Director Biography - Maurício Brunner

Maurício Brunner is a writer/director/DP currently living in Ireland. Maurício grew up in southern Brazil and started his career as an editor in 2006. After a few years, he shifted to the animation industry, working in the layout department on animated TV series. In 2019, Maurício moved to Dublin, still working on animation projects. Live-action has always been a passion, though. In 2021, during the lockdown, Maurício developed his first short film, Invazon, going through all the steps alone, from writing to post-production, including acting. Maurício believes in the filmmaker's responsibility to use storytelling as a tool for reflection and changes to the world. His dream is to write and direct a feature film.

Director Statement

The idea of Invazon started during the lockdown. I had huge limitations because of that, but still, I wanted something engaging and meaningful. After a few weeks of brainstorming with myself, I combined two different ideas I had and wrote the script for the short. I think everyone has had this experience of talking about something and immediately receiving an ad related to it. It's scary, but it's happening more and more with big data. I didn't want to make a blind critique of technology and I think that's clear in the film. However, I believe in the responsibility we have to the world we're helping to build, and filmmakers have this amazing tool called storytelling to bring light to our issues.
