Vivi (Veronica Vanessa) Stone grew up in Milan, Italy and moved on her own at the age of sixteen to New York City to pursue her passion for film. She attended The New School where she spent four wonderfully demanding years that formed her knowledge of cinema and nurtured her passion for academia, proudly graduating with Double Honours in 2017.
Vivi supported herself by working as an on-set production assistant on various television shows and features ‘The Blacklist’ for NBC, ‘Flesh and Bone’ for Starz and ‘The Intern’ (2015), as well as an administrative office assistant at Parsons School of Fashion. She also worked as a writer for the Moviepass blog, as an editorial assistant for Film Comment of the Society of Lincoln Center and as the editor’s assistant on the French film ‘Cezanne et Moi’ (2016). Most recently she interned at the production company Radical Media in their Design & Technology department.
As of 2019, Vivi moved back to Milan and worked as a reader of manuscripts for esteemed editors at Feltrinelli, Mauri Spagnol and Solferino, three Italian publishing houses. She was also the official translator for the 2021 edition of the Pordenone Silent Film Festival and juror for MAX3MIN, an online shorts film festival starting in 2019. Vivi’s interests lie in literature, cinema, writing, transcribing and translating.
She is native in Italian and English and proficient in spoken and written French and Spanish.
