DIRECTOR AYRES

about 

RODRIGO BAUMGARTNER AYRES

Hello. I'm a director and writer for film and theatre based in Porto Alegre, Brazil. I recently moved back to Brazil after a five year period in New York City where I graduated in filmmaking at the New York Film Academy (2014), and worked in the film and theatre industries until the end of 2018.

Director's Statement:
"I want to be where cinema meets theatre. Where human struggles and achievements are portrayed through honest storytelling either on the stage or on the big screen.

Olá. Eu sou diretor e escritor para filmes e teatro atualmente situado em minha cidade natal Porto Alegre, RS.
Recentemente retornei ao Brasil após um período de cinco anos em Nova Iorque nos quais me formei em cinema pela New York Film Academy (2014), e trabalhei nas indústrias de cinema e teatro até o fim de 2018.

Minha Visāo:
"Eu quero estar onde se encontram o teatro com o cinema. Onde a condiçāo human é abordada de forma honesta através de histórias para o palco ou para a tela.
