I chose filmmaking as a living because I am passionate about art and human expressions, and it gives me the opportunity to use every aspect of it to convey emotions. I think we experience through our senses as human beings, and images and sounds are powerful and have the immediacy that other paths do not have.
Besides that, I used to work as a teacher and a musician before, which gave me the opportunity to see first hand how literature and music moves and inspírate people. So, when you mix all this factors thanks to filmmaking, and the story is unique, you experience a unique process and you are able to reach the audience in an incomparable way.
Because people make you learn and understand the world and the human being a little better. There is always a story to tell about anyone.
I grew up reading and watching stories in novels, tales, films... Now, when I have to work with a story, is like returning to childhood.
Art as a human trait
Filmaking is the mix of the arts I have loved all my life: writing, music, photography... Working these aspects with a team is a blessing.
