‘Hacer cine’ is a collaboration with artist duo Magam creación musical about the process of filmmaking and the power that iconic elements such the clapperboard or the film soundtrack exert over our imaginary and expectations.

Composed of found footage constantly playing preliminary scenes from film shootings, the clapperboard works as the link between the cuts off, entering in a loop of deleted scenes that becomes the script itself. As the assembly only shows the very brief moment before taking action and the soundtrack seems to lead a linear narrative, it makes the spectator seek a constant action, a state that gradually becomes the very reason of the film.
