About Felipe

Felipe is an Emmy award-winning producer. He is a bilingual and bicultural producer, director, filmmaker, artist, musician & writer creating content both in English and Spanish. Felipe is also the Co-Founder, CEO and Executive Producer/Director of his own production company, IGNI Productions, and his online channel for the arts thegchannel.com. For the last 20 years, Felipe has been producing outstanding high quality storytelling at CNN. Most recently, Felipe worked as Supervising Features Producer at the CNN Vision team in Atlanta, creating special and sponsored programming. Within the unit, he led and managed a team of storytellers in Atlanta and Miami with passion, inspiring and empowering them to fulfill their own creative potential. He also worked in several countries with colleagues, anchors, correspondents and freelancers to get high quality stories on TV, digital and social media. At the same time, he managed budgets and financial forecasts for different shows. He has received several awards and lately has been a guest speaker in film & TV production conferences. Felipe Barral is a storyteller who expresses himself in many ways –through his visual works (documentaries, films, video/art installations & TV shows), his music (both as a performer and composer), his art (painting and photography) and his writing (he’s a poet and a journalist) . He is also a multicultural journalist with a Masters degree in Philosophy. As a filmmaker, Felipe explores and experiments with the audio visual language to create projects that capture the dangerous path of a creative human venture. Listening to the heartbeat of life he thinks in images, syllables and pigments. He talks in music, words and colors. He speaks the visual language that our modern culture understands. He has released 6 short films (The Book of Life, Inhabit, PIXEL, Desire, Dust House and touchME: Dida); short and long format documentaries (including Louvre Atlanta); 3 books of poetry (Múrberon, El Libro de Isamar and Aion); has composed several original scores for silent films and documentaries (including Nosferatu, Metropolis and CNN’s Filling the Blank among others); has done several multimedia installations (including Fire Woman among others); and has performed live both in Chile and the United States. Felipe has taught his “Creative Production Philosophy & Style” to producers, reporters and colleagues from CNNE, CNNI and HLN; and he also teaches it to children and young storytellers in an international school in Atlanta, which led him to be recognized with Time Warner’s Richard D. Parsons Community Impact Award in 2014. In 2010 Felipe produced, directed, filmed (second camera) and wrote the acclaimed Alzheimer’s documentary “Filling the Blank” for CNN International’s World Untold Stories show. He also did a version in Spanish for CNN en Español. Both premiered in 2011. In 2011 Felipe also produced, directed and wrote the special documentary film “Crescendo – la música es vida” (Crescedo - why music is life), the first time CNNE blended fiction with reality in a documentary/film style. The film was released in 500 movie theatres in the US before being broadcasted on CNN. Between 2003 and 2012 Felipe produced and hosted the live weekly segment Juego de Palabras in the show Encuentro on CNN en Español. And between 2006 and 2012 Felipe produced, directed, hosted, filmed and edited almost 300 Juego de Palabras short stories and 4 special shows focused on arts, culture and entertainment. In a special collaboration between thegchannel.com and artsatl.com, Felipe has continue to tell stories related to entertainment in Atlanta. And has continue to inspire audiences around the world with outstanding, thought-provoking and engaging content for different platforms and ubiquitous screens. Always with freedom to push to envelope, Felipe has been working all his life with an entrepreneurial state of mind designed to tell great stories in a fearless way, aiming to achieve high quality and looking at limitations as windows of opportunities. Through his creative point of view, and in collaboration with his own production company, we welcome the opportunity to tell your stories.
