Brad Hasse has left the building

Bradonio ha scopato...um...i mean...e' scappato....

Our inspirational all-round-great-american-guy has left us. The one that proved it was possible to learn italian, win the affections of italian women, men, all fabricanti, and integrate smoothly into italian culture, including coloured pants.

What was life like before Fabrica?
I bounced around the globe quite a bit for both work and for personal experience. I was freelancing as a director/shooter/editor so that gave me the freedom to live like a hobo, but a little more professional.

Most memorable moments?
Wandering down to Puglia (the 'heal' of Italy), looking up the address of where my grandma was born, and cruising around that neighborhood. People started to find out what I was up to, so they would take me door to door trying to find someone that might be related to me. Next thing I know, I'm in the dining room of a family with the same last name as my grandparents. They kept feeding me and pouring homemade wine down my throat, so we sat and talked for hours. We never figured out if we were related, but enjoyed the afternoon all the same.

And of course…
Ogni momento con Tito e Mario, i miei migliori e più scemi amici a Treviso! Fratelli, voi ne avete fatta mille volte più bella la mia esperienza in italia. Vi ringrazio per tutto che mi avete fatto!

Every conversation at "Mom's Pizzeria" or at the "Old Man Bench" or just at the apartment with Scott. I'll miss you bro, come visit soon!

Working CRAZY hours writing with Lottie, psychotically punching out scripts and ideas. Writing with Donovan, and releasing some of the most ridiculous concepts that have come out of my brain in a long time.

Traveling around the world with Alex, filming in some quite different situations, but having a good teammate throughout the whole experience.

Imparando le canzoni nuove (le classiche italiane) durante il passaggio a casa con Piero! Si, si...ho voglia di andare a caaaaaaaaaasa, a casa dove?!

Pranzo con Enrico e tutti da Advertising, "no olio… no party."

And every single morning over a year and a half when I woke up, looked outside, and said to myself, "Wow, I'm actually living in Italy."

What is the plan now?
I just spent some time back at home in Phoenix, Arizona eating some good home cookin' with the family and catching up with old friends. This weekend I'm moving back to Los Angeles and will freelance as a director/cameraman again. I plan on buying a surfboard right away and most likely hurting myself really badly shortly thereafter.

For my own projects, I want to keep shooting short films, but with content and a method that just makes me happy doing it from beginning to end. There's nothing more exciting than creating something and realizing that you've had a smile on your face throughout the entire process.

Last words?

Brad, you are dearly missed...!
