Andrea Marini

Andrea Marini was born in southern Tuscany in 1984. From a young age he has been passionate about movies, and began shooting his first amateur shorts. During High School he studied photography, cinema, advertising and graphic design, building his foundation in the visual arts and story-telling. In 2004 he moved to Rome to study Film and Television in Cinecittà, determined to achieve the goal of being a film director. His professional career began in 2007 working mainly in advertising and directing music videos. In 2011 he completed the short film “the Noise of Snow” which has gone on to win multiple awards in several international Film Festivals. He keeps working on advertising, directing a wide range of different kind of ads, not only in terms of clients differentiation, also concerning the visual and narrative approach. He has collaborated with production companies and clients like Filmmaster Italy, Sunset+Vine UK, Infront AMS, Bwin, Lavazza, Pokerstars, Herbalife, Greenpeace, Ministero dell’Ambiente and others. In early 2012 he opens Relight Films LLC and starts working on his first feature documentary film “Art of the Prank”, a documentary about the life of one of the greatest media pranksters of all times. This is a very demanding project, that allows him to approach a different type of storytelling and gaining more flexibility in approaching any other kind of production, from the aesthetics to the production side. Art of the Prank will be released in 2017. In the meantime he is finishing his second documentary film, the story of Paolo Barilla, entrepreneur and former F1 driver with a dream, to restore the glorious Ferrari 312B from 1970 and make it race once again on the track of Montecarlo; the project involves passionate mechanics but most importantly the engineer who created that car 46 year ago, the legend, Mauro Forghieri.
