Brace Yourself For The Teaser Of THE ESOTERIC BIRTHDAY!
So we salute anyone trying to make animation which doesn't depend on the often-used molds. And El Cumpleaños Esotérico a.k.a. The Esoteric Birthday, Costa Rica's first feature-length animated film, sure looks to be very, VERY different.
An independent low-budget production, directed by Guillermo Tovar C. and Nadia Mendoza A. (husband and wife), The Esoteric Birthday is now 99% finished. The couple is currently trying to get the post production financed through crowd funding. The plan is to have the film finished in December of this year, and give it a festival run. After that, all of it will be posted on-line to be watched free of charge.
And to get publicity for their project, they have released a teaser. Here it is!
Be warned though: this is definitely not for the kiddies. It is a pretty psychedelic affair and there is some strong stuff happening in it, including a disembowelment. Or two, or three...
