Here are some of the character designs and models I did for the short film "Cuerdas" (

The boy has probably been the most challenging character that I have ever done; because of all he had to communicate only with his eyes and also because the references that I had to work with were from a real boy, the one that inspired the story.

I have a little boy who's 8 years old and identical to the boy in this film and there is a girl in his class who is just like the little girl. Touched me to the core and made me smile and cry all at the same time. Simply the most beautiful film I have ever had the pleasure of watching!

The boy was indeed the key, but the subtlety and believability of both main characters were masterpieces. We have probably all had people in our lives who were so important to us that we want others to feel about them as we do. I think that Cuerdas came close to accomplishing that. It did it using only animation, a language that I barely understand and which is not even spoken by one of the two principal characters, and about 10 minutes.

Me encanto el video. Trabajo con personas con discapacidad, y creo que se vió reflejado el trabajo diario que uno hace; y más aún, el trabajo de fondo...hacer a un lado lo triste, lo inevitable ( que llegara a todos de todas formas) para trabajar con lo que si se puede, con lo que se tiene, y procurar bienestar en el mientras tanto... Excelente!
