About Luca

Raised in a family of directors and actors, Luca Caserta graduated in Filmmaking at Movie Academy of Cinecittà (Rome - Italy), majoring in movie direction and screenwriting with Carlo Lizzani, Giacomo Scarpelli, Cristiano Bortone, Franco Brogi Taviani and Mario Brenta. Here he also studied Cinematography, Shooting and Cinema with Giuseppe Pinori, Daniele Nannuzzi and Giuseppe Berardini and attended the workshops held by Pupi Avati, Carlo Verdone and Luis Bacalov.
He's author of short films, feature films, documentaries, music videos, commercials, promos and art videos. His movies have been presented at many Festivals (among which Cannes Film Festival, David di Donatello Awards - Rome, European Short Film Festival - Berlin, Roma Cinema DOC, Miami Independent Film Festival, Los Angeles Cinefest, Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival). His short film "Dal profondo - Out of the Depths", reviewed on CIAK magazine, is distributed on demand in the U.S. and worldwide by IndiePix Films (www.indiepixfilms.com).
He has gained professional experiences both in the Film Industry and Theatre, where he was engaged since he was a child, taking part to several plays (among which "Thomas Moore" by W. Shakespeare, starring Raf Vallone). Since 2004 he wrote and directed his own plays, achieving many awards (including the “Premio Calcante” by SIAD - Società Italiana Autori Drammatici, Biblioteca del Burcardo, Rome - Italy). Some plays have been published on specialized magazines and were discussed in a thesis. He talks about his work in an interview on CIAK's website.

  • Dal profondo (Out of the Depths)

    Dal profondo (Out of the Depths) (2014)
    Film (short) by Luca Caserta, Nuove Officine Cinematografiche (Horror, Thriller and Short) director, screenwriter, producer Elena and Andrea, a young married couple, arrive at their newly bought country house. A disturbing atmosphere pervades the old mansion upsetting her, but bewitching him. Day after day Andrea explores the building and the surrounding wood, behaving more and more oddly. Elena doesn't understand what's going on: Andrea seems to establish a symbiotic connection with the mansion and lets his mind wander, upsetting and frightening his wife. Something terrible is lurking under the ancient foundations, something that will affect them more than they could ever imagine... Dal profondo is a short horror movie that recalls the foreboding films of 70s-era Roman Polanski and the literary works of Lovecraft, Stephen King and Edgar Allan Poe. Having played at the Cannes Film Festival's edgy Short Film Corner in 2013, the 20-minute pic is set to satisfy a unique and mixed audience of art house, indie as well as genre fans this Halloween. A sumptuously faded villa in the lush Italian countryside is the setting of this deceptive thriller, which leaves its audience guessing with a haunting climax. Powered by the icy, reptilian performance of lead actor Davide Bardi, the short concerns a vacationing couple whose marital bliss is quickly dissolved by a mysterious force in the swanky dwelling.
