“When your eye rests on a frame, on television, at the movies, on a smartphone, your eye is connected to the brain, to the heart.  It conveys emotions. An action scene, a drama, a comedy, a commercial. Each frame is a message. The better the shot, the more surprising the technique is and the stronger that connection is. The secret, perhaps, is all here. To amaze with perfection, with clarity, with technological innovation that only genuine professionalism and dedication can bring to the rich art of motion pictures. This is my goal: to provide passion, expertise and precision in what I do. Beware, though: it is not a “skill” as you would read in a Curriculum Vitae. It is my way of being. I began as a Stedi operator in 2008, and after some television experience (Deejay Television), I decided to follow through with my inclinations and my passions. To search, almost obsessively, for that connection between the eye and the heart, through the right shot, with appropriate technique, at the perfect moment. As you’ve seen, the space, intended as the physical place, does not interest me. I have faced 12 hour takes under 40 degree heat and in the rain. With the cold, in Italy, in Europe, in the world. But nothing has wearied me. Do you know why? Perhaps you have already guessed.

That’s right: because what matters to me, is to build bridges between the eye and the heart. For me, for related professionals, for everyone.”
