1. Samantha was born in Australia from Greek parents. She decided to fulfil her dream of opening her own design firm in her homeland (Greece). Despite all the difficulties she faced during the transition, she kept her smile and her spirit up. She is now a well-accomplished designer, with collaborations both in Greece and abroad.

    When an idea materializes into paper and continues to magically transform into a deep red fabric, the only thing you can do is let go and follow your heart. We hope you enjoy it!

  3. This is where it all began. It was our first attempt to design and produce one of our ideas for a film. Having done the shooting, we were not happy with the result and so we had to scrap the initial idea and start all over. We experimented and improvised with the music, the editing and the graphics until we felt we had something. Having no expectations, we posted it on vimeo. The feedback was quick and overwhelming. People’s comments from around the world, gave us the motivation to continue with more films for the series.
