Director Biography - GLORIA LATTANZI

I am a lovable human being that loves dark chocolate, strong espresso and great films.

Born and grew up in Rome, with big dreams and vividly wild imagination, I quickly developed a great artistic sensibility. I have always been fascinated by paintings, photography and then cinema, as it blends together so many other art forms. In the dark of a theatre, you are completely immersed in that time, in that story, until the credits roll. And when the lights are back, you discover that you are a bit different from the way you were before. Great films move and influence people’s lives. This is what happened to me watching Coen brothers, Fellini or Spielberg’s film.

After moving to Glasgow, I enrolled at Glasgow Clyde College to study Creative Industries. During my studies, I found out my mission in this world: being a filmmaker, use my personal vision to craft beautiful films that can inspire people.

In the last two years, I wrote and directed dramas, documentaries and corporate videos. I like to experiment new genres and embracing new challenges. As a scriptwriter, I like to explore the human nature and tell intimate journeys in unconventional ways. I also love editing my own works, using Avid Media Composer or Adobe Premiere. I enjoy when everything take place in the timeline and the magic starts to happen. I usually spend hours trying tiny adjustments, like moving a clip one frame forward… no, wait, let’s try to move it two frames back!

My ultimate goal as a filmmaker is to give to the audience true moments of poetry and emotions.
