Ian, Film Short – Produced by the Argentine Academy Award winners Juan Jose Campanella and Gaston Gorali at their Buenos Aires-based MundoLoco Animation Studios and the Ian Foundation, and lovingly directed by Abel Goldfarb, Ian is a combination of 3D and Stop Motion animation – stop-motion techniques for its background and CGI for characters and the objects they touch. An allegory focusing on bullying, disabilities and mending from brokenness – the characters are both unique and touching. Creative interpretations of difficult subject matters drive this animation with vibrant colors and meanings – where in the end both the protagonist and antagonists discover they are made from the same thing. A truly original and fresh take on the subjects with inventive metaphors and superb craft in every way. A remarkably talented crew delivers on all aspects of this heart-warming animation.
