GIACOMO CORVAIA

filmmaker | video editor

BIO


While being a professional dancer performing worldwide for over fifteen years, Giacomo discovered and dedicated  himself to filmmaking and videography through the experience of choreography, movement aesthetic and the power of moving images. His focus is mainly on dance films, music videos and experimental hybrids. 
His very first approach to film was a workshop taught by director Lutz Gregor, whose earlier works focused on dance as well. From that start, he realized that being behind the camera searching for the perfect storytelling was as exciting as being the performer himself. So after the first experiments directing and filming some short dance films he studied cinematography at the SHOT ACADEMY and post production elements at the IED ( European Institute for Design) both in Rome.
He currently collaborates with well renowned Berlin dance company cie.toula limnaios as its filmmaker and live stream broadcasting director. Their first film WE ARE MADE was screened in various festivals around the world. 
He also runs a small collective called FilmovinG, creating content for music videos, teasers, showreels, trailers, archive documentations and art projects.
He produces dance and theater performances documentations, video installations and trailers for choreographers such as Johannes Wieland, Veronica Ritz, Chris J├Ąger, Toula Limnaios, Clebio Oliveira, Sophie Bartels, Maria Colusi, Nitsan Margaliot.
Since January 2021 he's a video editor for the entertainment agency Happy Gang, editing social media content for clients such as MTV, Sky and History Channel.  He edits as well promotional videos for festivals such as SHARE The dance IntensiveCircus Dance Lab and B12
In 2023 together with choreographer Enrico Paglialunga he creates #UNDERMYSKIN, an interactive dance film on demand, a project born out of urgency to reflect on today's addictive use of social media.
