IL BAR SOTTO IL MAREBooktrailer
This is a booktrailer for the book "Il Bar Sotto il Mare" (The Bar Under the Sea) by Stefano Benni.
I tried to recreate the atmosphere of the book, taking inspiration from a book's cover illustration of an existing one (Feltrinelli editor - illustration by Giovanni Mullazzani).

I mixed vector images, created with Adobe Illustrator, with photographic images: all subsequently edited in Adobe Photoshop with brushes and textures.
I animated with Adobe After Effects, adding music and sound effects.

A man with no name, for reasons unknown, as he wandered in the imaginary port of Brigantes, meets an old man (wearing a gardenia in his buttonhole), who plunges into the sea, disappearing. The man, in an attempt to stop him, follows him, and finds himself in an incredible bar, a fantastic place a meeting of twenty-three mysterious patrons, each of which engages in one night to tell a story
I have slightly revised it in order to better represent the story.
