PortraiTO is an innovative project about a series of micro-documentaries of people who live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada that have an interesting story to tell and that represent the spirit and lifestyle of the city.
This project is produced, directed, filmed and edited by David Laguna, a visual artist with a successful career in the advertising industry and digital media as an experiment to discover new ways to tell stories in a short (micro) format that explores the mindset of the characters while they show how Toronto has influenced in their life.
The first delivery is a pilot of a portrait of Ivan Wanis Ruiz called “The Juggler”. It was filmed in late 2016. This was a no budget project which was filmed in a TAP (The Actors Place) meeting.
The film has been screened in universities, film societies, and public events and the concept has been well accepted by the viewers.
The second chapter of PortraiTO “Lyrical Disciple” is in post-production and it is going to be released soon this year.
We are so proud that our film grain products had been used in this promised project to make it look like film.
