Andrea Barone


1984. Made and born in Florence. From an early age Andrea has lived and breathed art through his father, an informal expressionist painter. In 2004, whilst studying in the department of Arts, Music and Film at Bologna University, he started his creative career as a director with the visual artists collective. These were the years of experimental short films, documentary films and concept videos for Italian art galleries: basically everything that could nourish his creativity. After graduation, Andrea moved to the UK to complete his studies at the NFTS, and from that moment he never stopped travelling, gathering experience in directing Fashion Films and Commercials around Europe, USA and Asia. In London, where he currently resides, Andrea started directing worldwide British talents such as Tom Hiddleston, Alexa Chung and Holliday Grainger and he has also worked alongside photography icons like Ellen von Unwerth and Emma Summerton or stylists like Edward Enninful. In 2016 with his work “Polaroidream” gets the prestigious Vimeo Staff Pick.
