Back to Direction

I’m glad to show my return to directing a music video. Royal Plastic and the Dj Lorenzo al Dino chosen me to Write and Direct the video for their new song Hypnotized.

It is the first project that we develop entirely at Vecinos Films. It was a small group of people filming during 2 day because of a limited budget. The post-production process took 15 exhausting days between the editing, VFX compositing and color grading.

I think that the result is amazing and Carolina Mateu looks gorgeous. It’s very accurate to what the client expected and to what its focus target demands. For the writing I decided to inspire in a movie that I like and talks about obsession: Steven Spielberg’s “close encounters”. I am glad that the video at the end was a humble homage to the film.

Working with the volunteers

 

Voluns is an organization that gives you the opportunity  to deep yourself in environmental and local community projects in the Valencia region.

I have been working with them since 2012 thanks to Viajar y Estudiar that gave me the chance to meet Bea, the person who is in charge of Voluns. Every summer I film their volunteer work performed in Valencia to help publicize the organization.

We now produce their videos on Vecinos Films and last piece in which we collaborate was a summary of all their activities. I think it’s a good opportunity to showcase the work we have been doing together. The edited words of the volunteers make a really inspiring speech. Don’t you think?

Vecinos Films

Jordi and I have been working together since the end of 2013. But it has been now when we have decided to label our activity and we have launched Vecinos Films.

Filmmaker Showreel

Quick summary of my work as filmmaker until february 2014.

Subtitles available in English and Spanish.

Music “Get Blown Away” by Ocen Colour Scene. Audio Mix by Santi Lopez.

I have used the words from a series of interviews about formation that I made while i was working for “Viajar & Estudiar” to describe my vision of my career and how I want to orient it.

The images are from videos that I filmed mostly in the past 3 years. This showreel collects interviews, video marketing content, corporate videos, music videos and timelapses.

About Formation

While I was working at Viajar y Estudiar I did a series of interviews about formation. How is it changing in this technological world and the importance of internationalization for learning.

We talked to Ville Keranen from Monkey Business (Finland) and he explained us his future vision of the work environment. Building organizations for humans to set the space for a better creative thinking.

 

Alfons Cornella founder of Infonomia and Co-society talks about how the youth of today has to carry their lives to where they want to be and how knowing their passions would help them in that road.

 

Erez Tocker is the Managing Director for the travel division of Kaplan. I traveled to London to interview him. He gave us a really practical vision of how to orient our career to reach our goals and a very interesting reflexion about how technology is changing education quicker than ever.

 

I filmed, edited and postproduced the three videos. Maria Carbonell was the interviewer and Bei Ortego designed all the graphics. These interviews inspired me to edit my Filmmaker Showreel.

Animating 2D

Last year we made this video to encourage the spanish youth to go studying abroad. We decided to make an animation video to become more close to our viewers thanks to a very friendly message.

 

My first experience animating 2D has been using After Effects. It´s amazing what you can achieve with a few expressions and the puppet tool. Maria Carbonell wrote the text and Beatriz Ortego designed all the vectors using Adobe Illustrator.
