Director Biography - Gia Zapata

Gia Nicole Zapata Lorenzo is a Chavón The School of Design student born in the Dominican Republic. Her pieces are usually fictional, giving voice to stories, either through the characters or the plot. The areas where she develops best are in script and animation. She has worked with Super 8, 16mm and digital mediums. She has touched on personal themes in pieces, but that's not usually her habit.
Her vision as a creator relies on imagination, taking references from movies, books and painting, to videogames, comics and life itself. Deals with serious issues in contexts that are not so serious, always looking for different ways to communicate what she wants to express beyond words, making sure that her characters feel like people going through something, rather than means to an end.
