01 About me..

My name is Lluis Gratacos, a Spanish Freelance Flame Artist and AfterEffects op, living in London.

I have been working in the Audiovisual sector since 1992 and I have 20 years experience as a Flame Artist to date.

I have a background working in different post production houses from MCR to Flame Artist in Barcelona.

In 2010 I became a freelance worker as a Flame Artist with projects in Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, London and Lima (Perú) doing mostly advertising, cinema and you different motion graphics projects with After Effects.
