Food Maniac - TV Show (30 episodes)

Cows and Horses 4K  - Travelog film

Linde Material Handling  - Corporate film

Programmes were filmed on location in Milan, edited in batches and released on La 7’s every Friday. The response so far has been fantastic, with a steadily growing audience and lots of social media interaction. The innovative series has also had coverage in the Italian national press – notably La Stampa and La Repubblica.

4K field test (literally) with the Panasonic Lumix Fz1000. Shot in Backford (Chester).

ABOUT ME

Mic is an insightful and effective producer, he was able to quickly grasp the brief and create high quality output in a time sensitive environment. I would have no hesitation in working with him again in the future.

 

Will Radford - Digital Product Director at Red Bull

 

 

Michelangelo Girardi is a very talented Producer/Director with, in my experience, a unique range of skills. As a commercially trained stills photographer he has an excellent eye as well as an encyclopedic and hands-on understanding of digital video camera technologies. He also has brilliant people skills, enabling him to elicit natural performances from interviewees in a documentary context. He is a creative and conscientious editor and experienced motion graphics designer. Mic never fails to give 100% to every project and takes a pride in doing work efficiently with an eye to budgets, but without compromising on quality.

 

Andy Porter - Veracity Digital

 

 

I have worked with Michelangelo on a number of projects.

From his ability to capture the moment, tell the story in the edit and embellishing the live action narrative with engaging motion graphics, his repertoire brings remarkable value to every project. He always adds value to our objectives.

Beyond this he brings an infectious personality, humour and wit to the team dynamics of every project.

 

Chris Fogg -  Fogg&Associates

 

 

Michelangelo Girardi's professionalism and initiative make him a joy to work with. Given the issues around positionality that we have to be especially aware of with the Food Bank documentary, I've been particularly impressed by his ability to relate to and put everyone around him at ease.

 

Alec Spencer - West Cheshire Food Bank

Who am I?

 

I'm Michelangelo, or more prosaically “Mic”. I've spent my formative years as a director, camera operator, editor, After Effects specialist and stills photographer in Verona and the Italian Lakes. Now I'm firmly established in the North West of England and the production companies I'm working with are always saying I add a distinctly Italian style to the mix. My experience in broadcast TV and commercials production is extensive, as is my knowledge of Chester and Manchester espresso outlets.

 

What do I do?

 

Sometimes I'm taking pictures, sometimes I'm operating a camera or doing animation, sometimes I'm working as a producer or I simply edit what someone else has been filming. I work alongside agencies and studios giving my best with a hint of Made in Italy.

 

Who did I work for?

 

Through the years I've been privileged to work for a vast number of agencies and brands like:

 

OGILVY ITALY, MINDSHARE, SAATCHI&SAATCHI, GRAFFITI.IT, WRGLIVE, LIONEYES, PETER KAY, FOGG ASSOCIATES, RICOH, MAGNET KITCHENS, HOUSE OF SOUNDS (BBC2 and BBC LEARNING), WARRINGTON WOLVES, LINDE, EQUITY RELEASE SUPERMARKET, ASTRAZENECA, REDBULL, NEGRITA, INTEL, ASUS, CLARKS, MAPEI, BIANCHI, TRAMIN, PROEL, JUVENTUS, FRIESKIES, FIAT, IBM, GAMBERO ROSSO, LA7, SIMONE RUGIATI, LAGOSTINA, NORGE SEAFOOD, AURICCHIO, FABBRI EDITORI, CTE, RAI1, ITALIA1, FILMAND, ARENA DI VERONA, IDEARE, PHYTOGARDA, DICEWIRE, BLACKSUBMARINE, FRUTTA E FIBRE by ORTIS, REGIONE VENETO, DANIEL PASCOSKY
