 Manizales, Colombia, Guionista y escritor, y periodista cultural ha sido ganador del Premio Ibermedia de Desarrollo de largometrajes (España 2007) con Trafico de Miedo.

Escribir una idea audiovisual o pensada para poner en escena en lenguaje cinematográfico, requiere algo más que inspiración y mucho trabajo. ¿Está el creador preparado para enfrentar los grandes retos que ofrece la industria? Es por esa razón que el desarrollo del proyecto cinematográfico o la incubadora de ideas para el mundo audiovisual, es un gran salto , frente a ese concepto de lucha solitaria de los creadores guionistas que quieren llegar al cine por todos los medios posibles. El Laboratorio de lenguaje audiovisual y creación de ideas para cine es un espacio abierto a todo el público de habla hispana residente en los Estados Unidos.  Escritores de cortometrajes, series de tv, largometrajes y otros géneros, de habla hispana que vivan Nueva York o el área Tri-estatal, tendrán en Felt su primer laboratorio de escrituras creativas y desarrollo de proyectos audiovisuales.
