1. A short film made only from still photos.

    Not really a short film... it was a test but I liked it, so I spent a few more hours (ok, a lot of hours!) to finish it...

    It was made by editing in Final Cut pro a series of still photos of the actor I took with a Nikon D70s.
    I used a lot of hand made paint textures, drops, ink brushed lines, etc. I also used some old stone wall textures.
    I composed every shot in Photoshop splitting footage in layers, drawing and pasting things like a kind of "collage" or patchwork.
    Later, I made a 3d composition in After Effects.
    Every layer was internally animated independently and later composed in a 3d environment in which I put lights and DoF (depth of field).
    The music and sound effects were made with Soundtrack and Apple loops.

    By the way, thanks for the comments!
    This site is really well done! Congrats to the staff!!!!!

    Synopsis (2) (Word Count: 122)

    This story is told by Betty, an elderly woman, embroidering on a quiet afternoon.
    When she was a child, during the Second World War, she had three invisible pets that she held with three strings. She knew they were invisible and the only way she could keep her imaginary friends close was to let never go of the strings.
    She carried them all day and night, until one night during an air raid she was forced to leave them behind, losing them. She looked for them everywhere. Time passed and Betty grew old with the sensation that something was always missing, until one day she realised that she has never lost them, because her imaginary friends had always been living inside her.
