Marina was born in Madrid, Spain, and was drawn from a very young age towards writing and developing short fiction stories. After taking a couple of Creative Writing courses, she decided to drop out of her Biology degree in Madrid and moved to Bristol to become a filmmaker. During the last three years, Marina has worked as writer and director for a varied range of projects: short fictions, documentaries and promotional videos. She has also worked in different roles in the art department, both for student films and professional projects.
Before COVID-19 started, she was about to shoot her second fiction short The Good Robin, a project that explores female taboos around sexuality and STDs. Her main goals after graduation are to find a job where she can learn from experienced professionals whilst developing her own projects on the side.
