Hi my name is Mabul Marulanda Montoya and film, television and media are my passion.
Everyday I’ve been learning how to improve my creativity and imagination by practicing a myriad of techniques while editing projects for my friends, filming stories for my class assignments, and documenting incredible topics.

I’ve experienced the excitement of being in front of a camera as an actor and the responsibility of being behind the camera as a filmmaker with the entire responsibility for all aspects and stages of production.

I’m interested in creating stories with positive messages. I believe that everyone in society must be treated with respect.

Hopefully after watching the film, The Colorblind Painter the audience will engage in meaningful discussions with family and friends
