    About me

    I have spent considerable time in the last four years working with film, video and animation. I have experience working in several different areas of production, from camera to motion graphics on everything from documentaries to experimental shorts. I am equipped with Final Cut Pro 7.0.3, a Canon 60D (same guts as a 7D) DSLR and sound recording equipment at home so I would be able to work remotely if necessary.

    I graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design's Film/Animation/Video department. Most of my schoolwork was devoted to working on technical skills, including cinematography with both film and HD video cameras, on-set and studio sound recording, lighting and post-production. My last year of school was devoted entirely to a short film that I wrote, directed, edited and produced. I designed and built lighting and special effects rigs for specific shots, as well as operating the camera for most of the shots. I used After Effects for compositing and also worked on the sound design in Pro Tools and Logic. This thesis short was an official selection of NewFilmmakers New York Winter Series 2012.

    While interning and later freelancing at MTV On-Air Promos in New York, I spent much of my time working in After Effects and Final Cut Pro on graphics bumpers and short spots. I have also designed several posters for the RISD Museum in Photoshop and Illustrator; I also have some experience with InDesign and Premiere. Since graduating, I have self-produced, written and directed two shorts, a spot for a small neighborhood store and as well as co-produced a documentary for Associazione Geografica per l'Ambiente e il Territorio (AGAT). On these projects I also worked as cameraman, editor, colorist and VFX astist. I have also produced a few interactive installations using Processing and Arduino controllers.

    I have a dual US/EU (Italy) citizenship, so there are no legal hurdles to my employment in the UK.
