This animated short has been an authentic challenge that I wanted to face with my friends of Allakinda (allakinda.com). In fact, if the film has any value is because of them. It has been a long process, but in the end, it was worth and we can see At Its Best to the most divine, sexiest ever, DIVINA LOMAX! (oscarjulve.com/portfolio/divina-lomax/).
Divina Lomax is the Gran Circo Cappuccino‘s (grancircocappuccino.com) greatest attraction. Married to Arturo, the tamer of dinosaurs. Despite the unwavering love that unites Divina to her husband, she despises him and she has sex with anyone except Arturo. And not only that: After each night of extramarital desire, the Burlesque star tattooes the name of her lover fleeting in her skin. You can read the names of her lovers on the Gran Circo Cappuccino‘s Facebook (facebook.com/grancircocappuccino).
Thanks to Ciscu Spinevinyl for providing the music!
As everybody I'm a music lover, is my first inspiration source maybe, I wanted to make something related to my favorite music genre: IDM. Next, there is a brief description about it.
IDM is for "Intelligent Dance Music" (popular tag) also known as "Braindance". Electronic music sub genre that born in the early 90's as a result of mixing Underground Techno and Ambient genres mainly. Some of the artists involved deny the tag 'cause it sounds elitist, but the opposite is true. The most important features is that musicians can immerse themselves into individual experimentation with their own computers and hardware, creating their own styles and incorporating more electronic sub genres as electro, acid, drum & bass, even jazz, making it more diverse.
Some other theories say each sound is aimed at a part of the human body. We are more sensitive to the bass tones from the belly to the legs and the high tones are directed to the head, ears and arms.
Some of the most representative artists for the genre are Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Boards of Canada, Tycho Mouse on Mars etc.
Is the kind of music for listening, relax, to abstract, and create.
An homage to one of the most underrated foods and my personal favorite: The Hot Dog
I went with a Chicago style Hot Dog: Beef Frank, Ketchup, Mustard, Relish, Tomato Slices, and Diced Onions. The variety of ingredients gave me good color scheme and a variety of assets to work with. Assets were made in Illustrator and animated After Effects.
