Daniel Bruno Arvizu
Daniel B. Arvizu is a cinematographer, editor and overall film-maker with numerous credits across production and post-production departments. His first title as director is “The Origins of Music”, a documentary film about the biology of human musical capabilities. As a photographer and video-artist, his work has been exposed in several cities across the world, and was selected in Barcelona for the “Italy in the World” pavilion of the 54th Biennale di Venezia in 2011. His interest in science started at a young age, he studied medicine for three and a half years, quitting to pursue his passion for the visual arts. His visual work has spawned from botanical subjects to the chaotic movements of liquids; from urban landscapes to the human body and the study of identity. He has collaborated with many different directors, producers and artists, in an array of projects around the globe.
