Deborah Palomo

With a degree in Information Sciences from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Deborah boasts a wealth and variety of experience in the media field, which she first became acquainted with as a journalist in various areas (news, current affairs magazines and information relating to film), later specialising in film and TV as Head of Press.

In 2004, the Almodóvar brothers, Agustín and Pedro, recruited her as Head of Communication for the production firm EL DESEO and for Pedro Almodóvar in Spain, where she worked alongside them for eight years.

From 2004 to 2012, Deborah was responsible for all of EL DESEO’s productions directed by Almodóvar and other renowned directors, including:
The Skin I Live In, Broken Embraces, Volver, The Holy Girl, The Headless Woman, La Vida Secreta de las Palabras, My Prison Yard, José & Pilar, Caravana, César & Zain, El Cobrador: In God We Trust, The Last Summer of La Boyita, and the TV series Mujeres.

Before that, she spent just under six years working for the distributor and producer FILMAX, where she was in charge of management tasks relating to presence at national and international festivals. Deborah worked as part of a team to promote no end of films – Amores Perros, The Machinist, The Nameless, Darkness, Open Range and Being Julia, to name just a few –, as well as working on press campaigns with a number of international artists including Alejandro González Iñarritu, Harrison Ford, Annette Bening, Kevin Costner, Kathryn Bigelow and Christian Bale.

Today, her vast experience has led her together with ELLAS COMUNICACIÓN to provide global communication services in different cultural disciplines, as well as lending customised guidance for artists in terms of their image, strategy and media placement.

Elio Seguí

T. 636 60 85 41 –

With a Law Degree from the Carlos III University in Madrid and having specialised in business management at London’s Westminster College, Elio is an expert in film communication and boasts a wealth of knowledge in the various media and professional profiles, with significant experience and renown in the audiovisual sector.

She has worked as Head of Communication for the last twelve years, firstly at TESELA PRODUCCIONES CINEMATOGRÁFICAS, and then for ATÍPICA FILMS. Her work has not only involved developing and implementing communication campaigns for their productions, but also applying branding for directors and new actors.

Elio has often worked with professionals that were unknown to the media, leading their image campaigns right from the inception of the project to ensure that, when the time came for their commercial launch, those “unknown” artists would be chased by the media.

In fact, some of the most outstanding directors and actors on today’s cultural scene embarked on their professional journey with TESELA and came to fame guided by Elio Seguí, including:

Daniel Sánchez Arévalo, Achero Mañas, Juan José Ballesta, Alberto Rodríguez, Óscar Jaenada, Santi Amodeo,Teresa Hurtado, Jesús Carroza, Antonio de la Torre, Adriana Ugarte, Raúl Arévalo, Esperanza Pedreño, Alex O’Dogherty, Adrian Lastra, Julián Villagrán, Tristán and David Ulloa, Ángeles Gónzalez-Sinde, Blanca Romero and many, many more.

Standing out in her career on the international scene are titles such as Roma by Adolfo Aristarain, The Wind by Eduardo Mignogna, and Elsa & Fred by Marcos Carnevale, all of whom are professionals of great renown in their home countries. On the Spanish scene, mention should be made of November, 7 Virgins, DarkBlueAlmostBlack, Pudor, After, Cousinhood, Unit 7, Family United and Marshland.

Elio’s wealth of experience in communication and production has allowed her to efficiently manage different events, interviews, conferences, press conferences and so on, whenever a carefully designed communication plan is needed. Her deep knowledge of the professionals who work in the different media, together with her ability to prioritise the needs of each one are the keys to the success of every project she works on.
