Efrén Camilo: makes short list for Six Strings documentary

"Efrén Camilo, guitar player from Mexico got a spot in the Short List of the Six Strings Documentary by James Smith.

The film will show six stories of passion for playing guitar and make guitar music at any cost.

Here is his story entrance:

A little portion of my story: I always wanted to play guitar. At 15 I learned secretly by using my uncle's electric guitar. I broke it, repair it and lose it. So a friend sold me his guitar almost for free. Since I am left handed and had no money, I decided to build my own guitar. Another friend helped me with excitement, but he was murdered so he never saw it finished. Today when I play that guitar I know his soul is in every note. I work as graphic designer to have money to produce my guitar music.

Romance (Guitar Idol 2009 Entry)

I am a freelance film director based in London, UK and am making a documentary film called SIX STRINGS about one of my passions: guitar music. My aim is to deliver a superb film and with the help of my team, market it worldwide.
Some months ago, I launched a search to find passionate people who may have developed a unique playing style or have an incredible story to tell about guitar music: how it transformed or changed their lives and about the mystique and influence of the instrument, the more extraordinary, heart rending, or radical, the better! Nearly 100 guitarists entered their amazing stories from around the globe.
SHORT LIST of 18 guitarists has been selected. Once our goal of $40,000 production funding is achieved, we will select the six and go into production!
Now WE NEED YOUR HELP to help spread the word and raise funds to produce this film! Furthermore, due to the amazing response and wealth of talent out there, we are looking to make follow-on films depending on the success of the first!
