I'm happy to recommend JC, I worked with him once, and he was very responsible, creative and reliable.

I'm looking forward to work with him again in the near future.

Juan Carlos was my choice for a series of videos for Food & Wine Magazine. He was fantastic! I would highly recommend him as he produced beautiful cinematography was great to work with.

Juan Carlos Lelo de Larrea was my choice to co-produce, direct, and post-produce a set of music videos for my albums “vol. 2” and “vol. 3” due to his reliability, attention to detail, willingness to understand my project’s needs, and obvious talent behind the camera. He proved himself on all these counts repeatedly throughout the pre-production, production, and post-production period, further displaying capable leadership of his team, commitment, and honesty. The entire experience was superb, and the results speak for themselves - accomplished, artistic videos that exceeded my already high expectations. He stands out in our film industry, and I would recommend him without reservations.

Juan Carlos is an amazing filmmaker with a creative eye and a stylish use of lighting. Would totally recommend him for both commercial and artistic gigs, including corporate videos and music short films.
