I’m Antonio Peláez Barceló (aka, Antonio Peláez), journalist from Spain, now based in Toronto (ON, Canada).
Over more than 20 years of career I’ve been reporting mainly about film and culture , but also about health, wellness, politics and economics. For TV, radio and magazines. In July 2004 I founded Radiocine, a web-radio pioneer in podcasting, online streaming (audio and video) and new technologies, which is still running.
I’ve been covering Film Festivals with mobile devices since Cannes 2011 (iPad2, then). Nowadays I use different software and hardware to produce multicam programs, some of them streamed live: concerts, a 1hr talk between Cannes (France) and Málaga (Spain), videoconferences, etc.
I speak Spanish, English (C2), and French (B2).
Besides reporting, I’ve been always specially attached to cinema.
I’ve written four books about cinema: Montaje y postproducción audiovisual (1st edition, 2015, and renewed 2nd edition, 2022, Altaria Editorial), Rafael Gordon, la conciencia (Huerga & Fierro, 2015), and Manane Rodríguez, voz en libertad (Éride Ediciones, 2017). I’ve also written a chapter for the book Cine centroamericano y caribeño, Siglo XXI (coord. Charo García Diego, Extravertida Editorial, 2021).
I’ve been editor, special effects creator and director assistant of the late Spanish avant-garde filmmaker Javier Aguirre.
I’ve also filmed several short films and one feature documentary: (aguirre), which was premiered at Málaga Film Festival.
