Do androids dream of…

…Mechanical trees?




I finished this thing I have been editing since forever so here’s some stills (that don’t reveal much). It’s about a traditional dance called Tsakonikos, that is performed in the Peloponnese. The dancers’ line twists and turns in a snakelike manner, forming different paths. Supposedly this has mythological roots and refers to either the snake of Apollo or the effort of Theseus to navigate Mino’s labyrinth.

A few pics from footage shot during the summer

The footage is from a workshop which was organised in the outdoor courtyard of the archaeological museum of Thessaloniki. The people who participated -mostly archaeology students- got to create clay vases and plates following the ancient Greek method. As per usual, I was given a slightly surreal brief which included the direction ‘ try to make it look ancient’. What they meant was ‘ try not to shoot faces, watches, rings or anything contemporary’. That’s about the best I could manage.

The Price of Charlie

A short film I directed while in London. Shot by Andrew Alderslade, an amazing director of photography. My sister actually believed me when I told her we flew to Colombia to shoot this.
