Shooting Director & Producer

Claudio is a director, cameraman and editor with more than 20 years experience in news, documentary and corporate filmmaking.

As a filmmaker he has had many commissions by major broadcasters. He is probably best known for filming and directing Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman in the highly successful series called ‘Long Way Round’ and ‘Long Way Down’ where Claudio directed and filmed most of the adventure from the back of his BMW motor bike.

Claudio is used to working in challenging environments worldwide – specialising in conflict zones from the mountains of Afghanistan to the rain forests of New Guinea. His extensive background includes the ability to act alone or as part of a larger production team; to balance determination with flexibility, deliver the footage, and to stay on schedule and within budget whatever the circumstances.

Claudio is collaborating on numerous projects with New Earth Films to open a window on topics and issues that appeal to both our production companies.

Claudio runs his own freelance services from Von Planta Productions, which is based in London.
