Carlos Saiz

Murcia, 1991. He grew up between his father's comics and 3D Movie Maker. At the age of fifteen, he began to film his first pieces, in which he was already interested in portraying his closest universe. After residing in London for a season in which he experimented with different facets of cinematographic art, he returned to his city to shoot the music video Islamabad for Los Planetas, a self-portrait with which he obtained a scholarship to study the master's degree in Film Directing and Filmmaking at the EFTI school. During the master's degree he continues to develop his style and directs Fandango and Stoickhov, two pieces focused on manners that have been exhibited in different rooms such as Matadero or La Filmoteca Regional de Murcia. La hoguera can be considered his first work and it is his final master's project.
