"Manucinema" refers to an idea of hand-made cinema based on the combination of an inner concept and a faithful confrontation with the environment. Some contents are very structured stories that I concretize by recycling, animating and recording available materials in the moment (stop-motion, collage, animated sculpture, mixed techniques). However, most of my works come out by observing and moulding the materials I discover in my daily life. The video camera helps me to investigate and build a special point of view of my subject, and to record the results. There is no aesthetic proposal in Manucinema, rather, the aesthetic emerges as a revealed knowledge from the experience. A strong interest in music led me to appreciate the long, enormous tradition of improvisation practices, mostly connected with strong social, politic and religious necessities of people to communicate with each other. Manucinema attempts to transfer these musical methods of improvisation into video making. I try not to be bound to a specific technological instrument or ready-made concept of image quality, but instead, attempt to find a more human way of approaching cinema. I believe that the practice of exploring and re-inventing reality (including imaginary, memories, inner visions) can be shared with all kinds of people and experimented within every environment and contribute to a society´s development.
