To make his mother happy Raphael obtained a Masters Degree in Digital Arts. His graduation film landed him a job at Buck NY. After working at Hornet NY and Glassworks London he became a freelance Director and is ever since working for different studios throughout. Raphael specializes in design driven film projects.
As an experimenter he is guided by a process, but not married to a system. He is fluent across a variety of mediums from Stop Motion over 3D animation to Live Action, and often finds himself combining these to fit the respective story at hands. The process behind his work is to fully immerse himself into his projects. Concept to post production Raphael takes a full hands on approach. He is now based in London.
