VISUAL EFFECTS SUPERVISOR / "COSMOS: a SPACETIME ODDYSEY"

Pepe Valencia is a terrific artist and a great person. I very much enjoyed working with him. He and his team conceptualized a lot of complex and important shots for Cosmos: A Space time Odyssey. I am looking forward to working with Pepe and Baraboom! again.
