Cinema Club shortfilm Competition –
The Cinema Club is a short film competition created by The Collective & In The Mirror Films, where different directors get the opportunity to screen their short films, and an audience then vote for their favorite. The winning short films of these monthly competitions compete at The Finals, where a jury selects the best short film. The grand prize is the full production of the director’s next short film with equipment provided by The Collective.
This year’s finals took place on the 6th of September 2019, where I had both the pleasure and honor of being invited as part of the jury. Together with Musanna Ahmed, Sally Fenaux, Moises Tuñón, Eloïse Valli and Carles Mestres we selected Tahrib as the best short film.
Conversas is a series of weekly debate events where people come together to converse and discuss different subjects presented by three different invited speakers, who present a theme.
On July 3rd I participated as a speaker, where I presented the theme of my next documentary film: Virtuous Pedophiles. The full debate was filmed with the intention of possibly including it in the documentary film.
NACÍ ASÍ POSTER DONE
My latest short film Nací Así (Born This Way) is finally done and so is the poster.
NACÍ ASÍ SHOOTING
The 3 day intense shooting of my short film Nací Así is over. I am so excited to see the end result. The shoot was not without its challenges, but all in all it went really well and we finished right on schedule. We had an amazing crew and cast who all contributed to making the shoot smooth, fun and professional. Being on set is probably my favorite part of the entire process of filmmaking. It feels magical. You see how all your ideas and thoughts you had in your head come alive in front of you. It’s usually very intense and mixed with all sorts of feelings like stress, fear, joy, and if all goes well: relief.

On Friday the 1st of June 2018 at 8 pm in t.i.c.t.a.c. there will be a presentation of the short film made during the first workshop “Introduction to the new Cine X of adult cinema” taught by Sally Fenaux Barleycorn. I helped out with the camera at the shoot, as many of the students had little or no experience with a camera. They worked in groups of two or three people and would each prepare a couple of shots they would storyboards and eventually film. This type of new pornografic cinemas has an important philosophy that focuses on respecting and giving dignity to everyone involved in the making of it.
SCREENING of Moussa and the Education of Boxing at the Cinema Club
My short documentary film Moussa and the Education of Boxing screened at the Cinema Club event held at The Collective. I was a great evening with many interesting films.
THE SPANISH CONNECTION – SHOOTING
This was one of those really crazy and fun projects, that started out with a Danish actor coming to Barcelona with an idea and his small handycam, but then developed into a full blown professional film shot on the RED Weapon with the most amazing crew and cast. I was the assistant director to actor/director Eigil Hedegaard. We are all extremely excited to see the finished film.
