The name, "Ninu Nina" stems from the alien language spoken by Robin Williams in "Mork & Mindy" ( a popular 1970's comedy show).



Magic, unicorns and so much glitter are just a few words I like to use when describing the creative world and work of Eduardo Alcivar Gonzalez, a talented film maker who instantly charms you with his warmth, imagination and talent. In fact, I can’t imagine a better song than “ Pure Imagination” when describing his creative process.

Eduardo Alcivar was born and raised in Guayaquil, Ecuador and from a very early age developed a keen sense and love for the arts.

After high school, he studied Graphic Design at Istituto Europeo Di Design, (IED) in Milan, Italy where he also became interested in Film & Photography. Heavily influenced by the works of :

  • Graphic Designers [Bauhaus, Kandinsky, Herbert Bayer],

  • Photographers[Helmut Newton, Tim Walker, Walker Evan]

  • and the films Amadeus [Milos Forman], Brazil[Terry Gilliam], 8 and a Half[Federico Fellini],

Eduardo began a search deeper into the beauty of moving images. Fashion photography and stills were not enough to share his vision. With film, Eduardo feels he can express his visual style and specific aesthetic with the yearning to transport his audience to other places, sharing experiences and leaving with them with something to think about and even relate to.

In 2009 he moved to New York to attend the New York Film Academy and has since completed various short films, music videos and fashion commercials. He is currently prepping for his first feature film, which will be produced and shot later this year in Italy. This is one to watch, thanks Eduardo for giving me the opportunity to interview you and share your work with our audience.

How do your travels influence your visual style in film?

Traveling is my fuel of inspiration. It feeds my brain- I like to observe and interact with every culture in the world, absorb it all and try to emulate them through my work.

It's the best investment you can give to yourself.

Up and coming artists/creatives we should know about?
