Nowadays you can say with little chance of being wrong that 100% of audiovisual productions, both in film and on streaming platforms, require the use of VFX or digital postproduction to a greater or lesser extent. Some productions only require relatively simple 2D compositing, clean ups, or minor touch ups. But other films or series have more complex VFX needs, such as destruction, fluid simulation, 3D monsters, digital animals, or the creation of 90,000 digital people to fill the stands of a football stadium. These types of challenges are the ones that Onirikal is facing more and more frequently, and this is what motivates the studio's creative team, while at the same time helping to define the company's differentiating character within the Spanish panorama.

The presentation will show some examples of this type of 3D assets created in the studio, as well as explaining some technical issues, about software, approach, and creative details about the way (sometimes peculiar, unexpected and original) to deal with this type of work within Onirikal Studio.

Founder and VFX Supervisor of Onirikal Studio, with more than 25 years of experience in the world of 3D animation and visual effects, he has participated in more than 100 film and TV titles. Among these titles are major film productions such as Christopher Nolan's interstellar, winner of the OSCAR Award for Best Visual Effects, Neil Marshall's Hellboy (Game of Thrones, Westworld, .... ) or Hercules by Brett Ratner (Xmen, Red Dragon, ...), and he has worked as VFX supervisor for important clients around the world such as Netflix, Disney +, Amazon Prime Video, Warner Bros, Apple TV, BBC, Sony Music, Fox International, Free, ...

In his other facet, as a screenwriter and film director, his nominations for the Goya and Gaudí Awards stand out, as well as his third science fiction short film, Caronte, with which he won 65 international awards and more than 200 official selections at festivals around the world.  In 2022 he writes and directs The Antares Paradox, which becomes his first feature film, with its world premiere in the USA (Fantastic Fest, Austin) and European premiere at the Sitges International Film Festival.
