'El peix Sebastiano' is a strange fable woven of many micro-stories that are chained together in a prodigious way, is a film built from multiple visual strategies, from the stop-motion animation, cartoons, the Chomonian trick, the Mélièsian scene and the documentary film. This video is the son of the project ‘Membranas’, in which I developed several visual strategies, all of them linked to drawing forms and their kinetic applications.
