PEDRO TEJADA

Pedro Tejada’s trajectory reflects perfectly the director he is today. The combination of art, sports, technology and stunning visuals is an eccentric combination that was nurtured from his early love of sports, which made him a very young professional athlete, his beginning as a DIT of renowned DOPs such as Matthew Libatique, Fred Eles and Ricardo DellaRosa and later migration to post-production, when he supervised multi-disciplinary projects for clients such as Facebook, Google and Mastercard, mixing VR, CGI and composition. His short-film Try-all is a sophisticated combination of all of his passions.
