Tinker Tank Workshop

The first week at Animation Sans Frontiers just edend and we had an amazing workshop with Tinker Tank.

Even if online through Zoom we managed to build controllers and personal video games: the outcome was very very great!

I programmed with Scratch a Mariachi song random player and build two controllers looking like a maraca and a little tamburine. When played they reproduce a snippet of music or liyric from Mariachi El Bronx’s songs. Play with it!!

Hope you enjoy it 🙂

Irise International

Together with the lovely Hélène Dedieu we partnered to make an art piece for Irise International to raise money to fight Period poverty.

This time of Covid made period poverty even worst and we needed to increase the spread of information around it.

The auction was on for 10 days and it got super well! We are very proud of it!

AR Filter

I finally made my first AR filter! It’s called Nothing We Say Film and it’s made to promote the film I’m working on now.

If you have time and fancy to, it would be lovely if you could take a picture of yourself with it and tag @nothing_we_say_film to support emotionally me and my film.

Hope to see load of lovely faces there!

Cheap Festival

Me and my lovely sister joined to make some posters for the new edition of the Cheap Festival in Bologna.

We just had the great news that one of our posters will be printed and become part of the festival in Via Irnerio!

Let’s all go to cheer next to it!!!!

With our poster we tried to share the idea of helping each other in this tricky situation we are living.

The sentence comes from a movement in Colombia in which people who can are invited to donate what they have for people who doesn’t have money even for food. The piece of fabric is a simble that is used (it’s supposed to be red) hang outside the windows of those families who have no food and need help.

if you have something spare donate it

if you lack of anything take it
