He has received several awards and lately has been a guest speaker in film & TV production conferences.
As a filmmaker, Felipe explores and experiments with the audio visual language to create projects that capture the dangerous path of a creative human venture. Listening to the heartbeat of life he thinks in images, syllables and pigments. He talks in music, words and colors. He speaks the visual language that our modern culture understands.

He has published the books of poems “Aion” (2001); “El libro de Isamar” (“The Book of Isamar, 2000); “Múrberon, el Verdadero Papel de la Poesía” (“Múrberon, the True Paper of Poetry”, 1998); and “Duerme” (“Sleep” in 1998).
