DIRECTOR of COMMERCIALS & BRANDED FILMS.
Current Director’s Reel for Roberto Serrini
I love creating content, plain and simple. I started in Photography at Brooks Institute, fell madly in love with Film Theory at UC Santa Barbara, earned my reputation as an award winning commercial editor, and have combined all this experience to evolve into a director with a unique set of powerful tools that makes it easy to love what I do.
You may notice that I open my focus to a variety of genres and brands unlike most directors, which not only keeps my creative input fresh, but also brings a constant innovative approach to my projects. While I’m proud of the large scale work I’ve done for global brands, I love staying active shooting, editing, and traveling creating content; a practice that keeps my commercial projects streamlined & fluid since I’m well versed in all aspects of production and know really what it means to “fix it in post”. While I love offering a strong vision to my clients, it’s the collaboration of creative minds that drives my passion to always elevate projects to the next level.
Ultimately, if you’re not having a good time then chances are you’re not working with me.
