Martina Leithe ColorioUsually people ask me why I don’t have a website, to show all my VFX stuffs or general works. This is more or less a blog. I need a space for my creations, to be obliged to go on with them. I’ve worked many times with people and projects I didn’t like at all, and where I couldn’t be myself. Here I want to be honest, so if someone want to work with me, he have to know who I really am. I think people usually miss honesty, mostly on job places. If we wouldn’t be obliged to wear masks imposed by our unhuman society, we would be less stressed out.
Formal: Master degree in Digital Entertainment and VFX, and Postgraduate in Anthropology and Folklore. I’ve joint various projects of indipendent italian filmakers and worked in bigger production companies for istitutional videos, music videos and commercials.

When I was a child, dreaming about my future job, I always thought that my ideal job was to be able to share with the others all the incredible stuffs that were real in my mind. I’m still looking for this. Or at least the small me is still following the quest.
I’ve spent years trying to figure out why I had so many interests and no attitude to specialize in a single job. Sometimes I’ve heard people speaking about multi-talented persons, but I consider myself more as an amateur. Maybe a “sublime amateur”, in some of my areas of interest.
I understood that the main fuel of my life is beauty, but beauty is not an absolute idea, and my perception of beauty for the most could appear uncanny. And in a certain way, the Notes area is a place to collect my creations and to speak about what I find beautiful every day.
I’m a easy bored person – it’s melancholy fault – that’s why I always look for what I love. I can’t rest in a world of ugliness…
I’m a non native english speaker, so please be patient with my errors…
Ameonna is a nickname I’ve been using for years, since I read about this kind of Yokai. The name means “The woman of rain”, she’s a rain bringer Spirit and own both positive and negative traits. It’s thought that in ancient times she was a Goddess of rain, worshipped in rural societies, then mixed with the tradition of White Ladies, malevolent and haunting Spirits. I love rain, and most of the important events of my life were under the rain. She’s the one who look at you from the rain, the enigmatic and unexpected presence.
