Graphics and Animation for this commercial of "Telefónica del Sur". I received the footages of the actors doing upon green screen and references of the graphics and design of the background. Two weeks for being done. It is a nice result finally. (by CBRA Films)

HAVAS MEDIA - Christmas Card 2012

This is the Christmas Card for Havas Media which I developed during November 2012. It is a nice work which takes the cute character of Rudolph and turns him in a real star of comedy. Same character of 2011, different situation.


I was commisioned to develop the Opening titles of "No Passport" a new TV program. It will contain mainly turistical information about the beauty and atractives of the different regions of Chile. I developed a concept which looks like a painting but it is builded up with many different elements found out on internet. It is a quick snap of the most atractive of every region.

This of waiting for being animated...

I went to the Stop Motion studio to practice and to get relaxed. I notice that the figure had some loose joints on the leg parts. So I created a short situation about a model who is waiting for the animator for... BEING ANIMATED!! Those late animators...

Evening in the StopMotion Studio

Wednesday 07th of February was my first day in the StopMotion studio at MediaCity. Here are two tests I did within 5 hours I worked on. I hope I can make it better with some more practice. Technically, the set up was: Canon EOS 500D and StopMotion Pro 7.5. The armature belongs to the University as well. Enjoy them!

Christmas Card 2011 - Havas Digital

I was commisioned to develop the Christmas Card 2011 for Havas Digital a multinational advertising agency. The agency wanted something nice and funny to send by email to its employees working in all the offices around the world. Despite the concept was clear we had to be very careful with the treatment of the idea because the people whi would receive it come from everywhere and Christmas doesn't mean the same for everyone.

This is why I decided to start with a main character who represents this period but unrelated with any religious paradigm. Then, my own version of Rudolph the reindeer was born. So I started sketching him and playing along with this idea...

As soon as I got the definitive character I created the final versions of him. This process allowed me to start with the modelling process in 3D Maya which took me a couple of weeks to have it done.

After Modelling process I faced the challenge of give my chracater the texture I wanted and the needed light. I had an old puppet which helps me as a reference for the texture of Rudolph. I wanted the audience to feel this was an imaginary character like a real puppet who had turned into life suddenly.
For the Overall light I needed something bright enough to see the character and his actions but that same light should allow the nose light to bright enough, being a point of interest as well because is relevant along the story.
I tried different materials and I received some good advices (thanks Claudio Lopez).
Here are some tests of that process.

Last step before ending was the eyes finding. It was very hard to determine the final shape of them because every pair of eyes changed a bit Rudolph's personality. I did finally understand that "Eyes are windows of our soul"...

Finally these are the final versions of the Animatic and the Card totally finished with final music, sound and lught effects and logos.
I do really hope you like it!
Merry Christmas!

COMA_acting reference

While I was struggling with the animation I recorded some pieces of video which were quite useful as a reference over the animation process. The sensation is very weird. Actually I feel like a part of me is already inside that story and the location.

COMA_music development

Music was a very important element in COMA. I wanted to portrait an odd atmosphere, which is basically the Alfreda's sensations while she is in this complex health state.
I worked with the chilean musician JORGE PUIG from the Royal College of Music in London. He is a very talented artist. We linked immediately about the emotions and sensations of the story: what we wanted to convey and what we wanted the audience to feel.
Jorge composed a very nice and delicate music played by a "celesta" (as the main instrument) mixed with no-traditional ways to play instrument. For instance some hits on the body of the piano, some noises produce by wet fingers over the edge, etc. Everything in order to carry our audience to an imaginary space and an unconscious time.
Here you can see some pictures of our music and mix session in the studio. That day we recorded the voices of the granddaughter (thanks my dear Domi!) and the Son (by myself).
The result is a nice composition. Very successful.
