About me

Ciao People,

My name is Mattia Capasso, Italian, I live and work in London.

I am a freelance production assistant / runner working in every aspect of visual entertainement (film, TV, commercial, corporate video, etc.).

I have a creative and well-tempered mind and good improvisation skills.

I am willing to undertake any task, putting all my energy into the role.

With a good understanding of the production process and set etiquette, I work well with other crew members and have great communication skills.

Besides my main PA/Runner position, I also work part-time as Digital Projectionist at Pinewood Studios.

Plus, I have qualified as a Commercial Drone Operator and I own a DJI Sparks Drone, therefore I’m still developing my operational drone skills.

I had previous experiences working in customer service, organizing events and meeting and volunteering in various film festivals.
