Stretch of Water

A multi-layered narrative film which creates a playful relationship between varied themes – social media, romantic expectations, ecological issues and the existential search for power and control over one’s destiny.

  • I am a Romanian Animation Director an Animator.

    Being a child in an East European communist country back in the 1980s was a unique media and visual experience, one marked by a scarcity that understandably made the rare encounter with animation truly vibrant. Fortunately and ironically enough, this was the beginning of my long term addiction to the genre.

    As I moved from being an Animator to working as an Animation Director, my focus shifted from mastering technique to creating plot, character and a meaningfully immersive experience.
