Director Biography - Marcelo Di Marcio

Marcelo Di Marcio was born on April 9, 1972, in São Paulo, SP, Brazil. He is an actor and director, known for his work as actor in "Vultures" (Feature film), "DNA do crime" (Netflix), "Joint Venture" (HBO), and as director in "Lara & Paul" (2021), "Dangerous Lapses" (2022) and "The Killer's movie audition" (2019).

Di Marcio grew up in the East Side, in a poor area of the city. He started his career as a radio announcer and police columnist in the 1990s. He then studied architecture at the Universidade do ABC (UNiABC), but dropped out of the course to dedicate himself to the art of screenwriting and film production. As an independent filmmaker, he produced and acted in several short films. In 2017, he founded "The OfiCine", a free cinema workshop that teaches underprivileged young people how to make low-budget films. With the release of the two short films Queda Cortês (Lara and Paul), a drama, and Gauthier (Dangerous Lapses), a crime thriller, both financed by himself and with the support of his film students who wrote the screenplay, Di Marcio started a new phase as an actor, director, and film producer.

Director Statement

As a director, I totally believe in the mind-blowing power of movies to go beyond borders and connect people on a deep level. Through storytelling, we dive into the raw emotions, challenge society's rules, and shed light on stories that haven't been told.

In every project I take on, my ultimate goal is to create a cinematic experience that immerses the audience and really hits home. I put my heart and soul into capturing genuine performances, crafting visually captivating scenes, and meticulously blending the art of cinematography, sound, and music to hit you right in the feels.

I'm drawn to stories that break the mold, make you think, and push you to reflect on life. Whether it's exploring the intricate web of human relationships, tackling pressing social issues, or getting lost in fantastical worlds, my mission is to create stories that leave a lasting mark.

Collaboration is at the core of my creative process as a filmmaker. I'm all about fostering a creative environment where every team member feels valued and empowered to bring their own unique perspectives and talents to the table. Together, we hustle hard, constantly pushing boundaries and striving for excellence. Through my work as a director, I want to tell stories that entertain, engage, and straight-up blow your mind.

Thanks a bunch for joining me on this wild creative journey, and I can't wait to share my vision with you through the mind-blowing power of cinema.
