Motion Pictures and Film | Other, OO
Originally from Colombia, I finished my Master's degree in direction of Photography in the Polish National Film, Television and Theatre School in Lodz, Poland.
In 2011 I won Silver Tadpole in Camerimage for the cinematogrpahy in Piotr Złotorowicz's "Normal People".
Recently finished shooting Sebastian Buttny's debut feature "Heavy Mental". Shot on location throughout Poland.
I have been working with most formats available to cinematography, ranging from Fisher-Price PXL cameras to 35mm, passing through HD, RED One and 16mm.
My work has taken me to collaboration with an international pool of directors and locations beyond my country's borders. Last year I finished shooting two short animated films for Oscar winning Breakthru films, with directors Dorota Kobiela and Adam Wyrwas. Both are stereoscopic films shot in stop motion.
Although always developing, I have focussed my work on building images that enhance the story without over-riding it, working on camera work that attempts to be honest and emotional at the same time.
Specialties: Most of my recent fiction camera work has been done using a rather intimate approach. It is mostly handheld and character driven.
35mm, 16mm: worked with Arri, Moviecam, Panavision and Konvas cameras.
