Filmmaker-Director and Editor, Ivan Cordoba was born in 1976 in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Basque Country, but is raised from the first moment in Haro, a small town in northern La Rioja, Spain. From an early age he is surrounded by storybooks, comics, drawing and painting stuff, crafts and later on collections of music albums that were sold for deliveries at the bookstore owned by his maternal family. Somehow influenced by having grown up among colored pencils, erasers, cardboards and all sort of publications he decides, after finishing career of Teaching, studying graphic design and editorial production, which leads him, once finished the corresponding internship, to be hired by the Converse design team, Avia and Kappa in 2004. After working over three years as a graphic designer for catalogues and textiles, and also product designer developing footwear and accessories for these brands, he moves to Barcelona in 2007 to return studying, this time visual arts, specializing in video and multimedia, at international design school IED. It is right there where the evolution occurs towards the design of moving image and where, almost like a revelation, he experiences the fascination with the use of the camera to convey ideas, concepts and emotions. It is precisely while directing an experimental short film for one of the subjects when he notices the strong feeling that he wants to devote himself to writing and directing film projects, whatever the style, the rest of his life.
