Exclusive Interview with VITTORIO ADINOLFI-Filmmaker
NY Glam: What projects are you currently working on?
Vittorio:I’m writing a screenplay for a feature film, but I’m just getting started. And I’m planning a new web series that will have a very particular structure: each episode will be made up of mini gags of very short duration, as if they were comic strips. I will tell the adventures of a Neapolitan superhero. I would like to shoot this series using only mobile phones and camera go pro.
NY Glam: What makes a film great for you? Are there certain qualities that make a film better for you?
Vittorio: The starting point is important: a good idea. Then, I really like the shooting technique in a film, the style. To make a good product, I want to spend a lot of my time on the set to make a shot that satisfies me.
NY Glam: As a screenwriter, what is the most important aspect of building a character?
Vittorio:For me the characters are a means of making the story work. They must be functional to history.
NY Glam: Top 3 favorite projects that you have been involved in?
Vittorio: In projects not mine or in any case not created only by me? They are few. I am often a producer of myself. My first projects are certainly my first web series to which I am affectionately connected, shot in 2007, “Nea Polis 001: The Rise”, with many technical errors, but a lot of enthusiasm from the whole cast. My first TV program entitled “Informal”, a series of interviews with cultural figures. And another TV program, always created by me, a video magazine that talked about comics, of which I am a fan.
NY Glam: Do you express yourself creatively in any other ways?
Vittorio: Theater. That’s where I started. And it is there that I will return from time to time.
NY Glam: What advice would you give to someone who wants to have a career in filmmaking?
Vittorio: If you have good ideas, you can go anywhere.
NY Glam: What can we expect from you in 2020?

written in 2019. An action sci-fi movie. The script is ready, financiers must
I’m running around a series written for TV, a sitcom called “Gangsters”.
