I have participated as

I have Lisenced in Fine Arts in Santiago, Chile Between 1981-1985, then Computer Graphics and Animation techniques at the CCAC in Berkley, San Francisco, USA(1985) - Sao Paulo, Brasil, ECA ( 1987) animation techniques, Computer Graphics at New York Institute of Technology NYIT, Computer Arts , USA ( 1988). Since then i have directed six animated shortfilms, been involved in Computer Graphics and Animation projects, working on Television, Broadcast Graphics , Digital Compositing for Animation Film productions.
as a tool for the creative process is fascinating as you can merge and
manipulate scanned sketches, draw, animate or paint directly
on the screen with a pressure sensitive tablet, capturing the moment with
a wide range of digital tools.
My aproach when i face the digital canvas, the process of creating takes an attitude towars the bottom line, crossing throug my expectations, to witnes and unfold my gestual traces, discovering new forms.
The Digital Animation is a process in which takes a longer time to achieve the result, thus my aproach is a gathering process of ideas and images, transforming throug time and frames,a kinetic idea or script.
The link between the still image and the moving picture comes when both became one, as you can see a still image but suggest you that is in motion, a parallel process in which both capture its essence. I have experience with digital video, stick figures drawings, old sci-fi movies, 3D, digital animated painting, exploring new ways to aproach digital Animation, in my own environment.
I have a strong source in drawing the initial sketches on paper then capturing my hand gestual tracing through digital tools, my backgroung in Fine Arts keeps me aware of what could be usefull in the process of creation, the cycle is complete when the final result is shared with others, a connection between the screen or canvas and the observer, a step ahead in their own signs, sounds and images.
