ALBERTO VAZQUEZ MASTERCLASS AT ECA

The Creative Process. From Comic to Animation

Friday 26 January, Edinburgh College of Art, West Court Theatre, 2PM

 

Unique opportunity to get an insider perspective on the work of Alberto Vazquez, currently one of Europe’s hottest animators. After being nominated to European Film Awards for his first feature animated film “Psiconautas: The Forgotten Children” Cinemaattic collective dedicate a focus into his previous work, including a featured exhibition at Summerhall, a full retrospective on his artistic influences as part of this year’s Manipulate Festival and the Scottish premiere of Psiconautas.

In this masterclass at Edinburgh College of Art, Alberto will show the journey and creative process from the first comic strips to his first animation feature film.

With his distinctive artistic style and dark humour, Alberto’s work articulates an innovative approach to translating the visual techniques and devices from his original comics into animated film. Vazquez and his team share a passion for creating striking work for adult audiences which dares, both through narrative structures and stylistic choices, to consistently challenge filmmaking orthodoxy.

Alberto will show two of his short films as part of the masterclass. He will engage with the audience to keep an open discussion with attendees into specific issues of the animation development process.
