María Gisèle Royo

Film Production BA and MA tutor

The film industry never stands still and neither does María, who prides herself on constantly innovating her own creative process and those of her students. The Venezuelan teaches research methods, development, editing and narrative, and art direction on our Bachelor and Masters film programmes. 

Before joining Catalyst in 2020, María founded an independent production company in Sevilla and worked in many different kinds of audiovisual projects. “I’m pretty excellent at working under pressure,” she tells us. 

One of the things that excites María most in life is true kindness. Her biggest piece of advice: never leave your inner child behind.
