Michele Di Rienzo
02.03.1996 Thanks to a vivid imagination, since childhood he spends a lot of time writing and watching movies, spending sleepless nights and accumulating cassettes and DVDs over the years. Creating stories, playing with the viewer and somehow deceiving him have always been his strength. Almost for fun, he starts filming his friends in comic situations and uploading them to YouTube. Following economic studies, in 2016 he enrolled at the Istituto Cinematografico Michelangelo Antonioni in Busto Arsizio (VA), where he graduated in 2019 in Film Direction. During his studies he has the opportunity to make short films such as LMDB (2018) and Endless (o Natale con gli occhiali da sole) (2018), which allow him to experiment and have fun with storytelling. In 2019 he wrote and directed Simmetria (2019) starring Leonardo Nenna and Noemi Bertoldi, a short film that won over 20 national and international awards. At the beginning of 2020, before the Covid-19 epidemic, he was hired by Independent Movie Productions to direct the feature film Traces of Madness (2021), starring Daniele Marcheggiani, Fabrizio Rocchi and Mauro Negri. Shot between June and September of the same year, the film participates in the Berlin and Cannes film market. Emera Film released it in theaters from December 6th 2021. In 2021 he directed two new short films: "Rocks", produced by Creative For You Productions, and "Gas Station" with Alessandro Gessaga. Fascinated by Christopher Nolan's cinema and his brother Johnatan's writing, which soon became two models to follow, he has always tried to create products that dissociate themselves from the more classic storytelling. Whether it's commercial or narrative videos, he always tries to follow his own pattern and to get the viewer to the solution after unexpected twists. All this in 2,40:1 aspect.
