Products and Technologies

I am a Swiss filmmaker, living in the Italian-speaking canton Ticino. I graduated from CISA film school in Lugano and then continued my studies in Geneva, graduating from HEAD, specialising in film direction.

I worked as a video maker for a photographic press agency and a news website, shooting and editing videos daily. This taught me to edit and shoot quickly, to avoid unnecessary footage, to get to the core of a story without getting caught in irrelevant details. Working with photographers also significantly improved my cinematography and composition skills.

I shot and directed two documentaries that have been broadcasted on Swiss national TV and screened at international film festivals. They have been produced by Amka Films, an accomplished independent production company. 

Currently, I am involved in a 4-documentary series with Dutch production company DOXY and with a new project with Amka Films, to be shot in Japan.

I am constantly trying to keep up to date with the latest technology, but I think that this is worth only when paired with good storytelling and cinematography.
