My first work in Prague (in a film festival). Thank you all who worked on this movie, and thank you to Kino Praha for making my first days in Prague a blast.

So much talent in the festival, and a great intercultural exchange, people from so many different places. Awesome movies came out.

The main idea is very simple.

The story is about the journey of an  individual, in this case portrayed by a frog, who, certain day, is  walking on the street when he is surprised by a needed choice of his own  fate.

He is given three possible paths to choose: the going back path,  the following his normal routine path and the risking and taking a walk  on the unknown, looking for other dimensions, beings and conceptions of  the world.

By choosing the unknown, the frog enters the main part of the  narrative, some kind of a “epic journey” worth of a COMICs hero.

The  unknown path (portrayed by the stairs) is a hard and windy path, and our  hero, as he goes up, has visions (or hallucinations) about the meaning  of life.

It’s almost as if this “going up the stairs” represents a  spiritual and human ascension where the individual comprehends and  experiences feelings and conceptions that until then, had never  occurred.

Thank you to my sister Joana for helping and "lending the house".           

You can check it here, on a dedicated site for this work :


Stop motion tests made at TOCA 2010. Photos/work made by me and Gil Delindro. Editing and sound made by myself (extreme cornetto salsa). It is something I would like to further develop in the future...



Latest video I've made with some old footage I found of random places. Also used some stop motion ( at the begining ).
Sound made by myself - extreme cornetto salsa.

There is a spelling error on "Siting". It was meant to be "Sitting". I'm sorry yes?


First video work I made at FBAUP (2007 / 2008 - first year of fine arts).
