Happy Anniversary “Metegol”!

A day like yesterday, 20th December, two years ago, the 3D Animated film “Futbolín”, known as “Metegol” in Latin America and “Underdogs” in USA, was released in Spain.

Happy anniversary to a film directed by the Oscar winner Juan José Campanella (El Secreto de Sus Ojos).

Did you know? The film had a budget of $21M, making it the most expensive Latin American animation film so far.

With this film, Juan José Campanella got to know 3D Animation hand in hand with The SPA Studios.

SERGIO PABLOS OF THE SPA STUDIOS PRESENTS KLAUS AT CTN

Sergio Pablo of The SPA Studios Presents Klaus at CTN
Posted on: November 26, 2015 —By Marc-André Bouvier-Pelletier

Toon Boom recently signed a technology collaboration agreement with The SPA Studios for Klaus, their animated feature film currently in development and slated for theatrical release in 2019. Klaus is the latest animated feature film project from Founder Sergio Pablos, co-creator of Despicable Me.

We had the pleasure of meeting Sergio at CTN in Burbank California this weekend, where he presented his trailer for Klaus to a packed room, and came back for an encore presentation to a larger audience the next day.

During his presentation, Sergio talked about the art and techniques used in the Klaus teaser trailer, and how he created such a high-quality look.

He showed us early drawings and explained his visual development process for the characters, which involves many different steps to create the line work, shading and volume. His goal is to maintain the original quality of the original designs all the way through production so that the final result matches his original vision. This causes challenges when going into production, because of the amount of steps required to getting this look and quality, and we aim at reducing them using Harmony.

At one point he was asked about which tools he uses. It was great to hear him talk about why he is choosing Harmony and how we at Toon Boom will be working closely with him and his team to streamline production – by enabling them to do as many steps as possible inside the same tool, Harmony.

It was truly an amazing presentation. If you weren’t able to be there, be sure to check out the trailer to get an idea of what he’s accomplished.
