I'm prepping a feature action-drama to be shot in Calabria, Italy. I'm in the process of filling the crew list -- missing a top spot -- DP. Are there any Italians (or not) here that know of or have worked with a talented DP in That region or near by? Calabria has some breathless scenery, incredible wides.

hi,
just curious about your film.where you have to shoot?what about the story?digital or film?

i live in milan but i was born in calabria(LAMEZIA TERME).
i know what you means when you talk about the scenery of this region.
i'm a cinematographer.
here you can seen same works:

www.mto5.blogspot.com

but if you search very talent boys with a lot of experience that have worked also in indipendent productions i i can suggest you this names:
gigi martinucci
mario amura
luca coassin

but they are from puglia-rome-milan.
calabria is a land of emigration so you cannot found any cinematographers who lives there.i don't know even any famous cinematographer(with a lot of experience) who was born in calabria.

give me more news.if i can help you(even if i will not the cinematographer)send me an email:
shiny4@hotmail.com

best regards

Mark Melville is one of the most talented DP's I know. He speaks fluent Italian and English. He can shoot pretty pictures and work within a budget. He's also very fast. He just wrapped a feature in Italy. I believe he lives in Florence. I can get you his number if you wish.

Thanks! The film is a feature Thriller Action Drama. Locations in the script are limited to a field house (when we zero in on this location in Calabria) witch some ancillary spots around town. The story is basically a father and son tale -- criminal meets the innocent. Sorry to be so vague, more will be revealed as we dive into pre-production.

Looking at HD digital 2K possibly Red or other. Also looking for a DP that could bring in his crew: gaffer, electric etc. since this is more of a remote local... Crew doesn't have to be from Calabria but should be comfortable adapting to the production location.

I will look into the suggestions above. email you directly. thanks again!
