Through the tale of a bizarre dream, an enigmatic exploration of the dream world and the elements that can populate it.

Director Bio

I was born in the 1960s, and I have always been in love with the technique of animation, especially stop-motion. This technique sums up all the things I love to do and have studied for, drawing, graphics, building props, and observing the movement of things (in nature and its representation).

But I am still learning as a self-taught how to make animation! I started in the late 1970s with Super8, continued with 16-bit computers and video digitizers in the 1980s, and then returned to stop-motion in the early 2000s with computers finally becoming more powerful and animation software. But I do it mostly for fun. I make mostly animated short films, unhooked from any commercial rules, on my own and with a very low budget – and through these, I look for answers about myself: who I am, what I’m doing on this earth, where I’m going.

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.
