Turning an idea, be it for a feature film, a documentary, a music video or a commercial, is an exciting adventure that draws fully from creativity's melting pot.
Raised in an environment full of artistic stimuli within a family of directors and actors, Luca Caserta graduated in Filmmaking at Movie Academy of Cinecittà (Rome - Italy), majoring in movie direction and screenwriting with Carlo Lizzani, Giacomo Scarpelli, Cristiano Bortone, Franco Brogi Taviani and Mario Brenta. Here he also studied Cinematography, Shooting and Cinema with Giuseppe Pinori, Daniele Nannuzzi and Giuseppe Berardini and attended the workshops held by Pupi Avati, Carlo Verdone and Luis Bacalov.
He's author of short films, feature films, documentaries, music videos, commercials, promos and art videos. His movies have been presented at many Festivals (among which Cannes Film Festival, David di Donatello Awards - Rome, European Short Film Festival - Berlin, Roma Cinema DOC, Miami Independent Film Festival, Los Angeles Cinefest, Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival, Hollywood Screenings Film Festival, Canada's World International Film Festival where he won the Honorable Mention). His short film "Dal profondo - Out of the Depths" is distributed on demand in the U.S. and worldwide by IndiePix Films.
He has gained professional experiences both in Film Industry and Theatre, where he was engaged since he was a child, taking part to several plays (among which "Thomas Moore" by W. Shakespeare, starring Raf Vallone). Since 2004 he wrote and directed his own plays, achieving many awards (including the “Premio Calcante” by SIAD - Società Italiana Autori Drammatici, Biblioteca del Burcardo, Rome - Italy). Some plays have been published on specialized magazines and were discussed in a thesis. His movies have been included in the Centro Nazionale del Cortometraggio (Italy). He's one of the judges of the Sunset Film Festival (U.S.A.). He's now working on his first feature film.
