Manuel de Ribera

A feature film beyond conventions


Two young directors, a professional actor and a small film crew embark on a journey to an island in southern Chile. Their goal is to produce an entire feature film in three weeks. They don’t have a script, but only the first lines of a story and the conviction that following a self-created production method will make sure they touch land.

“At the age of 48, Manuel De Ribera gets an unusual inheritance: an uninhabited island in southern Chile, situated facing a small fishing bay. De Ribera is alienated from his friends and family; he’s a jack of all trades and master of none and he grabs this opportunity to wrestle himself free from a society in which he just can’t take root. He wants to create a spot on the island where he can determine and maintain his own rules and values.” – IFFR

Hello, I’m Pablo, creator of Third Eye Media.

I believe that storytelling is the most powerful tool to spread ideas, gather communities and spark action. That’s why I created Third Eye Media: to tell stories that inspire positive change.

After more than 10 years in the creative industries, I have often witnessed the process of an idea becoming a story and the enormous impact that such transformation brings along.

I have spent my life crafting audiovisual stories. I have worked as a film director, photographer, scriptwriter, story consultant, copywriter and communication strategist for independent films, organizations and entrepreneurs. With Third Eye Media, I wish to put all my knowledge and experience at the service of growing our collective awareness, improve our consumption culture and create a better world.

You may have something meaningful to share. Maybe it is a valuable idea at the forefront of your research field, or an event that aims to raise societal awareness, or perhaps a new product that promotes eco-friendly behaviour among consumers. In either case, you care about people, and you are proud of doing work that contributes to a better, healthier, more conscious and sustainable world.

If this resonates with you, I am glad we have connected. And I would love to help distil your message into meaningful media content.

The role of Third Eye Media is to tell stories that connect people, build communities around good causes, improve our culture, destroy old stereotypes, and support a more genuine and authentic perception of who we are.

Are you working on a project that aligns with our vision? Or perhaps are you a researcher or creative professional (designer, coder, marketeer, etc.) who would like to join our network?

Send me a message. I am curious to know what you are up to.
