Miles Away /take1 is the pseudonym of filmmaker Patricia Delso Lucas.
Home town: Madrid. Currently based in Brussels. I have also lived in the UK.
I write, direct, light, shoot, record sound, edit and color correct.
I have written, directed and/or shot films in Madrid, Barcelona, Canary Islands, Edinburgh, London, New York, Berlin, Prague, Belgium and Quebec.

More than anything, I am simply in love with the process of writing and shooting films. I don't think I can ever stop doing it.
My passion for arts and storytelling has expanded to stage lighting, drawing and photography. I believe creativity is a generous driving force that knows no limits, nor categories.

I work as a broadcast engineer - life takes you to surprising places...
