Walter Della Mura is an aspiring director who lives between Maiori (Salerno, Amalfi Coast) and Naples, where he works and studies.
He graduated in 2020 from a BA in Photography, Cinema and Television at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Naples. At the moment, he is studying for a Master in Cinematography at the Pigrecoemme School of Cinema in Naples.
As scriptwriter and director, Walter realised small advertising videos and three short films. Among them, ‚ÄúIl ritorno‚Äù (The return), is worth to be mentioned; ‚ÄúIl ritorno‚Äù is his first short film, which took part in the Neapolitan short film festival ‚ÄúCortisonanti‚Äù, and ranked second in the category ‚ÄúSport‚Äù.
The other two short films, ‚ÄúConnessione‚Äù (Connection) and ‚ÄúL‚Äôultima volta‚Äù (The last time) are exercises in style, useful in order to practise what he learned at the Accademia and to express his creativity.
Walter has a keen interest in European auteur cinema. He is fond of stories which, using cinematographic means, can create strong emotions and make the audience think about life.
In 2019 he realised, as scriptwriter and director, ‚ÄúIl canto del mare‚Äù (The song of the sea), short film about a difficult relationship between a father and a son. All is mixed with a fantasy atmosphere.
Many of the actors involved are particularly known in the Neapolitan scenario, as Stefano Miglio and Roberta Misticone.
Another short film, written and directed by Walter, is in pre-production: ‚ÄúMaternage‚Äù. The main character will be portrayed by Anna Rita Vitolo, actress in the famous tv series ‚ÄúL‚Äôamica geniale‚Äù (My Brilliant Friend).
