was reflecting on the social events occurred in 1968, the year when I was born:
big changes mined social stability: workers, strikes and students’ reaction
had repercussions on daily life and
on “ art “ as well.
search for something new was leading to a sort of maturity of the existing
styles and to the developing of the new ones.
experimental movies were a consequence of this.
The night of the living dead “ was emblematic with its clue of experimentalism
given by means of a humble and
devastating “black and white”,
with its anguishing minimalism
represented both by the main characters and by the “labourers” of Romero
during the working / production of the film.
was for me something that disturbed the peace of my teenager sleeping, together
with that other “ bloody pearl “ that was “ Dawn of the Dead “( 1978 ).
my natural attitude to wander from the point is getting me far from what I
attended the Professional Institute
for Electronics; this choice, together with the practical experiences in local
TV, helped me in my professional growing, in fact I could put in practice what I
had thought in theory: With the passing of the time I felt
as if my creativity was
and limited ; I devoured film masterpieces such as “Evil dead “ by the crazy
really felt the need to express and run the risk; in 1992 I
made “ The Dark Side “ trying to exploit my strong
will and determination and to make the others believe in what I did, I wanted to
pay homage to those who had fed my fancy and my film directing technique, a
mixing of the subjectivity of Raimi’s entity, Barker’s oniric setting ,
Argento’s colouring lights all together.
So I took part to “ Fano film festival “the positive feed back I had there, got me to decide for the self production.
I have always been fond of Heavy
Metal Music : “the new blood “ is the videoclip taken from “ The Dark Side
“ commented by “ Circle of the Tyrants “
1995 it came out “ The Shadow of the witch “ It wanted to be a tribute to
the great John Carpenter. The “short film” points out my professional
evolution. It has got two productions, a renewed cast and a particular searching
work on the film editing especially
in its second edition in 1998.. I aimed at expressing my
disgust for the powerful mass media and for the abuse of psycho drugs.
1997 I decided to substitute the details of the most brutal horror film with
dreamlike and romantic features: “Forever”.
Its story starts with a group of
boys who found a sceptre belonged to a mysterious sect of warrior friars. This
plot hints to different fantasy
stories and to the novel ”Il
pendolo di Faucault “ by Eco. The music is by King Diamond and Ozzy Osbourne
that are my favoured Metal musicians.
1998 I started to film experimenting . In “ Action Painting “ I
aimed at recreating the insane visions of the genius of David Lynch.
