This is the latest news that has happened at CANADA over the past weeks. Or at least, a good taste of what we can disclose.
We were told we had been “unexpectedly” featured in the Catalan animated series Arròs Covat, by Juanjo Sáez and Kike Maíllo. In this episode they fantasise about the girls in our studio and our endless stream of work. They also depict the three directors of CANADA as a frustrated guy obsessed with aesthetics, a snooty and haughty guy from Madrid and a plain retard. At least they had the decency to let us know about it and to say they had done it with all their love. We really like the way Juanjo’s slaves drew us so there is a screenshot for you to guess who is who.
You can watch the entire chapter here.
On the same day they sent us the episode, we were on our way to London to attend the BUG 33 at the BFI as guests. There, we laughed out loud with host Adam Buxton and we finally got the chance to meet David Knight personally, a living legend of the audiovisual world and one of the only ones who devote all his love and hard effort to a bastard format called video clip.
This picture with Adam Buxton was taken at the backstage before getting inside the movie theatre. This man is one of the sharpest and wittiest men we’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. From CANADA, we highly recommend that you go and see the future BUG with your own eyes. You should do it at least once in your life.
Some days later, Oscar flew to the States representing CANADA at the screening of our short film called Beyond The Mountains More Mountains at the Dim Mak Studios in Los Angeles. After that, he stayed at the party, of course. Here you can see him with our buddy So Me - who we really admire - and the model Ashley Smith.
Next week we are heading to London again to attend the UKMVA, after our music video for Justice picked up five nominations: best dance video, best art direction and design, best editing, best telecine, best vfx. You wouldn’t want to miss this interview we recently did for the blog Surface2Air, where we had the chance to discuss our project for Justice and answer to the eternal dilemma of analogue vs. digital.
