An animation studio is always proud of being shortlisted with a project for the Goya Awards, but having two projects preselected is an amazing feeling, it represents the pride and elation of all those who have been part of the production of these shortfilms.
This year we are shortlisted with our animated shorts El Fin (The End) and Use the coconut, and we can´t be happier.
The End, is a story that talks about true and everlasting love, that stay on in the chest of two lovers avoiding the pass of time and the lost of memory. It is the story of Pierre and Amparo, who, holding their hands had walked thru life with crossing its joys and vicissitudes.
In addition to its deep and dramatic content, The End is the result of creative research and technical experimentation, which leads to the final look, where color stains are alive and fluctuate on the image as if it were watercolor.
The languid and subtle color transports to Pierre´s point of view, where his memory plays tricks, and the world is becoming blurry and imprecise. Every moment of the film and every technical decision, are at the service of the emotional expression of the characters, which has been a real narrative challenge.
In a complete different order; we have been preselected with to Use the Coconut, a colorful, vibrant and exotic short film, which behind the funny performance of its characters, seeks to raise awareness about the importance of innovation and creativity in today’s society.
In this short film Honky & Tonk, will face an elusive fish, which has been able to avoid Honky´s feeding intentions. But Tonk, a vivacious and cunning monkey can solve, using the coconut, all kind of obstacles.
We kindly invite you to discover both projects shortlisted for the Goya´s Awards 2013, at the following links, and hope you enjoy the work of an exceptional artistic and technical team that has work on both films.
