THE ARTIST

CIRO AYALA

FILMMAKER | OWNER | PRODUCER


  • Ciro Ayala is an independent music video and film director known for his dark and hyperreal style.

    EARLY LIFE
    A child prodigy, his relation with Arts started at age 4, when creating 3d perspective drawings. Inspired by the films of Steven Spielberg, Ciro began making movies at age ten with a Panasonic video camera. At age 15, Ciro edited videos for Interpol, Sport Championships and Identity Films, with his own Video Editing platform, installed at his bedroom. In 2000, at age 19, with producer Facundo Marcías, Ciro wrote and directed his first independent movie, a 30 minutes suspense short called Disfraz. The movie was later shown in the Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre International Film Festival for 3 consecutive years, as well as in Madrid and Paris.

    CAREER IN ASIA
    In 2002, Ciro left his University studies and moved to Taiwan. He went to work for several companies as 3D Architecture Designer, Art Director and Filmmaker, but discovered that he was more creative and efficient working by his own than under the wrong people. So, in 2008 he went on to found Provoke Films with his wife Liu Ming Fei.
    Producing more than 300 works in Europe, Asia, and America, Ciro has been credited on projects for Paul Oakenfold, Armin van Buuren, Roger Shah, Andy Moor, Markus Schulz, Armada Music, Cloud9 Dance, KontorTV, FlatFrog Recordings and Spinnnin' Records.
