I see video as a unique and very powerful art of form to capture and express feelings, memories and emotions. I enjoy creating visually interesting cohesive aesthetics. Moreover, I focus on referencing and I do it a lot to tell stories where no words are needed. The short films I create might be surreal, bizarre and colorful but dark and dramatic as well. The characters portrayed in my videos are usually beautiful and strong females. This fascination by women comes from a deep social research. I use this knowledge to make the human personality fit together in harmony with visuals, showing strong, but fragile emotions by using unconventional point of view.
