Why Dr. Zoom? For two reasons;
The first is because Alberto Engeli's professional background is photography.
The second is much more exotic and much simpler at the same time.
"stealing" the name of one of Bruce's first bands, "Dr. Zoom and the Sonic Boom". Alberto is "Born to Run" and has come to this "Promised Land" to "Follow his dreams", with the desire to produce a special television event (not only a TV event, actually, but we cannot say more) with Bruce. An event which would be the first of its kind.

I have the ability to tell a story visually incorporating all forms of media and styles.

I can cut footage like a surgeon or shoot pictures like a sniper,
and create stories that challenge people to think.

My greatest communication tools are a keyboard and/or a camera,
my editing and my shooting are "bleeding edge", and I realize that when it comes
to telling a story visually, less is more.

I know how to make Final Cut Pro and/or my camera sing and dance,
as "The Boss" does with his guitar, and easily embrace new Production Technologies.

Instead of a video containing several clips of my various shooting and editing work, I prefer to use this clip as my reel.
I visualized, shot, edited and color-corrected it (using FCP/Color Corrector).

By the way, the train conductor shown in this clip is me ... a cameo.
