Animation Direction for Samsung: Holiday Dreams

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 30, 2014 by pablonavarro

Hi there, long time since my last post.

I’ll post one of the latest works I’ve done, and some of the reasons I didn’t have time to post anything lately! 🙂

It is a great commercial from Samsung, very imaginative and creative, see it for yourself, it looks and sounds great!

I did animation direction on this one, plus some shot here and there, I can say it was a ride, direct all the actions to match what was going to be the live action, but hey! it was great fun to do.

I worked for Martin Allais and he’s Studio.

I had a wonderful team of animators that made my life all easy too!

Worked digitally using traditional animation, wacom cintiqs and tvpaint animation software.

Hope you enjoy the video!

and here it is a making off for the short, enjoy too!

My work in Smurfs The Legend of Smurfy Hollow

Posted in Animation with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 20, 2013 by pablonavarro

Some months ago I had the chance to do some animation for the project Smurfy Hollow from Sony Animation.

I worked as part of the animation team of Sergio Pablos The Spa Animation Studios.

It was great to do this little blue creatures since this were one of my favorites cartoons and comic books when I was a little kid.

I hope you like to see some good old 2d traditional animation!

Wacom Cintiq Companion is finally out!

Posted in Tools and Tech with tags , , , , , , , , on September 3, 2013 by pablonavarro

I had the opportunity to put my hands on the brand new device that Wacom had released a few days ago.

I was asked to participate in the opening campaign for this new device and here it is the video that shows the device and some of the technical details.

I use the device for one day and I have to say that I’m amazed with it.

Probably I’ll write a more deep review about it when I can get me one and work with it a bit, but so far I can say that it is a very powerful device.

Full Windows 8 OS, intel i7, 8gigs of fast ram, and the bigger model comes with a 500 gigs fast hard drive. Several usb’s 3.0, two cameras Internet access by WIFI.

Possibility of install any software package you may need, it is a full portable computer so the same possibilities here than there.

In resume, a very powerful computer condensed in the format of a Cintiq 13hd, with all the specs of the Wacom Cintiq products.

It is the perfect companion for sketching on the go, or use those dead hours of wait in the airport while traveling to your studio after a meeting overseas!

More info about it when I can try one for a longer period!

You can follow it too on Facebook Wacom’s Creative Pro’s

Posted in Animation with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 15, 2013 by pablonavarro

The new feature film of Ari Folman (Waltz with Bashir) The congress will open the Director’s Fortnight at Cannes.

I’m proud to say that I been part of the animation team for this great movie, I’m anxious to see it!

The movie, it is a mix between parts of live action and traditional animation.

Despite of what many sites say, there was no rotoscopy on the film, or at least, not in all the scenes and sequences I did 🙂

Starring Robin Wright and Harvey Keitel between other renowned actors like Paul Giamatti and Danny Huston.

Enjoy the Trailer and I hope that soon when the movie releases I can post some of the rough animation I did for the film.
