The Acrobatic Drone, the big new LaLiga MEDIAPRO audiovisual feature 
Filming has already begun around all the LaLiga Santander grounds 

LaLiga and MEDIAPRO are currently filming some spectacular images from around the grounds of the LaLiga Santander teams thanks to a new “acrobatic” drone, capable of recording footage from every corner of the stadium, from the pitch-side tunnel to the top of the stands.

The project, led by LaLiga together with MEDIAPRO, consists of filming in every stadium to build up a database of images which will help to feed the match day broadcast content and the LaLiga Santander in-house shows providing a unique, immersive experience for all Spanish football fans.

Iván Merino, the two-time Spanish drone-racing champion was signed up for the filming, visiting each one of the stadia around the country with his special equipment. A mini drone capable of moving at super-high speeds and getting in and out of any nooks and crannies in the football grounds. Kitchens, changing rooms, offices, tunnels, stands, corridors, roofs, providing unique, never-seen-before images for the football fans. 

The drone’s battery is so small, to help facilitate its movements, that each flight lasts just three minutes. In addition, Iván has added a customized Go Pro 10 camera which weighs as little as possible but at the same time keeps its 5k recording quality. A drone which is without stabilizers or sensors, controlled 100% manually for maximum acrobatic capability. With a top speed of 180 km/h in one second, quicker even than a Formula 1 car or a Moto GP bike.

“Here at LaLiga we’re constantly trying to improve the quality of our audiovisual productions trying to create better content for our fans around the world. Using innovative filming techniques such as acrobatic drones allow us to present spectacular, immersive images from every little corner of the grounds of the LaLiga Santander”, commented the LaLiga Audiovisual Director, Melcior Soler.

“This new filming feature will further enrich the LaLiga broadcasts, improving the audiovisual experience for fans around the world. The images captured by the drone will allow viewers to see never-before- seen footage of their favorite grounds”, explained Òscar Lago, Head of Production at MEDIAPRO.

The Camp Nou, San Mamés and the Wanda Metropolitano are just some of the grounds where footage has already been filmed with the remaining grounds set to be covered in the coming days with the images being aired across all operator platforms both at home and abroad in future match days.

This new audiovisual technology used by the LaLiga and MEDIAPRO joins the drone which is already being used during matches for live aerial shots, the multi-camera signal for enjoying matches via simultaneous viewing windows, the aerial camera, the film-quality camera and 360 replays, etc.

This Sunday sees HBO Max premiere “Venga Juan”
Juan Carrasco is back after the success of “Vota Juan” and “Vamos Juan”

This Sunday November 28th sees HBO Max premiere episode 1 and 2 of “Venga Juan”, with a Juan Carrasco at the height of his powers. Thanks to a series of sliding doors, he works from a spectacular office, he’s trimmer and with more hair. But everything comes tumbling down when he gets caught up in a local council corruption scandal.

The 8-episode series produced by 100 Balas (THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO) for HBO Max is the continuation of the acclaimed comedy “Vota Juan” (Season 1) and “Vamos Juan” (Season 2), a winner of a Feroz Award for Best Comedy and a recent winner of an Ondas Award for Best Comedy Series.

“Venga Juan” sees the same lead cast back as in the two previous seasons “Vota Juan” and “Vamos Juan”, led by Javier Cámara as Juan Carrasco, along with María Pujalte as Macarena, his loyal director of communications whilst he was minister; Adam Jezierski, who was his personal assistant; Joaquín Climent, as the implacable Vallejo; Cristóbal Suárez, as the charismatic Recalde; Yaël Belicha as his wife and Esty Quesada (“Soy una pringada”) as his daughter.

New faces for the third season include Manolo Solo, a Goya winner for best supporting actor in “Tarde para la ira”; Ramón Barea, a Film Writers’ Association medal winner for best supporting actor in “La boda de Rosa”, and Eduardo Blanco (“El hijo de la novia”, “Kamikaze”), among others.


Juan Carrasco has reached the height of his powers. Thanks to series of revolving doors, he’s now got a spectacular office, has lost 10 kilos and above all, has regained his hair. In Juan’s new life there’s room for a lot of things but not his wife Paula, his daughter Eva nor his former chief of press, Macarena. Everything starts to fall apart when there’s no escape from his past in Logroño. Papers emerge which see him caught up in a local council corruption scandal and mark the beginning of the end and his attempts to avoid going prison. A get-away which sees him try to erase his past in Logroño... and along the way makes him realize that what is wrong is his present.
