  • Amor Eterno triunfa en Sitges 2014

    La película de Marçal Forés, Amor Eterno, ganó el premio de Nuevas Visiones Emergentes en el Festival de Cine Sitges 2014. En CANADA estamos muy contentos por este premio, sobretodo por ver recompensado el esfuerzo de todo un equipo humano que hizo posible esta película.

  • PABLO MAESTRES, JOANA COLOMAR AND MAÏA VIDAL

    Co-directors Joana Colomar (director of Maïa Vidal's "Follow Me" music video, UKMVA nominee and last year's Young Directors Awards) and Pablo Maestres (director of music videos  for Be Brave Benjamin, Revolver and Fur Voice -nominated for this year's Young Directors Awards) bring us the music video for Maïa Vidal's new single “The Big Shift”, produced by CANADA.

    The Directors describe this video as a metaphoric exercise depicting the need for a radical change. Mountains rising at the singer's will, a group of dancers opening up as if they were a flower. These all become symbolic instruments in this beautiful voyage, during which the hidden becomes revealed, the new supersedes the old.

    A tight collaboration between Joana Colomar, Pablo Maestres and the talented creative team composed by Marc Miró, Director of Photography; Anna Colomer, Art Director; Blanca Esteller, Production Manager and Carolina Galiana, Costume Designer. 

     

     

     

  • NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR PAPA TOPO

    Here is a new music video we produced for Papa Topo. Co-directors Anna D. Ortuño and Marc Ferrer directed it this time. 

    It was shot over a weekend in a hotel by Costa Daurada with a tiny budget. The directors tell us a funny friendly story full of mistery, starring Nausicaa Bonnin and Cristian Herrera.
     
  • OUR FIRST MUSIC VIDEO ANIMATED

    Marçal Forés is the author of the first animation production held in CANADA. We talk about the new music video for Papa Topo, the first single "Meteoritos en Hawaii" from the album "Sangre en los zapatos (mi amor)". Marçal has created a story about villain girls aiming to destroy the world and heroes with slightly dumb superpowers... altogether with a very cute 8 bits manga look.

    It has taken some hard work weeks of a team of three animators under Marçal's rule. This is the first project we produce for the very talented director Marçal Forés, who is presenting these days his first feature film "Animals" in a number of very selected festivals across Europe . We've always been big fans of his work... having produced this first animation little jewel makes us very proud.

     

  • SOME SHORT NEWS

     

    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.



  • J.A. BAYONA JOINS CANADA FOR COMMERCIAL REPRESENTATION IN SPAIN

    As we recently anticipated, CANADA presents a new jointure to our team: spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona.

    After the overwhelming success at the Toronto and San Sebastian film festivals with his new feature The Impossible -with Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor-, Bayona joins CANADA for commercial rep in Spain.

    In fact, the collaboration between J and CANADA started last march with the production of the music video Disconnected, for british act Keane, that he directed together with his long term collaborator Sergio Sánchez.

    Bayona's career is having a spectacular blow. His first feature film - The Orphanage (2007) - got never before seen critical and audience acclaim. While he's got under his cap a large amount of music videos and commercials, some of them real gems in spanish visual culture.

    For CANADA it is a big honor to go and produce for such a strong and unique director. We hope this is the beginning of a long term collaboration.

  • CANADA SIGNS ERIK MORALES

    We are very pleased to announce that CANADA has just signed director Erik Morales.

     

    Erik lands in CANADA after a long experience in the advertising world both national and international, in high-class production companies such as Tesauro. Along his wide career Erik has worked for very important clients such as Nike, Audi, Mercedes, VW, Coca Cola, Diesel, Toyota or Sony, having won several awards such as a Bronze Lion in Cannes and two Golden Suns in San Sebastian.

     

    Erik joins us backed by his friendship with CANADA, a production company founded and ruled by directors that will certainly make possible a full development of all his talent & creativity.

     

    We expect this to be a long and productive relationship, and we want to give him our warmest welcome.

     

    Together with Erik, producer Julia Carrasco is joining the CANADA production team, formed by Luna Esquerdo (Producer), Alba Barneda (Head of Production) and Oscar Romagosa (Executive Producer). 

     

    Erik Morales’ signature with CANADA is the first of a number of novelties that we’ll be communicating shortly and that includes the release of CANADA’s new website.
