Today we’d like to introduce you to Carlo Alberto Orecchia.
Carlo Alberto, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was born in Mantova, Italy. I studied business and marketing at the University of Parma, Italy. I’ve been very passionate about filmmaking and photography since I can remember.
I moved to Hollywood In 2011 and since then, it’s been a crazy awesome journey. Every day I get to live amazing adventures and meet wonderful people.
I started from the very bottom in production, trying to connect with many talented people and learn from them. Always working as hard as I could. I think that brought me to where I am today, still, haven’t slowed down a bit! Of course, I haven’t “arrived” yet but I always do the best I can to push my skills and passion and get to the next level.
Now I direct commercials, food shows, travel and lifestyle shows, documentaries and music videos for different productions companies. I do a lot of advertising and celebrities still Photography. And I host shows, the last one is called All The Pizza. Last year I won an Emmy Award with my team of good friends.
Has it been a smooth road?
Incredibly challenging but very, very exciting.
Do you feel luck has played a role in your life?
I feel extremely lucky about all the opportunities I got but I know how hard I worked for them and I think that’s the most important thing: being absolutely ready when the opportunities show up.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I believe in consistency, perseverance, integrity, and professionalism.
Then, of course, having a great time doing what you love. Everyone always wants to be surrounded by that.
But ultimately your personality is what makes you unique and special. Never hide that! People want to work with you because of YOU!
Tell us about your favorite and least favorites things about our city.
I love this town because of the passion that drives everyone. Everyone is here doing or trying to do what they love. LA is also special because the whole world is here. Different cultures from everywhere have imported their precious heritage here and share it with everybody.
I can’t think of anything to dislike about this town (besides traffic) 😉
