Hello! My name is Nino Del Padre. I’m a Music Video and Commercial Director.
Writing about yourself is always weird. But, until we have a chance to sit down and actually get to know each other, here’s a few things that you should know.
Nino Del Padre, a music video and commercial director who’s been shooting music videos, commercials, shorts, corporate and promotional spots professionally for over twenty years. Clients include Aimee Allen, LEGO, Deftones, NASA, Tama Drums, NetFlix, Ibanez, Alice In Chains…etc. Learning through hands on experience and devotion to the art, Del Padre continuously strives to push beyond his own boundaries.
Twenty years of experience in working with diverse groups in different media environment design, directing creative materials and music video production in multiple formats for mass media, advertising, information technology and entertainment industries. His specialty is a unique mix of stylized narrative approaches blended with a deep understanding of the post production process, 3D animation and interactive media. Del Padre balances shooting music videos and commercial work, using his diverse skill set to maximize short form campaigns.
Although Del Padre has always put technology second to story telling, it would be the RED ONE Digital Cinema Camera that would help define him as a true innovator. The RED ONE Digital Cinema Camera, is the worlds first high end camera that shoots in a format that rivals 35mm film. The RED ONE camera shoots in 4K, a digital format that is four times the resolution of 1080P high definition video. Most broadcast music videos and feature films are shot with this technology.
Del Padre was an early adopter of the technology and has recently reserved the next generation cinema camera from Red Epic. The name is not an overstatement. The much anticipated addition to the RED family is the answer to the professional’s wildest dreams and exists as the most sophisticated and capable camera ever engineered and built. In a package one third the size of a RED ONE, resides a 5K Mysterium-X™ sensor and a 27 layer ASIC, the most advanced processor of its type in the world, enabling EPIC to capture up to 300 frames per second, each frame at full 14MP resolution.
