- History (partial)
Andrea Marini was born in southern Tuscany in 1984.
From a young age he has been passionate about movies, and began shooting his first amateur shorts. During High School he studied photography, cinema, advertising and graphic design, building his foundation in the visual arts and story-telling.
In 2004 he moved to Rome to study at NUCT (Film and Television School), determined to achieve the goal of being a film director.
His professional career began in 2007 working mainly in advertising and directing music videos. In 2011 he completed the short film “the Noise of Snow” which has gone on to win multiple awards in several international Film Festivals.
In early 2012 he starts working on his first feature documentary film “Art of the Prank”, a documentary on the life of one of the greatest media pranksters of all times. The film is now an award-winning documentary.
In 2016 he starts working on his second film, a documentary on the reconstruction of a formula 1 Ferrari from 1970, the legendary F 312B.
