    In this video, I obviously wanted to work with the beautiful textures of the rocks and tried to add some dynamic and kinetic effects to enhance the sequences. That's why a large amount of shots are done mixing stop motion and motion design.
    Solid Gold is another exploration of a theme I am fond of, the search of the beauty in the mundane. I like to think about the idea that the casting of this video is made of ancient majestic characters from all around the world, it's also a tribute to nature, with small bits of our planet dancing together during three minutes.
