I’ve always wanted to shoot a one take video and I couldn’t have pulled it off without this man. Alberto really takes time to understand the artists he works with and the message they’re looking to convey. He was an absolute dream to work with. His quick thinking and creative problem solving helped turn this from a crazy pipe dream to a fully realized bucket list item
Throughout the process, he worked closely with me to come up with beautiful, unique, narrative concepts. Through out my experience of working with him he has consistently gone above and beyond, and has been a complete and total professional every time. Alberto is a motivated, talented, professional, creative, and passionate individual and I highly recommend him.
Alberto has directed over 10 projects with Rubicon now including a full length feature film, His creativity, professionalism, and interpersonal skills create an engaging work environment in which other creatives and individuals want to be involved in, making it clear that I intend to produce many more projects with Alberto for the next years to come.
Alberto assisted in creating several of our videos aimed toward prospective students, as well as with portraiture photography projects. He proved himself to be very detail oriented, quick to respond and also offer ideas, and was able to adhere strictly to deadlines. His vision and communication ability helped us achieve the end projects “in our minds,” with even better results than we were able to originally conceptualize.
TANK YOU FILMS
We have been collaborating with Alberto for 5 years now. A music video for Alt-Metal legends The Melvins,and a Horror-Suspense feature to be filmed in Montreal-China in the winter of 2019. We enjoy working with Alberto because of his unparalleled creative vision and for his passionate commitment to the craft of filmmaking, as we as his prowess in capturing the human experience in his visual storytelling
I worked with Alberto who conceptualized and directed my music video for my first single Witness. I can honestly say the performances from both myself and the other performer in the film would not have been the same without him. He is extremely talented as a directly and undeniably passionate. It was a great shoot!
