International actor and creative director with 20 years of experience willing to empower students to express their full potential.

Methodology

My teaching methodology is always bespoke and based on the talents needs.
The session will usually contain : Check in/Meditation/feelings before starting, vocal/body exercises, improv, cold reading and preparation of scenes.

With the student/s we could decide and pick 2 or 3 areas to focus on in each session and then switch as we go, to keep improving as an actor and creative.

Ambassador

Experience

Hello talent,

With over twenty years of experience and some big challenges that I’ve been through I could be the right person to empower you to express your full potential even more.

I’ve started my career as an actor/creative director 20 years ago in a small town in South Italy Puglia when I quit university to follow my dreams. After many doors closed for me and 10 years working my way up, studying, focusing on my self development, I had a break through in 2011 becoming the worldwide ambassador/face of Martini brand replacing George Clooney.

I’ve been working since then with A list directors, productions and brands all around the world in front and behind the camera, I am also a published writer and transformational coach certified ICF and with the creative production company I co-own, I help brand and private clients to express their need of telling a story or enhancing an existing one.

If you need the point of view of a down to earth person, happy and genuinely wanting to share his life experience in the business and in the creative world and how to follow the freedom of expressing yourself, and achieve your goals, I am your man.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Best

Yuri Buzzi

Yuri's CV

Ciao and welcome to my CV page.

I am an actor, creative director and transformational coach with the passion for poetry and photography.

I was born in Vigevano in 1978. At the age of twenty I left Puglia and went to study at the School Of Cinema in Rome (Acting & Directing) and subsequently at The Actor Centre in London.

In July 2019 I have completed my accredited ICF diploma, in life coaching at the Animas Centre for Coaching in London.

I have travelled a lot with my work and I have had the pleasure of working with numerous directors such as Paul Feig in the movie Spy, produced by 20th Century Fox, Mandie Fletcher in the movie Patrick for Walt Disney UK, Jordan Scott and Peter Thwaites in the worldwide campaign for Martini & Rossi produced by Gorgeous film and RSA Film, Angelo Longoni in the movie "Tiberio Mitri - The champion and the miss", Luca Lucini in the movie "Just Married” and also with Alessandro D'Alatri on several campaigns for major brands such as Telecom, Dreher, TIM and Repubblica…

I love writing. I find it really therapeutic. My first book "My life on a cactus" a collection of 32 poems and a monologue for theatre, was published in 2008 by Casa editrice Giuseppe Laterza & figli.

My passion for theatre made me write and direct “I will not go down from here” an extract from my book, which won a Theatre Award In Naples at the Naples Cultural Classic (A monologue about suicide, which caught the attention of the newspapers).

My point of view as a director emerged from being on both sides of the camera and my passion for photography has developed alongside moving images.

In 2014 I relocated to London and joined Najma Bhatti at Four55 Ltd our Creative Agency, where my skills in writing and co-directing have created a great symbiosis.

Our latest success has been creating, directing and producing the opening show at the DIFF (Dubai Film Festival 2016) which won gold at the Muse Creative Awards. In advertising we have won Platinum at the Hermes Creative Awards with the TVC Bleu the Chanel written, directed and produced by us. We have also worked on the Lana Del Rey TVC “Honeymoon” advert and at the last Campaign for Boots, No 7 Serum, alongside the BAFTA award winning director Tom Harper starring Prima Ballerina Alessandra Ferri.

Grazie to been part of my journey.

Yuri is able to identify your true self and motivate you to bring it in tangible life goals. He inspire to bring the best that you have inside, that sometimes you never had identifyed before, outsourcing yours most genuine feelings to generate actions. With him, I am able to discover new values and don't focus in others that doesn't make sense for this life cicle. And add on that, brings knowledge and intensity to your goals and desires, applying daily. Guides how to focus in the present reducing overthinking, reaching better achievements. I'm thankful for Yuri and strongly reccomend him. You'll discover a new you and will be honest to who you are in this life stage.

I highly recommend Yuri for his lessons on positive thinking and motivation, as well as being an amazing Life Coach and Mentor.
I have known Yuri for about 4 years and he's assisted me tremendously in getting my life into more perspective.
He is highly intelligent, trustworthy, patient, understanding, generous, kind and able to pinpoint the problem and provide possible solutions and help you see things from different perspectives.
I follow Yuri's helpful posts on social media and know he's always there for me.
I'm forever grateful to Yuri.

Interview with Yuri

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you start practicing? How did this passion find you?
Yuri — I started practicing 10 years ago, when I discovered the powerful feeling of fulfilment that helping people in achieving their goals was giving me. It is there that I implemented my knowledge in acting and directing along with the skills of mentoring and coaching. In particular my interest has been working with people who are at an impasse in their lives and they would like to discover and express their full potential.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Which artists or works affect you the most?
Yuri — I respect Matthew McConaughey a lot as both an actor and inspirational person. Daniel Day Lewis is astonishing with his work on characters in movies. Less Brown an amazing motivational speaker, really good in mixing humour with development and personal growth.
QUESTION 03 | 08
What are the qualities and skill required to succeed in this area?
Yuri — To succeed in being an actor, public speaker or any other work or passion out there, I advise something that could help you to get a more clear direction and it's to strongly know the "why" are you doing something (the motive)? How this is making you a better person than you are right know? How are you going to know when you have achieved the goal that you are pursuing? Those are the basic questions that I advise to ask to yourself before you even start thinking of your training, formation. Qualities and skills can be achieved when your mind has a clear vision.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What is the most valuable advice you can give to help someone stay focused on creative projects?
Yuri — One of the most valuable advice that has been helping me a lot in really difficult moments is to create a space/moment in your routine where you can pause and completely be yourself, in order to recharge mind and body. I usually start with an exercise to reconnect myself with the present moment and pause before I can push all force ahead again. Slow, deep, long breaths can help you maintain a sense of calm or help you return to a calmer state and balance. Once you find your breath, go through the following steps to help ground yourself:


5: Acknowledge FIVE things you see around you. It could be a pen, a spot on the ceiling, anything in your surroundings.


4: Acknowledge FOUR things you can touch around you. It could be your hair, a pillow, or the ground under your feet and feel if you can the texture.


3: Acknowledge THREE things you hear. This could be any external sound. If you can hear your belly rumbling that counts! Focus on things you can hear outside of your body.


2: Acknowledge TWO things you can smell. Maybe you are in your office and smell pencil, or maybe you are in your bedroom and smell a pillow. If you need to take a brief walk to find a scent you could smell soap in your bathroom, or nature outside.


1: Acknowledge ONE thing you can taste. What does the inside of your mouth taste like-gum, coffee, or the sandwich from lunch?
QUESTION 05 | 08
How would you describe your passion; how does it make you feel?
Yuri — My passion is a constant fulfilling buzz of discoveries, that feeling of freedom of expression that doesn't hold back.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What creative achievements are you particularly proud of?
Yuri — I was really proud when I started my career, the fact that I signed a life changing contract with a big brand that helped me financially and in my personal growth to let me discover better that success and money are not always what makes you happy and fulfilled. I am really proud of my coaching and mentoring business, the creative agency Four55, with my business partner in London and we are now launching a new luxury accessories brand Buzzi Italia.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Have you ever been surprised by a student; by their ability or quick progression?
Yuri — Yes I love the possibility of a double way growth, i learn a lot from my students, they have really powerful ambitions.
QUESTION 08 | 08
Being a Superprof is an art! What is your secret?
Yuri — My secret is my quality of being genuine.
