About Gianluca

With over a decade in film/media production across two continents, I am experienced in multiple creative, technical, and management roles. My background has evolved from a film buff turned self-shooter, turned film analysis student, turned entrepreneur.

I have been involved in various stages of professional media production for many years. From 2009 to 2015 I co-founded and ran Effetto Espanso, a small videography studio in Pisa, Italy. I have dealt with corporate and creative work. I’ve provided services for clients and I’ve completed self-directed projects. I am used to working in teams, having held many different positions inside them. When I moved to Toronto to pursue a career in film and TV post-production, I embraced the ultimate self-starter attitude.

My diverse skill set is suitable for Media/Video production (complete creative and technical workflow, including camera + editing) and Film/TV post (editor, assistant editor, online editor, dailies, DMT) .

Wakefield has been hiding in a small apartment for years. He didn’t leave any traces behind and keeps spying on his former girlfriend using bugs and hidden cameras, in a sort of twisted social experiment. Time goes by, in a flow of memories, thoughts, and loneliness. When the girl – who has long moved on – is about to take a step which would put her out of range for good, Wakefield starts thinking about getting back into her life.
