Venice turns 1600 years old [Director’s Cut]

I’ve been to Venice many times and yet this enchanting place never ceases to amaze me. A few months ago I had the honor of producing a short film, commissioned by the City of Venice, to commemorate the 1600th anniversary of its founding. I took this opportunity to also create a Director’s Cut version of the film, using some unreleased footage. Let yourself be transported on this journey to one of the most beautiful cities in the world! And if you haven’t done so yet, watch the original film here:
