SYNOPSIS

IMAGO,

Short Film made in Traditional Handrawn Animation.          

Animated short film that evokes the beauty and power of the light itself, as a means for the apprehension of the image. Explains the link between the vision of an alchemist and the power of the particle, which creates an aesthetic judgment of a body.

Encased in a small, dark space, through the help of a tiny hole. Wanting to capture the soul in its vision and natural.

PROCESS

IMAGO

Started as a project based on my professional life experience, experimenting and working with the pinhole photography, as an assistant in a Professional Film Print Studio. Facinated on the subject, I wanted to explain this beautiful and laborious process to capture the beauty of an image, of how you can do it in your living room, or even with a box or a can.

Competing with the age of technology, the process continues to be hidden but  occupying a place in the art society and never to be forgotten as one of the process that started the world of the photography and the invention of the camera.

The main objective was to represent a close dark room, with just a tiny light going inside, creating a world of shadows, as a result a magical atmosphere.
