David Gutiérrez Camps is a filmmaker and visual artist based in
Barcelona. His work combines two opposite trends: one that explores
the depths of minimalism and another that pushes him towards extreme
manipulation. His latest works have been screened in international
film festivals such as CPH DOX in Copenhagen or Images Festival in
Toronto as well as programmed in venues like Anthology Film Archives
in New York or Le Bal in Paris, along with works by authors like
Raymond Depardon or Stan Brakhage.
He grew up in Vidreres (Girona, Spain), 12 km away from the
Mediterranean shores and moved to Barcelona when he was 17 years old
eager to experience film. He studied Audiovisual Communication in
Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) and graduated in 2004. During
this time, he also participated in an exchange program that brought
him to FAMU (Prague, Czech Republic) for one semester. In 2004 David
moved to Amsterdam (Netherlands) where he struggled with digital
technology while washing dishes in a fancy restaurant. Returning to
Barcelona in late 2005, he started a career as freelance editor. His
credits include such feature documentaries as Utopia 79 and Hollywood
at War, in addition to multiple television shows and commercials. He
also directed in 2005 a 30 minutes documentary called Terreny de
Joc(Playground), produced by TVC (Catalan Public Television).
In 2008 Fundacio Riera Gubau gave David a grant to study in the US
and make films, and he enrolled in the Documentary Film Program at the
New School in New York. In the Big Apple, David produced his most
successful films up to date: Water in the Boat (finalist award in
Curt.Doc Festival) and 175 (CPH DOX, Images Festival, Loop Festival).
Back in Barcelona in late 2009, he focuses on directing and works for
brands such as Skype or HP and creates music videos for musicians as
Sanjosex or Guillamino, while preparing his most ambitious project:
The Juan Bushwick Diaries.
