About

I am a Multimedia content creator & IT engineer

I have valuable experience in filmmaking at almost any role, however I consider myself especially competent as Writer, SelfShooting Director and AV Editor. In the design area, I have gathered some experience with 3D and 2D software at advertising and branding works, also as front-end web developer with HTML5 technologies and Javascript. As engineer, I have solid programming skills with a focus on Object-Oriented Languages and modern Agile Methodologies.

Experience

An overview to my work experience

My working experience is a bit difficult to evaluate. Firstly because of the wide range of roles I can perform and the temporary nature of most of the jobs that took me busy in the last years. In second place, because of the economic circumstances of my country and their impact on a sector (media) with very poor demand of highly specialised professionals.

I would like to show off big brands and companies in this page, but most of my relevant experience is in the freelance field when personal circunstances allowed me to work. Please, do not let this mislead you about my skills. Remember that the best way to apraisse someone is watching him in action!

Experience in the media field

Film & Video Productions

Freelance

since 2008

Involved in over 40 video productions of different budgets (many of them short movies), with a profile gradually focused on postproduction.

I have worked as Director, First and Second Assistant Director, Runner, Writer, Script Supervisor, Cinematographer, Art Director, AV Editor and VFX Compositor, depending on circumstances. I have supported also free collaborations and side-projects as Writing Consultant, Video Editor and VFX Compositor.

But foremost, when no other projects on horizon, I write things.

35mm Fiction Movie (13')

"Interés Variable"

2010

This was my first work shooted in 35mm as Director (I have other short movies in DV). I am not very proud of the final result, but it was exhibited in over 30 International Film Festivals around the world (not so bad!).

Considering the high budget, the size of the team, the huge production problems and my overall responsibility trying to keep things going on, I guess it is in some way a milestone in my career. If I survived that I can survive the hell on earth.

Experience in the design field

Pueblo Trigo

Brand Designer

2017

My first work as brand designer and web developer.

The existant brand, formed by the union of 10 bakeries, was rethinked and updated to show a more elegant image with a premium appearance in the packaging and advertasing elements. The website was also updated, replacing early 2000's technology with a custom-made Wordpress.

A plan for progressive implementation was presented in order to avoid high initial costs and drastical changes in the shops. The project was accepted but it is still not in use.
