Nicolas is a native of northern Spain. The son of two doctors, he started his career filming his father’s operations to be used during his classes at university.
He established his memorable storytelling style early on, his commercials for Atletico Madrid earning him two Bronze Cannes Lions and were shown at Museum of Modern Art in NY and at the Reina Sophia Museum in Madrid. His work is infused with an unexpected hyper-reality and levity. Nicolas’ sensitive hand with actors and real people alike lends his films strong performances. His chemistry of subtle wit and humor, visual storytelling and a beautiful cinematic aesthetic set his work apart.
Nicolas believes the strongest ads are always the result of a great idea but also a collaboration with the agency, the client and his team. He is a hands-on director with an eye for solutions that support creative.
