Summary

I am an experienced filmmaker, having made over 100 videos for clients as varied as travel websites, small businesses and Travel Channel and Pottery Barn. I also have an artistic side, and have directed numerous short films and documentaries (for Current TV and Independent Film Channel) and edited a feature length film. I am offering my services as a free-lance filmmaker and also looking to participate in TV and film projects as a script writer, camera person, producer or editor. I live in Buenos Aires but have a strong sense of what sells in the US market and am committed to maintaining high professional standards. My videos can make your website standout by driving traffic to your site and creating trust in potential customers.
