OBJECTIVES

Movies are the strongest weapon the human civilization has ever invented

Combining all the arts withing itself a movie is the most influential force we  have in our hands

I do not intend to use this force for romantic comedies 

Being a filmmaker is a huge responsibility

Work History

CinemaDaMare

June 2016Present

Production Management

CinemaDaMare is a film festival in Italy. For two months and a half, the festival travels through Italy, changing location every week for 6 days, in which the filmmakers shoot their short films.
My occupation was to keep track of the production.
At the start of every week we would hold a production meeting, discussing the pro's and cons of the previous week. I arranged and kept track of the lights and sound equipment schedule, the crews and film requirements. 
At the end of the week , there is the Weekly Competition- a screening of the films made during the last 6 days. My obligation then was to judge and select the best performances and thus give out special prices as for : Best DOP ; Director: Actor ; Screenwriter : Set Design; Video Editor: Sound Design 
Till this moment I am occupied with the development of the Festival
