We were recently asked a few questions. We felt a bit like a rockstar. Here are our answers.
RED CILANTRO MEDIA interview
Q: What type of work do you love to do?
P: I LOVE THE CHALLENGE OF TURNING A CORPORATE VIDEO (NORMALLY BORING SUBJECTS) INTO SOMETHING EDGY, CREATIVE AND DIFFERENT. I HAVE MADE CHEMICAL PRODUCTS LOOK SEXY. IN TWO LANGUAGES.
MY FAVORITE PIECES THOUGH, ARE THE ONES THAT CARRY EMOTIONAL MESSAGES (EITHER FOR NON-PROFITS, FUND RAISERS OR EVEN JUST MESSAGES OF CORPORATE MOTIVATION). I LIKE TAKING A PIECE FROM CONCEPT TO EDIT, SO I HAVE CONTROL OVER THE EMOTIONAL PUNCH THAT THE VISUALS CREATE.
Q: What type of work do you enjoy doing because you get paid?
P: ANY JOB THAT PAYS IS GOOD. HOWEVER, THE BEST ARE WHERE I CAN WORK WITH MY PEOPLE…THE PEOPLE WHO, LIKE ME, LOVE WHAT THEY DO. MY FAVORITE DP DOESN’T CARE ABOUT THE BUDGET. HE WILL STILL GET THE BEST CAMERA, RUN AND BUY A DRONE (EVEN IF ITS NOT IN THE $ LINE) BC IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE TO HIM TO SHOOT THE ARIZONA DESERT ANY OTHER WAY. WHEN I WORK WITH PEOPLE THAT LEAVE THE SIGNED BUDGETS AT HOME AND TAKE THEIR PASSION IN THEIR GEAR TRUCK, LIFE IS GOOD.
Q: What is the thing people love about working with you?
P: I CUSS IN SPANISH. I'M CUTE. I KNOW MY STUFF.
Q: What would be the thing people say is the hardest part of working with you? (an intern asked me that last week during an interview, which I thought was an amazingly mature question for a 19 year old..)
P: I AM AN EDITOR BEFORE A PRODUCER. OR RATHER, THAT IS WHERE I STARTED. SO I SHOOT FOR THE EDIT. I KNOW WHAT I WANT. AND IF AN EDITOR WILL TRY TO TELL ME HE OR SHE CANNOT DO THAT, I WILL ASK THEM TO MOVE AND LET ME DRIVE. I KNOW WHAT THE RESULT NEEDS TO BE. I THINK THAT MAKES ME A ROYAL PAIN IN THE BUTT TO WORK FOR. SOMETIMES.
