Alessia Gatti is an Italian actress, filmmaker and producer born in Fano, a small seaside town located on the eastern coast of Italy. She's the creator of "Hands of New York", mini documentary series filmed in NYC and the founder of Acid Green Productions. She began acting at age 13, honing her craft at the renowned Hamlet International School in Pesaro, Italy. After graduating from high school, she moved to Rome where she studied Communication at La Sapienza University. The same year she was accepted into the Scuola di Cinema where she met the acting coach, director and actress Anna Gigante who recognized her deep passion for acting. In the summer of 2010 Alessia flew to New York City for one month to personally study with famed acting coach, Susan Batson. At the same time Alessia met the actress and director Jordan Bayne and began consistently studying with Jordan. Alessia is one of the original members of The Lab - NY, an international community founded by Jordan Bayne, of actors and filmmakers who are creating exciting works in film and theatre on a global scale. Recently she expanded her directing work to include short films, short documentaries, and commercials, and most recently she directed three videos for the Expo Milan representing her region Marche. Alessia has also won several awards for her commercials for Barilla, Menicon France, William Hill, and TV5 France. Alone/Together and Greener directed by Alessia Gatti were accepted into the Love Film Festival 2017 and Santa Fe Film Festival 2016. In 2015 Alessia founded the Greenwich Village Film Festival in her adopted home, New York City.
Filmography   

filmmaker's note
Oatmeal wants to be a breath of fresh air, a pause from the daily stress. In a city like NYC where we’re forced to run and chase our dreams, pursuing careers and expectations we can easily lose focus and follow a routine that brings us to connect only through social media, to be on our smartphone and computer 24/7. Oatmeal is an escape to the usual daily life in search of the lost inner child, the memories and hopes every child has, to reconnect with what really matters and ultimately ourselves.
