Juan Carlos Rey
Juan Carlos Rey loves to travel and has always felt compelled to see what is behind the next station, beyond the next town, or over the next mountain . He grew up in a small town near Seville, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, which allowed him direct contact with nature. His travel adventures started early and at 17, he covered the Camino de Santiago by bike. He studied Art at the University of Seville and after graduation in 2000 decided to go abroad, first in England and eventually in Germany, where he lived four years. In Germany he discovered animation and made two animated short films that were selected by a few international animation festivals. This made it possible for him to break into the animation industry and to work on the film, Peur(s) du Noir, or Fear(s) of the Dark. In 2007, Juan Carlos returned to Spain and currently works teaching Spanish at the Enforex Language School. He uses his knowledge of animation in class to dramatize some of his Spanish lessons which allows students to learn directly from real situations while putting what they have learned into practice. According to Juan Carlos, learning a language is like traveling, like discovering a new place, like getting to know someone.
"Juan Carlos is an exceptional artist and always answered all of my queries."
