‘Fabriqué en Chine’ (translated ‘Made In China’ in English) is a short documentary introducing Joe Farrugia, one of the two last shoemakers still active in Malta.
Joe has been in the business for over 40 years but he belongs to a generation of makers that are endangered by the worldwide profusion of ‘Made In China’ so he started a passive fight against extreme consumerism.

Louis Copeland & Sons and I collaborated on their fashion campaign video. It was filmed in Barcelona, Spain at the Olympic Swimming Pool of Montjuic with the idea to contrast the location with the outfits of the model. The entire video was filmed in one day and the editing took three days, between logging, editing, colour correcting/grading and also export three different versions with different CTAs.

Jean Cristian is a 24 years old Brazilian who arrived in Ireland with no English and a very simple dream: make his life and the life of his family better. In this portrait of the young musician, we question family relationships when living 9,500km away, self-motivation, the importance of role models in the life of a young man and of course, the importance of music in his life.

For most people, to dress every day is just a normal morning routine. For Lawson, this is much more than just wearing some materials on his body. He considers it the ‘reflection of his personality’.  When collaborating on this video, I wanted to know ‘the reason why he was doing what he does’ and I also wanted to discover the man behind the character. This video portrait is the result of our collaboration in order to create a compelling video with a cinematic touch.
