Mexico: Paco Herrera

Paco Herrera is a Mexico based DoP who has worked in the advertising and film industries since 2000. His approach to lighting and framing reflect his Mexican background and the aesthetics picked up on his many trips around the world.

Paco's working methods are supported by his broad international experience, allowing him to transition from guerrilla-style shoots on location working with available light to the most complex sound stage or back-lot projects; from full-fledged drama to documentary, and everything in between.

Fully bilingual (English and Spanish), Paco also has conversational skills in German and French. He is a Silver Telly award winner for cinematography in advertising, and has won six bronze Telly awards for projects ranging from TV commercials to music and corporate videos. He has also received production grants from the Mexican Film Institute.

Fully equipped and staffed in Mexico, Baklight is Paco's production company, handling all production requirements from concept to delivery and solving all crew and gear needs when shooting in Mexico.

Clients include Ogilvy, Junket Productions (US), Concrete + Clay (US), Kamp Grizzly (US), MTV, Red Bull, El Mexicano (US), FFP Film & Fernsehproduktion GMBH (AT), AZB Creative (AU), Anima Estudios (MX), Septime Ciel (FR) and the Mexican Federal Government, among many others.
