Of our history
“Grandes Chilenos” (in English “Great Chileans”) was the Chilean adaptation of the BBC series which narrated the story of 60 notable Chileans through history.
The challenge: to create 60 animated ads, each one 25 seconds long in 30 days.
I directed a team of two animators and another art director. In that way, we would achieve two ads a day, that were shown on TV over the following 24 hours.
We started some days ahead to test the production flow and techniques. I had half a morning to develop two draft concepts based on the voiceover and historical information available, then produce the “set” to be animated next day.
By the end of the month, we successfully broadcast on air more than 60 montypythonesque ads on national television.
