Profiles & Work of Professional Motion Picture Production and Post Talent

Mattia Lunardi

Mattia was born in a town next to a magical tiny lake in northern Italy. After a childhood spent playing guitar in a couple of Heavy Metal bands, immersing himself in music and cinema, and convincing parents and friends to act in his first film experiments. Mattia graduated from the New Academy of Fine Arts in Milan and began his career working in motion graphics and post-production, then ventured out with his camera to shoot music videos, branded content, and short films. Later on, he expanded his role as a narrative and TV commercial director with a focus on comedy, lifestyle, and storytelling. After collaborating with several production houses in Italy and working with top agencies like Ogilvy, Leo Burnett, McCann, Saatchi & Saatchi, Wunderman Thompson, and others, he recently entered the international market, shooting in the Middle East and Asia. He has a strong passion for comedy and lifestyle genres and enjoys collaborating with creatives and actors while overseeing the look and feel of the projects. His short films and commercials have received international awards. In 2020, he took advantage of the lockdown to create an animation series released on Amazon Prime Video Italy, which provided a new and exciting directing experience. Recently, he co-founded a Directors Duo called "Two Shots" with a dear and talented colleague director. A parallel project to his "solo" career, focused on a contemporary and fresh vision of "food" and "live action," which led them to direct a major Coca-Cola campaign, on air since March 2024, for the Asian market as their first project. His client portfolio includes Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Vodafone, Etisalat, Converse, Kinder, Oakley, Samsung, Adidas, and many others. Always eager to travel, brainstorm with creatives, engage with clients, develop treatments, collaborate with new DPs, and explore new markets and projects.
