Hi to ya’ll, Venus and the Sun, is a short film in wich I’ve been directing animation, and done several parts of the animation myself, had come to a end!

After a long month of hard work, coffe, and afterhours, the great team of artists had finished a nice piece of live action and animation!

Based on myths from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, the film was written by Reuben Grove, produced by Andy Brunskill and directed by Adam Randall.

Animation Direction done by Pablo Navarro.

Animation producer Lottie Hope.

The film premieres in London on the 10th March, 2011 at the Rich Mix Cinema, Shoreditch with after party at CONCRETE.

On 14th March 2011 Venus & The Sun will be available worldwide online from and as part of an App from the App Store.

I’m working too in another short film, titled Venus and the Sun.

Some time ago, my friend Lottie Hope (animation producer of the short film) pass me a draft of the script, and I found it quite amusing and interesting!

So, almost a year after, the script is finished and the machine ready to start rolling!

Now I’m the animation director and I’m designing some of the characters that will appear in the short film.

The short film is a mix of live action footage and traditional animation.

The starring actress is Kelley Hazell, a sculptural top model, in what will be Her first step into acting.

To check on the synopsis and know more about this project check the links below

Here are some of the designs I been making for the film.

Here they are, some more designs for the short film, as you can see too in the official blog of the short film.

This time is the wild Boar that will chase one of the main characters, a nasty beast yeap!!

“And now for something completely different….” the new bulls for the project posted!

Thanks for watching!!

Posted in Animation, Short Films with tags , , , , on August 13, 2009 by pablonavarro

I’m in France right now, Angouleme, working for a studio called Tigobo Animation.

I’m doing a short film with the independent filmmaker Renaud Armanet, the style of the animation is very rough and very loose, interesting to do and interesting to watch.

The short film is titled OA, and tells the internal journey to freedom of a men who’s been a  slave of society rules.

The short film already had won the presentation on the Cannes Film Festival, so we are working now to have the complete piece for the next year festival.

As soon as I can show something of the animation Ill post some of it here.

Here is a link on the website where you can see the short films in development

Reno is a great artist and very creative, so I can say that the short film will be awesome in the look  and style…….and of course in the animation!

I will post more stuff related soon!

Silicon Monster Hits Town

Posted in Animation, Commercials, Short Films with tags , , , , , , on February 18, 2009 by pablonavarro


Here you can see a “Fake Trailer” that me and a bunch of animation artists had worked on.

It is a funny story behind this trailer, it was supposed to be a commercial, a big company ask Boolab to develop this commercial for a new campaign, but when the commercial was finished the company step back and canceled the campaign.

So all the hard work of months was in vane, but with a very smart move Boolab “re-use” the piece and transform it into a “fake trailer” now in competition in the International Fake Trailers Festival.

Take a look to it following this link, and if you like it, place a sincere vote on it!

Silicon Monster Hits Town Trailer

Here are some rough animation scenes I find belonging to this project, unfortunately I couldn’t keep all the scenes I’ve done.

Hope you enjoy watching some paper and pencil in action!
