Life is too short to make it bitter. That's why you should smile...
Gianis Athanasiou Totonidis lives in Thessaloniki. From a very early age he liked explosions and his parents convinced him to study Chemistry (he is an A.U.Th. graduate), for fear he might blow their house up. The ‘explosiveness’ of his psyche urged him to take up Cinematography.
He studied Direction and is a member of the Greek Directors Guild (G.D.G.) and the Federation of European Screen Directors (F.E.R.A.)
He is also a film critic, a member of the Pan-Hellenic Association of Film Critics (P.A.F.C.), of the Fédération Internationale de la Presse Cinématographique (FIPRESCI) and of the Hellenic Film Academy.
He was a columnist in printed or electronic magazines, while he was also a Music Producer, an Editor in Radio and Television Film Broadcasts and a Television Presenter of Film Broadcasts.
Lately, he has been experimenting with writing, seeking ‘explosions’ of inspiration, the result of it being the book “10 Deranged Tales of Mystery, Horror & Fantasy,” published in 2019.
In 2020, another eight short stories of his received distinctions in competitions in the genres of Horror and Fantasy.
In 2021 he published another book titled E.M.O. (Emotions Most Oneiric).
Finally, he has recently completed his post-graduate studies with an A on Creative Writing, specifically in “Film Screenwriting & Television”, of the School of Fine Arts in the department of Cinematography in the A.U.Th.
