Last year I was working on Wrinkles (Arrugas in spanish) like a special effects compositor. I took care of atmospheric and aquatic effects in most sequences they needed. I used 3D and 2D techniques depending of the effect’s nature like clouds, vapor, snow, water, etc.
The film won the Best Animated Film & Best Adapted Screenplay at Goya Awards 2012, but the film is reaping a lot of other awards since the first premiere.
Based on Paco Roca´s comic of the same title (2008 National Comic Prize), WRINKLES is a 2D animated feature-length film for an adult audience. Wrinkles portrays the friendship between Emilio and Miguel, two aged gentlemen shut away in a care home. Recent arrival Emilio, in the early stages of Alzheimer, is helped by Miguel and colleagues to avoid ending up on the feared top floor of the care home, also known as the lost causes or “assisted” floor. Their wild plan infuses their otherwise tedious day-to-day with humour and tenderness, because although for some their lives is coming to an end, for them it is just beginning.
