Francesca Nobili

Freelance Copywriter & Videographer

Location:Milan, Lombardy, Italy
2 Skills
After a significant experience in Ogilvy Milan, where I had the opportunity to work across all divisions, in an international environment, and specialize in pitches and new business, I have began to work as a freelancer and, in few years, I am proud of working for many international agencies as copywriter, transcreator and consultant: I adapt the international creativity to the Italian market, provide VO direction and cultural and social consultations. I also work for selected Italian agencies and production companies as concept creator and copywriter, especially on pitches, new business and launches of new products.

Moreover, I am the founder of Circle Entertainment, a creative lab that is giving birth to projects such as Brandin'Movie, the Italian database of TV and cinema product placement, and creating short movies, some of which are achieving resounding success at film festivals in Europe and USA.
