Other innovative recent incursions into the horror film genre include Eduardo Soto-Falcon's short film 'Dhampira'.
-Pop Culture Latin America! (book, ABC-Clio)
'Dhampira' - Eduardo Soto-Falcon's modern gothic short follows the beautiful Mara as she falls under the spell of a mysterious vampire, stylish with a very satisfying finale.
-Sex Gore Mutants (genre magazine)
The test movie allowed Eduardo to experiment with camera angles to convey both character and atmosphere more effectively than he could with just the screenplay. The look of the sets in particular is quite extraordinary.
-Moviestorm (3D animation & previs)
With the set-up of the eroticism between the two friends we are excited on a primal level to watch the events of this scene unfold [...] It has the potential to be an enthralling nugget of cinema.
I am an International and multicultural filmmaker based in Canada and shaped by diverse Latin American and European influences. After growing up immersed in classic Hollywood, Mexican and International cinema, I graduated summa cum laude in Cinema & Photography, along with a minor in Writing, from Ithaca College (Ithaca, NY).
My short films have been shown at 30 film festivals around the world and on TV (including Cinemax, Mexican National TV and the US syndicated show SPROCKETS AND SPLICES). An animatic storyboard of one of my scripts was one of 11 semi-finalists competing for a $100,000 USD prize at Amazon Studios. Over the last few years, I have concentrated on screenwriting. In 2017, I entered 7 different scripts to International competitions and they all reached semi-finals or finals at least once, for a total of over 20 placements so far, including the second round of selection at the Sundance Institute.
I see writing and directing as two halves of the storytelling process, so I write as a filmmaker and cinephile. Every script I choose to write on spec is extremely personal to me, but it's also a worthy story to be told and shared with worldwide audiences that seek alternatives to the repetitive and uninspired mainstream that bombards screens of all sizes.
I write and make films because I'm a storyteller and want my stories to appeal the intellect and reach for the soul. The thing that makes fiction as true as reality is emotion. If the writer feels it, if the performer feels it and if the audience feels it, then it's true.
I currently prepare a couple of short film productions and I'm open to writing and directing assignments in film, TV and digital media, both in English and Spanish.
My all-time favorite directors, spirit mentors and major influences of what I try to do are Orson Welles, Luis Buñuel, Billy Wilder, Fritz Lang, Martin Scorsese, Wim Wenders and Clint Eastwood, and I identify with Steven Soderbergh and Christopher Nolan.
