Victor Fanucchi is a writer, filmmaker and teacher, whose interests lie mainly in storytelling, both comedic and dramatic, through visual media. He began teaching at the University of Michigan in 2004 as a Visiting Lecturer after living and working in Los Angeles for several years, where he made short films and did a variety of film work, including editing award-winning trailers for independent films and organizing film series and filmmaker appearances in the Film Department of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. His video production training began in a high school vocational program and continued through experimental video workshops with video artist Ken Feingold in Princeton University's Visual Arts Program.
His features and shorts have played in numerous film festivals around the country and have often involved students in opportunities for on-set learning. He also worked with the University of Michigan administration to turn a university "industrial" video into a chance for FTVM students to learn about specific equipment and workflows they hadn't encountered in their production course work.
