    About me

    My name is Alessandra D’Avanzo I am a British/Italian documentary producer with over 12 years of experience in broadcast media, short form, digital content and independent feature documentaries.

    During this time I has travelled across the world producing documentaries under the auspices of some of the United Kingdoms leading documentary directors on a broad range of specialist factual singles and feature length documentaries.

    Some of my most recent credits include: Emelie Sande, Frida Khalo: Under My Skin, Lost Kingdoms of South America, Easter Island: Mystries of a Lost World. And The Last Animal a feature documentary exploring the dangers of animal poaching across the world.

    Documentaries are my first love and I believe that telling real stories can help connect worlds so far apart through film.

    I am an ambitious, passionate and dedicated producer, I LOVE what I do.

    I was selected to be part of Future Producer School set up by Sheffield Documentary Festival and Bungalow Town Production. This course selects 15 of the most promising Producers in the UK. I am due to attend the Sheffield Documentary festival in june.

    Additional Information

    I am passionate about telling stories that are engaging, truthful and push boundaries. I believe that a strong producer should be able to engage with any subject matter and create an environment where talent and crew can flourish.

    The success of a finished film relies on the Producer’s strength to see the project from the very beginning to the end, by dealing with pressure’s that may arise during production.

    Being passionate about something you LOVE doing is imperative.

    I Love Producing.
