"With passion and lots of work you don't need skills to create beautiful things."
1. Who is Miquel?
Miquel is a dreamer.
A man with the eye of a child.
I'm an optimist and I like to share my view to bring some hope.
2. What do you do?
I'm a filmmaker.
I make documentaries and commercials.
I've loved to play with cameras since I was a child and to 'capture the heart' is my passion.
3. What is the ideology/philosophy/purpose that drives what you do?
It might sound cheesy but I like to confirm that the world is a wonderful place.
Filming all around the world I have seen that even in the darkest places you can find love and hope.
I make an effort to be open-minded and to not prejudge. To travel, to film and to to hear people helps me achieve that.
I try to keep empathy alive.
4. How did you arrive at that ideology?
I grew up in a broken family, I didn't understand why and I used to blame myself.
I was a very sad child.
I was wondering why I was here (in the world) until the day, being 12 years old, a 8mm camera and a Rolling Stones audio cassette came into my hands.
I mixed the music with the images and that day I found my passion.
Since then I'm playing and having fun shooting and editing.
5. What kind of advice can you give someone who is searching for their own ideology/purpose?
I wonder how people can live without a passion.
And I've realized that just making a stop to think who you are and what you want, your life can get much better.
My advice is: find your passion.
With passion and lots of work you don't need skills to create beautiful things.
Miquel is a filmmaker from Barcelona that is currently focusing on photography and documentaries that capture modern Caribbean moments.
