To make a man is the final project of the Master of Animation program of AKV|StJoost.
The short follow the path of a boy from a magical and serene world to a harsh reality.
To make a man started with my personal need to express and represent the major events in my life as a process that eventually lead to the person that I am. At the beginning it was a far more fact-based narration, but the more I worked with it, the more I realized that I could tell a story in a less realistic way. In the final result, I represented roughly twenty years of my life in a metaphorical way, trying to preserve at the same time the core of what really happened and its layering.
