Marcel Juan, is a director and photographer from Barcelona. He studied graphic design, but his interest in photography and the moving image has gradually taken an interest in these areas . His audiovisual and images owe much to the graphic influences he received in the early years of his career and are marked by a particular sense of tempo, framing, aesthetics and light. In his work he highlights the taste for poetic, human, and sometimes certain notes of humor and surrealism. He has directed commercials, music videos, fashion films, mini-series for television, curtains for multiple channels, films and audiovisual museum of the Brazil Cup in Rio de Janeiro.

This document reflects the choice of the future through the decision making to join a young and chart their careers, turning point in the choice, and this conditioning his own life but also that of their society and their environment. Juan Marcel builds a future scene where the material things are relativized, where spirituality and small are exalted and wealth can change aspect. The director, demonstrates the contrast between the vision of the elderly and youth, made to mark two periods, two states in the individual life but also in the history they share, and they modify hopelessly. With a reflection framed in the culture of the postmodern, the less is more and the appreciation of intangibles, in favor of a more humane and balanced world, the director leaves us his views on investing in life, at work and who knows, perhaps in love.
