For me the production designer is the one that makes that fantasy become real, believable and creates the world where the viewer gets drawn into and that it the reason why I love working in the film industry so much.
You could travel through different ages and epochs while being a production designer.
We have the unique opportunity to share stories that can enlighten minds and change perspectives.
My design is the translation of our emotional relation deep inside the story.
Access to the idea, the plot everytime has to be original, with the distinctive keywords, images, feelings.
My architectural background makes me very sensible in the “magical” process of film making transforming three dimensional architectural or urban space into two dimensional images of defined aesthetics.
I always remind myself that I am very blessed to be in such an exciting industry
I always go back to the history of arts, painting, architecture to have visual references of what I will need for a specific project.
I had never considered that I could combine my passion for storytelling and combine that with my love of creating fine and sculptural arts.
I work in silence for a long time before I say anything at all. Just watching and listening.
It is a very special task, helping to deliver emotions, telling a story and sharing something meaningful.
My imagination of the story, its characters and plot points is the main channel through which I get inspiration to design a film using the various design element tools at hand to visually narrate my ideas.

I was very young when I saw 101 Dalmatians and told my parents I wanted to work with this when I grew up.

For me, a film it's a collective work of art and the combination's works of all departments it's like a symphony and should always be.
I consider genius artists and directors - Peter Greenway, Roy Anderson and Wes Anderson as some of the distinguished artists. Their works have remarkable visual solution
It's not working anymore, it has become life... An extension of living and learning and self evolution.
Sometimes i find the perfect object for a character on a flea market, which releases as a key object the whole character, set or even the look of the film.
I love the challenges I am faced daily in this career and since I started I can't picture myself being happy doing anything else.
