838 is a music-video taking place in its own dark & obscure Eastern European world, a constant escape from oneself in a schizophrenic nightmare. Triggered by a sudden encounter on a lonely road, the protagonist’s grasp of reality starts to fall apart — at fast pace.


Ioan Gavriel was born in Bern in 1993 as the son of a Romanian violinist and a Swiss architect. He spent his childhood and youth in Vienna, Austria. Through his own animated films and animated work, he discovered his passion for film early on. At the age of 15 he shot the first film-funded short film with professional actors.
