Daniele Russo, was born in Sicilia. He graduated at DAMS (cinema course) in November 2009 while working in "Cinematografica light service" to gain set experience.
He then started writing and directing independent short films and documentaries.
In 2010 he won the Green Screen Fest of Belgrado with the documentary named "Spazzatura".
In those years Daniele led some school laboratories making short films on social issues with students, among which stand out "Invisibile" and "Bimbo per gioco", which is about child soldiers.
In 2011 this young director writes the script of "Pagate Fratelli", a long film with actors of the caliber of Tony Sperandeo, Luigi Maria Burruano and Salvatore Lazzaro.
The following year Daniele addressed a subject so dear to him, which was mental disease (before DAMS he got a Psychology degree). The short film "6 personaggi in cerca d'amore", acclaimed by critics, won many awards (like the festival of "Corto e cultura") and it was chosen to be projected in cinemas before the movie "Intouchables".
In 2013 Daniele moved in Milan where he got a master degree in Music and Performing Arts, and where he currently works as DOP, for independent short films and documentaries, and Filmmaker for emerging artist's videoclips.
The latest short film directed by Daniele, "Per non disturbare" (2017), is a finalist in Italian and international film festivals, with a special mention from TN Film Festival "For making modern and alive the Kafkaesque message of metamorphosis of a man that endure the surround ambient decisions rather than seize the moment and make your dream come true".
