I am a Colombian TV commercial director... My work in advertisement has given me an approach to the audiovisual language, but at the same time it has distanced me from the “reality” that I’m very eager to explore as an individual and through the camera lens.
Therefore, since some time ago, I am interested in exploring my own documentary language. I am pursuing this exploration by taking the Documentary Production Workshop at The New School in NYC.
In Colombia I have been working as a documentary theory, film history and filmmaking teacher at a range of universities. I have also contributed extensively to a range of workshops around the country organized by the Colombian Ministry of Culture.
I am 35 years old and for the last 14 years I have been producing images for other people and teaching others filmmaking.
Being in NYC has triggered me to do my own film and time to start has come.
