Bienvenido Mr. Heston – Documental

 

España sirvió como decorado a grandes producciones cinematográficas. ¿Sigue siendo así hoy en día?

Largometraje documental dirigido por Pedro Estepa Menéndez y Elena Ferrándiz Sanz.
En él se analiza el impacto que supuso el rodaje de “El Cid” en Torrelobatón, Valladolid. También se muestran las costumbres del pueblo a través de sus habitantes en la actualidad.

A lo largo del documental, parte del equipo técnico de esta producción de Hollywood recuerda los días de rodaje. Entre otros, el decorador Gil Parrondo, Fraser Heston -hijo de Charlton Heston- y Andrea Bronston -hija del productor Samuel Bronston-.

PUSH UP – Best Cinematogpraphy Award

The famous International Film Festival “Houston Comedy Film Festival” was held last January in Texas.

We received the great news that David Galán Galindo´s last project “Push Up” had been selected among others. A project where I have had the pleasure of performing as cinematographer, working together with renowned artists such as Julián López, Mariam Hernández or Daniel Pérez Prada.

– Best Short Film: Push up
– Best Actress: Mariam Hernández
– Best Actor: Julián López 
– Best Cinematography: César Maderal

Nominations

Although we could´t attend the Awards Ceremony, On January 31 just being among the final nominates, with such number of projects involved, is already a great recognition of the work done.

Today morning, I got the news. I have been awarded “Best Director of Photography”, amongst 6 nominees within this category. I´d like to appreciate their work, since there are just few festivals rewarding such works.

Also my congratulations to my colleagues who were finally not rewarded and the rest of “Push Up” team, whose support made it all possible. Thank you, I hope to get together again in some future.

Here, I would like to encourage spanish festivals to introduce more awards in technical categories. It is many of us making films possible.
