Director, Writer, Producer, Editor, DOP...
Joseba Alfaro has directed dozens of short films, and he firmly believes in the french term «film d’auteur«. This does not mean he just makes «small» projects, and he embarks on genres such as science fiction or action, shooting outdoors and with all the possible practical special effects. For him it is very important to write the script and be part of the processes involved in audiovisual narrative. Also, he devours commercial and studio movies, but until he gets to undertake such projects, he feels very comfortable producing, writing and directing his own ones.
At the same time, Joseba also carries out post-production work. Since he began his studies focusing on film editing, he edits all his projects and even assumes the processing of some VFX.
Currently, Joseba wants to focus his efforts on making Balas Ciegas, a feature film he has been working on along four years, and the adaptation of Destroy Madrid.
The collaboration between Txetxu Rojo and Joseba Alfaro began in 2007 with the filming of the medium-lenght film Trimake, where the stunt team performed jumps, fight choreography and chases. After being unable to work together in REM due to scheduling problems, they coincide again in Destroy Madrid. Txetxu has been performing stunts for national and international movies and TV series for over 20 years, as well as TV ads for DGT, Sony, Virgin Mobile, Powerade, etc. He runs the only Spanish school of stunts and he is the founder of the Stuntmen’s National Spanish Association. Besides, he is registered as Antorcha Humana ® (Human Torch), and he is the only stuntman in our country who is able to set himself alight without protection clothes. Visit the official website.
