Alessandro Pizzi is a passionate documentary and commercial director based in Munich, Germany.
Alessandro was first inspired to pursue documentary filmmaking when he shot his first documentary for the Italian Red Cross in the town of Visso, after a very violent earthquake had destroyed much of the territory and put many lives in danger. Alessandro is currently studying documentary filmmaking and television journalism at the University of Film and Television in Munich.
He recently released his second documentary, the first of his course of study, Back to back, which is a short film starring the famous graphic designer Mirko Borsche.
Alessandro has worked on the team of some commercial productions for global brands such as Coca-Cola and MAN and directed fashion advertising campaigns for MyTheresa.com. In 2021, he also began working in fiction films by joining the team of a major production for the first time, again in collaboration with HFF.
The first sign that I found the right story is when the idea comes down from inside your head and into your heart. In human relationships, we make friends with people we want to know for the rest of our lives. The same sincere commitment is necessary when choosing a film project that can take from months to a year or more to complete.
