YOUTH


Shot on the go with an iPhone 8 Plus. I wanted to see how far you can take phone camera footage in postproduction. Captured at 120 frames per second which were then stretched to about twice that speed. Frame blending was added to compensate for the missing frames and to smooth out the motion.

All of the beige tones brightly lit up by the orange sun inspired me to try and make the sun really feel as key part of the film. I oversaturated everything and then applied plenty of glow.

As with my previous films, the music was composed especially for the clip and there is also another version where there are strings instead of flutes.

GALIA


With GALIA, the intention was to portray a woman which has no fear of death, one which suffers from Cotard’s Delusion – the main concept behind the featured garments, part of the F/W 2012 collection by Dinu Bodiciu.

The sound is what came first and it marked the foundation for laying out a logical order of shots that would match with the intensity of each piano note. The idea was to establish a perceivable connection between image and sound that would end up strengthening the theme of the film.

The film was shot in London after a number of weeks or preproduction and fine tuning of the concept and storyboards.

IRREVERENT


Flaws are regarded as the center focus and as decoration; underlined chromatically. The rough and smooth porcelain textures are used to give the user a complete guide of usage and a perfectly satisfactory experience.

‘please, take care not to get wet.’
