Cuando Raúl tenia 7 años jugaba a que su closet era un portal tridimensional, el cual podía transportarlo a cualquier lugar del planeta. Un par de décadas después y la escotilla sigue abierta, arrastrándolo a vivir un sinnúmero de aventuras.
Nómad-A, es la historia de un chico ecuatoriano que un día resolvió dejar su territorio para perseguir su sueños. En el camino, Raúl se encuentra con un sin número de personas quienes marcaran su vida. Ofreciéndole no solo aporte moral, un sofá para la noche, o una ración de comida, sino también inspiración y valor, en el transcurso de su migración.
Nómad-A es un documental que no solo te traslada a los lugares mas remotos del planeta, pero te hará conocer también los alternativos estilos de vida, de los individuos más interesantes de nuestra época.
El Nómad-A, Raúl Cabrera y su camarógrafo Gareth Sheehan visitaran a cada uno de los Nómad-As en este proyecto y juntos vivirán inigualables odiseas, las cuales te inspiraran a seguir el camino de tus sueños.
Proyecto Nómad-A ha sido posible gracias al sentido de comunidad que cada uno de sus integrantes aporta al documental. Todo el elenco de Nómad-A, desde el camarógrafo, diseñador gráfico, webmaster, encargado de logística y director ejecutivo son personas que Raúl ha encontrado en sus odiseas, haciendo esta producción 100% independiente.
When Raul was 7 years old he pretended that his closet was a three dimensional doorway, which could transport him to anyplace he wished. Two decades later, the portal is still open, taking him on incredible adventures to live in some of the remotest places on earth.
Nómad-A is the story of an Ecuadorian boy, who made the decision to abandon his home country to chase his dreams, Peter-pan-style. Whilst on the road, he has met thousands of individuals, many of whom made deep impressions shaping his journey and who he was to become. Strangers soon became friends, not only offering a couch and a home cooked meal, but also providing moral support and inspiration, giving Raul the fuel and encouragement to continue his non- stop migration.
Nómad-A, gathers stories and odysseys of courageous people from every corner of the world; unique individuals who chose to live a alternative lifestyle in order to follow their dreams. Raúl Cabrera and his cameraman Gareth Sheehan will be visiting them in their new and ever-changing territories.
These Nómad-As and comrades of Raúl will take you on a journey into their lives. Sharing their amazing and compelling stories with you. These anecdotes will ignite you with a feeling of freedom and passion. Knowing that is never too late to diverge from your current path and take a most fulfilling route.
Project Nómad-A has only been possible by the spirit of community. Everyone involved in production, from the cinematographer , to the project manager, graphic designer, webmaster and logistic manager, are people that Raul Cabrera has met over the course of his expeditions, making Nómad-A a real grassroots production.
@StanleyPiano, the world's first interactive player piano, makes his worldwide debut at Seattle's Capitol Hill Block Party. Stanley is a precocious instrument who takes song requests via Twitter. Stanley can play a lot of songs, but he loves indie music. He even went out of his way to learn a song for each of the bands playing at the Block Party. Stanley bares all as his moving parts (gears, bellows, hammers, valves) visibly work as the keys press themselves.
This is a short film that I was a part of for Adam Young's solo Art Show at Common House Gallery entitled: Songs of the Early Riser. Adam had a concept for a video installation. I took his concept and put it into a video. We originally had 4 different edits looping at the show in his installation, but this edit is a compilation of my favorite clips from the three day shoot. This has been the most fun project I have been a part of to date. Sitting around with your friends killing a couple of six packs of beer trying to think of different means to open your next drink is pretty fun. I encourage you to try it.
Adam's art is amazing. If you have an opportunity to pick up one of his pieces, I suggest you add an original to your collection. He is one of the best dudes ever...

This is my newest project from my home country Switzerland about the most famous Swiss mountain the Matterhorn. I was 3 times in Zermatt between August and October 2012 to make this film. I stayed some nights outside under a starry sky and a lot of falling stars. During October on 2’700m/8'858f over sea it gets really cold. But it was worth to do it.
Please share it, if you like it!
Thanks Roberto Cacciapaglia and Glance Studio for the permission to use this great piece of music.
