It’s no exaggeration to say Lino went straight from school to Hollywood (though it was only to study film making at Columbia College). After that he did a stint as an intern in the camera department of Studio Hamburg where he worked his way up all the way to Camera Assistant.
But the flame of film-making was lit and he soon decamped to the London Film School. In his final year he won the Kodak Student Commercial award foreshadowing his future career.
Ever since then he’s been directing commercials and picking up awards all over the world. He shoots mainly cars including Audi, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Hyundai, Jaguar, Lexus, Renault, Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota and VW. In the last two years he’s become the go-to guy for BMW.
