"As a child I was fascinated by light as "matter"... prisms, reflections in the water, magnifying glasses, light seeping through cracks in a window and projecting shapes and movement from outside (like a camera obscura but, at that time I didn’t know the theory, I just knew it was fascinating)."
One of her most noteworthy experiences as a filmmaker was the experimental video Acción de Ir hacia adelante, for which she also performed the cinematography. With this video, Oggioni participated in the Ibero-American Public Television Screening (Muestra Iberoamericana de Televisión Pública) organized by the ATEI (2004); was nominated at the Argentina Short Dreams (Sueños Cortos) Festival (2004); and took the Award for Best Experimental Film at the Equinoxio Film and Video Festival. She directed the short film El Cuarto, which earned her numerous awards: in 2004, the Best Fiction Award at the Equinoxio Film and Video Festival; Best Storyline and Best Cinematography at the Third CINECUN Imagen en Movimiento Festival; and the Cesares Award for Best Acting, Best Production, Best Cinematography, and Best Editing. She also participated with El Cuarto in the Corto Circuito Festival, at the King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center at New York University; the Santa Fe de Antioquia Film Festival; the Seventh International Video Screening at the 45th Cartagena International Film Festival (2005); Alucine Canada (2006); and the Vancouver Latin American Film Festival (2006), among others.
"One day I came across a shoot in downtown Havana (Cuba) and was impressed by the size and power of the lights; my traveling companion, who had worked as a producer on several films, explained to me how sets worked and told me about the role of each person in the shoot ... it seemed like a fascinating world, but at the same time unattainable (like the beams of light I never managed to catch in the instamatic when I was 11)."
Oggioni was co-director and cinematographer of two documentaries produced by Señal Colombia and the School of Social Communication at the Valle University. El Cielo Anticipado (2005) was selected at the Seventh Bogota International Documentary Screening (2005) and the Twelfth Bogota Film Festival (2006). The second, Los Hijos de la Bestia (2005), was given the Casares Award for Best Documentary Cinematography (2006) and participated in the Seventh Bogota International Documentary Screening; the International Festival of New Latin American Cinema in Havana; the Vancouver Latin American Film Festival; and the International Public Television Screening Conference (INPUT) in Taipei, Taiwan (2006).
In my first years at college I was obsessed with still photography and worked in the lab processing 35 mm negative film and guiding students. However, I became involved in advanced students’ documentary and narrative projects, where I gradually opened a space for myself as a camera operator."
