José Medina (1989)
Canary Islands/ Based in Brussels.
«La passion du rouge, le raisonnement du bleu».

Bachelor’s degree in media and communications at UCM. In the last 10 years I have developed creative communications as director-producer, video journalist, creative, editor-cameraman in different media companies and roles. I have had the opportunity to explore the broadcast-audiovisual sector horizontally by participating in feature films, advertising, documentaries, on-line communications and TV series, participating in projects for Paramount Pictures, Universal, 20th Century Fox, Volcano films, Mediapro and European Institutions.

As video journalist I have produced breaking-news, reported current affairs, live streaming and stories for news agencies as Ruptly, NBC, Europaress, Bloomberg, CNN, RAI, TVG, NTV Russia, El País, Shutterstock, Getty Images, TVE, La Sexta and other medias. Since I moved to Brussels I have developed projects as visual creator for the European Parliament, EU Comission, Commite of the Regions, Parlamentarium and others institutions but also corporate and branding content for Proximus, Esports, Brussels Airport, Hub Brussels or Eleven Sports.

Driven by my need to learn, I have obtained a Master degree in teaching for media studies what has allowed me to be in contact with students at workshops in technical dregrees and cooperation learning-programs in South America, Western Sahara, Czech Republic, Belgium and Spain. At Onirica Belina films I have produced my own projects being selected in more than 50 international film festivals, joining with my concept-film to the Lars Von Trier crowdsourced movie «Gesamt» in Copenhaguen .
