Director Biography - Max Carmas, Jeremy Stobre

I am a London based self-taught filmmaker, specialising in cinematic documentaries and storytelling.

Last year I worked as a producer and director on corporate films for the United Nations, The Telegraph and the BBC as part of a worldwide sustainability campaign.

I am now operating as an independant filmmaker, covering a wide range of subjects, styles and techniques : documentaries, shorts, events and more.

Director Statement

This film I am submitting was my very first experience producing, filming and editing a documentary.

This passion project drove my best friend and myself deep in the amazon forest in Ecuador to meet with indigenous tribes who were willing to share their story with us.

Unfortunately, the day before starting shooting, we got robbed in Coca, losing our main camera and lenses.

But we didn't give up and decided to do our best using our small remaining Panasonic GH4.

This film is the pure product of 2 passionate friends and probably the most beautiful experience I had in my entire life as I was learning the basics of what it means being a filmmaker in extreme climate conditions!
