I'm Ruggero Dalla Santa, an Italian writer and director working in the UK.

‚ÄčI graduated in 2011 from East 15 Acting School and have been working professionally ever since.

My latest short movie, Creation, won Best Picture at the Muybridge Short Film Festival 2017 in London, received an Honourable Mention at the 42nd Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival (2017), and was selected for the Cannes Short Film Corner 2016 and the online section of the Amsterdam Lift-Off Festival 2016.

Over the last five years I have directed over five hundred (yes, 500! Crazy, right?) actors thanks to my showreel-making business, One Foot in the Door Showreels, as well as directing projects like short movies, corporate videos, and web series with my production company, Shivers Above Madness LTD.

I teach a screen acting workshop with seasoned actor Colin David Reese called Screen Acting Skills.

As a screenwriter, I am part of Industrial Scripts' exclusive Overdrive community.

I am currently in development for two feature film projects and a new comedy series.
