-Berserkr- The Recovered footage

Feb 26 2013

Recently, I was working on my most recent silent film “Berserkr” when my Hard Drive died and I lost all the footage we spent a summer filming. Fortunately I have enough rough edits to compile some footage together…these scenes dont reperesent the true version of the film but they are at least the only proof the movie existed.

-Traveling Players Ensemble- Director of the Tempest

Feb 15 2013

In the summer of 2012 I had the amazing opportunity to work with Traveling Players Ensemble. Jeanne Harrison the brilliant and wonderful camp founder and director hired me as the High School Ensemble Director of the Shakespeare production “Tempest”. I directed to different ensembles in 4 week blocks. The really interesting thing about this camp is its focus on training kids in the outdoors and touring a production at the Shenandoah National Park.

Here is a video about the camp. You can see clips of the play I directed and other shots myself directing the students.

-The King Stag- 5 Star review and Feature Article

May 17 2012

I was fortunate to receive a lot of positive attention in the press for the Production of King Stag I directed at the Folsom Lake College. Barry Wisdom of the Sacramento Press did a feature article on me as a director and the relevance of Commedia Dell’Arte and SN&R gave the show 5 stars.

The show went over really well with the audience every night.

-Glasnost- Famiglia Marching Band Street Performances

Oct 01 2011

During my 3 years of study at Dell’Arte International my fellow classmates and it created the Glasnost Famiglia Marching Band. We were a Character band who played on the streets during events and festivals. This was a side project non-related to the school. We were invited to many cabarets, fundraisers, and events where we would perform a full set of music for the crowds. . This became something we did in our past time as we started to gain some fame in the Hunboldt area. We were regularly appearing and performing throughout 2007-2009. We were featured twice on KHSU and played on the streets of San Francisco during the christmas season.In the Fall of 2009 it was decided that Glasnost would be the Dell’Arte companies holiday show production. We toured a family friendly version of “The Glasnost Family Holiday Show” under the direction of Joan Schirle.

-The Iliad- News Review

Mar 22 2011

We received our first review today from the Berkeley Daily Planet.

Daily Planet review

And here is a review from the Playwright George Birimisia’s blog

“…Then we went to see an avant garde production of THE ILIAD at the INFERNO THEATER in Berkeley. Indeed it was an INFERNO with the gorgeous young actors writhing acrss the narrow stage that was covered with Turkish blankets.  This brilliant, imaginative adaptation was written and directed by Giulio Cesare Perrone  although it got wordy in spots. Jamie Van Camp as ACHILLES  was powerful until an arrow pierced his Achilles heel. His performance was outstanding–and I could tell that  this was real ENSEMBLE ACTING. I was impressed.”
