Francesco Calabrese


Francesco Calabrese has been interested in storytelling from a young age. He moved to LA to develop his short film Lovely Monster into a feature length film with LionsGate after CAA discovered it. In addition to his successes on the narrative side with a number of shorts that gained a lot of attention, he has worked with a wide range of global agencies crafting visually driven commercials, music videos and internet content.

While he’s shooting commercials all over the world he keeps busy developing more feature film projects, writing scripts and shooting short films. Agency collaborators include Leo Burnett, Y&R, TBWA, Ogilvy, JWT and BBDO for clients such as Gatorade, Jeep, Alfa Romeo, Lululemon and Yamaha among many others.

Fun Fact: since 2012 Francesco collected 5 Vimeo Staff Picks for four shorts and a music video.
