Director Biography - Luca Gabriele Rossetti

Like most kids, my mind was all over the place. I wanted to be an archaeologist first, then a marine biologist, and after seeing Jurassic Park, a paleontologist… But, when I realized that was misguided, I decided I wanted to be a dreams maker. I was obsessed with movies and how they are made, and absorbed everything I could from books, special features on dvds and people in the field.
My passion drove me to work quite hard. Of course, I did have some training, starting with the only certified Softimage 3D school, at that time. Then, as I grew up I changed to others training courses and then, went abroad, always wanting more and more throughout.
Visual Effects has been of course my main route in the Film Industry, since I have realized that i was good enough to inspire the mood and the look of establishing sequences in great blockbusters.
Form concept artist to film designer for vfx studios, since landing to work with art departments straight with production designers and directors.
Some of the best example are Conan the Barbarian, Snow white and the Huntsman, Total Recall, Alice in Wonderland 2, STAR WARS : Rogue One and the most recent The Mummy Reboot.
I have been lucky enough to work with majors VFX studios worldwide, from Double Negative To Animal Logic, from Rising Sun Pictures to Sony Pictures Imageworks and so on...
Working with so many talented people, that when i was a kid for me were just so far away, cheek to cheek with visual effects veterans, well, I am proud of it.
I became a Member of the Visual Effects Society in 2011, the most important award achieved for having contribute in a significant way in the visual effects on Harry Potter.
I started to get that director bug. Writing scripts, and developing stories.
While working on different projects, in 2006 I wrote a short, a particular one that has been shooted 2 years ago.
I was Director, DP, Editor, VFX, Wardrobe, and Art department all in one...and I loved it!
I have been lucky enough to shoot some commercials when I was in Vancouver, for NIKE and Hyundai
Much more than this, I could merge my strong knowledge in VFX with the Director side, few of us can make this!
I still like to get dirty and draw ideas or create the odd ball visual effect… It’s all part of the fun!

Director Statement

Reboot is a classic science fiction film. The film is set in our world, where we can see a common man like everyone of us.
The story itself is a unique twist where everything we see it is not what we think, and continue to change till the end with a shocking revelation.
Visual effects are used to augment the practical effects and give us the ability to create what is needed to complete any frames, but not to exaggerate the final mood.
This is an sci fi short intended to entertain and make people think about who we are and what's after us.
A good balance of suspense, action and anxiety and furthermore
However, I also envision this as a very intelligent and fresh film: the kind that deep thinkers like.
The most important aspects of the movie is the journey of the main character, a journey that is the metaphor of everyone's life
