Ciao! My name is Federica, I am an Italian girl living in Stirling, Scotland. I’m a writer, filmmaker, photographer, and generally creative person.
Ever since I was little, I had always been drawn to the camera. When I was 10, I convinced my parents to buy me a Polaroid camera (they were very fancy at the time!) and I treasured it more than anything else. Along with photography and filming very random things on my dad’s massive Canon film camera, I also had a passion for writing and telling stories. As soon as I learned how to write, on most days you would find me on the family’s computer, typing my stories away for hours at a time.
Since then, I’ve written countless stories and a few children’s books (yet to be published). In 2016 I became serious about my photography hobby and developed my skills after years of being an amateur, until eventually I became a contributor to RockShot Magazine. Shortly after I became interested in other creative avenues like film and radio. I realised I wanted to tell stories and not limit myself to one medium. I started my Youtube channel, planned my future podcast, started blogging again more regularly in 2018, made my first short film in 2019 and my second one in 2020.
Connected was screened at the GMAC in Glasgow in November 2019, where it was warmly received. As of January 2020, I am in the process of making a third short film (which will be finished by April 2020) and writing my first radio drama (to be finished by March 2020). Concurrently to my films, I also make videos on Youtube about topics that matter to me, such as media analysis, writing, photography and asexuality. I also plan to upload the first episode of my podcast soon.
I chose to finally follow my true passions and started studying a BA in Digital Media at the University of Stirling in 2018. I am now looking for opportunities to enter the media industry in 2020, after I graduate with my HND. I am always looking to challenge myself and grow as an artist.
When I’m not creating things, I can be found reading, playing tabletop games, and enjoying a nice cosy rainy day.
