Research Interests

In the past few years I have focused my research in new short forms of video making: the Moving Postcards. Moving Postcards are short videos that could represent a space, an atmosphere, an action, a behavior. They are multimedia between photography and video. They work on the fragment as a module of meaning.

A Moving Postcard relates to video making as a postcard relates to letter writing. It is a moving snapshot of a certain situation. It is the Twitter of video making.

The goal of my research is to produce an innovative documentary about Doha, Qatar and its relation with the Gulf Area. A documentary done with fragments. A documentary that is done not only for the screen, but that could take advantage of innovative interaction design platform and take the shape of an exhibition or a product, connecting the video content to physical objects, allowing and encouraging the audience to build personal sequences of fragments and to choose the timing of the vision.
