"Never forget who you are."
I was born in Marcianise and I am an independent Italian filmmaker currently living and working in Toronto, Canada.
My interests and passions range from music to drawing, from cinema to photography. Since childhood until the end of my college studies, I was self-taught in these arts, spending my free time making shorts and cartoons both in 3D and in stop motion.
Due to the big financial crisis that touched Italy in the early 2010s and the lack of opportunities to follow my passions, I emigrated to Canada in 2015. Here I studied at Sheridan Colellege and faced many practical and personal challenges. However, I cherish the hardships that I went through as they turned out to be the most valuable lessons in my personal life and my career. I am very greatfull of the experience I had and I am still having so far.
During these years I directed BACHELORETTE (2015), a 4-minute romantic LGBT comedy, and BATTER JUDGEMENT (2016), While working on these projects, I had the pleasure of working with multicultural crews, and while some language barriers presented challenges at times, I enjoyed the experience because it opened my mind to different points of view and allowed me to learn more about different cultures.
In 2017 Batter judgement has been accepted at the Italian Contemporary Film Festival of Toronto. It is a short film with horror elements for teens based on an ancient Italian Fairy tale called “Lo Zio Lupo”
In 2017, my experimental film JAJKO won as BEST AMATEUR SHORT
at CASERTA FILM FESTIVAL (Italy)
Today I work as freelancer Stop Motion Animator and Editor and I have several clients including Spin Master, Target, Hatchimal and Blue Ant Media.
