Molins also works in music videos and advertisement. Usually, she collaborates with the filmmaker Lyona. Together they have made more than a hundred pieces and their narrative and aesthetics show a consolidated personal trademark.

Moreover, Molins works in documentary series for television and hybrid special shows in which performing arts and fiction are blended. Good examples of this are the documentary series ”La Gran Il·lusió” (2019), directed by Mai Balaguer, and the special Christmas tv-show ”Nit de Nits” (2020) and “Premis El Temps de les Arts” (2021-2022), directed by Lluís Danés.
Her versatility, together with her eagerness for capturing instants and for telling stories is what drives her in all kinds of projects and experiences.
