I love working with children and teenagers. You can call it media-education, film-making or just play. To me it’s bringing people through a creative experience, where we can have fun exploring ideas, learning things and expressing ourselves.

I often choose to shoot with a simple webcam, because a low-tech profile pushes you to develop better ideas. I also like leaving the message that every body can be creative and have fun, no matter how much money you have.
