This is my art, my passion, my expression & my inner self. Hello everyone and welcome to the official Urreola Film website. My name is Raul Adrian Urreola, a San Diego born Latino American Filmmaker.
This is the only thing in my life I know I can do. There is nothing else for me. If I cant do this then I am nothing
I have been behind the camera since I was 13 years old. The very first films that I can remember was David Lean’s Doctor Zhivago and of course Star Wars A New Hope. The film making road began even before then when I played with toys using my imagination to build worlds, then overtime I turned to paper to write it down. Then it became an obsession with trying to capture it with a camera.
On September 2nd 2010, the date that I bought my very first digital camera, a T2i, I decided to pursue my dreams of becoming a Director and have been working in the industry everyday since. It has been a long and unbelievable journey. From shooting in 120 degree heat in the middle of the Sand Dunes, to selling out Theaters with my teams first feature film “Carbon”. Ive been places and done things that I could never imagine in a lifetime doing. I’ve never had vast resources, lofty connections or even a helping hands, but in part I think that’s what has shaped me into the filmmaker I am today and the artist I hope to become.
This is has been a long and unbelievable journey
I Promise you that the only thing you will see here on my website is my exact expression of my inner most and deepest emotions, those very secret thoughts and feelings. There is nothing else I can give to the world. For a long time I tired to be the filmmaker that fit into a box or tried to follow the popular path. Here on my web site and You Tube page, you are going to see an exact expression of my soul through my art in whatever means I have to do it. That I will promise you. I want to thank you so much for taking the time and visiting my website.
