Carte blanche

An original idea by Santiago Tabernero, an unpublished, 90-minute television proposal, in which each week a character the challenge of making a program to “his tastes” with the guests and the performances of your choice.

If they accept the challenge, they had “carte blanche” to choose guests attending the appointment, musicians live acting and other elements that gave way to “program”. This experience allowed know unpublished profiles of these characters and enjoy unforgettable encounters with their guests.

The basis of the decor was common for all: a stage surrounded by three screens which makes high-quality allow you to customize the set of photographs, graphics and images in motion, seeking to recreate worlds that reflect the personality of each night presenter.
