Design Indaba 2006: Design. The New Economy

This was one of the first commercials I directed while at Masters & Savant. The commercial promoted the 2006 Design Indaba conference.

The visual language of the campaign was based on South African currency, communicating that design and creativity have the ability to become major players in our future economy. The story goes full circle, starting and ending with a pencil sketching an idea, showing different stages of how an idea can impact economy and create opportunities.

Make the economy scream – trailer

Have you ever thought why politicians and the media in your country are so thrilled about the shortage of toilet paper in Caracas? Why Venezuela is among the best countries for Bitcoin mining? Who controls the Instagram account that determines the daily exchange rate of the dollar in the black market? And is it really socialism that brought down to its knees the country with the biggest proven oil reserves in the world?

Make the economy scream, a new documentary film on Venezuela by Aris Chatzistefanou, had its world premiere on the 21st Thessaloniki International Documentary Festival and won the Youth Jury, Best film award.

With the help of well-known economists, journalists and politicians, the documentary explains the process of Venezuela’s economic collapse.

Make the economy scream is the fifth crowd-funding project of Moviementa Productions after the award winning documentaries Debtocracy, Catastroika, Fascism Inc and This Is Not A Coup. You can learn more and support our projects at

Fall of Europe

An animated infographic that details how what is commonly known as ‘the sovereign debt crisis’ in the Eurozone is in reality a class struggle event, in which the fixed exchange rate is used to shift the costs of the economy from capital to salary. The soundtrack is ‘Dark Tension’ by Stanko Beronja, which I found on Jamendo. Please visit for more on this project.
