BIOGRAPHY OF THE DIRECTOR

Julio was born in 1994 in Santiago, Chile. He has lived most of his life in Santiago and Rancagua. After turning 18 he quits his plan of studying medicine and engages in combining his love for composing music, drawing comics, and telling stories he shared through the internet since he was a kid, to make movies with videogames and videotapes with friends. Inspired by Fincher, Ridley Scott, and Nicholas W. Refn, he has searched for a bizarre and risky but aesthetically pleasant style, using montage as his main tool.
