This is a project that I started with my dear friends: singer songwriter Graciela Maria, and illustrator / painter Maki Shimizu.

The final recordings featured cello arrangements from Simon Houghton....

Take Berlin “Motion” Music Video

What do you do when almost all parameters are preset by the artist (locations, styling, performance style, choreography etc.)? You work on the style of presenting the footage.

Robots Dont Sleep ‘Don’t Wake Me’ Video

The briefing for this video was a simple one: make it pretty, sunny, cast two beautiful women that will appeal to other ladies, play a bit with the teenage ‘friends/maybe more’ dynamic, but avoid any overtly sexual content – all in all a tough pickle. We shot the piece in the dead of the winter,...

It all started with a pitch against Partizan. Pol Ponsarnau and I were pretty sure that we wouldn’t be able to beat their proposal which, we were told at the time, was favored by both the band and the label. I thought that our only chance of knocking them out was to go for something...
