A light edition, today, in every sense of the word.

We’ll be told the tale of an elder couple who came to visit their old playground. A ride on the old merry-go-round let them revive their youth, literally.

An heart warming bit of traditional animation, somewhat reminding of the work of Bill Plympton.

Swing was realized by Esteban Azuela, a VFS (Vancouver Film School) student, using hand drawing, watercolors and the computer. The movie has just gained its first award for Best Animation In A Student Production at the 2D OR NOT 2D Animation Festival in Everett.

The sound has been recorded, edited and mixed in 5.1 by Andrew Senna and Iván Martínez, gaining 1st place at Audio Engeneering Society Convention held in San Francisco in October 2006. Music arranged and performed by José Antonio Tranquilino.

Un’edizione leggera, oggi, in tutti i sensi…

La storia è quella di un’anziana coppia che fa visita al vecchio parco giochi. Un giro sulla giostra, e i due coniugi rivivono la loro giovinezza, letteralmente!

Un commovente pezzo di animazione tradizionale, che in qualche modo ricorda l’opera di Bill Plympton.

Swing è stato realizzato da Esteban Azuela, studente di VFS (Vancouver Film School), usando disegni a mano, acquerello ed il computer. Il film si è appena guadagnato un riconoscimento come Best Animation In A Student Production al festival 2D OR NOT 2D di Everett.

Il suono è stato registrato, montato e mixato in 5.1 da Andrew Senna e Iván Martínez, arrivando al primo posto alla Audio Engeneering Society Convention tenutasi a San Francisco nell’ottobre 2006. Musica arrangiata ed eseguita da José Antonio Tranquilino.

    The contrast of the computer animation against the ink with the texture of the paper was really interesting. And I loved the idea of the old people turning into kids again on the merry-go-round. You know they don’t even allow merry-go-rounds at playgrounds any more? Lame.

    Uh… well, I can understand why. But yes, that’ pretty lame.
