Carlos Lascano: Lila

In this lyrical and poetic piece, Carlos Lascano, transforms the world with the help of Lila, a young woman reminiscent of Am√©lie, who “can’t resign herself to accept reality as flat as she perceives it” says Lascano.

Lascano’s talent as an animator has long been acknowledged, and in this film, his directing skills really shine. No dialogue is needed here to move the story’s concept forward and Alma Garcia’s acting is flawless from beginning to end. Lascano describes the film as the completion to a trilogy, which include “A Short Love Story in Stop Motion” and “A Shadow of Blue.”

In a Short Love Story, a young girl daydreams about what she has just drawn on paper, while in a Shadow of Blue, a young girl finds her inspiration in the flight of monarch butterflies. All three films are filled with a sense of hope and optimism, and portray a world in which life and fantasy become one. Lila is a mesmerizing conclusion to a thematic trilogy that suggests that there may be. and should be, a little of Lila in all of us.

Syndrome takes Pause in Melbourne

Syndrome Studio creates the opening titles for the 2014 Pause Fest in Melbourne, Australia. Executive Producer, Monica Blackburn describes the project as “a dream project with full creative freedom” in which “we envisioned the sequence as a journey through a surreal, living art installation piece. Visually representing each aspect of the festival – start-ups, motion, gaming, web and creativity – as physical objects that combine and interlock to form a whole, the open underlines the festival’s theme, “everything is connected”.

The mixture of dated and futuristic technologies, of dusty machinery and glossy interfaces, shape this wonderful homage to the creative process, in which live action and CG merge seamlessly to form a lyrical technological dance.
