This cemented Baldini’s reputation as a powerhouse producer in Los Angeles.he is now a representative for the Sardinia Film Commission.
“Italy and Sardegna have so much to give to the international audience”. “In the last year we had several great productions shooting in Sardinia, like Catch 22, with George Clooney and many others. It’s now time to do something that says: Italian Tv series are there to be distributed internationally. This is a good moment for film makers in our country, this is also the time for screenwriters to write something that is not about America and spread it around the world. Our local stories, like My Brilliant Friend and Commissario Montalbano, are always loved when distributed internationally. Apart from big cities, Sardinia has every kind of location a film maker could need”.
