Alejandro Amenábar is one of the best Spanish directors, acclaimed internationally thanks to movies like The others and The sea inside. I saw his first movie, the masterpiece Tesis, when I was thinking of becoming a filmmaker and it really made an impression on me, it actually probably pushed me a bit more towards the edge.

So to be called to do with him the biggest beer commercial in Spain, it is an honor. Specially if it is actually his first ever ¨commercial¨, and actually is not really an ad but a short.

Alejandro is a joy to work with, a true gentleman. It is nice when you work with talented people that are very nice. It makes life on set so much easier and enjoyable. It also gives you hope on the human race.

Dakota Johnson has just had the success of 50 shades of Grey, and Quim Gutiérrez is an amazing actor, probably one of the most talented of his generation.

Anyway, it is long because it is a short, not only a commercial. I hope you enjoy it!
