Carlo D’Alessandro’s first short film as a director, Room 9, won him the Best Fiction RTS award. He has since directed documentary dramas for STV and the BBC and relishes working across different genres from art films to music videos. With MTP he has shot and directed advertising campaigns such as Irn-Bru’s ‘Thank You’ advert – a love letter to the spirit of the Commonwealth Games, and for Network Rail’s Borders Railway Project.
Still very active as a cinematographer, he has shot campaigns for clients such as Visit Scotland, Royal Bank of Scotland, KFC, The Open University and Macmillan Publishers. He has been involved in numerous broadcast productions, most recently these include the major documentary series The Stuarts, and the award-winning documentary Michael Palin in Wyeth’s World, for which he won the RTS award for best camera.
More recently, he completed a year-long photography assignment recording the heritage left in the landscape by the monks of the Grande-Chartreuse in the French Alps.
