I was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico in April 14,1980. I have produced content for journalistic and broadcasting use in a wide range of media including video, photography, motion graphics, graphic design and social media. My experience includes working as Master Control, Technical Director and Robotic Camera Operator for Adelphia Cable Vision Channel 10, Assistant Director (1st AD) for XCL-TV, Photojournalist for the Senate and The House of Representatives of Puerto Rico and Imaging Operations Coordinator for Disney’s Photo Imaging at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I am a single dad of two beautiful daughters.
At the moment I just finished my second short film, my first in the Avant-Garde genre and I am very excited about it. Is inspired by an introspective psychological practice and I use a mix of mediums and techniques such as digital art compositions, accidental painting, abstract painting, stop motion animation and slow-motion all filmed with a mobile device to produce a final video art piece. I can't wait to submitted into film festivals, I'm very confident it will do as good or better than I s o l a t i o n's festival run, 2021 is going to be a great year.
I s o l a t i o n is a product of its own name. Is the result of a spark of inspiration while listening to the music that is now the soundtrack of the short film. Totally improvised and shot in one day. Isolation is a drama that takes you on an intimate look and experience Carlos's lonely isolation for one day (day 36 of quarantine).Carlos is a Puerto Rican living by himself in the State of Florida, furloughed because of Covid-19.
There's this shot in the scene called "the photo" that is my favorite and also it was very challenging since I was shooting it through the reflection of the glass in the photo frame inside the bedroom and acting it outside the room through the balcony window. Focusing, framing and exposing for it to then go outside and act what was going to be seen through the glass reflection and then come back in and change the focus and exposition to reveal the photo in the frame in one take was my favorite challenge of the project.
