Biography

Early life
Fresnadillo was born in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands. In 1985, Fresnadillo moved to Madrid.


Movie career
He started out in photography and cinema studies and then began his career in short films. In 1987, he set up a production company, which produced several short films and commercials. Fresnadillo went on to become a production assistant for Gustavo Fuertes' short film El juicio final (1991) (US title The Final Judgement 1991).

In 1996, he had his debut with the black-and-white short film Esposados (US title: Linked), for which he was also the executive producer. The black comedy tells the story of a couple who are constantly fighting over money; when they find themselves winning the Christmas lottery, however, they have such different ideas about what to do next that the husband tries to get rid of his wife. Esposados won 40 national and international awards. It was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Short Film in the same year, making Fresnadillo an overnight star in Spain.

In 2000, Fresnadillo was the presenter for the Goya Award in Best Short Film. In 2002, Fresnadillo directed his debut full-length picture, the thriller Intacto. The film received several awards, most notably two 2002 Goya Awards (one of them for Fresnadillo in the category of Best New Director) and six further Goya nominations.

He then completed the 3-minute black-and-white picture Psicotaxi (2002), starring and portraying Alejandro Jodorowsky.

In 2006, he directed 28 Weeks Later, the sequel to Danny Boyle's 2002 film 28 Days Later.

On April 7, 2011 it was announced that he will be directing and co-writing the screenplay for the remake of The Crow.
In October 2011, news broke that Fresnadillo was no longer attached to The Crow remake.
