My name is Edu Villanueva and I am a filmmaker. I work as a cameraman, video editor and director depending on the project. I am co-founder of Milwaukee Video, I really enjoy working with film and it has always been my true vocation.
Since I moved to Sweden in 2012 I have worked mostly for Sveriges Television SVT. I have also worked as a freelance cameraman with the live broadcasting of the Volvo Ocean Race´s arrival to Gothenburg in June 2015. In addition to this, I have collaborated in the production of commercial videos for the production company Silver Bullet Film and Göteborgs Universitet.
Regarding my background, I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Studies at Ramon Llull University (Barcelona) and a masters in Cinematography at ESCAC, Catalonia’s Film College. For almost 10 years I have worked as an editor, cameraman and assistant for TV channels as well as for private production companies. In 2013 I was in northern Michigan shooting a documentary film about the legendary Stone Circle. In 2012 I directed “Sombra Espejo,” a sport documentary for Barcelona TV. In 2011 I worked as a freelance cameraman and video editor for the advertising agency Tiempo-BBDO in Barcelona. From 2009 until 2011 I worked in Sagrera TV, a film and TV production company based in Barcelona. In 2008 I received an Eurodysée grant and did an internship at TV FRANCE 3, where I worked as an intern news editor.
I constantly update my camera and lighting knowledge and I possess advanced skills with editing software, such as Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, Motion and After Effects.
Working with motion pictures is my passion. I love to travel and I really enjoy meeting new people.
