Director Statement

I seek to make work that is sincere but doesn’t take itself too seriously. My work ranges from abstract to absurd to comedic and is all rather intimate and homemade.


Melissa Lavabre grew up in a small town in the South of France and then pursued a degree in filmmaking in Los Angeles. Her work is infused by the land she grew up in and has ranged in medium from photography, to music, to filmmaking and painting. She identifies as an outsider artist.

Director, writer: Melissa Lavabre

Pebbles Underground is focused on showcasing and promoting experimental, avant-garde, underground, and no-to-low budget projects by artist-humans from all over the world. Absurd, uncanny, witty, humorous, slow-video – all are welcomed, and loved. Pebbles Underground is an independent project not funded by any government or corporation, and we intend to keep it that way. Main source of funding is personal donations from humans organizing the project, who are artists themselves, and the main drive of the project is formed by the energy and involvement of the organizers, and the public.
