ci-ne-ma feat. Nicole Gilliam

•8 November 2008 • 1 Comment

The other night I got an sms from my beloved friend Nikky, Nicole Gilliam, a New Yorker independent indy Photographer and Filmmaker, who was here in Milan during her great adventure of discovering life, herself, and careers. We really had a good time together especially when living in the same home-sweet-home, undissembledly sharing our own experiences to each other. One of those things was particularly found as a topic about love. Isn’t it classic??


That was what she said.

I doubted that it was a big surprised conclusion of “Mistaken”, a short film project, which we had collaborated in both ideas and production processes during the end of 2007 before she left Milan heading back to where she was supposedly belongs to, the New York City.

Wow .. It has been a year but feels just like I last saw her on last Sunday though. I do really miss you my good friend, eventhough I just couldn’t actually get what did you say sometimes with that NYC’s native accent but I have learned from you a lot how to speak American English. Thanks dude!



“Mistaken” is a short film project of Nicole Gilliam about one girl who is trying to escape from her unknown world. Courageously departed itself from a serie of photo shooting structured by her fastidious story board, in collaboration with PiYA.PONG*, Designer of ci-ne-ma, who originates the costumes for her invited Actress Sasha. “Siamo pronti?!”, is what our imported Siberian friend of us was yet kindly saying while we were already freezing!! Sasha lives her life in Italy as a Russian guide and translator as well as taking her part-time pleasure starring in some indy movies of Italian filmakers. Thankfully for an adorable assist by Tiago, a Portughese one-child-father Lighting Man and Photographer who was unforgetably the Knight.

Every Woman Has a Story

•7 August 2008 • Leave a Comment

Hi there.

Here on I delightfully found a lot of liveliness flowering around. Would really love to say “Thank you” to Titi and Tobi, my two lovely friends, who were my inspiration for immersing myself in writing blogs again.

As seen on  the title saying “every woman has a story”, I would personally like to say that it is such an undoubtedly complete phrase and gracefully finished by itself which could softly describe the significant of being a woman. It unintentionally came into my head when I was wondering what should be a nice and easy conceptual main idea which visualizes the way of being a ci-ne-ma‘s woman, and I smiled to myself as if I have finally found, again, myself.

It is not said that I have successfully created an innovation of linguistics though, hehe :), it is something so simply, tranquil, and endless, which would ordinarily be found in any conversation about women’s life when one would appreciatingly says “Oh dear, every woman has her own story” or some kind of thing. Well, I am talking about the respect for individuals, the admiration on one’s experience, and the touch of sentiment.

Here I found an interesting titled book, by chance, which I say I would have once read it. See how readers have commented for Daryl Ott Underhill on ..

Every Woman Has a Story
Eevery Woman Has a Story is a delightful read. I was impressed with the clever and yet simple idea of compiling a collection of personal stories, crossing socio-economic, ethnic, levels of education and age bounderies. The stories are as different as the women who wrote them, and yet the common thread is that of poignancy, honesty, a struggle to survive and grow, and a touch of humor thrown in for good measure. Some of the stories are simple, others more complex. I found them all to be human, tender and touching. I was particularly moved by Paula Silverberg’s “Leap And The Net Will Appear”. The charming tale of a young woman whose courage and determination in addressing a childhood disappointment, prompted her to face the “failure”, muster the challenge, and, as an adult, emerge triumphant. A lesson for us all – “Feel the fear, but do it any way”. As an added bonus I found the size and shape of the book to be reminiscent of a personal journal, and reading its content made it so much more endearing. Bravo to the ladies as well as the compiler! May we expect another collection soon?
