An adaptation of a Mexican legend, my graduation film “The Legend of the Bat” (Masters on Media – Animation- University of the West of England), tells a story of how we try to be “better” than the others, at all costs, instead of accepting ourselves as we are.
It’s been some years, but I find it still relevant as an example of my work and interests.
I quite enjoy the making-process. Writing, suffering, thinking up the characters, suffering, planning the production, keeping an eye on the calendar, more suffering, the actual animation… During my studies I was taught to appreciate the process of research and to document everything, so if you are ever curious to take a look at the storyboards, production and animation books, just let me know.
