João Gonzalez (Portugal, 1996) is an animation director and a musician, playing the piano since he was 4. He took a Multimedia Arts BA at ESMAD University in Porto, where he graduated in 2017, specializing in the field of animation and continuing to study piano independently. He then enrolled at the RCA in 2018.
Because of my musical past, I have a great interest in combining my musical background with my artistic practice in the world of animation cinema and illustration, working as a composer and sometimes instrumentalist in the films I direct.
My films usually cover themes like psychological conditions (such as OCD or Agoraphobia), solitude and surreal settings.
