And some days ago I was watching cartoons with my little cousin. He was thrilling watching “Special Agent Oso”. The cartoon didn’t keep my attention more than one minute, but it did a sentence that “Oso” repeated every time he had to solve a problem: “Sounds like a plan!”.

Not sure, if it was this sentence, or if he was the Oso “oso-meness” but I decided to make a plan myself. In less than three months, it’s gonna be my birthday and I’d love to be on time with some video projects that I have shot this year and haven’t published. These videos are some projects aside my goal of establishing Chinchilla Films as Film Company in my country, Colombia. However, these are videos that I’d love to share with you outside following Chinchilla, because we had so much fun when we did each of them.

So, I made a list like someone who’s following a plan of the videos that I’d be publishing for the next three months, so you guys can follow whether I’m able to complete my plan or not:

1. First video, is a mini-shortfilm that I did in a workshop with wonderful iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami, who visited my country for the first time this year.

2. A video that we shot on the colombian mountains with fellow filmmakers Winnie Cheung and Christopher Paz. It’s based on the “Magical Passes” by hispanic writer Carlos Castaneda. Starring: Or Illan.

3. And finally, after a year we will release the documentary “Pajarito Pinta’o”, shot last year in NYC and following the life of colombian dancer Daniel Fetecua.

Yes, definitely sound like a plan!

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 ; )

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.

Color Script Test: Last Part

Muchas de las pruebas que uno hace antes de definir cómo va a verse la escena que sale en pantalla se quedan detrás del telón. Como este color script y secuencia para la última parte del video, en la que Maya corre a través de un laberinto bastante simbólico y alusivo a muchas de los signos que nos señalan como inmigrantes o tercermundistas, hasta que al final descubrimos que es un laberinto de palabras. Sin embargo, antes de llegar a lo que ustedes más adelante verán en el video, habíamos pensado la secuencia que está arriba.

Much of the things that you do behind a project never come to light. Like this one. It was the first color test and ideas for the last part of the video but at the end we only kept the flags and the labyrinth. However, I really enjoy doing this first tests and that is why I publish them here.

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.
