Director's Biography:

Juan Emilio Yanes, of US nationality, came to live in the Dominican Republic with his Cuban parents when he was 3-years-old. He is a Business Administrator by profession and, up to very recently, was the Manager of Sales in his family business.

Juan Emilio, with a desire to combine a series of passions, decided to establish his own company, Ztadium Studios with the goal of creating shows and interactive films that add value to the film experience for the viewer by getting them involved and being part of the content.  

His first project is the expression of his love of nature mixed with a desire to produce material that will constitute a positive contribution to society. In doing so, he has taken into consideration an educational dynamic that achieves a sensibility on the topic of development. It is with this in mind that he created what is today called TERRA.
