Bio

 

I was born in Montmeló (Barcelona) in 1979. I studied Film and Audiovisual Media and graduated as a Cinematographer in 2001 at ESCAC (Escola Superior de Cinema i Audiovisuals de Catalunya).

 

“The Odd-job men” directed by Neus Ballús and produced by Distinto Films and El Kinògraf is my first feature film. It will be released in 2021. I also collaborated on more than twenty professional short-films. In fiction, I worked as a second unit operator for several tv-movies and occasionally collaborated in the weekly Tv-shows “Nit i Dia” (2016-2017) and “El Crac” (2017), both produced by Televisió de Catalunya.

 

In documentary, I shot a film called Kanimambo” (2012) located in Mozambique, codirected by Adan Aliaga, Abdelatif Hwidar and Carla Subirana, and produced by Eddie Saeta. The project was awarded with the Jury’s Special Mention in the Málaga Film Festival.

 

”Me llamo Violeta” (2019) is my last work. The documentary is directed by Marc Parramon and David Fernández de Castro, and produced by Media Pro Studio and Polar Star Films. It took home the Audience’s Award at Docs Barcelona 2019 and the International Amnesty Prize.

 

Within the field of cinematography, my specialization is stop-motion applied to fiction and advertising. I shot commercials for Royal, Nestlé, Manos Unidas, Kettal and also short-films like “Twins of Sunset Street” (2010) directed by Anna Solanas and Marc Riba, which was awarded with the Best Short-Film Prize at the Gaudí Awards in 2011.

 

Additionally, I have worked side by side with the visual artist Lyona (Marta Puig), with whom we have shot commercials, corporate videos, and more than eighty music videos. I also directed some television projects and product videos for the editorials Planeta and Artika. I worked on the webdoc “Double Epidemic” (2016), an interactive documentary about AIDS, directed by the journalist Marc Serena and shot around several African capitals.

 

I taught courses on cinematography in ESCAC (2006-2012) and on Stop-motion Cinematography in 9ZEROS-ECIB in Barcelona (2008-2012).
