Ignacio "Nacho" Vigalondo (born 6 April 1977 in Cabezón de la Sal, Cantabria, Spain) is a Spanish filmmaker.

Biography

Movie career
In addition to receiving an Academy Award nomination and a Best Short Film Award nomination at the European Film Awards, Vigalondo's 2003 short film 7:35 de la Mañana received the Bronze Moon of Valencia at the Cinema Jove – Valencia International Film Festival and the Prix UIP Drama at the Drama Short Film Festival.

He finished his first full length feature film, Los Cronocrímenes (English title: Timecrimes), in 2007, which he also co-starred in.

Vigalondo revealed on his official blog that his next film would be a Spanish-language alien invasion horror entitled Extraterrestre. "Scifi Latino" translates the plot: "Vigalondo writes that this will not be like a War of the Worlds with Tom Cruise, where a regular person manages to somehow closely witness all major invasion events. He writes that most people will experience a global alien invasion without even knowing it has happened, by listening to rumors, or engaging in pointless activities. Hence Extraterrestre."

Popular comic book blogsite Bleeding Cool reported in mid-2011 that Vigalondo was recruited to direct a silver screen adaptation of Mark Millar's Supercrooks.

Vigalondo has completed a script that will be a twist on the Kaiju genre and an homage for the Godzilla franchise. Vigalondo's plans are to deliver a serious film with "old school" practical effects on a low budget. 2014 wrote the script and directed the segment Parallel Monsters for the Anthology film VHS: Viral.

In the Spanish countryside, a middle-aged man named Héctor (Karra Elejalde) and his wife (Candela Fernández) live in a home that they are renovating. Héctor looks at the forest behind their house with binoculars, when he sees someone who turns out to be a young woman undressing.

After fleeing and breaking into a mysterious building, Héctor is contacted by a scientist (Nacho Vigalondo), who warns him of the bandaged man and guides him to his location, promising safety. The scientist convinces Héctor to hide from the bandaged man in a large mechanical device. However, when he leaves the machine, he discovers that he has traveled approximately an hour back in time.

The film is an eight-minute long black and white short that depicts a Spanish woman encountering a strange singing man in a coffee shop one morning. The strange man turns out to be a suicide bomber, who professes his love through the words of the song to a woman who turns up every day at 7:35 in the morning (de la mañana). The others in the cafe have prerecorded lines to say at points during the song (or they risk the threat of being blown up) and even a short dance routine.
