    About Me

    At the age of 36 I was making documentaries when a Media School asked me if I could give a workshop and a new adventure started with the discovery of teaching. To my surprise (I always thought I wasn't good enough to teach) the students made more short videos and reports than ever in the previous years of the school. It seemed that I was good for them and to share my knowledge and skills was a great experience.
    Nowadays, I give workshops and short courses or lessons, and I am developing games for education too. I am a passionate person who loves whatever I do because I like to know more, to have challenges and to work with others.

    Experience / Qualifications

    Documentary Filmmaker. Game Designer.
    Lecturer at Universitat de Vic - Universitat Central de Catalunya. 2005-2016. Started teaching at Audiovisual Communication Studies and ended with a full-time job, completely devoted to my students and dedicated to creating new study projects and to the needed research. Meanwhile, I directed 18! Final Thesis Projects.
    Guest Lecturer at International Institutions and much more.
    Being able to express your ideas and projects in public is a fundamental ability for your professional career. In the audiovisual field where I have been working for fifteen years, giving a good convincing pitch was the only way to find investors for my documentary projects. Later, working as a teacher at a Faculty of Media and Communication, I had the opportunity to help students prepare their presentations, and very especially their Final Thesis Presentations. All and all, I have my personal toolbox for preparing anyone (welcome shyness!) to feel confident and at ease in order to communicate with the verbal language, the body language, and the visual language.
    This ia a five sessions course of two hours per session in which you will learn to prepare 5 healthy and tasty recipes that will give you the basis for preparing different meals. You will learn how to: - prepare fresh pasta with light ingredients and with a variety of sauces, - cook spiced rise and kinoa, - prepare tasty vegetables with different cooking methods, - prepare fresh meat and fish in a few minutes using the grill and the oven, At the same time you learn the cooking proceedings you will learn where to buy the freshiest ingredients and how to chose them.
    With this course you will learn Spanish in a playful easy way: we will look at the words and the grammar as part of a game that we play. So every time we play, we are better at it! Learning and practicing how to speak a language can be challenging. My method is based in playful learning while creating scenarios in which you will discover the words we need to use and the right way to make sentences in that situation. I prepare the scenarios based on the list of interests you have. Once we can have a small conversation in that scenario, we will repeat it at the next meeting and it will be included in our "refresh quarter" which is a 15 minute revision on all the words and ways of saying that you keep learning. My focus is on connecting the language to your needs and wishes, to make sure the learning is well grounded.
    Catalan is a romance language used by more than 11 million in Europe. Nowadays Catalan is fashionable because of its social movement in Catalunya, the fame of Barcelona and the multiple touristic attractions. In this course, the learning process is practical and combined with an immersion on the Catalan culture. My method is based in creating visual scenarios in which you will discover the words to use and the right way to make sentences in that situation. Once we can have a small conversation in that scenario, we will repeat it at the next meeting and it will be included in our "refresh quarter" which is a 15 minute revision on all the words and ways of saying that you keep learning. My focus is on connecting the language to your needs and wishes to make sure the learning is well grounded.
    This is an eight hours course in which you will learn just enought to have your first experiences with Spanish speakers. You will learn with a visual method: - how to intrduce yourself - how to do basic shoppings - how to order food and drinks - how to ask for directions - how to express your opinion on basic daily stuff. For every hour of class you put another hour and a half of study and you will be ready for your first adventures in Spanish.

    Professional filmmaker and artist teaches film editing. Avid, Adobe Premiere Pro etc. as a course or individually adapted.
    I teach Premiere Pro and Avid Media Composer, from beginner to advanced. In the beginner and intermediate courses, all the important basics are covered and practiced using practical applications. The advanced courses go into finer details, such as advanced editing techniques or shed light on specific processes such as proxy workflows or colour management. Structure: The technical lessons are structured in 1 hour modules, using practical examples and allow time for experimentation and questions. I also teach editing theory and creative strategies across many different genres and styles. These are less structured and are tailored to specific needs. Open Sessions are also possible, where you may bring along a personal project in Premiere or Avid and I will offer you technical assistance, feedback or tips.

    Professional musician (M.Comp.) From the Royal College of Music in London gives composition lessons (also composition for film and media)
    I offer lessons in composition, especially film music, orchestration and music theory for students (including prospective students), schoolchildren and young people, advanced and experienced and simply interested people in Germany. I completed my Master of Composition at the Royal College of Music last summer and have now moved back to Leipzig. Since the lessons were held in English, English- or Dutch-speaking students are also welcome. Film music is an increasingly popular specialty of composition and is therefore on an up and coming path and not just popular among the younger generation. Classical composition is also an important part, which is why I offer a range from Vaughan Williams to Wagner and John Williams to Hans Zimmer (orchestral music - computer music).

    Filmmaking for beginners, from idea to final edit.
    Stories have always been the most efficient ways to share an idea, a message or a concept. In today's world where videos are omnipresent, stories are encapsulated in them. Therefore, being able to create film on your own is a must for a good storytelling. I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and I have been working with several Fashion brands and others to create films that convey my client's story to their audience with any budget since 2009. Though it's becoming more accessible, Filmmaking is an expensive activity. There are a lot of gear and software you need to buy or rent. Plus, you can't do everything on your own. However, with a proper understanding of filmmaking perspective, preparation, vision and style, you can belong to the community who loves to create movies for any budget and even respond properly to any client in the future if ever you chose that path. There are millions of tutorials on youtube regarding the technicalities of filmmaking but in this class you will learn about the logic and the core principles of moving pictures, no matter the end goal nor the gear, their methodology and the steps to follow from pre-production to post-production.
