JUST A GUY
JUST A GUY is an animated documentary short film about love. Three women share glimpses of their affection, attraction and relationship with Richard Ramirez: A serial killer and rapist they contacted after he was convicted in the 80s. Through their perspective, we revisit exchanged letters and emotions that are as obsessive as they are hauntingly familiar.

A small, intimate world of 5 siblings living in a block of flats full of fairy-tales, trips to balcony, cherry seeds and impatient awaiting of a next family member. The story from the children’s perspective becomes a story of closeness and this stage of growing-up when mum is the centre of world.

A man lives his obsolete life of a highlander, merged with his karstic environment. The days go by, the seasons, and the years. And slowly, an odd, metal neighbour is settling down vis-a-vis. Thus, our hero’s space and centuries-old landscape have changed, but his life remained the same. The two worlds meet but do not touch…

WORK FOR HIM
Four adolescent social media influencers have one goal: to glorify the word of God. With just one post, they reach thousands of people and use Instagram to spread their Christian values and beliefs. Using short suggestions such as “Give It All to Jesus” and appropriate hashtags like #Jesusfrees, they want to show “the truth” to the online community.
