Joan Amat Managing Director
Joan started out studying multimedia and photography. His professional career began at a small video company in Barcelona as an editor. Two years later he moved to an advertising agency as a producer and editor. Throughout these formative years the visual effects process always fascinated him. This interest led him to meet Xavi Tribó and David Gómez and they have been close associates ever since. In 2006 he decided to move to Madrid to take a Masters of Postproduction with Advanced Systems of Autodesk.
After 5 years in Madrid he was lured back to Barcelona to head up Production at Glassworks Barcelona.
Xavi Tribo Head of Technology
Barcelona post-production facilities have shared one common factor over the years: Xavi Tribo, who was Technical Director and head of R&D projects in the best post-production companies in Spain.
Xavi has always been at the forefront of emerging technology, developing the first digital cinema viewing system in Europe for Paul Newman's "Where the money is" in 2001 and the first European Stereo Image Processor in 2008. He was also responsible for the transition from 35mm to a solely digital workflow for the San Sebastian Film Festival.
We are very proud to have him join our team at Glassworks as Head of Technology, leading the way beyond traditional workflows and delivery formats.
