ART DIRECTION

After a significant experience as Writer, VO Director and Script Supervisor in advertising, I fell in love with the life on set, and since then I’ve been working and gaining more and more experience as Art director, Set Decorator, and Prop Master, bringing the director’s vision to life and building the worlds where the magic will happen.

But when it comes to my stop motion short films, I bring my own vision to life, my way. Increasingly, most of the set items and the props are made from scratch, using various materials, and/or from turning everyday items, waste products, hardware and craft supplies into something else. I experiment, try, fail, succeed, enjoying every step of the creative process.
