He has written and directed the short films The Attack of the Robots from Nebula-5, Protoparticles, Mystery, The Disco Shines and The Golden Le- gend (co-directed with Ion de Sosa), and the medium-length film Uranes. The Sacred Spirit is his first feature film.

His 200 plus prizes include two honourable mentions at undance, a special mention at San Sebastian, the Méliès d’Or for best Eu- ropean fantastic short film and a nomi- nation for the European Film Awards.
The Attack of the Robots from Nebu- la-5 was named third-best short film of the decade in the survey of Spani- sh filmmakers at the Alcine festival. All of his films have been included in the top Spanish short film list produ- ced annually by Caimán Cuadernos de Cine magazine.

Since 2015, he has taught the Anti-fil- mmaking Course as part of the Docu- mentary Cinema Diploma at ECAM (the Madrid Cinema and Audiovisual School), covering the fusion between fiction and reality, narrative limits and the radical use of staging, sound, mu- sic and editing.
