2019 Festival Poster
Carles Porta has worked out xtures and materials in an image that celebrates stop motion animation.
This year the Animac theme will be stop motion, so it was important to make a poster in volume. I firstt hought of Gulliver, surrounded by tiny people, unconscious on the beach, I also thought of the Golem, then a group portrait. I imagined a futuristic city made out of recycled material, a superhero watching twilight sitting on the edge of a roof, and at one point a sand dune covered the city, an amorphous being with shell eyes. But none of this had just worked: on a black velvet cloth, I started to combine the remains of all these failed projects; first some characters that had no story to explain, a ghost, a papagueno, a vampire dragée and a ballerina. Finally and definitely, on the study table appeared the body and limbs of a being made of many different materials; he was so over-excited by all the possibilities of being, that his head exploded. "
