Facundo Lavenia's Summary

I 'm a senior generalist and i’ve been in the film and advertising industry since 2003. I’ve coordinated different work teams several times and I can easily take creative direction as I can give it as well.
In my latest job as a lighting TD, on the first animated feature of academy award winner Juan Campanella, I’ve met great artists and now I’m looking to expand my horizons and gain experience from other studios abroad.
