcelona, Dublin.

Now my challenge is Florence.

CAMERA – PHOTOGRAPHER – PRODUCTION

A strong background in audiovisual media for institutions, commercial and fashion industry. In 2015 I’ve been Local Manager in the latest documentary production by Michael Moore: “Where to Invade Next”. In June of the same year I was the Fixer and Photographer for Vice U.S.A. leading the american staff through Rome, Naples and Casal di Principe to document the production of a tv show based on the novel of Roberto Saviano. In my free time I use to go in humanitarian missions in some hotspots of the world. My last experience as embedded was in Afghanistan. Once I left the “Green Zone”, I blended myself in the crowd, and I brought out a documentary ” Money Market. Donne, armi e oppio a Kabul” (“Money Market. Women, weapons and opium in Kabul”).

DIRECTOR – VFX ARTIST – SCRIPTWRITER

From Malaga, Spain, I’ve spent quite few years working in Barcelona and Madrid. Now I’m in Ireland.

More than 10 years working as a passionate professional. During this decade I had the chance to work in several projects, assuming different roles and positions inside the production: animator, vfx artist, scriptwriter and director my latest 2 projects. I’ve really enjoyed and learned a lot from every single opportunity I had, even if, after all, I start to think that scriptwriting is what I really love. I believe that the creative process behind characters and their stories is a wonderful job and animation is probably the more effective way to express it.
