Chasing Stars

Chasing Stars is Laura’s graduation film for the Master in Animation at MIVC – AKV St. Joost in the Netherlands.

Chasing Stars tells the magic journey of a young girl, who’s looking for her home and own place in the world. The journey takes place in the Arctic and the main character is helped by a very special friend, a Beluga whale.

The story is a fantastical and poetic representation of the inner journey and the struggles that each of us has to undertake in order to find his/her own place in the world.

Laura directed, animated and designed the whole film.
The original soundtrack was composed by the pianist and musician Ottavia Marini.
