After Said´s Journey, winner of over 40 international awards including a Goya for Best Animated Short Film in 2007, (you can watch it here), musician and animator Coke Riobóo decided it was time to take a turn off traditional clay animation and he started drawing with it instead of building puppets. That´s how he has spent the last three years, drawing with clay on underlit glass panels to tell this story with a unique style.
Noise of the World is made of nearly 8000 still images painstakingly drawn during three years, adding up to almost eleven minutes of animation. It tells the story of how Hector, a composer afflicted by an unusual illness that allows him to hear every noise in the world, tries to find a cure to his condition through music.
These last months, some of you have been able to watch the process and chat with Coke live on UStream during his long animation sessions in his Madrid studio. If you haven´t yet, click here to see some of the videos of past sessions or join us on the live broadcasts that we still have left until the film is finished -we enjoy working in good company.
Here's Coke with more information about the project.
Now, after all this work, we are almost done with the shooting of the last sequence of the film and about to start the postproduction process, and that´s where you come in.
Since the project started, we have been collaborating with amazingly talented artists and friends who have helped us free of charge. User t38, has been on board since the beginning, and it´s the company that will take care of image postproduction. The Lobby will create the sound design. Coke has also composed the soundtrack of the film, and we will record it with a small orchestra at studio Brazil. Alvaro Granados programmed our web page, the guys at Cirugia Gráfica have been kind enough to provide us with custom -and express!- graphics, and we´re deeply thankful for all the support and collaboration from the team at the International Market of Animation, Videogames and New Media 3D Wire.
We believe artists´ time is valuable. With your support, we´ll try to raise 6.000 euros to finish this film.
This will help us pay for:
- The musicians.
- The music recording studio.
- The audio design.
- The final audio mix.
- Image postproduction.
And if we reach 8.000 euros? We´ll be able to put together a travelling exhibition with a series of light boxes showcasing the original drawings used in the film.
What if we reach 10.000 euros or more? Then we will also be able to make extra copies of the film and fully cover the national and international festival distribution cost, following the trail of Said´s Journey.
