Director Biography - Luis Sergio JAIME

Luis S. Jaime was born in Paraná, Entre Ríos, Argentina on August 1, 1978, where he completed his primary, secondary and tertiary studies. Graduated as a Graphic Designer, he began to study photography which sparked his passion for cinema. Without having studied the latter, he wrote and made his first short film in an amateur manner and with an almost zero budget, filming at home as a location, and with his pet as co-protagonist; PSYCHOSIS (a suspense-horror short film of only 5 min) earned him the recognition of the 1st. CORTOS DE GENIOS National Contest Award, sponsored by an important credit card, in 2011. Motivated by such merit, he dedicated himself to writing obtaining some awards and special mentions. Returning to the audio-visual medium he adapted a children's story to make an animated series, in a nationwide contest, organized by the state channel PAKA-PAKA which earned him his second 1st. Prize. With several written scripts, he presents NI LA MAS PALIDA (IDEA) as his first semi-professional short film. He is currently shooting his 3rd short film while writing the 4th and 5th.

Director Statement

"NOR THE FAINTEST IDEA" arises "accidentally". I like challenges and I know that making an independent movie is a very big one. The self-demand and the need to prove myself, led me to write a script for a short film.

The problem arises when no idea came to my head. I lived on a constant blank page trying to think what story to tell. Nothing occurred to me. Then it occurred to me to narrate that problem: the empty mind.

Dealing with a blank page can be a headache, be it a writer, painter or cartoonist. "NTFI" teaches that regardless of the circumstances, we must move on. It will be a matter of time and work for inspiration to come. Not stopping or thinking too much is crucial.

NTFI is a comedy-drama with suspense parts and a hint of terror. In this movie my pet XARA has a sub-leading role and was specially trained for this shoot.

The movie (shot in digital format) has an aspect ratio of 2.21: 1 that belongs to the 70mm format, which I think is very nice and cinematographic. VFX was used in several scenes.

The script is original. In this movie I am the director and the protagonist, and after much effort I think I have achieved a piece to entertain the public.

Enjoy it!
