Carles Mestres is the director of photography on director Carles Bosch’s last two feature-length documentaries, Revolution #2 (2009) and Bicycle, Spoon, Apple (2010), winner of both the 2011 Goya Award and the 2011 Gaudí Award for Best Documentary, as well as an Official Selection at the San Sebastián International Film Festival, out of competition.

Mestres began his studies in Film, Video and Television at IDEP in 1986, specializing in cinematography and direction. Upon his graduation in 1989, he began his professional career at EuropaPress TV as a reporter and cameraman.

“Frame Zero” was born in 1990, the production company founded by Mestres that has spent over 10 years carrying projects not only in the production and direction of commercials, but is also the heading under which Mestres works as a camera operator and director of programs, for both state television (both public and private) as well as international broadcasters.

In 2002, Mestres began his freelance career and has since then worked as a director of photography and director of commercial spots, corporate and institutional videos, documentaries, television series and films for various production companies.
