    About me

    Born in Chile, Andrés Gallegos discovered his passion for films at an early stage of his life. In 2008 he graduated with a degree in audio-visual communications at Uniacc, in Santiago de Chile. He has shot more than twenty short films and six feature films to date as a DP. Andrés was awarded Best Cinematography at Fesancor (Santiago Short Film Festival) Festival for Axion, when he was just twenty-two years old. Motivated by his passion for cinematography, Andrés moved to California to earn his MFA in Cinema at San Francisco State University, where he graduated and received the Graduate Award for Distinguished Achievement. In 2019 he has received the Best Cinematographer Award at the Oakland Short Film Festival. He also has been nominated for the ASC (American Society of Cinematographers) Heritage Awards for his cinematography work on the film Shoe Shiner. His work has screened at Camerimage, Cannes, Raindance, Mill Valley, Valdivia, and more.

    Additional Information

    Like any art form, cinema is constantly looking for mutations; mutations to create new representations of the human condition. I think that the cinematic experience is a theatrical illusion that uses narrative or non-narrative structures as a technic for interpersonal persuasion. I strongly believe that one of the key goals of cinema is to expand the conciseness of society. The democratization of film production has changed the rules of the game, allowing the rising of new cinematic visions. Exciting!
