The director Javier Fesser and his producer Luis Manso have come to ESCAC to talk to us about the creative and production process of their new film Campeones, which opens in cinemas on 6 April.

Javier Fesser and Luis Manso have spoken to us about the complexity and richness of working with non-professional actors for this film, but their commitment to singular casting can be applied to their entire filmography. In their own words, they make films that “do not respond to the formula”. Theirs is a very artisanal way of working, with a team that is very involved in all phases of production and very open to everyone’s contributions. From the process of finding the perfect location to the value they give to all the props, the level of detail with which they take care of their productions makes them all have this peculiar and identifiable universe.

Fesser and Manso have been working together for 25 years, since they created the production company Películas Pendelton, with which they began making short films and advertising. They made the leap to feature films with El Milagro de P. Tinto and since then they have made La gran aventura de Mortadelo y Filemón, Camino, for which they won six Goya Awards (including Best Film, Best Direction and Best Screenplay), and the animated film Mortadelo y Filemón contra Jimmy el Cachondo.
