)-- Dawna Lee Heising of “Eye on Entertainment” interviewed the President and CEO of Empire Films and international superstar Domiziano Arcangeli about his three 2013 EOTM Award nominations for acting and directing, and about his upcoming film projects. Arcangeli is nominated for Best Actor for "The Ghostmaker" and "Waiting for Dracula," and for Best Director, along with Steve Oakley, for "Waiting for Dracula." He also discussed his new projects, including the upcoming "Night2Night," the lead in Massomiliano Cerchi's "House of Evil" and "Lurker," a psychological dark thriller.
With over 150 film and television credits to his name, Arcangeli is a well-recognized, internationally known star. Arcangeli began his acting career at a tender age, and he has never stopped. Born and raised in Italy, but with an American mother, Arcangeli began his career as a child actor and gradually transitioned into teen and then leading roles. He had the good fortune to work with many of the leading Italian directors of the day, including the legendary Federico Fellini. Since his return to America, Arcangeli has shared the silver screen with many film legends, including Samuel L Jackson, Dennis Hopper, Sean Connery, Brett Halsey, Anita Ekberg, Mickey Rourke and Sir Laurence Olivier.

Arcangeli has appeared in more than one hundred films, ten television series and numerous theatrical productions, both in Italy and the United States. He began his acting career at the age of thirteen in Italy performing in “The Good Soldier” for Academy Award winning director Franco Brusati, which led to work with such masters of European cinema as Federico Fellini and Liliana Cavani. Fluent in English, French and Italian, he has dubbed Jude Law and Mark Wahlberg, and holds dual United States and Italian citizenship.
Arcangeli launched his own production company, Empire Films, in 2009, which has given him the opportunity to branch out and create films that are not only interesting to watch, but are beautiful works of art. So far the films have all been made for relatively low budget, but Arcangeli has been able to realize his visions by creating films that have been recognized all over the world. The company’s films have been released both domestically and internationally theatrically, on DVD and on video on demand (VOD). These films have been well received by critics, and have won major awards. Aaron Benore is the COO of Empire Films.
