Colmena Productions

We recently finished filming the movie “Locos y Peligrosos”, a film that combines some of the best comedy actors in Latin America. The project was filmed between Miami and Venezuela and is expected to premier in New York City on 2016.
Our experience working with Unai Arozena as the film’s Photography Director has been extremely satisfactory and productive. Unai’s creativity and critical eye has helped us tremendously in giving the movie the image, lightning, and overall look and feel desired by our team. His recommendations, directions and instructions truly made a difference in the final product. Moreover, his knowledge in graphic design and online marketing has made him key in the promotion of our film, which is expected to play in some of the best theaters all over the world. In particular, Unai’s artwork is wonderfully represented in the main movie poster for Locos y Peligrosos, which was the winner among numerous submissions at a national level.
Besides Unai’s professionalism and technical abilities, we consider Unai an amazing person, team player and friend. We will not hesitate to work with him in the future, as it will be a pleasure to count with his help and guidance.

Freddy Trillo

Unai has lead the photography effort of my institute “Trillo Jiu Jitsu Academy” during 2015. He has been a key partner in the tournaments that I sponsor. Being the owner of my own academy, a former Law Enforcement Officer, an International Police Olympics Champion and multiple Pan American Jiu-Jitsu Champion is something I take very seriously, I do not partner lightly and take extra diligence in ensuring that everyone involved in my events shares the same level of professionalism than I do. With that said, Unai has worked for me on a number of events as a photographer and the level of quality of his images as well as unique shots is something that gets memorialized in his work. Unai has the ability to immortalize the sentiment of a moment and have it say a million words in just one image.

Unai is versatile and easily adaptable to all kinds of people, quickly adjusting his lense to capture the most tense moment of an adult fight or the kindest act between two children in a match. It has been my pleasure to have Unai be part of my team and I look forward to many more.

Sincerely, Freddy Trujillo

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to recommend the Spanish sports and action photographer Unai Arozena. Mr. Arozena has worked with me during numerous national Jiu Jitsu competitions and his work has always been creative and impeccable.

As a multiple Jiu Jitsu World Champion, I am in constant need of powerful pictures for marketing my accomplishments to the world and to potential sponsors in particular. Mr. Arozena has been amazing in helping me develop a great portfolio of multimedia images that has helped me in my career as a fighter.

What I like about his work is the dedication and professionalism, I’m always impressed. He knows the sport very well and is a jiujitsu fighter himself and this has contributed immensely to the quality of his shots, he knows where to position himself and is able to anticipate the shots to give my career the exposure it needs. To be a creative, professional and an expert in the sport is a rare combination that makes Unai unique.

I will continue to work with Mr. Arozena in the future and would recommend his services to other martial arts competitors.
