Kites and Butterflies

A fantasy music video, placed in two opposite but connected worlds, the story of a journey between them, to find your true self and where you belong to.

Filmed in Venice, Italy, at Carnival time, and in a cold winter day in the city of Sibiu, Romania, the video relies on the interconnection of scenes to build a unique dreamworld, using some special visual effects.

Director Statement

A search for all that is magical. Rendering reality into something else, finding meaning in this transfiguration and the belief that there exists more than the visible.

Art is the impossibility of casting a magic spell.
