Hey guys First, I wanted to tell you that I’m very sorry I haven’t been able to post anything else on the Making Of series. It will take me longer that I thought, but it will get done. The other news is that there’s been interest from Hollywood. Seems like all the effort is paying [...]
Call it an idea, story, concept. How you name it isn’t that relevant after all. The important thing is that you got it clear. To get there, there’s a few things you might want to know. To start over, you will probably need inspiration such as Books or Films. I’d advice you get LOTS of [...]
By popular demand, I’m writing a “Making Of, from A to Z” series. A lot of people have asked me what’s the path to make a 3D Animated Film. It gets a lot more interesting when you have the desire, but you don’t have the available resources to pay an expensive education. With no prior [...]
On Monday 20 I sent TPB team an email, a shot in the dark. When I had a reply saying that they liked it and I’d have a worldwide display on The Pirate Bay homepage, I pulled off my hair. I think its been a while since I’ve opened my eyes that wide. Now The [...]

That was a beautiful, inspiring, but very tough day for The Chase production. I really wasn’t expecting that at all.
If you are not as good at sketching as Mauro and, like me, you probably suck; you could always give a try to my little solution.
Very briefly, here’s what I do from the 3d program to the final frame in After Effects. Cool stuff. .
Since my budget was all my savings, and they were very little, I couldn’t afford to live in the big city for six months working full time on my project. Instead, I decided to go 780km to the south side, in the country of a small and beautiful place called Pucón. When its not summer, [...]
These are the 4 characters featured in The Chase. All of them were designed by Mauricio Galvez, the greatest artist I’ve ever met. Vincent The Bad Guy Thieves
