I have friends who have taught me a lot in this audiovisual world, even my relationship with Alejandro González Iñarritu began in advertising and culminated in a highly relevant film project. That’s why I like to combine both worlds, one is fast, the other is permanent and takes a long time to achieve. There are very creative people in the field and there are projects like this that really have a lot of productive value.
It’s like a parallel channel that has always worked very well in my career, it’s like a double life. As creatives, we always enjoy when a great idea like this fight comes along, where you can see the work of imagination that those involved take. Client and agency are committed to originality and take risks and I think that when people see it they value it very much”.
