Last Dance

Back To Escuella is the last El Tigre episode I directed.

The experience of the series was the high point of my career. I consider myself fortunate to have worked along side so many talented people. And we were lucky to work for a creator who trusted and encouraged us all to add our personalities to the production - to take risks, challenge ourselves, question how things were done, try something new, fail, learn from our mistakes, grow, and ultimately do the best work we could do.

It was a great time.
