Blai Graell

When I began working as a Director’s Assistant in a production company in Barcelona, I immediately understood how complex advertising language is. A language governed by the short time we are given to present an idea and where every small detail counts.

I spent the following years assimilating this language and alternating between directing music videos and my job as a Director’s Assistant working on large, high-profile projects. During this time in which I soaked up all kinds of references I became aware that a few of them had something which made them stand out over the rest. It didn’t have so much to do with the means by which something was done but more to do with how all the aspects that made them up complemented each other to create a piece with its own personality. And that is precisely the thing that stimulates me as a director: to condense and deconstruct the creative idea so as to reveal its essence and use this as a guide to create pieces that generate new sensations.

My work has received recognition and has won awards among which a “EuroBest” and a “New York International Advertising Awards” stand out.

Toño Mayor

From Madrid. I work with creatives, brands and very talented people to create stories worth telling.

Miguel Murciano

I was born in Teruel (the greatest truffle and ham manufacturer in the world), in 1986. I could have stayed there, cooking truffled eggs for a living but all the sudden a 56Kbps router and a passion instigated by Bud Spencer and Terence Hill, caused me to be completely fascinated with the Cinemascope 2,39 format along with the absurd part of life.

After passing through the ECAM (Madrid Cinema School), living in Italy, learning to cook amazing Carbonara and working for two years in postproduction and camera work, I went back to Madrid in 2013. There I started to direct, placing special focus on what seem to be my strong suits, comedy and food.

Now I go back and forth between living in Madrid and Mexico City, investing myself in by greatest passion. If we may one day cross paths, I swear I will cook the best Carbonara of your life, given that it is much cheaper than truffle.

Sarciat

I studied a lot. The place where I did it, too many for a short bio.
I like working with actors and comedy is one of my passions.

Uri Segarra

I was born in Barcelona.

When I had 22 years old started filming commercials. 
I don´t sure that had been a good idea…

I am the crazy who pursues excellence, the one who lives by a good frame, the one who feels privileged to be able to do what he likes.

The one who locates until finding the exact place. And he likes to surround himself with people better than himself and learn from them.

I have worked in different international markets such as: Italian, French , Portugal, Rumanian, Greek, Africian, Mexican, Asiatic, Rusian.

Stein

Biped. Once upon a time I won a prize. More like a cat than a dog, I make up words and I love punk. I wanted to be like Iggy Pop, shirtless, so I use shootings as an excuse to seduce my public. Adds, music clips and mixed movies, film or digital. I dance but I have no rythm.

Fran Torres

Fran’s style is characterized by his strong sense of storytelling, which relies on his skill for directing actors. His theater background has had a positive impact on Fran’s natural talent for communicating emotions and humor poignantly. He has a keen sensibility to convey strong feelings across his commercials, whether he’s portraying touching or humorous stories. Along with his natural sense of storytelling, he has the capacity to build ideas around different genres with a strong visual attitude.

Dani Torres

At the age of 10 I stepped onto a sit for the first time and from that moment I knew I wanted to direct. In 2004, after working in different trades of the profession, production, assistant director etc, I jump to the direction, carrying out campaigns for big brands and agencies.

I like narrative pieces, working with actors and storytelling, but without neglecting the most aesthetic part of my pieces. My desire to shoot makes me take care of the smallest details, dedicating time and love, no matter how small or large the campaign is.

In 2010 I was nominated for Best Young Director at the Cannes festival (CFPC-Commercial Film Producers of Europe) and Shorts) for advertising by Viral de Rodar y Rodar.

I have directed four short films, El Paso (nominated for the Gaudí awards), Contra el Cristal, Hasta Mañana and When You Started to Stop Loving Me.

I’m currently working on two feature film script projects, Hring and La Llave.

Fragmento Universo

She studied Fine Arts at the Complutense University of Madrid and completed her knowledge with a master’s degree in strategy and visual communication.

Her work orbits between the audiovisual field, life action, advertising and photography. It unites the aesthetics of a world that craves aesthetic images with its constant need to escape from the underworld. Generating content, conceptual and metaphorical, with projects for brands such as Beefeater, Ikea, Seat or Jean Paul Gaultier, she is obsessed with product and surreal universes.
