Short Drawer 2007

Yet another great news for Marco: the film is included in the Short Drawer 2007 DVD!!!

"The Shorts Drawer 2007 is a collection of 22 short movies and 2 trailers for an upcoming project. This DVD represents the best of the animations linked from the 3dtotal homepage in 2007. We accepted submissions from artists all over the world and also hand-picked some of our favourites for inclusion on the DVD. The Shorts Drawer is an annual project for us to showcase the best animations from each year, in DVD quality video and audio in one place and for you to keep for years to come".


One month ago I moved from Milan to London. I've been through flat-hunting and other interesting stuff that kept me very busy!
Meanwhile Marco has been included in the AnimationMentor fall 2007 showreel which is great!

My friends Alessandro Chizzolini and Nicola Danese opened their own websites with some Marco's contents as well as some other awesome works... take a look!

And I submitted the film to the Aniboom awards... you can vote if you want!
