Riccardo Paoletti

Riccardo was born in Arezzo (Tuscany), he lived for a while in the States and now he is based between Milan and Rome. In 2013 he shot “NEVERLAKE” his first feature film: a dark tale taking place in a mysterious Tuscany, entirely played in English and premiered at Courmayeur NOIR film festival. “BASTA POCO”, shot in 2015, is his second feature co-directed with Andrea Muzzi (actor and script writer) and the collaboration of Ugo Chiti.  It is a “social” comedy based on the search for happiness in our crisis period. He also directed “DAILIES” a “neo-realistic” documentary on Cinecittà workers premiered at Rome Film Festival and also shown at “Festival dei Popoli”. So far his only short film is “11 B” with the performance of Michela Cescon. Riccardo started as a music video director (Zucchero, Battiato, Ligabue, Midge Ure, Elio&ST, and many others) developing a certain experience in “guerrilla” and “creative” production. He still loves the challenge…Besides his cinematographic activity, he nowadays mostly directs commercialstv promos and web productions as he strongly believes that  “ad hoc” creativity and filmmaking professionalism can be applied to any form of visual communication. He collaborates in writing film scripts and formats (for SKY, MEDIASET). In the last few years he’s been directing the popular Nonsolomoda /X-style tv show.
