“Trompo” or “Spinning Top” (in English) is a nostalgic look at a beloved childhood toy. The film is silent - totally handmade, using only a razorblade, a quarter, a toothbrush, a wire brush, bleach, black 16mm film leader, and sharpies. Parts are optically printed and hand processed. Each frame and each scratch is painstakingly hand painted to blend together to create the illusion of an actual “Trompo”.
