Personal Interests

My parents were very likely, the people that most influenced my personality and the person I am today. My
dad introduced me to the first films that grew to be my favorites like "One Flew Over the Cuckoo´s Nest" or
"Lord Of The Rings". As I watched them over and over again, I realized how much being part of this
alternative reality meant to me and it was right about this time that I seriously thought about being a part
of it.

I learned so much during this last year, from film analysis and debating, I gained new perspectives on
how to approach film, both as a viewer and as a filmmaker.

My favorite directors, mostly for their takes of realities are Scorsese, David Fincher, Christopher Nolan and Guillermo Del Toro. I love their films and they don´t have to be the most critical acclaimed or praised, just by reflecting who I am and who I aspire to be.
