Christopher Pozo, 22, from Quito, obtained the first place in the international competition of short films by Directv Cinema + Scholarship for his work `One Off´. The prize consists of an international scholarship at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, one of the most representative and prestigious in the world of cinema. Under the artistic name of Kristofh, Pozo, student of multimedia and audiovisual production at the University of the Americas (UDLA), learned of the contest four days before the deadline of registrations.
“I decided to take the challenge, I stayed until three o’clock writing the script. The next day I called a friend who is a model and studied drama when she was a child (…), recorded on 16, 17 and 18 December, and on the morning of the 19th I edited from one until nine AM o’clock. At eleven I exported the video and uploaded it to YouTube, and as the country’s Internet is not as fast, it took two hours to upload it, and at one PM I presented it. At two o’clock (registrations) were closed,” he says.
