Giulia Candussi
I am an emerging documentary-maker with experience working in film and digital factual production. I have over 10 years experience working as a photojournalist sourcing innovative content and developing strong visual storytelling skills. Over the past few years, I have been adapting those skills and have been working as a documentary filmmaker in various formats. I am a self-starter full of ideas and I regularly collaborate with BBC Scotland making short documentaries for their platform The Social, reaching over 1.3M views on social media with my popular series ‘Vanlife’. I have also worked with the Short-Form team within the Digital department at BBC Scotland researching, producing, filming, and editing short documentaries. I am a naturally inquisitive person with great people skills: I have a track record of finding and working with contributors as well as developing relationships with new talent from different cultures and backgrounds. I am also confident self-shooting on location using industry-standard equipment such as C300 and Zoom recorders.
