Tuttodunpezzo is an animated theater play about a man that is all in one piece. Perfect. Pristine. Unaffected by his surroundings. One day he falls into a hole. Breaks in three. And his perception of life changes.
The movie is based on a story by Cristina Bellemo. It came to Andre back in January when the Italian publisher Topippitori invited him to illustrate a picturebook with it.
From the first moment the picturebook became the storyboard for what later became the animation. Most of it is stop motion with a few tweens in the middle and it took me a great part of 5 months to animate.
