Michele Bizzi - filmmaker
Born above the Garda Lake in 1985, he chose Milan as his playground. He began his career as assistant director and sound designer for live theatre, but after coordinating post-production for various cinema projects, he decided to create his own video factory with producer Claudia Di Lascia, today an award-winning creative production and post-production Company active on several multi-language projects.
His works range from short films, to advertising, documentaries – especially of social interest, fashion-films: Michele's marked creativity, his great care for the aesthetics with his great professionalism and technical precision, soon led him to sign the direction of projects for brands such as Armani, Guess, Panasonic, Ferrari. The experience in commercial productions leads him to develop a composed and polished style, which he adapts by capturing the essential language of the various genres he confronts. Michele won several awards for his works and received nominations at internationally acknowledged festivals. His Series’ pilot Selfers - which he wrote and directed, was selected as finalist for the Script Pipeline’s First Look Project. His fashion-film Casamorati was listed on Forbes magazine as one of the best of 2017.
Between directing and acting, he can’t decide on his favorite. He strongly thinks that a sense of humor is a hint of intelligence.
