Since 2010, he has been developing special frame-by-frame animation techniques for his experimental films, which are characterized by an oscillation between abstract form and figurative representation, often creating a nebulous environment to be experienced by the viewer. His films have been screened and well received in several prestigious festivals such as the Edinburgh International Film Festival, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the Ann Arbor Film Festival, among others.
