ABOUT ME (and what I do).
Gisela Zárate Tobón. I am a Colombian filmmaker and visual artist currently based in Berlin. I completed an MA in Visual and Media Anthropology at Freie Universität Berlin, funded by a DAAD scholarship. For more than 10 years, I have been working as a documentary filmmaker, film-editor, animation creative, and photographer, focusing my interests on social rights, the Global South, anti-discrimination and gender. I am the proud co-founder of VOLŪT Films, currently operating in Colombia and Germany.
My specialty. I am focused on offering integral audiovisual services, oriented to the needs of the project. Whether you are looking for a video that captures the memories of your festival, a thematic campaign for International Women's Day, a documentary that shows the values of your company or a videoclip for your music project, I accompany you from the development of your idea, through pre-production and production to the final editing stage, either as a single videographer or with a team of video and audio crew.
If you want to give a boost to your brand positioning with your animated logo, explain a concept graphically, or make a stunning animated header for your video-podcast, this line of my work will be of great help. I take care of the concept design and aesthetics, I develope the storyboard of your animation, and I walk naturally between Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and Premiere to put your ideas in motion and dynamize your audiovisual pieces.
The post-production phase of an audiovisual project is a second scriptwriting, so don't neglect it. I am an agile, resourceful and experienced editor, and I will make your audiovisual piece have that rhythmic and assertive nuance that, together with the color grading process, will pick up the expressiveness that your project requires. I move like a fish in water in Premiere, Final Cut Pro (7 and X) and DaVinci, among others.
DESIGN AND ILLUSTRATION
A project or a brand must speak through the images that represent it and these must communicate a value and at the same time connect with audiences in an assertive way. I have experience with the aesthetic design of festivals and events, with the design of advertising and broadcasting pieces, with the renovation and animation of logos and when I do editorial design I try to make the audience fall in love at first sight with a text they haven't even read.
