ABOUT ALVIE

My name is Álvaro García, mostly known as Alvie. I currently am a student of Audiovisual Production for Film and Television, with a degree in Social Sciences, focus in Photography and Digital Editing, from the Universidad Latina de Costa Rica in Heredia. I'm interested in all things production from commercial and editorial photography, to theater and filmmaking; In addition, I have developed a personal interest in branding, marketing, and design.

My love for production started while working for a non-profit theater organization. For five seasons, I fulfilled multiple roles, from Lighting Designer, and Stage Manager, to Assistant Set Designer. Additionally, I have had the opportunity and privilege to share my technical knowledge by teaching a high school level theatrical production mini-course. All while making a lot of friends and developing great memories and experiences in the process.

 

In the field of photography, I have earned a recognition from a Canon photography workshop. My work had been part of a collective exhibition in Berlin, as I was studying photography, among incredibly talented and inspiring teachers and highly motivated peers.
