It's nice to meet you
See that tall glass of handsome (at least, according to my mum)? That's me. I'm Carlo and Lunar Red Films is my baby. I've been shooting weddings since 2013.
Once upon a time, I started life as a professional photographer, but somewhere along the way I worked out that 24 frames a second was more my jam.
The name "Lunar Red" comes from a 50's Italian song called "Luna Rossa". The song is a big part of my childhood, and one of my father's favourite tunes of all time. My business name is a tribute to him as he was a major factor in me picking up a camera in the first place.
Why weddings? In the creative industry we talk about pursuing a career with passion. "Do what you love." The truth is every week I get to go out and share in the experience in one of the happiest days in someone's life. I then get to take all of that emotion, that love, that joy, that pure smile-till-my-cheeks-hurt happiness and craft it into a short film that my clients get to relive over and over again.
How is that not the coolest thing ever?
