BLUE CINEMA TV was founded in 1999, heir to a three generation-long family tradition of photographic artisans that came into existence in 1929. The mission to “write with light”, starting with the development and photographic printing phase and proceeding on to high definition digital and visual effects, constitutes the distinctive trait of this independent film production company.
Among the works in which BLUE CINEMA TV has been involved in various capacities -taking into consideration the main activity of its Administrator, the Director of Photography Daniele Baldacci– are: IL DOLCE RUMORE DELLA VITA by Giuseppe Bertolucci, MUSIKANTEN and NIENTE È COME SEMBRA by Franco Battiato, IL SACRO MONTE DI VARALLO and DESERTO ROSA by Elisabetta Sgarbi, 6 GIORNI SULLA TERRA by Varo Venturi, ELSA & FRED by Michael Radford, BALKAN BAZAR, BROKEN by Edmond Budina and L’ALTRO ADAMO di Pasquale Squitieri. BLUE CINEMA TV has received three Kodak Awards and six Best Cinematography awards in international film festivals.
BLUE CINEMA TV has reached the ultimate visual frontier by collaborating in the realization of the holographic stage performance “Telesio” by Franco Battiato in 2011. Since then, the company has focused on research and experimental development of new visual immersive technologies through its patented methods OLOS® and HI® – Human Interface, interactive holographic interfaces that reproduce perfectly human expressions and figures.
In recent years, the company has produced films by emerging young filmmakers: the feature film I NOSTRI PASSI DIVERSI by Alberto Bennati (special mention at the Corto Festival and the Cultura Manfredonia Festival 2018, award-winner at the Puglia International Film Festival 2020), the film IL MARE DI GABRIELE by Francisco José Fernández (award-winner at the Blazing Sun Independent Film Shorts Festival of Texas 2020, official selection at the Onirica Film Festival 2020), the short film CORPO by Davide Colaiocco (recognized by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism for its national and cultural interest, award winner at Premi Flaiano 2018, award-winner at the Scrittura e Immagine Short Film Festival 2018, official selection at the David di Donatello Awards 2020), the docufilm PASOLINI.
