About Mauro

Ok I'll make this quick and dirty. BA in Film, worked at New Line Cinema as a reader / assistant to the Head of Acquisitions. Written about 10 feature screenplays, 3 one-hour pilots, and a stageplay. Shot a handful of shorts, and am now in the process of shooting my first feature comedy "The Pre-Drink" (2017 release). Had a literary agent out of NY for about a year, but I fired him to do my own indie filmmaking.

I love all genres, and too many writers' / directors to list here... okay I'll list a few: Tarantino, Jong Boon Ho, Scorsese, Fincher, Wright, Kirosawa, Godard, the list goes on and on.

I also love putting on other people's glasses and doing exaggerated impressions of them.

Unique traits: Comedy writing, dialogue writing, high concept stories, visual storytelling director.
