CV_Film Editor

 

Born and raised in Italy, I was captured by the film world since childhood, watching all kind of movies. 

Bilingual editor very keen when it comes to sound due to my music background as DJ and because I grew upwatching my stepdad's works as Sound Designer.

 

In 2010, I enrolled at "La Sapienza" University, in Rome, for a Film Theory and Techniques course. 

In 2014 I graduated discussing a thesis on Nicolas Winding Refn's works.

 

In 2011, I entered in the new film school "Scuola d'Arte Cinematografica Gian Maria Volonté" in Rome, where I studied film editing and developed storytelling and technical skills. The romantic short film "The Man With A White Scarf", directed by David Ambrosini got my diploma.

During those years I also edited some shorts, like "The Haend", a horror short written, shot and edited in only 48 hours, and various other short documentaries.

 

Still a student, I started working as trainee editor in some movies: "Le Quattro Volte" (The Four Times) directed by Michelangelo Frammartino, "Diaz: don't clean up this blood" directed by Daniele Vicari and "Smetto Quando Voglio" (I can quit whenever I want) directed by Sydney Sibilia.

 

In 2014, I moved to London to start my career as assistant editor to become film editor.

I worked as assistant editor on the documentary "Mr Calzaghedirected by Vaughan Sivell, on the award winning short "Balconydirected by Toby Fell-Holden, on the debut feature "Prevenge" directed by Alice Lowe and on the documentary tv series "Unknown Male #1" directed by Hugo Berkeley and produced by BBC.

In 2016 I have been selected as a BAFTA Crew Participant and as a promising emerging talent to attend the BAFTA Guru Film Pro event.

In 2017, I worked as 2nd assistant editor on the upcoming crime/drama series "Trust" directed and produced by Danny Boyle for FX.

 

In 2018, I cut several shorts. "Benefits" directed by Edward Lomas (LSFF Official Selection), "Tergiversation" directed by Remo Pini and "Blood Out of a Stone" directed by Ben Allen (BFI Flare Official Selection).
