Through the years he has collected many experiences in several creative areas as actor (in commercials, theatre shows, Italian TV soap-opera "Vivere", music video clips for Italian musicians), radio speaker, camera operator, editor and finally director.
His interest in visual narrative started in 1980. A young kid of 11, he began to draw comics inspired by American and Japanese graphic novels and animations, of which he is a great fan. In 1985 Molteni started his first experiments in video shooting with a 8 mm camera: with his friends and parents he shot fake TV shows and created special makeup, latex masks and transformations in a "V-Visitors" style. Some years later he graduated in Arts & Graphics.
In 1991 he shot and edited his first short movie (with analog technologies): Pensando A Lei (Thinking of her).
In October 1999 he started to attend a dubbing and acting course in Milan, and just a few months later he started to have parts as a walk-on in Italian TV shows and as an extra in TV commercials.
Between 1999 and 2005 he worked as actor, radio speaker, commercials dubber and as independent camera operator and editor.
In April 2005 he shot his first "official" short movie, a western comedy: Three Jerks. In June 2005 he wrote and directed his first music video for the Italian musician Garbo (a big name of the 80s Italian New Wave): Onda Elettrica (Electric Wave). The video won the Best Story award (Independent Production) at the "7 Premio Videoclip Italiano" (7th Italian Music Video Award).
In Spring (February to May) 2006 he directed and played his short movie Un Piccolo Favore (A little favor), written with his friend and favorite writer Vito Di Domenico. In September 2006 he directed, co-produced and played his short movie Ritorno A Casa (Homecoming), written and co-produced by Vito Di Domenico.
Then in 2006 and 2007 he shot and edited special backstage/corporate/internal projects for important companies and brands as Michelin, Blaupunkt, Crodino, Aperol, Lancia and Festival Del Cinema Di Venezia.
In 2007 he played again in several commercials and TV promos.
In 2008 he directed the short movie La Partita Più Importante Della Stagione (The most important match of the season) for the short movie format "Sotto5" produced by Sky TV and in July, 2010, this short won 2nd place Best Short Foreign Film at All Sports Los Angeles Film Festival.
Now, he continues to play as an actor/dubber/speaker and to create, direct and edit his own projects.
