This site intends to be a showcase of my work beginning with my latest short film FLAT LOVE (2009). The items posted here will be notes, ideas and pictures that were part of the creative process during the making of the film.
Flat Love wins BEST SHORT FILM at The Coney Island Film Festival, Brooklyn, NY!!!
We shot the last part of the film in Coney Island although it was supposed to look like an empty magical Caribbean beach. Obviously, Coney doesn't look like that (as you can tell by the pics bellow). It was a nightmare of a shoot!... Although it all worked out at the end. So happy to get the Coney Island Award! YAY

Here's the text accompanying Flat Love at www.elpais.es:
Narrado por la actriz Isabella Rossellini y ganador, entre otros, del Premio del Público y el Premio al Mejor Corto en el Festival Internacional de Nueva York, el nuevo corto de Andrés Sanz debería estar recomendado por prescripción médica. Para todos los que amando se tropiezan con la misma piedra y aprenden a palos. Para todos los que creen que el cine en corto puede decir tantas verdades como las grandes producciones. Para todos los que aman en tres dimensiones. Flat Love, de Andrés Sanz, corto de la semana en El País.
Narrated by actress Isabella Rossellini and winner, among others, of the Audience Award and the Award for Best Short at the International Festival of New York, the new film by Andres Sanz should be recommended by a physician. For all of us lovers who make the same old mistakes. For all those who believe that short films can say as many truths as big productions. For all who love in three dimensions...
