Documentaries, screenplays, production assistance

Writing a script

Writing a script is not like writing a story or a novel!

Writing a script is to write thoughts and feelings already seen turned into sounds and actions or even silence. A script is a bridge from the insights into into images, music or even silence… 

Shooting a documentary

Shooting a documentary is to unveal every time a bit of the unknown to yourself and those who will watch it. Shooting a documentary is to come into a subject and let yourself being deeply touched by it, still before you start to work on it.   Someone that deals with information, as well as an artist, enters into a heuristic process first: he/she starts a research following his/her intuition, which comes first. He/She then makes a mental and insight journey where his/her energy, creativity, courage and empathy are necessarily all involved if he/she wants to reach a good result. And a good result is when a documentary is able to inform minds and touch souls. 

Cultural assistance, permits, translations for film production

Curiosity, creativity, passion have always driven me to study deeper and deeper many issues related to humanities. Over the years, thanks to my multiple studies and experiences I have accumulated an interdisciplinary knowledge on art, literature, archeology, psychology, pedagogy, Art education in museums. Consequently, my assistance to foreign film productions has been: translation, research on different issues, assistance in multiple cultural fields.  I have also helped them with an appropriate search for suitable places to shoot some specific scenes and with the request for permits.

Cinema has always been one of my passions as well as theatre. I grew up in a small village in the South of Italy where there was only one movie theatre. And I really think now I was lucky as I had free entrance! I went to watch a movie at least once a week and to the theatre once a month. And I could not wait for those few hours happily spent there. So, when I attended  university I chose to pass a few exams on the “seven art”  in contemparary art, but also on the history of cinema and in particular Italian cinema,  and  on the realtionship between cinema and paintings. All very interesting subjects for me!

Very soon, writing for cinema became a strong desire that I first cultivated personally. But later, I felt necessary to attend a cinema school  and take lessons and workshops on scripts (one of them with Ugo Chiti) and documentary. This happened when I met the Italian director Maurizio Giordano. After he read some of my writings, he asked me to write for him and his association, the Baruffa film. A few years later I started to make my own videos.

Since then, as a cultural expert in Rome, I have assisted a few film productions like the Big Questions, an Austrialian film production  when they shot a documentary in Rome.

As a member of Comune-info, Association of common people (an Italian online bottom-up approch to information), I was requested of shooting a documentary on the first meeting of suitainable and inclusive economy in Latium. The documentary is called “Raccontiamola giusta”. Hereunder, please enjoy 5 minutes of the whole documentary:
