These are the twelve o´clock in a mysterious pub. There are eight tables occupied and a corpse in the bathroom. Everyone gathered in the local seem to hide something that relates to and involves them in the crime. But who are these people really? What are they doing here? What is this place really?
Xs cinestudio worked with Videorinth to create one of the most underground series ever shot in Spain.
The Third Place works in a modular editing narrative, that can recall Pulp Fiction or Mulholland Drive. The story submerge in different cinema genres: Thiller, Terror and drama. Combining narrative and stetics thanks to Collar´s experience in video art and experimental cinema.
Half way between Twin Peaks narrative and 2046 stetics, The Third Place explores diferent atomospheres that touch Cine noir and works at the same time with colors that could remember movies directed by Zhang Yimou, Wong Kar Wai or Tarsem Singh.
First Season is composed by 8 episodes of 15 min each

Its always cool to work with creative and talented people, this time was no exception. Vostok studio and XS studio worked together to bring this spot to life.
This is a demo XS Studio made in partnership with Riot Cinema Collective. Its a Book Trailer made for Tregolam Team, to show possible clients and make a small showreel that might open a few doors. It was shot near Madrid, produced by Carola Rodriguez, shot by Creative Bruno Teixidor and I. We focused on a book called “Poetics for Cosmonauts” which by the way is one of the most significant inspirations for the script of the feature film “The Cosmonaut“.
More than taking it as a shoot, the team enjoyed a great evening on a sunny sunday near madrid. I will like to thank all the Team, starting with Riot, which helped us with the production, our great actors Deborah Guerrero and Juanma Mallen, our voice off Steve Galache which also performed a great job as an actor in “The Cosmonaut” and Vostok studio for supporting the project.
Vostok Studio and XS Studio worked together to make this video. ABCKit is an app for iOS to teach preschoolers the letters in Spanish based on the Montessory Method. Available for Ipad, Iphone, Ipod touch. It was created for Arquinauta, which is a strategy consulting company for web and mobile design.
We had a small crew approach, produced by Carola Rodriguez and shot by Creative Bruno Teixidor and I. Arquinauta was delighted with results. One more win for the team.
By the way, ABCKit won the Laus 2012 price for its outstanding design. Congratulations!
