Hi, I am Jory.

I am a filmmaker, but first and foremost, I am a dreamer. I was born in Catania, Sicily. I was 14 when I moved to Lecce, Puglia and it was there, years later, where I met my life partner, Betti, an illustrator and graphic designer. Together we soon founded “Doryfera Visulas,” our communication agency.

Video and Photography have been my profession since 2006. Since then, I have been producing news and documentaries for national television stations, taking me traveling all over Italy and even to Brazil.

Besides the digital, I also work with analog film photography. Actually, I shoot, develop, and print my own photographs, all on my own. My passion for analog film photography has made me move the kitchen into the open space of my house to create an extra room where I’ve built a darkroom!

However, I express my art also with music, playing guitar and synth with my two Math-Psych Rock bands “Uro” and “Le Scimmie sulla Luna” and been touring in Italy, England, Scotland, and Japan. Also, I have a solo electronic music project called “Outo.”

I have devoured the novels of Philip K. Dick and the digressions of Thomas Bernhard. I am fascinated by the films by Yorgos Lanthimos and Nicolas Winding Refn, whose work has inevitably influenced my way of perceiving and narrating the world around me.

Oh, and I absolutely love roasted eggplants!

“Jory… this is amazing.

You captured our day and so many special moments perfectly. The cinematic quality is incredible.

Thank you so so so much for this stunning memory that we can relive over and over.

Big hugs from Canada!!”
