Dust

A Sci-Fi, fantasy inspired by anime and classic horror, Dust is set in a harsh and unpredictable natural environment where people have isolated themselves in an ancient city behind a massive wall. A socially marginalized tracker teams up with a black-market merchant to save the society that has rejected his way of life.

This project would not have been possible without the generous support of the Kickstarter community.

“If each company derives from an alchemy between people and techniques, the foundry of characters, whose heart is the engraving department, is an extraordinary example of skills and unequalled aesthetic sensitivity, which can be found in the documentary in the figure of Giuseppe Brachino, who was the head of the engraving department of the Nebiolo Company from Turin. He shows the creation of a punch, from which movable types derived, repeating the same gestures of Francesco Griffo who engraved the round and italic types of Aldus Manutius in Venice, five centuries ago”.
-Enrico Tallone

“Se ogni azienda è frutto di un alchemico insieme di uomini e di tecniche, la fonderia di caratteri, di cui il reparto incisori è il cuore, è un miracoloso nido di capacità e di sensibilità estetiche incomparabili, incarnate nel documentario da Giuseppe Brachino, già capo incisore della Società Nebiolo di Torino, che mostra la creazione di un punzone, da cui derivano i caratteri mobili, ripetendo gli stessi gesti di Francesco Griffo che cinque secoli or sono incise a Venezia i tipi tondi e corsivi di Aldo Manuzio.”
