Reassemble

Click on the link below to see an excerpt in HD.

Reassemble is a 15 minute film loop that explores the aftermath of an accident or trauma on a body, how the body has to find new connections and avoid damaged parts to reassemble itself.
The result is a re-wired and changed individual. The film plays with questions about identity and our sense of self.

This piece combines live action with animation and photography and it is one of several projects born out of the collaboration with the dancer and choreographer Darren Ellis.

NickToons - History of Animation

History of Animation is a short film with the NickToons pixel characters. We took the flagship characters of the channel and traveled with them from the first animated films (Windsor McCay, Lotte Reiniger) through abstract animation (Viking Eggeling, Hans Richter) to more mainstream classics (UPA, Chuck Jones at Warner Brothers) all the way to the present day.

Unreal Sidewalk Cartoon

This short film was part of the show Unreal-Sidewalk Cartoon by the pianist Bernardo Sassetti. Bernardo had been working on this project for a long time, a true labour of love, he photographed and designed the project. I came into it closer to the concert dates to put together and animate, what turned out to be, a 45 minute film made from his text and intricate photo-montages.
