Composer - Writer - Photographer - Filmmaker - Artist
Franco Esteve was born in the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, and had a multicultural upbringing throughout the United States and Europe. This multicultural upbringing led to his adoption of the concept of everywhere and nowhere for his views of life, origin, and culture. The same has applied to his professional life as well, covering a multitude of disciplines, feeding his thirst for knowledge and expression.
As a child he developed in music and piano, and also as an actor, acting in local commercials and theater, later developing in other areas of production, photography, design, and film. He’s fully bilingual in English and Spanish, and has a working knowledge of Catalan, as well as a degree in psychology. His professional life reflects a multitude of disciplines, mostly focusing on design, writing, photography, advertising, web development, and film.
He’s produced and directed commercials and music videos, but is best known for his work with The Doll Chronicles series of short films, particularly Consequence, The Doll Chronicles, which he produced and directed. He also composed the music for the series, for which he’s received accolades.
Though his work is more focused on scoring for films, and he has a special love for the genre, he’s never thought of himself as tied down to it. He finds all genres have great music, and loves to explore them all. On a single playlist, he might jump from Nine Inch Nails to Beethoven to Snoop Dogg to Led Zeppelin to The Ink Spots to John Barry to She Wants Revenge.
Mostly he expresses himself as seeking beauty and expressing it, as well as telling a story, no matter the art form. Beauty is his true passion, finding it, seeing it, experiencing it, expressing it. Writing, photography, art, music, films, creative expression is what drives his projects. Sometimes it will be through his poetry, his photography, his books, music or through film, but his main goal will always be to question, to communicate, to express, and to entertain.
