A few people asked me questions with regards to how I made this piece. It's very technical, so I figured it'd be easiest to explain with a quick video tutorial on my process - and how I actually do use both traditional and digital in equal parts. And, as I have said before - thank you so, so, so much for your support, especially on my original work.

I felt pretty pathetic about doing this and than posting it, but still. On Walter and Luca's wake, me and decided that these two should have had their own pompous, tearjerker, happy ending, in one of their various AU's, and well, yeah... I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE IT, I'M JUST FANGIRLING SO HARD RIGHT NOW. That was my dream Of course all this marriage thing referrs to Eve's universe, so that they can be a real family, with a daughter and married parents. GWAAHHH, I'M DYING
Now, let's talk about the animation x°D This took me three days, and I feel pretty proud about it Also, I wanted something to expel all the stress accumulated in these days of exams, and what's better than some loveydovey animations?
Again, I can't get credits for the audio, which is from the Italian episodes of Brothers and Sisters, Kevin and Scotty's marriage <//3 I just love the voices actors o3o

The first Short Movie I finished ! I have tons of projects that never went into complete filming/editing. I'm glad I finally finished one !
I wish to thank the entire crew:
Charlène, who helped me to find the actor and the pianist, who supported me during all preparation and who had a few good ideas during the shooting. Thomas and Sami, who live two hours from Bordeaux by train and are very talented. ~Mathi09 who did a great job, and helped me a lot during the editing. Mary who is a great camera operator. Jeremy who had to travel three hours by train to come. He did a great job too. Laurine, a magic girl I consult a lot when it comes to music. And of course Fred, my long time best friend and roommate who had to support me during preparation, production and postproduction, who did a wonderful job as a co-director.
I also wish to thank my teachers in my art school who helped me about the location, and tips for the piano construction. Some of my classmates who supported me as well. And my parents, of course.

This is one of the three animations, that I have made for one theatre play in Slovakia. It was great experience. They are all from Chaplin environment. These animations were projected behind the actors. This is the larges one. It represented Chaplin´s way to hollywood when he have got his firts job there.
The train model was provided by my friend Sqelx (I made a material and rig), a airplane model was made by Peter Beno and all the rest was made by me. The music was made by Anton Popovic and sound by Igor Baar.
There it is, my most recent film, finished in 2010 as a graduation project in university. It's done some mileage so far (it was screened in approximately forty festivals around the world), but its festival life is nearing its end so I'm posting it online now!

This is the story of a little boy who wasn't able to sleep and felt that something weird was happening out of his room, so he decides to take a look, but soon he would realize that he isn't home, maybe fall asleep wasn't so difficult.
