About Me

Hi! My name is Izabella Pitaniello, though I usually go by just Bella. I am a Junior at Emerson College and am currently pursuing a bachelor's film degree. My main focuses in film production lie in editing and makeup.  I also enjoy set design, special effects makeup, and costume styling.  This spring, I won an EVVY for "Outstanding Makeup Artistry" for my special effects makeup in a series I worked on called Genre Away. 
While at Emerson, I have worked on over 12 different student film sets. I have so far worked as an assistant director, editor, assistant editor, camera operator, costume designer, set designer, hair stylist, makeup artist, and special effects makeup artist. I am part of two film organizations at Emerson. The first is Emerson Independent Video (EIV), and the second is the National Broadcasting Society (NBS). 

When I am not perfecting my major, I am the co-president of Emerson's chapter of Best Buddies. Best Buddies is the world's largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical, and economic isolation of the 200 million people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).  I am also part of the Emerson Green Collective (EGC), Emerson Mystic, and Atlas Magazine.
