I'm Juanchi González, and I've been working as a director, editor, screenwriter, visual effects artist, and creative for the last 20 years.
I currently split my time between freelance solo work and my role as creative director for Artok, a video production and post-production house based in San Juan, Puerto Rico, with regional (Caribbean & LatAm) and international reach.
Over the years I've harnessed my passion for music and movies, creating music videos for artists—my favorites Rauw Alejandro, Mora, Guaynaa, Cazzu, SOJA, and Álvaro Díaz— and advertising campaigns for brands —New Balance, Kia, Evertec, Walgreens, Popular, to name a few—.
But at the core of my work is my love for filmmaking. I got to make my first short film "Los Unos y Los Otros" in 2009, and since I've dedicated my free time writing screenplays for short films and long features.
My latest work is one of my greatest joys: a bilingual short film script, handprinted in risograph, titled "Guiones para películas que no existen, Vol. 1: Música de Tortura / Screenplays for Movies That Don't Exist, Vol. 1: Shock Chords."
