Director Biography - Elmer Zambrano Audiovisual

I was born in Barquisimeto, Venezuela. I studied Law at the Universidad de Los Andes and graduated as a Lawyer in 2001. I was just a moviegoer, when I was a kid I watched Betamax movies that my father rented, I remember there were between 7 to 10 movies to watch on a weekend.
I also went to the cinemas that were in the city, before they disappeared due to the implementation of multiplexes of the chains in the shopping centers. Then in 2007, I was looking for a workshop on photography, to distract myself from my work in the courts, I found a film workshop, and I did it, I ended up falling totally in love without knowing that my desire would be to dedicate the rest of my life to audiovisuals. I obtained my title (diploma) as Audiovisualist in 2008 and Social Communicator, Human Development mention in 2015.
I am a reference in Cinema and Photography in the National System of Popular Cultures in Venezuela, I am registered in the National Autonomous Center of Cinematography in the areas of CAMERA, DIRECTION OF PHOTOGRAPHY, STILL PHOTO, PHOTOGRAPHY AND AUDIOVISUAL SCRIPT. I am also registered as an Independent National Producer. In my country there are economic and political obstacles that prevent freedom of expression and creativity, however, I continue trying to create and share with others the audiovisual language that I am so passionate about...

Director Statement

This short film was made in approximately 3 hours, among a group of acquaintances and friends, who met on a Sunday afternoon to share and decided to distract themselves by doing something different: brainstorming, invented a story and straight to action! It was recorded with a camera in hand, direct sound, with the sole intention of integrating as a group and demonstrating that they could tell a story audiovisually...

They raised several ideas, they chose by majority the story that convinced them as the best proposal; the dialogues were spontaneous, flexible, without rehearsals. The edition was done in about 3 more hours (first cut), the group met again a week for a first viewing and to give their impressions, they gave their approval and minimal comments
to modify, this was the final result...
