“La macchina da presa è più di un registratore, è un microscopio, penetra, entra dentro le persone e consente di vedere i loro pensieri più intimi e nascosti.” – Elia Kazan

 

What I do

Elia Cristofoli - Logo

My profession is a blend of skills acquired over more than twenty years of experience in video production companies and communication agencies. In essence, I am a hybrid of an old-school director, a new-generation videomaker, a creative director, and a team manager. I can produce both commercials and serial videos for social media.

Below are the talents I have cultivated throughout my life, accompanied by new and intriguing passions.

Scriptwriting

 

I invent and write stories. Creative writing is the foundation of every video, whether it's a 30-second commercial or a two-hour film. Everything always starts with a screenplay or script. Only the length changes. Put me to the test!

storyboard

 

It's the best tool to prepare for the set and save valuable time, but also to bring the client closer to the director's overall idea. Often, I try to draw simple storyboards, strictly in black and white, but with a strong visual impact.

pre-production

 

Locations, actors, extras, permits, equipment, crew, scheduling, releases, dates, times, lunches, dinners... Every video production needs to be meticulously organized, never taking anything for granted. And remember... It might rain!

Direction/Assistant 

 

The shooting day is when I have to prove my worth. If everything has been organized according to the storyboard, then everything goes smoothly. I usually leave a 15% margin for improvisation to handle any unforeseen circumstances that inevitably arise at the last minute. If needed, I'm also happy to take on the role of assistant director.

Drone Pilot

 

Certified Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) operator, with a valid A1/A3 license issued by EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) and ENAC (Ente Nazionale per l'Aviazione Civile). My growing passion leads me to explore new limits every day because the sensation of flying is priceless.

NB: All drones are duly registered and insured.

360° VR Video

 

Ideal for setups and events, immersive videos can be navigated in 360°, both with VR headsets and simply on YouTube, Facebook, and your own website. A real blast!

post-production

 

A filmmaker worth their salt also knows how to edit their own videos. I spent years in post-production before moving into directing, but the magic of editing will stay with me until death do us part. So, count on me for video editing, VFX, SFX, color correction, and all the rest.
