WE WANT TO FINISH UKAKO!
Ukako is a unique project that builds with destruction. Explore and extensive animation techniques known to this day incorporating decaying organic elements to the old Technique Oil on glass. The surprising result, as the painting progresses according to our action, turnips disintegrate without being able to speak on them.
We photographed more than 500 paintings and 2000 we still have to paint, we know it is a long task, we are willing to face it! As we do every day in our workshop, painted about 20 paintings a day, equivalent to almost two seconds of animation!
WHY DO WE NEED YOUR CONTRIBUTION?
With your help we can complete this project and it comes to light.
We want to share and show i. Projection in theaters and festivals to reach many people.
Encourage and motivate, generate interest and desire to know the unlimited world of animation!
Worth researching and working on it, the results are worth it!
WHAT SALL WE DO WITH THE MONEY RAISED?
Dedicate 100% to the project. Buy the supplies needed to keep going (oils, brushes, oils, food for animators) and buy a computer powerful enough to perform the image postproduction, obtaining a high quality short film.
Financing 5.1 sound mix and recording original music in studio musicians.
This not only the immediate benefit of this of this project, but we will consolidate as animation studio for further progress and innovate as we have been doing since 2010.
HOW SOON WILL BE DONE?
In three months, we completed the step of performing!
+2 Weeks devoted to:
Audio post: foley recording, performing and environment effects, editing, and music recording and mixing 5.1.
Postproduction of Image: Digital Retouching photographs and armed and correction in After Effects.
We will update the progress we make every week.
Enter and knows more than Ukako and J Animation!
HOW IS THE STORY OF UKAKO?
In the dark, in the heart of the earth is the figure of Ukako, idol imposed by the Spanish to the miners of Alto Peru. They are in the deep, working on the extraction of minerals.
Despite the offerings performed to Ukako a collapse occurs and all the miners lose their lifes.
Ukako is lifted up from the rubble by a miner, who takes it out of the mine and carried into the woods. Ukako is leaning on a tree that is slowly covering by stains.
Through this story, realistic and metaphorical at once is exercised the will of banish the old dogmas rooted, faith imposed and thus can generate a spiritual transformation.
The second story shows an ocean of consciousness in which the water is stirred, turbied, changing colors and shapes.
From a chaos of multiple shapes and directions, gradually changing to a new order of its internal elements.
So, at the end of the story we see emerging fire on water, here is a new order set that will enable the transformation.
The third story is a transformation in itself: A live background consists of turnips that mutate following its natural cycle thus showing the time taken to perform the animation from start to completion.
