* Opus 25 No.10 “Night Island”
Director – Salvador Maldonado
Venezuelan animator-director Salvador studied Animation at the prestigious National Film & Television School in 2002 where he made his graduation film
“Metempsychosis of Objects”. After graduating from the NFTS Salvador worked as a Music Video Director using a wide variety of animations and different techniques. Since then Salvador worked on several Independent Animation projects, involving “Dance and projection”, “Documentary and Animation” for the BBC, and “Fine Art and Documentary”. He has been dubbed ‘a Salvador Dali for the 21st Century’ by Future Sound of London.
A passenger ship is struggling in stormy seas, a girl watches on. She sees her friend, the ship’s cat, get washed over board, and jumps after him. She washes up on the shore of a desert island, and is guided to the centre of the island by a mythic beast- half giraffe half cat. All the animals of the island, which start out as fish, but transform into all manner of creatures, are migrating there too. They find a trapped flying machine, the girl and the mythic beast have to free it from the grasps of the other animals, the girl breaks free on the flying machine which takes her back to the safety of the ship, she has to leave her mythic beast at the mercy of the other animals.
Approx Length: 5’03”
Technique: Hand drawn and After effects animation
I helped out on this a few months back over at breakthru films, just doing a bit of AfterEffects again, not released yet I dont think but working with Salvador and the rest of the team was a really great experience, look out for it when it comes out!

Literally finished this last night, i think this could be a possible side character in the Action Gents miniseries, I've got the project all set up ready to animate so i should have some rough tests soon to see what the puppet can actually do, also i've got some concept stuff i still have to scan in so those will be up in the coming weeks...a bit about pengwin. He's quite dopey and seemingly nonchalant about life, a lot of stuff passes him by but somehow he's become quite the businessman, although don't let the briefcase fool you, its full of a wide variety of fish not documents, he walks/swims/catches the bus to get around and doesnt really like the cold all that much...he may have a family but whether we ever see them is a different story, moves quite slowly is never really in a hurry, the monocle is just for show really, he thinks he fits in better with it.
Me and andrew might also be working on a bird related project where he will almost certainly pop up in aswell so keep a look out for that....drews blog is drew-robinson.blogspot.com i think.

Animatic and final TV intro for 'Mentes Inquietas' a spanish childrens TV show designed to educate and entertain children about science and history.
Animatic and final animation were built in AfterFX using puppets and elements created in photoshop. This was a team project between me and another student (see Tricky E on blog list), we did all parts of the Intro from storyboarding to pupoet rigging to final animation and camera moves, effects etc.
