Andrés Cerda's Biography

Andrés Cerda Photo

Born and raised in Mexico City, Andrés Cerda is a naive, playful director that loves one thing and one thing only…well two things: perfection and developing memorable characters. 
One of the most vibrant young directors in México, Andrés studied Communication Science in Monterrey, where he learnt everything you don’t need in filmmaking. His actual school were his years as a mood scout for top Mexican and International directors. It was at that point when he understood that the advertising industry was lacking in memorable storytelling, and outstanding visual pieces. That was definitely his calling.

Andrés has worked with top brands such as Nestle, Ford, Mattel and Banamex. He already won two bronze Soles at the Sol de Iberoamérica contest in co-direction with Rogelio Sikander; the gold award for New Director at Círculo de Oro de México; and a Bronze Lion at the 2014 Cannes Lions in co-direction with Rodrigo Valdés.

Andres now lives in Madrid, Spain.
