Alfonso Cuaron Net Worth $40 million

Alfonso attended the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and studied philosophy there. He then attended Centro Universitario de Estudios Cinematograficos (CUEC) which is part of UNAM, to study filmmaking. There he met cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, and they would create his first short film entitled “Vengeance Is Mine”.

Cuaron started his career working as a technician for television in Mexico. He then transitioned to directing, and would become an assistant director for various Latin American film productions including “Romero”. In 1991, he got his first big-screen directorial work, Hishfirst full feature film entitled “Solo con tu pareja” about a womanizing businessman who believed he contracted AIDS after having sex with an attractive nurse, starring Astrid Hadad and model Claudia Ramirez. It was very successful, and led Cuaron to direct an episode of “Fallen Angels”. In 1995, he released his first feature film produced in the United States, called “A Little Princess” based on the novel of the same name. He then worked on a modernized version of “Great Expectations” starring Ethan Hawke and Gwyneth Paltrow, before returning to Mexico to film “Y Tu Mama Tambian’, which became an international hit and was critically acclaimed, drawing an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay for his work.

In 2004, Alfonso directed the third film of the “Harry Potter” series entitled “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”. He received flak from some of the fans of the series but author J.K. Rowling loved his work. He then worked on another novel adaptation – “Children of Men” – which starred Clive Owen and Michael Caine, once again gaining critical acclaim, and three Academy Award nominations.

Alfonso then founded the production company “Esperanto Filmoj”, which would be responsible for creating his later films. In 2010, he developed the space drama “Gravity” which starred George Clooney and Sandra Bullock; the film would receive 10 Academy Award nominations, and he would win the Best Director award, becoming the first Latin American to ever do so.

Cuaron’s next project would be 2013’s “Believe”, a series that was part of NBC. Latterly it was reported that he is focused on directing a project about a Mexican family in the 1970s.

For his personal life, it is known that Alfonso married actress Annalisa Bugliani in 2001 and their marriage lasted until 2008. They have two children, and he also has a son prior to that marriage. He is known to now be in a relationship with writer Sheherazade Goldsmith.

#Quote
1Tim [Webber] came to me with the idea 'let's do it mainly CG', and I went 'no way..that's going to suck. We're going to do it as much practical as we can'. So we tried the conventional rigs and stuff. We tried cables and twisted arms and stuff, and I think it was three hours into the first day that it was so obvious that it wouldn't work.. And there's another thing. Wires give you this axis when you're rolling, and we needed several axises, so the wires weren't going to do it.. We wanted to give it a photo-real look from the first minute. I remember saying that when we finished the film I wanted NASA to call us and say they were suing us for putting cameras in their ships.
2[on the physicality of Sandra Bullock's performance] It was more like a dancer really with choreography, because it just wasn't marks, it was about timing. So it was very complex and I'm amazed at what she did.
3The most important thing for us is that all of this stuff, and all of this technology, are only tools to achieve the cinematic experience and cinematic moment. For us, the conceptual aspect behind it and the theoretical aspect of what we were trying to convey was more important. All of the technology was in service of that.
4They ask if I'm happy and elated by 'Gravity's success. For me, it's like the fox who has been chased by hounds for four and a half years, and then the fox gets away. Is the fox happy? The fox is happy when he's frolicking with another fox, playing with the cubs in the meadow, mating, but when he escapes it's just relief. That's not happiness.
5[on directing 'Gravity'] There were times when it felt as though everything and everyone was conspiring against the process. But the thing about adversities is that they force you out of your comfort zone. The bad outcome is that you might drift into the void, but the other outcome is that you might gain amazing tools for growth and knowledge.
6[on 'Gravity'] The camera is a third astronaut, and that astronaut is the audience. The audience is floating in space, following these characters who are bonded by the loss of physics in zero gravity, floating and rolling and spinning. The idea is to immerse the audience so that your emotional experience is projected onto the screen in a primal way.
7If I would rescue one of my movies, it would be A Little Princess.
8There are fewer established rules in the way you tell a story for commercials than in features,it's a great little short story you get to play with.
9(Thoughts on the one film (or films) that made him want to become a filmmaker and why): There was no epiphany from one film. There were a few that stood out over the years. I was 8 when I saw Bicycle Thieves (1948), and it was the first black-and-white film I had ever seen. It triggered my curiosity to start seeing European cinema. When I was 7, I saw The Making of 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' (1970). Hearing George Roy Hill talk about all the choices he made, I knew that directing movies was what I wanted to do. I remember seeing Death and Venice 40 times one year, and then switching my allegiance to Godard after seeing Masculine/Feminine! I knew early on that I was a nerd and that films were my refuge. Those first few minutes before the lights went off, and you're alone in the theater waiting, were really pleasurable. Whether it was Steve McQueen, the coolest guy in cinema, to Robert Altman's strange and wonderful 3 Women (1977), I saw hundreds of films before I ever picked up a camera. I believe I took something away from each one.
10When you work with kids, people tell you to be very delicate, but that's the last thing you should do with kids. They feel patronized if you're like that. They just want you to be normal.
11When people see some depth you never intended that's really cool, you just put on a face and say "Oh, yeah, that was deep". What are you going to say? I'm just a moron with luck?
12Most of cinema nowadays is about shooting a lot and then figuring it out in the cutting room, rather than seeing your film it the head and see what's in your head and not shoot what you have already envisioned in your head.
13The only reason you make a movie is not to make or set out to do a good or a bad movie, it's just to see what you learn for the next one.
14I believe that human beings are born first and given passports later. I'm really thankful for my journey. And it's a journey I didn't design.
15What's the point of being an Australian guy traveling through India if you are going to go to India to meet other Australians?
