Mario Negrini

Video journalist and Filmmaker based in Costa Rica. Have been in the film and tv industry, many of those years working with international press and foreign crews at Brazil. I was graduated in Communication Studies in Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro. Have been building up my carreer as a cameraperson splitting my time between the video journalist works and jobs as director of photography in documentaries, branded content and independent productions. On the News segment I have been working for Al Jazeera, CCTV China, Reuters TV amongst others. On local TV, I was camera operator on Globo TV, the Brazilian biggest broadcaster, having also worked  for many others national tv features. I have been building up a solid and diversified experience: from traditional broadcast companies to the digital media, the skills I have been acquiring through my career gave me the balance between technical and creative work. I will always work hard to bring the audience the best stories, most releveant, inspiring, truly and original, always staring for the things that will connect different cultures.
