Home – A short documentary film

While on a recent vacation to Medellin, Colombia, a friend of mine posted a link to a fundraising site on his facebook page. Since I was already in the city and had my Canon 60D with me, I quickly contacted Max Solorzano through facebook and met up with him to shoot this short spontaneous documentary. I figured that I could contribute my services to help this noble cause. It was both heart-wrenching and heart-warming to meet some of the kids and the people there, who selflessly give of their time and energy for these children in such need. It was a true honor to have shot, directed and produced this short film. Read the rest of this entry

NYU Student Films (1994)

This collection of student films was originally shot on 16mm B&W stock in 1994, during a 6 week intensive film course at New York University, Tisch School of the Arts where Wilson Santos studied. After years of lugging a green rucksack full of these old film reels from apartment to apartment, Santos finally rescued them from oblivion, projected them on a screen and re-shot them using a Canon T2i. Although Santos hasn’t produced another film since then, choosing instead to write, produce music, design, study and educate, looking at these shorts and now working as a professor at Full Sail University has inspired Santos to grab a camera and start shooting again. Let’s see what 2013 brings.

*All films were written, directed, produced, and edited by Santos at NYU, 1994.
