Camilo Mejía

I was born on February 21st, 1997, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Since I was little I had the intention to communicate, no matter how, and it was at the age of 10 that I had my first encounter with a camera. Since then, cinema has accompanied me in my development as a person and as an artist. I studied Film and Audiovisual Communication at the Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo (INTEC). I took workshops offered by the Dirección General de Cine (DGCINE) and Instituto Tecnológico de Las Américas (ITLA) on cinema with a focus on filmmaking. As an artist I am curious about the internal processes of people and how these are projected in our environment.
