A few months ago I decided I wanted to make a series of films about illustrated journaling. Not a how-to, step-by-step sort of thing but films that capture the adventure of drawing, the discovery, the spirit, the fun. I hope they will inspire you to make drawings (and films, if you want) and to keep an illustrated journal as a regular part of your everyday lives.
My 17 year-old son, Jack Tea, has joined me in this project and together we have worked through lots of technical obstacles to make films that look as good as we can make them on no budget. Our inspiration comes from the Cooking Channel, from Etsy's vlog, and from too many decades of loving movies.

A cat wakes up surrounded by water and must learn to survive.
This has been my passion project for the last year an a half. It started as vague ideas of a cat, ocean and overcoming fear. Then through numerous battles with the script it shaped up to something similar you can see now. After seven drafts I felt that it was ready to start storyboarding, but the film kept evolving all the way until the sound mix was done. I kept learning about filmmaking everyday, going through all of the different processes.
I chose the cat as the main character mainly to save time with exposition, because people know that generally cats are afraid of water. So I could just jump right into action. Plus cat is a fairly small creature and the ocean seems even bigger to him. And of course cats are much easier to draw than humans.
The film’s music is by my friend Bertrams Pauls Purviš?is who helped a great deal to tell the story the way it was intended. Music had a lot of to convey in very little time and it came out much better than I could’ve ever expected.
I’ve been delaying the release for quite some time, because as I learned by making it, a lot of mistakes made earlier when I didn’t have the experience had to be remade from scratch. I’m glad it’s finally done and I can show it to the world.

The Ritson Gap is a magical place - one of the first highline sites opened in France.
Overlooking the town of Annecy, the site makes for a highly aesthetic location. I didn’t need any further convincing to film the girls’ trip. Ingrid and Jelena warned me - "no other guys allowed on their mini expedition...!"
This filming was proudly supported by columbia.com & tifosioptics.fr thanks guys for trusting Jelena and Ingrid !
I hope you will be inspired and send a line one day.

This video is about addictions, mainly to technology, but it’s open to various interpretations.
Years ago the idea behind technology was to give people more free time from work and give us a better life. So nowadays, with the possibility for the majority of people to have access to electronics and hi tech, is it true that we have more spare time and a better quality of life? Or have we become addicted to the technology that surrounds us everyday and it has suck us into it? But humans get addicted really easily to a lot of things in life and this video is also a metaphor about addictions in general, about being manipulated without even realizing it or without reacting.
This is an audio/visual project where sound and images were developed synchronically from the beginning and where one was guide to the other and vice-versa until final completion.
In order to do this, for director Giovanni Bucci was very important to be involved with writing the track together with sound designer/music producer Marco Morano.
The team came up with the concept and started researching music and visuals that would suit the mood and atmosphere they wanted for the video, experimenting with sound, graphic styles and techniques.
To produce this project many different disciplines and elements were used: green screen, stop motion animation, filming with macro, editing, motion graphics, visual effects, styling, make up, sound design.

"Return" is an attempt to lead the audience through emotions and feelings of a man who has lost everything, who has lost the very awareness of himself and the world surrounding him. His life turned into a black and white movie and all he had left were his memories and burning desire to go back in time.
Rich and entailing atmosphere of the film is soaked with great love and respect for legendary science fiction writers such as Ray Bradbury and Robert Sheckley. Simple plot is filled with enormous quantity of symbols and allusions, detailed analysis of which will give an attentive viewer a lot of food for thought. The film does not imply any particular moral and is open for interpretation. Each person will find something that resonates with their own experiences.
The film was shot on a digital camera and had zero budget. Because light plays key role in the composition, it required a lot of extra special attention. All scenes were shot using the only light source - the Sun. Light was directed through the set via a complicated system of mirrors.
Soundtrack for the film was composed by a brilliant Spanish composer Alex Conrado, famous for his work with Pedro Almodovar himself. Conrado was able to capture the mood of the film and amplified it with his amazing music. Hope that film "Return" will take a special place in your hearts.

Even though they’d never met the couple in person, two of Carter’s Instagram friends in Portland, Branden Harvey and his friend Colin Cabalka, decided to take Carter and Brooke’s visit to the next level and surprise them with an engagement party. When Carter and Brooke arrived back from Ecola State Park, they were greeted with music, balloons and a whole lot of love.

A Tribute to BLADE RUNNER
An experimental film in tribute to Ridley Scott's legendary futuristic film “Blade Runner” (1982).
Created by extracting 167,819 frames from 'Blade Runner's final cut version, then assembling all these images to obtain one gigantic image of colossal dimensions : a square of approximately 60,000 pixels on one side alone, 3.5 gigapixels. A virtual camera was then placed above this big picture which creates an illusion, because contrary to appearances, there is only one image. It is in fact the relative movement of the virtual camera flying over this massive image that creates the animated film, a kind of "zootrope effect", like a film in front of a projector.
The whole concept echoes one of the signature scenes from the film where "Deckard" (Harrison Ford) analyzes a photograph via voice recognition software.

When opened, Hala Stulecia was the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world. With a diameter of 65m it was home to the largest dome built since the Pantheon in Rome eighteen centuries earlier.
The piece proposed for the Centennial Hall of Wroclaw is based around the notion of timelessness in architecture, and the idea of what future has meant throughout the 20th century.
Taking the 1910’s as a starting point (the dome was erected in 1913), historical and artistic references were used to reveal the architecture of the space.
By using references such as Fritz Lang’s Metropolis or the utopian projects of Archigram to confront the different visions of the future at different times, Romain Tardy and Thomas Vaquié were interested in trying to create a vision of a future with no precise time reference. A timeless future.

When opened, Hala Stulecia was the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world. With a diameter of 65m it was home to the largest dome built since the Pantheon in Rome eighteen centuries earlier. The Centennial Hall was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006. Taking the 1910’s as a starting point (the dome was erected in 1913), historical and artistic references were used to reveal the architecture of the space, its timeless and, more surprisingly, very modern dimension.
A deliberately minimalist visual aesthetic allowed to highlight the very architecture of Hala Stulecia’s dome and re-affirm its place at the core of the piece.

At the age of seventeen, I made an independent feature-length film called Oceania.
With the help of friends and family, we filmed in the San Francisco Bay Area on a budget less than $4,000.
I learned about cinematography and editing on-the-spot over many long nights and weekends.
We used a volunteer cast and crew and lots of donated equipment and help.
The film finally hit the big screen at the 2008 Cinequest Film Festival, closing with a sold-out audience.
Oceania has since been released for free under a Creative Commons license.

Synopse: Three German provincials are searching for hollywood. So they take the most American values, they can picture: an absurdly vast car, full of fastfood, bottles of oil and camera equipment on the way to California via Route 66. That they never find Hollywood is not the only surprise - on their quest for the American cliches they face unplanned incidents. A documentary drama somewhere between Jackass and Michael Moore, between gloating and satire
