Fallas 2014

 Last weekend I went to my city to enjoy the Fallas. Highly interesting for those who love character design and animation. I am so lucky and pround to have this great art party in my city.

For those who dont know the Fallas is a traditional celebration held in commemoration of Saint Joseph in the city of Valencia, in Spain. The term Falles refers to both the celebration and the monuments created during the celebration. A number of towns in the Valencian Community have similar celebrations inspired by the original one in Valencia.

Mortadelo & Filemon at Cartoon Media.

Almost all European broadcasters and major media investment groups attend the Cartoon Forum each year to get a sneak preview of the latest animation projects for television and pick the future hits.

Created in 1990 with the support of the MEDIA Programme, Cartoon Forum has dynamised European animation by creating a true network of transborder cooperation and by restoring confidence in the relationship between producers and broadcasters.
The results are considerable: European animation has become the leader on its own territory, the number of productions has dramatically increased and export sales are the best of any in the European audiovisual sector.

Mission Implausible, movie presentation at Cartoon Media.

Here you can see one frame of our latest Ilion  movie!

On their quest to find the whereabouts of Jimmy, a complicated thug who, given his IQ, isn't by far the brightest light on the Christmas tree, Agents Mortadelo and Filemon are tasked to use all of their skills to never ever solve anything, and to unleash mayhem and chaos wherever they go. This is the perfect storm in the making, especially when you have a teeny tiny atomic bomb dangling from a helicopter that at any given moment can go BOOM.
This is a nutty detective adventure that truly reflects the spirit of the hilarious cartoon universe created by the Genious Francisco Ibañez.

El monólogo animado de Mario.

Curioso experimento que no ha quedado nada mal, y eso que la idea de hacer un monólogo animado es de lo más arriesgado.
La verdad es que nunca pense que se le fuera a sacar tanto partido al personaje que diseñé. Felicidades al equipo de Animum. ¡Que buen trabajo!

Mario, un actor 3D de talento no reconocido, trabaja como doble de acción en las películas y series de animación más conocidas y exitosas de todos los tiempos. En su actuación, Mario nos hablará de su vida profesional, y nos contará al detalle cómo fue su trabajo como doble de escenas de riesgo para los papeles de la madre de Bambi, o del Jorobado de Notre Dame. Pero Mario Animum, entre bambalinas, durante sus años de carrera ha descubierto también cuál es la verdadera vida oculta que se esconde detrás de estos inocentes personajes. Lo más revelador de su relato serán los inconfesables secretos de la vida íntima de Heidi, o Scooby Doo y sus amigos, la Sirenita... entre otros muchos. A estos personajes ya les conocemos en pantalla, pero, ¿qué hacen en su vida privada? ¿Somos conscientes de cómo sacian sus necesidades más básicas? Toda una emocionante exposición sobre la vida de un doble de acción en pelis de animación.

3D extravaganza on the comic book property. Our next Ilion project!

 Warner Buys Spanish Rights for Javier Fesser's 'Mortadelo and Filemon'

The highly-anticipated animated film is based upon the comic book of the same name, which already spawned two blockbuster live-action features.


MADRID - Warner Bros. Pictures Spain bought Spanish rights for the upcoming 3D comic feature film Mortadelo and Filemon, helmed by cult director Javier Fesser.
After box office successes with live-action Mortadelo and Filemon films, production houses Zeta Cinema and Peliculas Pendelton have opted for what they call a 10-million euro "3D extravaganza" on the comic book property.
The film, now in pre-production, is written by Fesser (Camino) along with Cristobal Ruiz and Claro Garcia.
Fesser's previous Mortadelo and Filemon venture--the 2003 Mortadelo and Filemon: The Great Adventure-- grossed more than 22 million euros with more than five million ticket sales.
