"I call them april babies, cause they fools" (Lil Wayne)

With April Babies, I expanded my practice into screenwriting. In my pursuit of exploring the agency of everyday objects, I chose a property master as protagonist. Rather than serving as a template for a feature film, the screenplay has generated both filmic and photographic byproducts, such as screen tests with actors and documents of costume fittings and shooting locations. A first output is "Clarissa. Screen Test, Interview, Costume Fittings", comprised of a digital video (11') and 33 photographs in their original format (6x7mm), printed on reversal film.
