We were invited to present the only masterclass from Chile at the Chilemonos Animation Festival. So to make things harder for ourselves they invented an international competition for all latin american advertising creatives. The goal was to write a script about advertising practices using 2 of the 6 different characters provided.
The project started in London with few companies and artists invited to create a vision for the future mega developed city. The overall “Megatropolis” project didn’t make it to its final stage but the concept grew into this architectural utopia. “City in the sky” is a concept about an imaginary tranquil oasis above the mega developed and polluted city where one can escape from the everyday noise, stress and dirt. The concept is inspired by the Lotus flower which is known for its ability to emerge above the murky waters pure and clean.
3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films….. = a trip of a lifetime.
Two different but parallel lives. Two different lifestyles. A common interior feeling: the indifference for anything that happens in their own lives. The suffering of living not engaging and boring situations. But the rage hidden inside feeds the repressed wanting of turn upside-down their unbalanced existences. A willing for an interior revolution that can be turned into positive energy.
