Director Biography - Massimo Fiore Mangione

Hi, i'm Massimo Fiore Mangione, MFM.
I was born in Genova, Italy at 16 November 1998.
I've studied Psicology at the Liceo Statale Arturo Issel, while i used to act in small theatre companies for ten years.
After the degree i've started to work as a photographer in different situations, using my free days to study cinema and write my ideas.
Today i'm a photographer who spend his days writing and making new short films, thinking about my first full lenght movie, that i would like to do as soon as possible.
My love for cinema started when i was a child, with my mother we used to talk a lot about the meaning of each movie.
On the set i care about beign focused, be aware of what we're going to do and pull out the best we can from each one of the crew.
Passion and dedication is the only way to make a great movie, at least for me.

Director Statement

In November i was a student of the school IED in Rome, we had a homework, make a short video to show that we had understood the basic things about the cinematography, but i wanted more than an exercise.
I've decided to transform the exercise in a real short film, creating it under the time rules of the scholl, we had to film it in 3 hours, not more.
We've filmed it in those 3 hours, we had spent 100 euros as budget to make the outifts, that's all.
I'm not a editor, but i wanted that the short film could came out as i want, so i've spent two months and half to edit everything you'll see in the film, learning everyday more.
After some time i've left the school to focus more about my ideas while i study alone what i need or i want to know.
I hope that with this short film you could feel that the love for ourselves, the passion about the things we care about and the dedication that every artist puts in his works are the most the valuable things, over everything that could pull you down to sadness.
