BIO

 

I was born in Montmeló (Barcelona) in 1979. I studied Cinema and Audiovisual Media at ESCAC (University School of Cinema & Audiovisual Media of Catalonia) where I graduated as a Cinematographer in 2001.

 

After working in the camera department for five years, I started new projects as the director of photography. I have been working for ten years with several directors and production companies from Barcelona and Madrid, and in documentary and advertising. I worked side by side with the visual artist from Barcelona Lyona (Marta Puig). Together, we have shot commercials, corporative videos and more than sixty music videos. I love fiction and putting my eye behind the camera. I collaborated in more that ten professional short films, and worked as second camera and in the second unit department of different projects.

 

I am specialized in stop motion. I am used to working with miniature camera and lighting settings in both, advertising and fiction. Short films such as “Lupe & Bruno”, “Violeta”, “Twins of Sunset Street” or “Canis”, all produced by I+G Stopmotion, were awarded nationally and internationally, specially a Gaudí Award (Catalan Academy Awards of Cinema) for Best Short Film in 2011.

 

I was the cinematographer in six documentaries and I worked in a wide range of television programs, including news reports and interviews. I also directed short video pieces for different TV programs. I love shooting documentaries, taking photographs and travelling around the world. My first long-feature documentary is “Kanimambo” (2012), co-directed by Adan Aliaga, Hwidar and Carla Subirana, produced by Edie Saeta, and set in Mozambique. It was awarded with the special mention of the jury in the Málaga Film Festival 2012. This passion for explaining real stories moved me to direct and produce a short-documentary set in Morocco, “Ana Ismi Cárol” (2015). My last documentary project, in which I worked as both, director and cinematographer, is the webdoc “Double Epidemic”. It is an interactive documentary about the HIV/AIDS, set in different African capitals and directed by Marc Serena.

 

I also taught cinematography classes in the ESCAC (2006-2012), and stop motion workshops at 9ZEROS, a stop motion school in Barcelona (2008-2012).
