Francesca: a young freelance filmmaker tells 54 Flares Made with Flare More Info'> × Flares 54 ×

Hello Francesca, tell us a little about yourself to get started: your studies, and because the choice to pursue a career as a freelance?

videomaker freelance Hello to all! Let me introduce myself: I am 26 years old and live in the province of Varese, even if I move constantly between the country in which I live and the cities of Milan and Lugano. After studying for high school, I attended a course in Communication Design at the Politecnico di Milano, thus obtaining both a bachelor's degree and specialist. My career began as a freelance own in the last year of university, when the draft of the thesis allowed me to manage my time better: so I could dedicate myself to some project paid staff. I then worked as a visual designer in the Research Centre of the European Commission which is based in the province of Varese (JRC). The traineeship contract had a duration of one year, I stopped by a few months to go back to being self-employed. Although I found myself in a professional environment extremely interesting, I have chosen to follow a very occasional collaboration that would enhance my creativity. Currently I am small audiovisual productions, starting from their conception through the directing and editing, and ending with the digital post-production. What I love about my job is the ability to create real "small worlds" imagine, build, and finally bring it to life through the magic of animation.'m Also specializes in art direction and graphic design, with a particular fondness for digital illustration.

Being a freelance: what does it mean? What do you think of the choice of many of today's young people become self-employed?

Being freelance means essentially be an entrepreneur of his own talent and his own knowledge. Believe that in Italy to become a freelance is one of the few chances you have to fill the absence of a "real" job, as definerebbero our parents. Many young people, like me, have been discovered freelance without an initial awareness of wanting to truly become: we start with small jobs to someone you know in the end you end up with several clients to manage. In my case, being a freelance allows me to earn more money than I would have received as a young member of staff employed in some studio or advertising agency (perhaps as an intern). At this point it becomes so difficult to go back and give up the freedom, independence and gratification of a freelancer.

A visa for Canada and overseas experience that must have been very important to you, you tell us something?

My Canadian adventure began in 2010, when I felt the need to get away from home for a short time to live an intense experience and visit the North America. I found in the city of Toronto everything I wanted and hoped: nature and innovation, multiculturalism and kindness, efficiency and beauty. After I filled the eyes of so many new and energy, I was perfectly aware that the homecoming would be difficult for sure. The curiosity and the fear of being trapped in a world devoid of stimuli that pushed me to fill out the application and obtain a visa from the embassy that will allow me to work in Toronto for an initial period of 6 months. This is the "Working-Holiday Visa" that the Canadian government, in agreement with the Italian awards each year and are limited to young people between 18 and 35 years. I am increasingly convinced that this kind of experience can only be positive, especially for those who choose to pursue a career in visual communication: the more you look at the world better you are able to communicate.
