Impact / Gesture: Publicity, Cinema or Videotapes
Although always regarded with suspicion by the more elitist spheres of culture, advertising has been the field of work of many filmmakers who have not necessarily moved on to more cinematographic formats. This round table aims precisely to compare both worlds and discuss the creative differences faced by each. Differences that go beyond aesthetics and are reflected in the philosophy of work, the type of production, etc.
With the participation of:
Cris Trenas and Santos Bacana (Little Spain)
Nacho Villar and Luis Rojo (BRBR Films)
BRBR is a film collective based in Madrid and London which originated in 2014 in the music video and urban music scene, experimenting with new formats and pioneering a new cinematographic and artistic vision. Their work has been recognized in festivals such as Cíclope, Young Director Awards, CdeC, El Ojo de Iberoamérica, El Sol, Shots or Berlin Commercial. Their output combines deliberate aesthetics with a solid and consistent narrative. BRBR's vision introduces a dreamlike and fabulous tinge to an imaginary landscape which is realistic and raw. BRBR's first feature film, La mala familia, is due to be released in 2022.
Little Spain en una productora audiovisual, una boutique creativa, un agente cultural, un grupo de amigos con la ambición de hacer las cosas de forma diferente y construir discursos alternativos en torno a los temas de siempre. Hace poco nos dijeron que éramos un ecosistema creativo y nos gustó la definición. Después de arrancar con el proyecto de El Madrileño de C.Tanagana bajo la dirección creativa de Santos Bacana, nuestro objetivo es hacer ficciones de todo tipo y seguir interpretando realidades.
