Synopsis: A 140 sec film based on a tweet that deals with eviction and mental health. #cake is the result of the #makescript project, a twitter campaign where I asked audiences for ideas and inspiration to make a film. I wanted to explore how to involve audiences at the beginning of the creative process. As a filmmaker and storyteller I fancied the idea of creating relevant meaningful content in 140 seconds. #cake was developed on twitter with the constrain of 140 characters, I wanted to bring this constrain to the production of the video.

Synopsis: Onyros is an organization that under the cover of a broadcasting company, presents a secret structure with one purpose only: to feed on the vital energy produced by people’s dreams. The energy extracted from dreams is the most powerful drug ever tested. Onyros takes it through some extractors, who are selected among the victims of the organization for their relational and seductive skills. Extractors ignore the existence of Onyros and are exclusively in touch with their referent. They act by inertia: they lure their potential victims, gain their trust and deprive them of their dreams through an extraction process which condenses these sources of vital energy into one single precious tear.
