About Bruno

I came late into the film world, having spent over a decade working as a software developer, but in the past six years, I've written several scripts, and directed a few shorts, as well as helping out a couple of friends in their film and theatre productions. However, I always had a passion for film. I'm a classic film nut (pre-1970s, after that I'll debate you whether it should be considered a "classic" or not). Many of my main references are guys like John Ford, Billy Wilder, Frank Capra, Alfred Hitchcock, Rod Serling. But I will also watch anything after that, all the way to the latest blockbusters or indie films. I just love film. I feel confident enough now that film is what I want to do. I have projects of my own that I want to realise over the next few years (as a writer/director), but in the meantime, I'm looking for industry experience, learn with the best, and meet some interesting people along the way. I believe having a bit of experience in every job helps a director better understand what that job entitles and prepares him to better communicate with his collaborators. I've took acting classes to better understand how actors approach roles, I've edited to understand how limited an editor can be if the director does a poor job during production, and now I'd like to expand my knowledge by working on different sets and see how different people approach similar problems. Being a software developer for so long made me a natural problem solver, and the habit of working in team. It's actually amazing how many similarities there are between the dynamics of a film crew and a software development team. So I don't see it as wasted time, but instead, basic training.
