I’m excited to share this short film with you today. It is an excellent example of what it can be achieved when a team of creative people decide to join forces.
Alma is Rodrigo Blaas’ first short film as a director. Originally from Spain, Rodrigo Blaas has worked in animation for more than ten years, in Spain and in the United States.
Seizing the possibility of directing his first independent short film, Rodrigo Blaas asked some of the best artists in their field to take part in this independent project: French animator Bolhem Bouchiba, character designer Carlos Grangel and Sergio Pablos, ArtDirector Alfonso Blaas, music composer Mastretta and sound designer Tom Myers.
Some young people wonder how they could make it into the film business as animators. Creating your own high quality animation is the perfect way. It’s hard work, but it is worth it. It worked for Alfonso Blass. He will be co-directing a feature film based on Alma with Guillermo del Toro.
