Daniel Urrutia Carlos
Based in Barcelona, Spain
A graduate student from CECC in Barcelona and IED in Milan, I am a professional Cinematographer, Photographer & UAV operator with over 13 years of international experience producing, scripting, filming and directing a wide range of audio-visual multimedia projects. The assignments I carried out range from short and long films, documentaries, events, sports and music videos, to high-end advocacy and advertising productions for both the private and non-profit sector, in 16 countries over four continents.
As Audio Visual Media Specialist I have directed and filmed international productions for diverse and very broad target groups, ranging from TV programs and advertisements for major corporations featured for 300+M audiences, fiction films featured in cinemas, documentaries of and for ethnic minority’s in Myanmar and promotional videos for UN agencies and NGO’s with a fundraising scope. Working as Producer, Director and Director of Photography, I am experienced in managing production teams of up to 20 professionals in a multicultural and multilingual environment. I have successfully planned and organized multimedia projects from conception to its broadcast, in a successful and timely fashion, all over the world.
As Photographer I have been able to deliver a consistent approach to a broad range of situations, be it in a hotel in Myanmar, photographing their installations, to the field, photographing a tribe deep in the Burundi mountains. In the 19+ years I have devoted to this passion, I have developed a versatile skill set that allows me to capture the soul of the moment and portray faithfully the content previously agreed with the project manager.
As an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Licensed Pilot I am used to liaising with authorities and engaging with clients about safety and the breakthrough approach towards UAV production. I currently own a 4th generation 4K portable drone, with over 100 flight hours in Denmark, Spain, Italy, Oman, Kazakhstan and Myanmar, I have gathered the expertise for a successful and breathtaking documentation of subjects from the sky.
