Welcome to my site

My name is Nicolas Lasaigues

I'm a digital composer who generally writes suspence, horror or sci-fi stories.
I'm also movie sommelier and amateur astronomer


I was born in 1977, the same year the rings of Uranus are discovered, Star Wars premieres, the first test flight of the space shuttle (The Enterprise) is made, the Voyager and the Voyager 2 were launched and Elvis is gone.

I'm in Buenos Aires (Argentina).

I write because I enjoy it, because the are no limits in words; they mean absolute freedom for me.
I also write because I love to read: I always have a book with me.

I started to write on blogger in 2003. "Recorriendo el Laberinto" (Walking the labyrinth) was my first blog,
and it had a renovation in 2008, when I published my first book.

For the moment, I only write short stories. I'm trying to write a novel, but that is still a work in progress.
As soon as I have something I can share I will announce it with great fanfare, obviously.


I got my first recognition in 2006: an Honorable Mention for the story "Constance" in the
competition "Primo M. Belletti" of the Argentinian Society of Writers of Villa Maria, in Cordoba, Argentina.
An anthology was published compiling a selection of stories presented in that contest, called "Gold and Silver tales".

In 2008 I hit the jackpot with the story "How" in the competition organized by the publishing house Andronico.
An anthology compiling all the finalist was edited named "Walking between dreams".
Another part of the award was the publication of a personal book, so "Walking the Labyrinth" sees the light.
The name of the book is the same as the name of the blog, as all the stories included in the book were born there.

In 2011, I participate in the literary magazine Prosofagos with an article about Film and literature in Argentina.

On December of 2011 I got the 2nd Honorable Mention for the story "The door" in the
XXV International "Continuity of the voices 2011" contest organized by the publishing house De los cuatro vientos.
Product of this competition, an anthology in two volumes was published, including text from all the participants.

On july 2013, the story "Elephant" was chosen to be published on the 1st number
of the magazine
CINE FANTASTICO Y BIZARRO.
Since then, I write news pieces, articles and interviews for them.

On October 2014, the story "Session" was chosen to be published
on the 4th number of the magazine PORTAL CIENCIA Y FICCION

On March 2015, the story "Sick" was selected to participate in the anthology
"The Ominus" (in homage to the writer H. P. Lovecraft) , organized by the publishing house Thelema.

On November 2016, the story "Surprise Dinner" was chosen to be published on the 9th number of the
independent magazine El triangulo de la merluza, issue dedicated to Horror.

On August 2017, the story "Choice" was chosen to be published on the 10th number of the
independent magazine El triangulo de la merluza.

That's all for the moment...

2deFaina is a family project to test and improve filming techniques.

On each short film, we include at least one technique that we have never used before... and see how it goes. :)

It all started goofing around in the backyard with a pretty basic camera (a miniDV and not the best one),
but the important thing was to have fun.

When we needed help, we asked to some friends to join us. In many cases, they added tons of value with their colaboration.
