About Eduardo

I have worked mostly in the film / TV / video business in all sorts of jobs, including a big Hollywood film. I have written, directed and produced a few short films shown around the world in 30 festivals and also on TV, such as Cinemax and the U.S. show "Sprockets and Splices". I have written 16 feature-length screenplays and a couple of TV pilot scripts.

My short film "Dhampira" has been included in an all-time top-ten list (vampire movies from Mexico) and has reached cult-status at least in Mexico and some dark corners of the Internet. The book "Pop Culture Latin America!" (ABC-CLIO) mentions "Dhampira" as one of the most innovative horror films from Mexico in recent decades.

A previsualization animatic storyboard for one of my feature length scripts was a semifinalist at Amazon Studios (both for "test movie" and dialogue track). The project is featured on the Moviestorm website as a professional case study of filmmakers using their Machinima software as a development tool.

I have won 11 awards at International festivals & competitions (4 for short films and 7 for unproduced scripts). In the last few years, my scripts have reached the second round or better of competitions and festivals over 50 times .

While I still move my latest scripts in the contest circuit, I'm producing audio drama projects and hope for my feature-film directorial debut to become a reality soon.

Unique traits: Vast research of history, geography, socio-cultural traits and mythology concerning the specific time periods and locations where my stories unfold.
