After graduating Graphic design I have had created animations with a little bit of story behind it, but was until January 2015 that I released my very first animated short "The little turtle" - this short was created with a background of graphic design and self taught knowledge on filming I acquire during months of webinars, on-line classes, books reading and more. Then I released "Miau..." based on a real story- in my first year at CalArts in April 2017 and then "What really matters" - April 2018. among some others that are shorter.
