Mira Mira —

Since 1996, the four-member band from Mexico City make powerful instrumental music. Alongside Polytropos, my team and I designed and animated neon lights to elevate the storytelling.

Video recorded in Madrid, Spain by Polytropos A.C. Thanks to Siclo Spain and the volunteers who participated in the video!

Ask —

Polytropos, a cultural film house that supports emerging artists, asked me to experiment with ways to unite the elements of the music video Mira Mira of the Mexican funk band Los Músicos de José.

Approach —

In close collaboration with director Luis Felipe Ferra, my team and I developed a mostly frame-by-frame animation, titles and credits to establish a world that expresses through neon.
