BIO

Get Nicola full Resume/project list

 

Born and raise in Italy I was always intrigued by photography. After deep studies of cinema theories and practices I had the honor to study with Vittorio Storaro and Luca Bigazzi: they opened my heart and mind to cinematography.

I am a visionary Director of Photography with 12 years of experience in feature films, commercials, music videos and documentaries.

 

I never repeat methods that I used in films before: I always strives to create an original, unrepeatable form of art in every project. Rhythm, harmony and dynamism in the composition of an image are what makes my lighting and camerawork unique.

 

With an in-depth understanding of photography and motion pictures storytelling (from pre- to post-production), I always bring a passion for problem solving. My versatility encompass extensive knowledge of lighting and modern filmmaking process, concerning most workflows, softwares and camera systems, both film (16/35mm) and digital.

My style is unique and I always adapt it to the story, to budget and to the director’ vision.

 

My goal? Making the story and the Director’ vision come true, no matter what!

Knowledge of: Steadicam, cranes and Jib arms, dollies and sliders, shoulder supports, tripods and heads, suction mount, car mounts, green and blue screen, rain towers and special FX.

Extensive knowledge lighting and post-production softwares for both editing and color correction: Adobe CC creative suite, Final Cut PRO and X, DaVinci Resolve, REDCINEX and more.
