About

I specialise in 2D animation and film direction with strong storytelling and editing skills. I am also a musician experienced in sound recording and sound design. I am looking for projects with an interesting background that focus on creative storytelling. I would also be thrilled to work with musicians to help them add a visual dimension to their songs.

 

Utilizando la animación 2D, realizo desde las ideas iniciales y el story-board, pasando por el diseño y la animación hasta completarlas con la edición y el sonido con el fin de contar una historia. Mis trabajos hasta ahora han sido en colaboración con científicos  haciendo videos divulgativos, con asociaciones de protección del medioambiente realizando historias para la educación,  y con músicos para crear un mundo visual y una historia paralela que acompaña sus canciones en los videoclips.
