Hailing from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
My name is Gustavo but I prefer my ¨artist¨ nickname that I’ve been using for several years: ¨Genixo¨. I’m from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Being a child of the 80’s, I grew up loving films of all kinds of genre since the age of five. It was horror that grasped my attention, I used to watch iconic slasher films, like Friday the 13th, The Funhouse, Child´s Play, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I used to rent the same VHS’s from the video store over and over again without getting bored. Nowadays I have some directors that inspired me for getting into horror filmmaking like Eli Roth, James Wan, Robert Rodriguez and Peter Hyams
I found myself behind the lens when I was 14, running around with my Sony Digital 8 camera shooting weird, fantastic horror and action shorts. Later on, when the technological advances of visual effects caught me up, and with my new camera and software, I was able to create things I never thought were achievable, specially with no budget.
I went to 2 different film schools, but it wasn’t quite what he expected. so i tried to learn by myself , watching movies all the time. After taking a few courses in visual effects and editing, I think I became a self-made filmmaker after all. With a focus on practice over theory, making short videos, each one of them teaching me more about how to optimize my material
When I shoot my shorts I´m a one man audiovisual orchestra, I do camera, photography, editing, VFX , direction and artwork, even ¨acting¨ in them, as i have low or no budget at all, but that´s priceless when you see some results. Under the name of WINDAR MEDIA I produce all my original material with the best quality as possible. My goal is to make a feature film who can entertain the audience worldwide and become a professional movie director. I will keep working on that, cause is what i have inside, a living passion.
