Director Biography - Michele Vicenti

Since his first pair of drumsticks at the age of six Michele has always based his life on rhythm.

Learning how to make films in the fast-paced tempo of post-production with the award-winner film editors Andrea Maguolo and Federico Conforti, Michele trained himself to become a filmmaker, jamming from country to country on documentary film productions. In 2017 produced and directed 'Storie di Pietra', a full-length documentary about the relationship between artists and rocks.

Moving his groove to directing, Michele has then established in London, where he co-directed 'To The Surface', a documentary starring Mela Murder (The Florida Project).

Michele has recently also collaborated with Channel 4 for their documentary series 'True Stories' and with Jerry Rothwell for 'The Reason I Jump' (Sundance 2020 Award).

Recently graduated in Directing Commercials at NFTS UK, Michele is working as a freelance film director, and his imprinted drumsticks technique is still banging.
