  • Description


    My project organization is based on other projects I have been part of, or visited around the world through the years.

    We are building a network of happy people that believe in cooperation and international friendship. For me this encounters are not about a cold exchange of resources but about a life changing experience: Meeting new friends, building and creating something together. If this is your state of mind, come and join us!

    Short time objectives:
    Maintain and beautify the studio.

    Middle term objectives:
    - Go as eco as we can afford.
    - Find cooperation and resources to start audiovisual proyects.

    Long time objectives:

    "A kind network, dedicated to bring out alternative projects with the aim of creating wisdom and awareness of the fragile and yet unstoppable human condition. It includes audiovisual outreach and when there is time, a Youtube channel...

    Come and join us!

    At this moment we need all kinds of energies.

    Then, in the middle run, you can come and contribute to our Audiovisual projects with your art: We need musicians,, actors, writers...

    And, At the same time: you are also invited to one of the most beautiful and unknown areas of the North of Spain: Cantabria. This is an unknown region to the world: We offer, mountains and the best beaches, all of it within a ten minute bike ride!

    By the way, we are right in the middle of the pilgrimage road to Santiago, so if you feel the call...

    Cheers, and best of travels to all seekers. Be brave.
