ALEX FRIDERICI – Perestroika


Perhaps a lunatic is simply a minority of one.
George Orwell


I remember when I first saw this (can’t remember… Was it in 2003?) it looked like the state of the art in CGI. Now it looks an ordinary (very well done) job. Anyway, I haven’t managed to properly encode the clip I was about to post, so I’ve dug up this old one from the Archives. After all, this blog is about things that stick up in my head, for some reason.

Set in a dystopian alternate world (someone would label it as steampunk) the short movie is the tale of a man who set himself free from the estabilishment, but at a high price.

The movie is the work of Alexandrovich Friderici. He’s now working at CafeFX, doing visual effects on movies like Sky Captain and Sin City.

As you can read in the comments, Alex’s latest movie is Pan’s Labyrinth which won 7 Goya Awards, including Best Visual Effects, and gained six Oscar nominations. He was one of the lead animators.

Quando l’ho visto la prima volta (non ricordo… era il 2003?) mi era sembrato lo stato dell’arte della CGI. Adesso sembra un normale (ma molto ben fatto) lavoro. Comunque, non sono riuscito a preparare per bene la clip che volevo postare, quindi ho scavato questo dagli Archivi. Dopotutto questo blog è sulle cose che per una ragione o l’altra mi rimangono impresse.

Ambientato in un mondo distopico alternativo (qualcuno direbbe steampunk) il corto è la storia dio un uomo che si libera dallo estabilishment, ma pagando un prezzo davvero alto.

Il film è opera di Alexandrovich Friderici che adesso lavora presso CafeFX, realizzando effetti visivi per film come Sky Captain e Sin City.

Come potete leggere dai commenti, l’ultimo lavoro di Alex è Il labirinto del fauno che ha vinto 7 premi Goya, fra cui migliori effetti speciali, ed ottenuto sei nomination agli Oscar. Alex era uno degli animatori capo.

    Pan’s Labyrinth… I missed it when it when it was released. I hope in a good DVD!
    Thanks! I have to update this post ’cause the main link is dead, so I’ll add this too.
