For the last 8 years I have been focusing my time on designing and directing animation.

Overtime the creative and technical challenges changed and the work morphed, re-defining my methods and creating new interests.

I plan to share some of the process behind the work we do at Nervo, how the ideas materialize in a concise way, but still keeping the creative process very spontaneous.
