Alex Oriani



My main goal is to create stories that are as original as possible. I think that if you have to risk a failure, you had better do it trying something new; failing while copying is more than any writer should bear. As for my experience, I have written and directed documentaries and short films. One of them, First Class, won the Cinecittà Digital Screenplay Award and was screened at festivals such as the Montreal World Film Festival and the Venice Int. Film Festival and was one of the three winners of “The Short Film Contest” in Los Angeles.  As a story editor/scriptwriter, I have written for some Italian TV shows, mainly comedies and situation comedies. Working as a story editor on the set for a sitcom is a great way to learn that your writing is not the Holy Bible and that (almost) everything can be improved, probably the Holy Bible too.
