Latin American Experimental Animation Favorites

For those of you who missed the Latin American Experimental Animation screening at Mini Microcinema yesterday, here are a bunch of my personal favorites from the show.



Overall the tone of the show was creepy, a little dilapidated or decaying, a little scary, but with genuinely beautiful moments.

Luis- Diluvio Animacion (Chile)

Luis is the 2nd short video of the series “Lucía, Luis y el lobo” (”Lucía, Luis and the Wolf”), it is a follow-up to the short video Lucía. The video was shot frame by frame with a digital photo camera. Materials: charcoal, dirt, flowers, found objects and cardboard.

Aedes- Quique Rivera (Puerto Rico) 

(Adult themes)

"Aedes" is a cyclic animation that explores the relationship between various small objects: a syringe needle, a bullet, and money.

Violence, drug dependance and ambition are as transmissible as a disease on a mosquito bite.



Lucia- Diluvio Animacion (Chile)

Lucía is the 1st short video of the 2-part series “Lucía, Luis y el lobo” (”Lucía, Luis and the Wolf”). The video was shot frame by frame with a digital photo camera. Materials: charcoal, dirt, flowers, found objects and cardboard.

SiSiSISiSISiSiSiSiSiSi- Juan Camilo Gonzalez (Colombia/USA)

The never-ceasing repetition of polite gestures. A micro-universe is created in 4 sets of 11 pieces of paper with hand drawn animated cycles.


Immersed- Soledad Aguila (Chile)

A mysterious portrait of the beauty in decaying of natural wild life.

It was good seeing some familiar faces and meeting new people! If you were there, what did you think? Or what do you think of these?

A model at your beck and call- Updated

Posemaniacs- I went to Christina Wald's class at NKU last week and had a nice time- we were talking about drawing and gesture drawing and one of the students mentioned this website- I checked it out and it looks pretty useful.

There are timed poses that you can use to practice gesture drawing at home, and the figures are flayed so you can see their musculature. Also you are able to rotate the figure as needed to understand better why certain things look the way they do-  and enable or disable a grid overlaying the image. Very cool!

Do you have any drawing reference sites that you like to use?

PIXELovely- this site has a timed setting as well as the option to choose nude or clothed figures, and it also has a section on animals!  The site is also working on getting enough donated to start a section based on practicing hands and feet, which would be great as well.
