A series of clips for the  HBO Documentary film Risky Drinking, illustrating drinking tendencies and the effect alcohol could have in someone's life.


Freddy Arenas is an
independent director 

His work focuses on the semantics of the visual language: he strides to create poetic relationships that convey ideas in a compelling and innovative way.

Throughout his career he has created projects for clients such as The New York Times, California Sunday Magazine, Google and HBO Documentaries.

Freddy is constantly experimenting with new techniques and concepts. He shares his findings and showcases his creative process via Tumblr and most recently, Instagram.



The Sweatshop is a dedicated Tumblr page for personal illustrations, quick animations, gifs, and other drawing explorations.


A place to share a newly discovered interest for live action and visual effects. Full disclosure, there may be an occasional ceramics pic or an NYC skyline popping up now and then.
