This year, "Pause Fest" invited us to make a movie based on "Future" and since we love to eat, we chose "The Food of the Future" as our take on that theme. We are convinced that in the future food will be yummy, beautiful, funny and healthy! Let's taste the future!

This is a small animation i did as an exercise to experiment and explore all the graphical possibilities of representing the idea of the SPHERE, always thinking in searching Gestalt and form. Its all done in 3d, but i was more interested in the graphical interest, flatten the surfaces, and only two colors, why more.The most difficult was to achieve the transitions between the different type of representation of the sphere, the morphing and metamorphosing.
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.
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!

The setting was already intriguing. A Greek from Pontus, living in Athens is a luthier of some of the best Spanish guitars. His name is Vassilis and he is not only an accomplished luthier but also a charming human. We spend 3 days with him in his small and packed lab in Athens, where we learned a lot, laughed a lot and in general had a great time. The end result combined with the music of Edstard left everyone more than satisfied.
Pedazos de madera, amor, esmero, celo, conocimiento y 299 horas de trabajo, concentradas en una película de algo más de 3 minutos.
La serie “The Art of Making” pretende mostrar y promocionar a gente de nuestros días que, superando el fatalismo y el pesimismo del espíritu contemporáneo, se atreven, con pasión e imaginación, a seguir soñando y creando. Estos amantes del conocimiento y de la emoción, intentan combinar la organización y la precisión de la ciencia con la elegancia, la sutileza y el ingenio del arte. Su oferta es de un valor incalculable y se lo agradecemos profundamente.
