My name is Mattia Capasso, I am Italian, living and working in London.
I am a freelance Production Assistant/Runner working in every aspect of visual video (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 in the role.
With a good understanding of the production process and set etiquette, I work well with other crew members and I 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.
