Far From Home Productions
Far From Home Pictures is a film company
founded by Emanuele Pecorari, Luca Pelosi, Carlo Maria Straqualursi
and Riccardo Tappo. This team of Italian expatriates moved to the
UK and began their documentary film-making venture.
Emanuele Pecorari took advantage of the
Proof of Concept funding and Create Innovate Achieve programmes run through
the Create Business Office at York St John University and CidaCo,
part-financed by the European Union. His main goal was to gain
knowledge on starting up a new business.
The programme far exceeded his initial
aims. From a comprehensive understanding of how the UK market
works, to seeking out his main customers, Emanuele
learned specific techniques in learning to approach business
partners and his consumer base. More importantly, he
began to learn more about branding and developing the image of the
company, becoming a more professional venture.
As a result of his interaction with the
Creative Business Office, their team at Far From Home
Pictures has earned more commissions. Two such commissioned
documentaries are Rione Rocca, filmed in Italy, and
Massimo Canevacci, filmed in Brazil.
