Handmade is an independent short film shot  under rain in 2006 in Sao Paulo. The post production was made in Barcelona. The movie was directed by Denis Kamioka aka CISMA a Brazilian animation director, Handmade is his first short film using live action. This surrealistic short movie combined with animation has a very well encoded message, but basically it talks about the beginning and the end of a relationship using a lot of symbols.
