Aaaand we’re back to posting here!

So fatherhood cuts your time in less than half, who knew! I have a brand new life filled with endless love, endless nights (when she wakes up 6 times), and the endless pursuit of getting shit done when it comes to my work. I made the huge decision to work from home until my little...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 9

Before you start reading please bear with me, we just had a beautiful baby girl and I haven’t slept much, so if I stop making sense or repeat myself, you’ll know what’s up. It has been the greatest time ever, I now have a family of my own. Crazy. We are currently locking in shooting...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 8

I’m the type of person that cannot live without music, I have a soundtrack for all the different eras of my life, I have a song assigned to most people in my life, the undeniable power of music has a strong hold on me. You can catch me listening to The Traveling Wilburys in the...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 7

Making it funny. That’s what this is all about. This is the story of a woman that wants to make you laugh, wants to make you have a good time and in her words, “make you forget about your shitty life for a while”. A lot is said about the New York audience during the documentary,...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 6

“Be like water my friend” has to be one of my favorite quotes, it comes from the great late Bruce Lee, it refers to our ever-changing world and how we must try to adapt quickly and try to have a good time while doing so. This quote lives with me every single day. I’m still struggling...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 5

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! Ok, I got that out of the way. Sorry. I’m in between of being very excited about the film, tired from all the hours I put into my work and thinking about being a new father in April, all the same time. The most recent cut of the doc looks great, it’ so easy now...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 4

“Fresh eyes” is the name of this past week. I stepped away from the editing station to shake off any tunnel vision I might have had during this process (after some great advice from my brother in arms, Princeton), it’s served me good because I immediately was able to point out spots in the doc...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 3

At this point, my brain is a bit fried from all the editing. I came at it head-on, fearless because I knew the story in and out and I knew what was needed to be shown. Or did I? Just like everything else in life I’ve changed in the past 2 years, I see and...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol.1

After 2 years of directing my first feature documentary called “Funny Pains,” we have arrived at the stage in which all the hard work comes together, we sit down and start making some tough decisions about how the story will be told, what makes sense, what does not and the hardest part for me, what...

Why I’ve put fiction on hold

I’ve stopped writing fiction (script for movies) since my last one called “Cachorro” (which translates to “Puppy”) went on the market a while ago, this coincided with me moving back to the US with my dear wife and having a Spanish written script in my hands. Selling a script nowadays takes a while, especially in a...
