    Gerardo Herrero

    Spain

    Gerardo Herrero (Asturias, Spain, 1979) studied law at the university of Oviedo and cinema at the ECAM film school. He wrote screenplays for production companies such as Telespan 2000 (La Nariz de oro) and Soylent Films (El último recreo). As a director, he directed visual pieces and commercials for fashion magazine Grazia and international brands such as Ferrari or Coach. His short, PICNIC, has been awarded more than 80 prizes, including best short award at the Málaga Film Festival (2011), Cortogenia (2010), Seminci (2011) and nominations at Robert De Niro’s 10th Tribeca Film Festival (New York) and HBO Latino Film Festival (New York). Other short films are THE ACROBAT, nominated at the 12th Tribeca Film Festival (2013). His latest horror/drama SAFARI, awarded the Canal Plus España project prize in 2013 and selected in the 53rd Semaine de la Critique in Cannes, has drawn inspiration from the slasher genre to depict a Colombine-style killing spree, depicting sharp frames, narrative red herrings, graphic horror and claustrophobic suspense.
