ABOUT LUCAS JATOBÁ

Originally a creative and art director for the advertising industry, Lucas has worked for some of the most creative advertising agencies in the world such as Droga5 in Australia and Contrapunto in Spain, winning more than 30 international awards including 5 Cannes Lions. As a film director, he has collaborated with global brands like Sony, TomTom and Le Coq Sportif.

Recently, his short film “Phenomenality” has been recognised with the Audience Award at the DOC LA Festival (Los Angeles, USA, 2017) and became Official Selection at Flickerfest International Short Film Festival (Academy Award® and BAFTA Qualifying, Australia, 2018), among many other accolades.

LUCAS LOVES: Having sweet things for breakfast, laughing with someone I just met, going to the cinema every week, people who smile a lot, all the animals, renaissance art, women´s hair, Barcelona & Catalunya, polaroids, surfing, Pink Floyd, honest people, the way children think, our Planet Earth, the cosmos and the stars and the mystery of tomorrow.

LUCAS WOULD LOVE TO: go back in time and see the dinosaurs, meet Michelangelo and Spielberg, fly around the Universe, have great-grandsons, swim with the whales, date Liv Tyler, be born again as a bird, die while I´m sleeping.
