Hyona has done research in lab to develop ionic separating machine that will be ground to the molecular units. And she thinks that she is the molecule which moves around in its own orbits until the death. Feeling the sense of isolation, she finally completes the machine. Importing the mood of the sentence which comes from the novel written by Théophile Gautier in 19c, she enters to the machine and ground to the molecule.

Dear Ms. Maupin

Un film di Max Miecchi Rigorista e portiere sono uno di fronte all'altro. Il pallone viene posizionato con cura dalle mani del rigorista. Sta per essere battuto il calcio di rigore decisivo. I ricordi, le emozioni e i momenti importanti di una vita iniziano ad affiorare, portando ad un epilogo che sorprenderà lo spettatore. The penalty kicker and the goal keeper are opposite each other. The ball is positioned carefully by the penalty kicker. He’s about to kick the last penalty goal. The memories, emotions, moments and important decisions made in his life come to mind, bringing the story to an unexpected end.

The last penalty

I keep looking into myself if Madrid is my city. I came here more than 7 years ago from a place 9546 km. far away from here. With the daylight I feel foreigner no matter nobody can tell unless I speak.

My World

A late night bus-station. In the darkness. In the cold. An absurd meeting. An absurd life. Is it how it is all going to end? "What if the eternity is just a bathroom full of spiders?" A. P. Chekhov.

Terminal station

Surrealism. Speculation on the split mind phenomenon. Two lines of fortune. Dream and life. Good and evil. All of them are in parallel. The girl walks through the forest, across the field, among the fabulous arts of building. She cries and laughs, looks for something, gets scared and runs away. Does she get into a trap or move towards the sun?

Kikimora. Laughing dummy

Art or family? Vacation or thoughts? Woman or papers? A man work on his script and he doesnt have time even to talk with wife.


Sometimes in life during one burn sigarette life can change on the contrar.

Non-finished sigarette

If you don't have protection, you can no survive. If you don't have roof, you don't have place for sleep, if you are on the roof, you can fall easily with whole your dreams.

Girl without roof.

"In the middle of the night, between the lights and shadows of a rich house, a cold-eyed killer consumes their crimes. After caught in his sleep a boy and a woman, sits in the living room of the house where he awaits the arrival of his real target. Preceded by the barrel of his shotgun, an old and mighty man bursts into the room ready to strike, but finds himself unprepared for the truth that hides the identity of the murderer." This is the synopsis of "Killer's Sight", my new short film made with no budget, born from the ashes of the much more ambitious and at the moment economically unfeasible "A Drink to Die". A tribute to American noir, always one of the film genres that intrigue me most, "Killer's Sight" inherits some of the essential characteristics of the genre: so here's a story lived almost entirely through the eyes of the protagonist (except for the final sequence), characters stuck in unwanted situations, a plot that only solves part of the questions, a photography that surrounds in the shadows environments and characters. Even the title can be seen as a small tribute to Stanley Kubrick's "Killer's Kiss". Shot mostly with makeshift equipment (lighting has been made with the lamps from the living room and so on) I tried as much as possible to remain faithful to my original vision, but having finally rethink several scenes during shooting and cut other during the editing process. Several choices have had to collision with practical problems and this has led to some decisions: for example the desire to shoot in low light which hit certain predetermined points, made me opt for more than one occasion for the presence of a video noise more pronounced , rather than having a more accentuated light. Despite having taken more time than expected, I wanted to make some real main titles that accompany the first trumpet solo of "Summertime" by George Gershwin (in the version sung by Louis Armstrong and Ella Firtzgerald), song that is the background to the short film: the trumpet soloist has always had a special relationship in the nusical accompaniment of the noir genre, as can testify, for example, the scores by Jerry Goldsmith for the legendary Roman Polanski's "Chinatown" and the excellent Curtis Hanson’s "L.A. Confidential". Everything was shot in 1080p 25fps with a Canon HV30 with Raynox lenses (a wide angle DCR-6600PRO and a telephoto DCR-1541PRO) using a tripod Velbon DV-7000, while post-production was done using Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 for editing and Adobe After Effects CS6 for visual effects, on a computer based on a Intel Core i7-2630QM processor. During shooting was taken into account that, in post-production, the final aspect ratio would have been 2.35:1, obtained by cutting a captured original image in 1.77:1. As for the sound, while having available an external microphone Rode NTG-2, the lack of an external support on which record the audio separately in order to obtain a satisfactory sound, has prompted me to make a new audio mix on the original track, using sampled sound effects separately. To accommodate the different cut, editing were also made on the soundtrack. The decision to summon two members of my family for the main roles is to be found in the precise intention to have mature and lived faces, that were able to fit in with the light and the atmosphere selected. The final result is dirty, rough, and obviously improvable below different points of view and in this sense I look forward to my next project.
