Without Papers Productions
WØPp is an independent production company born out of the collaborative work of Luigi Di Crasto and Santino Di Renzo, dedicated to the making of motion pictures with quality content and limited budget.
Luigi Di Crasto is a filmmaker and abstract painter. He has produced, shot and edited more than 30 videos. He continues to work as a freelance cameraman and video editor for numerous companies, including R.A.I. International. His work has been shown in various exhibitions in Italy, England and the U.S. He holds a BA in Set Design from the Accademia di Belle Arti Roma. He is also obsessed with spiders.
Santino Di Renzo is a film producer and designer. He has been collaborating with Luigi on videos and other creative works for fifteen years. He began as a visual artist with a concentration in drawing and painting, later became a set designer, and currently works as an architectural designer for a cosmetic giant in New York. When he's not working or collaborating with Luigi, he can be found spinning tales about The Great Leader and the land of Leaderonia on his blog. His work has been shown in Italy and the U.S., and he holds a BA in Set Design from the Accademia di Belle Arti Roma.
The two filmmakers met while attending the School of Set Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, Italy. WØPp was originally founded under the name BuzZzer Productions in 1991, and the two-headed company went on to create a diverse array of video projects, including animations and crude fictions. The collaboration was interrupted in 1993 when Santino moved to New York City. It resumed briefly in 1994 for a documentary expedition to South America, and was initiated again when Luigi re-joined Santino in 2001 after a stint in London, where he spent 4 years working for a duplicating service, erasing tapes.
WØPp is committed to following arts-related, socio-economic, and environmental themes.
The Exhibitionists Are is their most recent finished project.
