El ruido del mundo

El Ruido del Mundo (Noise of the World) is a short film animated with clay drawings on glass. Through music and without words, it tells the story of Hector, a composer that suffers a strange illness: he can hear every noise in the world.

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.

Hemos terminado por fin el rodaje de la animación y hemos empezado la postproducción, confiando en que llegaremos a nuestra meta en Verkami (todavía tenemos once días, por favor compartan el link!). Coke empezará con la versión final de la música esta semana, y trataremos de transmitir más por UStream según vaya avanzando la producción...

Muchas gracias a todos por su apoyo!! Reportaremos avances esta semana...

We´re finally done with the animation and have started the post production process, trusting that we will reach our goal in Verkami (we still have eleven days on the campaign, please help us share it!). Coke will start with the final music composition this week, and we´ll try to keep broadcasting on UStream as the production moves along...

Thank you all for the support!! More this week......

#02 / Making of: Dibujando el Teatro

¡Hola de nuevo!

Aunque podéis seguir el proceso en tiempo real cada noche en UStream, os hemos preparado este time-lapse para que veáis a cámara rápida el trabajo que lleva cada fotograma y os hagáis una idea de la técnica que está utilizando Coke. Aquí podéis ver la sesión del miércoles pasado.

Un abrazo y muchas (¡muchas!) gracias a los que habéis convertido esta primera semana de crowdfunding en un arranque tan optimista. No vamos a echar las campanas al vuelo y vamos a seguir trabajando duro... ¡En breve os contaremos más cosas!

#01 / ¡Mil gracias!

¿Cuál ha sido nuestra sorpresa cuando, incluso antes de terminar nuestro primer post para este blog, nos encontramos con que ya hemos rebasado los primeros 1000€? ¡Váis más rápido que nosotros!

¡MIL GRACIAS a nuestros primeros veinticinco mecenas!

Ahora mismo estamos animando -ya vamos por las últimas ocho escenas- y vuestro apoyo nos anima a seguir animando (los animadores tenemos licencia 006 para usar ese juego de palabras) y ya parece que empezamos a ver la luz al final del túnel.

Hoy a partir de las siete de la noche [ Madrid, GMT+1 ] estaremos en UStream desde el que lleva siendo nuestro stand de animación los últimos tres años, por si queréis pasar a ver, preguntar o animar. Aunque no puedas aportar dinero, vuestra compañía también se agradece. :)

En el transcurso de la tarde intentaremos publicar el making of del plano que animó Coke anoche.
