Previously, Mauro worked as an editor in the Comcast Building in Philly. He’s been a filmmaker his whole life.
Taormina, by the way, is absolutely beautiful, like, no exaggeration, it has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world, and Mauro goes back for an extended break each summer. We all wish we could go with him (I got to go once).
In addition to being our post-production supervisor, Mauro is an incredibly talented shooter and director. He's obsessed with quality image and color (as evidenced by how much better our color has gotten since he joined the team), and he's always the person to say: “Guys, if we just had this one more shot, it would be perfect.”
Us: “Mauro, we don't have time to—”
Mauro: “No, but like, really easy, just this one more shot.”
Mauro: “I’ll just go get it myself.” *grabs camera, walks out the door*
You'll be hearing more from Mauro soon, when we show you a piece he directed that was shot on 16mm film. Yes, film.
