"Into the Forest", "The Ghost of St. Martin's" and "Zellwood" all filmed in 2009 are to name a few. Upon graduating film school, Enrique already had 3 feature films, title of director for punkrockvids.com and his first Music Video, "Rock, Rock" under his belt. Graduating with a 3.5GPA and winning an Instructors Award for lighting for film and video, had Enrique well on his way into the world of film making... Knowing he wanted to explore the art of live music, Enrique set off to Austin Texas to explore the Live Music Capital of the World.
Moving to San Antonio Texas in 2011, Enrique started up his production company, "FRAMEbyRATE" Productions. His company works closely with the San Antonio Talons Arena Football Team and is the Executive Director for the film and video department.
Upon moving, he was hired out to shoot a baby's 1st birthday. Once completed, not only did the family love the final product but found himself landing a couple of other reality type productions.
