My name is Andrea Gonzalez Mereles. I was born and raised in Mexico City. I attended some of the most prestigious institutions; Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, Maine Media Workshops and College in Maine and the American Film Institute Conservatory in Los Angeles. I'm proud of being a 2014 Fulbright Scholar, a 2017 Film Independent's Project Involve Fellow, a 2018 FICG's Talents alumna and a 2019 Berlinale Talents participant. I'm a member of the International Collective of Female Cinematographers (I.C.F.C.) and Apertura. My films have been screened in numerous international film festivals; Viena International Film Festival, Zurich International Film Festival, LA Film Festival, Guadalajara International Film Festival, Guanajuato International Film Festival, among others.
With 10 years of experience as a director of photography, my true interest lies in the art of telling stories. Cinematography is a professional journey I've embarked on but it's also a personal one. My intention is to understand what it means to be a human being; our weaknesses, strengths and doubts, to portray it in my body of work. I believe in filmmaking as a collaborative effort and in story above all.
I'm currently based in Los Angeles, CA.
