Carmen, AKA La Jefa (The Boss), represents the Music in the company. She hits the keys of her laptop as if they were the keys of a grand piano. Budgeting and scheduling (very strictly) is for her like reading and bringing a pentagram to life. Under her keyboard, excel and call sheets turn into symphonies. They do! Yes, besides having a degree in Film and Communications, La Jefa has, in fact, a degree in Piano and Composing.
She started her career as a producer in the field of news producing in Spain, and NYC opened the door for her to fiction projects. She has produced feature and short films, TV commercials, reality TV and travel shows, music videos and theater. Her vast interest in arts has got her involve in lots of successful projects that have been shown in festivals and events on both sides of the Atlantic.
You need La Jefa in your life. What are you waiting for?
Do you remember the scene from Return of the Jedi where Luke fights against Darth Vader with lightsabers? Particularly the shot with both of the characters passing by the stairs with the massive window in the background? Well, Dani saw this when he was 11 and fell in love with cinema… and here he is.
He shot his first short film when he was 14 and has not been able to stop since then, becoming the kind of filmmaker who writes, shoots, and edits his own stories. Yes, he is an addict way beyond workaholism. He has made more than a dozen short films, such as the award winning shorts 12-26 – 12:31 and Second Round, both of which were selected at the Short Films Corner in Cannes Film Festival, respectively 2012 and 2013. His feature film Encontrados en NYC is having a great festival run.
