How we made the video…
We made this video without a storyboard. I told the animators the whole idea about the project and I gave them different scenes (drawings) that I used in the project “Scenes to avoid nightmares” as paper-cuts. Each animator had to animate the scenes however they wanted and without seeing each other’s work.
I designed the background with all the previous forests I had used and I gave to the sound artist commissioned an idea about what kind of sound ambient I would like. When everybody finished, I worked with my main animator, Tomás Silva, and we solved the puzzle. Using the program After Effects, we first put together the background and the sound, and then using the sound as a guide we decided on the order of the scenes. We used randomness and it works like a dream.

Este video nace como una continuación de “Escenas para evitar las pesadillas” en cuanto investigación sobre las imágenes simbólicas y arquetípicas acerca de los sueños. Este es un mosaico invadido por más de veinte escenas animadas, un video realizado de manera colaborativa con un equipo de artistas colombianos. Sin un guión gráfico, los animadores trabajaron sobre escenas (dibujos) sin conocer los resultados visuales producidos por los otros. El diseño del fondo es una sumatoria de los bosques que han sido concebidos en obras anteriores.

En esta pieza, se hizo uso de la aleatoriedad lo que hace que funcione como un sueño
