Filmmaker /Photographer/ Marketing Consultant

Daniel De Simone

Who I am

I'm filmmaker, photographer and marketing consultant. The first two activities are basically related to my two main passions. And marketing has to do with the knowledge of all forms of diffusion/distribution of audiovisual material, as well as the creation of advertising campaigns for independent professionals or companies. It is not strange, however, that these areas interact with each other. I detail them below:

my three areas of activity

My background is basically audiovisual and expands to the universe of marketing. I have provided audiovisual services for more than 30 years to companies/producers and independent professionals in Argentina, Brazil and Germany. My work is client-focused, and this is always developed in a personalized way, looking for the best advertising solution, taking into account the technology, the platform (e.g. Websites, Facebook, Instagram) and the capture format (video and/or photography).
My working areas are divided into three main fields:

MARKETING

I have more than 17 years of experience in Marketing field, with specialization in Email marketing, Viral Marketing and Social Marketing (Facebook and Instagram). I use important tools such as SEO, Adwords, and Facebook Ads, developing campaigns through my company DDS Media & Marketing. My current work is focused on one-to-one Marketing, using email marketing tools, along with social networks, and the using of various multimedia resources (basically video & photography).

FILMMAKING

It´s been more than 25 years working with video, starting with the concept or script, recording, editing or streaming, in different formats and resolutions, for TV channels, Independent Producers and Service Providers.
Such works have been mainly TV programs, video clips, advertising campaigns, political campaigns and others, in Argentina, Brazil and Germany markets.

PHOTOGRAPHY

It is an old passion that began to develop from the year 2000. My photography can be considered experimental. It basically seeks to capture the human element in relation to its environment. In this sense, black and white is generally more appropriate. But of course, at a professional level I do much more varied work, seeking to portray the vital, the emotional, regardless of the environment in which I work. I have worked in the markets of Sao Paulo and Berlin.

Luck is persistence on the goal.

THE SUPERMARKET


I remember I had to make a recording for an important Cable channel. I was working at that time as an "outdoor" cameraman. This task should always be carried out with the help of an assistant, who took care of sound, light and other technical issues.
That day, my mission was to record as many images as possible inside the supermarket. Obviously the quality was also important. When I arrived at the channel, my boss told me the assistant was sick. Therefore, I should make the images on my own, without any help. Resigned, I went to the place. I got to the super.
With my humble 8mm camera, I started recording. I wanted to portray, in the richest possible way, the daily activity inside the super.
After an hour, my sensation was strange. I felt I had not "vibrated" enough. In fact, the material seemed poor, repetitive, tired. Visually monotonous. And then, I questioned myself about the real possibilities of doing something eye-catching inside a supermarket. Yes, I reflected on this for a while... It is possible to do something more interesting (or striking), but with more sophisticated equipment. Not with my modest 8mm camera..
At that moment, the "enlightenment" came. Without thinking too much, almost instinctively, I spoke with an employee. I got into one of the carts, camera in hand. And I asked the guy to push me. We started a strange trip through all the supermarket shelves. It was a delicious journey across packages of sugar, milk sachets, cookies, which seemed to be more radiant as the excited horizontal movement progressed.
And what was the result? The images were stunning at that time. When I returned to the channel, people asked me: How could you do that on your own?
The story has a unique and powerful message. A message that applies to any activity, on any scale. It's about giving yourself to what you're doing, committing more to magic than the limitations. Giving yourself more with the heart than with the head. And make the most of the minimum resources. It is something that can expand, and even be part of your philosophy of life. It was this way in my case.
Because we talk about something is not so measurable or tangible.

The passion..
