Lumen

Who we are

Lumen is a video and photo production company with a special focus on the fashion and luxury market.
 
Our main base is in Milan, but thanks to a wide experience abroad, through relationships with local fixers and other professionals, Lumen produces internationally with the same agility as it does throughout Italy. 
 
We are able to offer a vast network of creative resources and talents, and our lab-like production approach works for both niche and large-scale projects. 
With a made to measure manner, we are happy to take care of art buying, suggesting key figures and proposing the best suppliers based on the specificity of the project. According to clients’ needs, we can follow pre-production to post production, for both print and motion.  

Emanuela Matranga

Executive Producer

I’ve been producing for many years now.
Brought up as a bit of a nomad, with my family never staying too long in one place, I chose to become a producer to continue traveling around the globe.
I began producing video projects and commercials just as I finished my degree in the lively early 2000s.
 
Following a few years of working with the same production company, I decided to go on with it alone and become freelance. This allowed me to work on some unique projects, not only in Italy but internationally, in collaboration with up-and-coming directors and photographers as well as more established talents.
 
During this time, I was also fortunate enough to meet Luca Guadagnino, who became not only a close friend but also a mentor. He helped me shape my creative vision and I began to focus on producing video and print projects for the fashion, luxury and film industries. 
 
After setting up Lumen, I continue working closely with Luca, as his commercial producer in Italy, enjoying amazing adventures together such as the 2019 edition of the Armani Lab (an exclusive Giorgio Armani project to support the next generation of cinema talents) for which Lumen has coordinated the lab, directed by Luca, and has produced the final short film.
