Energie! will be screened at Animatu in Beja [Portugal] in october.
Red Bull asked me to do a short film for them. A quick look at my bank account made the decision pretty easy for me. It’s for a series of shorts called X13. Watch this space for further updates on my first commercial enterprise.
Here‘s a short interview I did with Indie Express about that film with the high voltage discharges.
I have had my share of high voltage shocks from messing around with my tesla coil but this is extreme.
Energie! was awarded Best of the Abstract Panorama Program at the Melbourne Int. Animation Festival.
I wrote about my new film Dromosphere for Projections. I’ve been working on this film for quite a while now and will soon upload some sketches to the sketches/WIP category. I hope to be able to finish it sometime this year. Anyway, here’s the link.
I added a new category to show some sketches of films I made and also sketches and experiments of work in progress that might or might not lead to a new film. Also I like to give more detailed technical explanations of the stuff I’m doing. As my work is often, at least to a certain amount, process driven it seems only logical to make the process more transparent. The first film featured is Gestalt. I posted 12 small clips from very early sketches to ones that more resemble the finished film.
Marco Mancuso from Digicult put a wrap-up of the little italy tour he organized on his website. There’s also a link to some photos of the screening at the O’Artoteca in Milan. Check it out here. Thanks again to Marco and Sara for the great time I had.
I made an intro for ‘Energie!’ for the broadcast on canal+. they actually put it after the film. Check it out here
