Read about Mr. De Cecco
Roberto De Cecco is a free spirited filmmaker. He found out that his dream was to be a filmmaker while applying to engineering schools. Growing up, he would always look forward to renting movies with his family at blockbuster over the weekends, and if you had to ask what that was, don’t worry and just go back to your Netflix! He is studying at Mason’s Film & Video Studies program to be a cinematographer and documentary filmmaker, but he also enjoys very much to teach the next generation about the beauties and wonders of film (unless they ask him what Blockbuster was….he doesn’t like feeling old!).
