Session 7. DESTINO HOLLYWOOD (AND BEYOND)
Duration: 57 min
Adept for spotting the most talented artists, Disney called on Salvador Dali in the 1940s to draw up a film that would be made much later, Destino
(2003). Over the years big studios abroad have counted on Spanish artists and other professionals in various animation sectors: Amblimation (Raul Garcia), Disney (Carlos Baena, Lorelai Bove), Pixar (Rodrigo Blaas, Charlie Ramos), DreamWorks (Grangel Studio, Victor Vinyals) and Aardman (Pascual Perez). We’ve also assembled the personal work of Guillermo Garia Carsi, the creator of Pocoyo
, the innovative series watched by millions of little ones all over the world; the first short that Charlie Ramos made at the time when working at Pixar was only a dream to him; a silly fake commercial by Adria Garcia and Victor Maldonado (now at the head of Headless Studio), after Nocturna
(2007); Enrique Gato’s first short where his eponymous hero came to life, Tadeo Jones (2004); as well as How to Cope With Death (2002) by Ignacio Ferraras, who gained the recognition he needed to make his first feature, Wrinkles
(2011), based on the graphic novel by Paco Roca.
