The kind of  movie that is unthinkable: that’s what excited us all. A movie that happens entirely inside a coffin! And believe it or not, when I got the script, I couldn’t stop reading it. An amazing combination of mainstream thriller and cult movie.The perfect project for me to do at that point of my life.

Rodrigo Cortés is a very talented director that knew at all times what he wanted. It is never easy to be creative for a whole movie when you have 1 character, 2 square meters and little more, but I think we achieved what we tried: not to repeat one shot in the whole movie. Always trying to do something different, something that will tell the story in a stylish way.

For sure, Buried is the most difficult movie I’ve ever done. The technical difficulties were huge, but my camera team was awesome! We all knew we were doing something unique.
