Born in 1973 on the island of Malta, Malcolm Scerri-Ferrante began training on sets when barely 17 and during his teens produced a radio and TV series for the national broadcaster about international filmmaking in Malta. At 21 he worked as a production manager on a Finnish-UK co-production and at 22 he joined a fledging TV station as a full-time producer. Three years later he won a national award and international nomination for his Austrian-Maltese co-production "A Gentleman from Malta", a documentary that aired on ARTE and PBS Malta. In this time he also directed MTV's first Flemish music video "Laat me Maar" which involved challenging setups at sea and in the air. At 25 he was appointed by Toronto's Catalyst Entertainment to create and head marketing and production departments at its newly acquired water SFX facility "Mediterranean Film Studios", taking it into its busiest year (1999). He created reports for local government on the setting up a film commission and was subsequently appointed on the government's film advisory board where he lobbied for the introduction of financial incentives which were eventually introduced in 2005. He then returned to cinema as a freelance production manager and became known for The Count of Monte Cristo, Eragon, Asterix & Obelisk vs Cleopatra and Wickie The Viking. In 2001 he set up the island's first production service company, The Producer's Creative Partnership, which serviced ambitious commercials for high profile clients including Volvo, Bacardi, L'Oreal, Shell, Chanel and Coca Cola. Besides Malta, his work has taken him to Colombia, Canada, South Africa, Hungary, Slovakia, Italy, UAE, Jordan, Romania and Morocco. He has worked with such directors as Guy Ritchie, Oliver Stone and Kevin Reynolds, with stars that included Jeremy Irons, Madonna, Sharon Stone, Rami Malek and John Malkovich. He is best known for cost-controlling and maximising production value. He occasionally conducts workshops abroad in film production management and is a full member of The Production Guild of Great Britain.
