This series was born from the need to communicate something intimate through my means alone.
Animation, writing, music, voiceover, all managed by me, with my limitations, trying to involve the viewer in a personal glimpse.
Vertebrae thus develops into individual short films, each representing a part of the spine, in an exploration of myself and my way of confronting myself.
Atlas is the first of the vertebrae, which supports the skull. It is the highest part of the column, still the beginning of the path, still in a cerebral space and facing outwards. In fact I begin by addressing beauty, as an essential element from which to start, beauty as involvement, as a movement of discovery and consequent vertigo. It is the initial kinetic thrust, which allows you to abandon yourself gradually.

Axis is the second vertebra from the top, representing the pivot upon which the Atlas rotates. For this reason, this short film represents an axis and therefore a direction, an intent, a posture, a possible will, a more personal impulse.

"Wow, what a journey. Love the use of the eyes/face as a device to dive into the story. The mix of spatial morphing elements and fluid camera work kept me waiting for the unexpected." - BUCK
