Director Statement

My interest in the art of animation was born early as drawing. Since I was child I never stopped drawing. It never ceased to fascinate me this type of expression.

This technique of creating moves me through what moved the first
animators, the fact that the artistic work has its own movement. In my case, to transmit a story or idea is another concept instigator.

During my studies in fine arts I learned the production process and I have not stopped creating new works on my own: making preproduction (storyboard, technical screenpay, literary screenplay, card of filming and layout); production and postproductión (mounting and effects).

During the Master I majored in Master's Thesis with my theoretical / practical work "developments in technique and aesthetics in animation. New Forms of Creation ", where I talked about all branches of animation from classical to experimental, from its beginnings to the present.

My workflow in animation is very broad: the classic drawing perforated sheets with light table; rotoscoping; digital drawing; to experimental mixing fluid animation, drawing on toilet paper, drawing fire and projection in urban environment.

My influences are very diverse. of course, the first experimental
animators as Oskar Fischinger and Walter Ruttmann, furthermore contemporary authors as Vjsuave, through Wendy Tilby, Amanda Forbis and Borge Ring.
