Cosa significa fare effetti digitali, ma soprattutto cosa significa fare effetti digitali in Italia?
Perché un paio di mascalzoni che lavoravano ad altisssimi livelli in Francia ad un certo punto decidono di tornare in Italia? Il cibo c'entra? E perché?
Come può una realtà italiana competere a livello internazionale con i giganti del settore? E cosa può dare questa realtà in più, rispetto agli altri?
Ed infine, come si chiama la casa di post produzione più figa d’Italia? E perché proprio EDI?
A queste domande e ad altre ancora meno serie, risponderà Filippo Pax Pascuzzi, giovane regista e co-worker in EDI, La Mecca italiana degli effetti digitali.

Francesco Grisi, born in 1971, after scientific studies decides to dedicate himself to his passion: photography. First in Italy, he works with some photographers from Naples, then in 1993 moves to Paris where he begins to collaborate with fashion agency Marilyn Gauthier. After a little time, thanks to his passion for digital images, Francesco starts working for Buf Compagnie which at that time was a start up company, now it's a leader company in VFX field. During this experience, started in 1994, he first works as compositor and then as supervisor with directors such as Frederic Planchon, Eric Romer, Michel Gondry, David Fincher, on films such as Fight club, The cell, L'anglais et le duc. He also contributed to the opening of Buf Inc., the company's American branch. In 2001, after he married, Francesco and his partner Pasquale Croce decide to focus on the creation of a completely Italian VFX company, trying to boost the limping Italian film market: EDI Effetti Digitali Italiani. During these 11 years of his Italian enterprise, he collaborated to all the most important Italian films and worked with Academy Award winners and internationally well-known directors such as Gabriele Salvatores, Michelangelo Antononi, Nanni Moretti or national glories such as Alessandro D'Alatri and Paolo Virzì. Francesco is also a great wine and food lover, better if sailing his boat with his family. His dream is to export Italian VFX talents around the World.
Filippo Pascuzzi - Author, Director, Digital Video Strategist
I was born in 1983 along with, according to Merriam-Webster's dictionary, the words CD rom, cell phone, cyber punk, megapixel and lap dancing.
I grew up in a small town in Lombardy, Italy, close to the river Adda, and I loved it. The river, not the town.I started at High School with a fiction I wrote at the age of 17 and a small documentary on the city of Prague the following year. I wasn't awarded any prizes for these early works and I was quite annoyed about that. Some recognition did arrive a few years later. But I'm still angry about my first films so I don't want to talk about it.
I moved to Milan just after graduating in cinema direction at the Cattolica University and I started to work in one of the most prestigious production companies, Filmmaster Group.
I have been working with them since 2007, occupying any vacancy they had, including: assistant director, camera operator, casting director, production assistant, production slave, pet. Luckily, not in this order.
I'd love to say that I started working as a director because it was my destiny. But it was probably because I was terrible at production. In any case, I directed my first branded content in 2008.
My career has been an exploration and I have been luck enough to work with some great professionals in various fields.
