In charge of directing 14 animated videos from 14 celebrated Mexican artists from the XXth century. Amongst them: Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Guillermina Bravo, Salvador Toscano, Juan Rulfo and more. This was televised in "Canal 22" for kids all around Mexico so they can be aware of some of the nation's greatest creative minds.

Goldberg Variations Live Visuals
For this project, visuals were made to create a synesthetic experience to accompany Bach's Goldberg Variations - a homage to Glenn Gould. The mindset was to elaborate a fitting ambience to the music where the animation won't overpower the music and vice-versa.
