Diego Hurtado de Mendoza started his career in filmmaking as a writer and director on documentaries around the world for FABRICA –the Research Center on Communications of Benetton founded by Oliviero Toscani. Upon returning to Spain he started directing commercials for Ford, Nivea, MTV, Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores de España and collaborating in projects with Vice, Vogue, MTV and for the National Ballet of Spain. His experience in documentary filmmaking give his commercial work a natural feeling of authenticity that he combines with quirky humor and a carefully crafted cinematography. He is constantly refining these elements to deliver playful and energetic works combined with a powerful aesthetic approach. This growing interest in aethetics has meant that some of his latest works also include a fashion film for Vogue –which have been screened at the Berlin International Film Festival and has been awarded at the Madrid International Film Festival and music videos for international talent with 80 million views on Vevo.
Always innovating, he has brought immersive 360 video to Carbo Films 360 VR, the projects from this specialized division can be seen here: Carbo Films 360 VR
