“Los Rosales” by Daniel Ferreira is the Best Animation Short at Palm Springs International ShortFest, the largest short film festival in North America.
Los Rosales is the debut short film of Daniel Ferreira, a researcher in Fabrica’s Video area. The project, started as a music video for the homonym track composed by Fabrica musician Jhon William Castaño Montoya, developed into a synergetic balance of harmonious narrative. Constructed from cardboard sets, old computer machine parts, and metal wire, each piece was individually moved to create a stop-motion animation of over 21.000 frames.
The story brings us to a harsh industrial world where a humble, solitary robot is stuck in a repetitive life turning wheels and cogs all day to produce his only means of survival – one small monthly rose. The beauty and nutrition of the rose, in the jarring landscape drives his search for meaning. As machine parts start to break down, his skills are put to the test in finding his own path.
