Marco De Luca

Director


Italian-born Marco’s passion lies in thrillers, horror, and queer cinema. His experience across multiple formats and genres has enabled him to hone his craft and you’ll often find that his work explores the darker sides of human nature. Marco is based in London, is a UK citizen and available to work worldwide.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Marco on different occasions and have always found it a delight. His integrity and sensitivity with both script and artists allied with his ability to inspire crew while being aware of budget and time restraints have made any collaboration a joy."
