Biscuit Filmworks today announced that director Angelo Cerisara has joined the company’s roster in both the US and UK. Born in Italy and based in London, Angelo is a notable up-and-coming director who has already earned accolades including winning New Director of the Year at the Shots Awards EMEA and shortlisted for the British Arrows Emerging Talent award.
“Angelo has a wonderful perspective on life which comes through in all of his work, he manages to elevate the world to a place that I wish more of us did. He’s an incredibly exciting young talent and we can’t wait to get started,” said Rupert Reynolds-MacLean, managing director at Biscuit UK.
Immersed in the world of parkour as a teenager, Angelo learned the craft by filming his peers on the fly and editing to maximise the excitement. He later studied at the National Film and Television School (NFTS) in London. His background informs his dynamic visual style today, with work for brands including Nike, Uber, and Hardee’s, the music video ‘Hold On’ for Not Waving which was shortlisted at the UK Music Video Awards, and the documentary short ‘Frehiwot’ which was awarded at the Nespresso Talents competition. His ‘Missed You Stranger’ campaign for Belgian radio station StuBru captures mesmerising illustrations of human connection, and received a Vimeo Staff Pick.
