Always curious, Inka combines her passion for science, nature and travelling in her work as a science journalist. Born in Germany, she moved to Valencia in 2012 to live near the ocean – a lifelong dream of hers. WHITE WAVES is born from another passion: surfing. The documentary allows her to not only investigate widely unnoticed pollution in our seas, but also show how surfers’ love for nature can positively affect things. “A story can only be a good story if you see the sites of the events with your own eyes and listen to the people.”
CARLOS TOROCAMERA & EDITOR
Before even starting his career in audiovisual communication, Carlos bought his first camera to cover sports events and enter into the production of videos for music festivals. His work gives him the possibility to capture in images all that relates to people and life. In doing so, nature and the sea have always played a special role for him. Surfing himself for almost two decades, water and waves let him free his mind and search for new inspiration – for his life, for WHITE WAVES. This helps Carlos to find the right composition of pictures to show the problem of marine pollution in all its complexity.

Over the course of our travels he will search for the sounds and details for inspiration to produce an atmospheric film score.
Jordi has been playing instruments since he was five and never lost the urge to keep playing them. While improvising music for WHITE WAVES, he kept the idea of playfulness. His sound is inspired by moments in or near the sea, always keeping in mind the most visceral feelings he has for the sea: his instinctual respect of what lies beneath its surface, awe at its immensity and potential, and sadness and anger with its corruption.
Aarón and his associate Nacho established an independent design studio in 2010 in Valencia; Mr. Simon that carries out graphic and product design projects based on a solid concept, considering that aesthetics are also important.

César is a web designer and curious mind, enjoys the creativity in his work environment and the multiplicity that every new project brings. His connection with the sea started early by sailing on a boat, spending summers on the deep blue sea. After a couple of years living in Netherlands, he moved back to Valencia in 2011 and discovered a new passion: kite surfing. The link between sport and the sea offers him disconnection and at the same time connection. Disconnection from the world of computers and internet, but connection to himself as a human being. “The sea shows how insignificant we are.”
