Hi friends at Animation Nation! My name is Guillermo Tovar C, I am artist and animator from Costa Rica. Along with my wife Nadia Mendoza A, I am directing the first artistic animated feature film to ever come out of Central America, Mexico and the Caribean, and one of the very few to ever come out of Latin America.

It is an independent low budget film, and both of us have done 99% of the production ourselves, following the steps of artists such as Bill Plymton, Nick Cross, and MDotStrange, to name a few.

It is expected to be finished by Dec 2013.

Right now we are also holding a crowdfunding campaign to cover postproduction expenses. The movie will be posted on line to watch free of charge once it is finished and after it makes the festival run.
It would be great if you could give the project a shout out, if you like of course. Thank you for taking the time to read this message.

Here is the link to our trailer:
