Double Boom at FMK Festival!

Check out our super happy and awkward little faces while presenting for the first time I Mostri non Esistono in front of a real audience at the FMK International Short Film Festival in Pordenone! We won the Friuladria scouting talent award so we will be back next year with a new exciting project!

Aaaand what a great surprise for us to find out the next day we also won the audience award for best short in the whole festival! Here’s the link to the facebook page of the festival.

It was such an exciting moment and we had a great time at the festival in this beautiful location, we also would like to thank Tommaso Lessio, Sara Pavan and the Cinemazero crew for believing in our film! See you next year!


Last but not least: we also graduated!!

Wohoo! Just some real intense three days in a row!

Thank you so much to our tutors Marco Zanoni, Ramona Mismetti and Guido Orlandi for guiding us in this intricated jungle which is the animation production, to all our classmates who kept the spirits up, and to Civica Scuola di Cinema Luchino Visconti which made all of this possible!

Last Days

We made it! We survived the shoot!

Here’s some behind the scenes from our last days!

Our animation kit: facial expressions, hands, eyelids and eyebrows

Shooting details like a boss

Tommaso just learned he isn’t getting paid for his work.

Mrs. Teacher ❤

How we all feel about now!

Actual footage of Ilaria throwing Nicola across the room.

Just kidding the pictures won’t be released until the court case is over.

Tommaso discovering Giovanni is getting paid for his efforts. Our director had to get involved.

We will miss our tidy work-space

Giants doing geometry!

Here’s some awkward pictures of us holding things!

Four weeks of shooting for a three minute film! I think we earned this… 🦄


We are now half way through shooting and we don’t know if we should have a victory dance or curl up in a ball and cry ourselves to sleep.. but anyways: here we are, full of hopes and wonders, together with our beloved DOPs Priyan and Otilia, the night before we started production!
(Please notice how we all look fresh and well rested)

Once the set up for lights and reflectors is ready, it’s finally time for adventures!

Stay tuned for new crunchy pictures from our backstage!
