BANDERA NO MUNDO!

Al parecer a Maya nadie le ha cerrado fronteras ni impedido la entrada en el resto del mundo. Por el contrario, este año Bandera fue invitado al festival internacional de animación Cortoons en Italia, al festival MUVICA en Ecuador, hizo parte de una muestra de videoclips animados organizada por ASIFA y las universidades Javeriana y Jorge Tadeo y hoy me siento muy orgulloso de anunciar que Bandera estará presente en Anima Mundi 2011, uno de los festivales de animación más importantes de latinoamerica y que se llevará acabo en Julio en Rio de Janeiro y São Paulo, Brasil.

Gracias totales a todos las manos que hicieron el proyecto, y esperamos seguir coleccionando sellos en el pasaporte de Mayita ; )

BANDERA (FLAG): OFFICIAL VIDEOCLIP FOR ATERCIOPELADOS

Les presento BANDERA del disco RÍO de Aterciopelados. Una aclaración: el indigena que camina se llama Maya y es un hombrecito, para los que piensan que porque lleva faldita es una niña : ) GOZO PODEROSO:

Maya, an immigrant begins a trip throughout the world. In this trip, many barriers will interfere in his way. However his will and determination will let him pass through this obstacles and boarders to finally claim the place that belongs to him, like to any human being of this world.

Flag: Color Script

Aquí está uno de mis color script favoritos. Esto sucede en el intermedio 2 de la canción cuando Andrea canta:

¿Quién me limita

este mi planeta

si soy tercermundista 

y empacó mis maletas?

This is the color test for the second part of the video. We chose a palette that was very colorful but controlled at the same time. For this sequence in particular the difficulty was the change on the illumination and the color transition, before and after the torch got into the scene.

Bandera’s color palette

This was the color script I did for the different “Mayas” during his journey. At the beginning I change Maya’s color dress like a hundred of times until I get with the green. After that, the challenge was to adjust the green for each of the transformations that happens to Maya during his travel.

GLOBO – VIDEO

Este fue el primer videoclip en animación que hicimos con Diego Peñuela y yo. Pasamos dos meses pintando todo el día, escuchando nuestra música favorita por  épocas y sobretodo, experimentando con el óleo a mano! Es un camello! En intermedios nos inspirábamos mirando el trabajo del ruso Alexander Petrov, uno de los grandes maestros de la animación con oléo a mano. El hombre trabaja como un “ruso” literalmente. Al final de los dos intensos meses en GLOBO, pequeño pero muy divertido trabajo, entendimos porque Petrov tiene que entrar en el hospital durante 15 días cada vez a inyectarse suero cada vez que termina un trabajo. EnjoY!!!

Ballon englobado

Globo is a very small story about a Balloon fish who never went out of his cave. It is made completly with oleum and using hands, even in the smallest details. Me and my partner, Diego Peñuela who is an illustrator himself, always love this tecnique. Specially because we are big fans of Alexsandr Petrov’s work. Originally the idea was to made a fairy tale with Ballom and a ballerina fish that make him out of the cave. But we didn’t have time enough, so the dancer fish never saw the light. Although we end up doing the first sentence of the script: This is the story of a fish balloom that never went out of his cave. Because the complex of the technique we spent two months to create this clip as fluid as possible, specially because we had to control the form of the circle body and the spines had to move in the same direction one after another. Really funny!
