Vintage Mexican Sci-Fi film festival

We are so excited about these Hammer Mexican Sci Fi screenings! A related article on HERE.

La Nave De Los Monstrous in particular – because we have only seen this on low-quality VHS in Spanish, with no English subtitles,  and it was inspiration for many a monster in Los Campeones! :)


Vampire women







Saving this date: Friday August 28th, 7.30pm.  UCLA Billy Wilder Theater. See you there!

Los Campeones will be screening at the Strasbourg International Film Festival 2009. (SiFF also has a Facebook page)

The Strasbourg International Film Festival is a 10-day international film festival held from August 28th to September 6th, 2009 in Strasbourg, France and Kehl, Germany, focusing on the works of new and emerging filmmakers. Creatives. Non-conformists. Original and independent voices from all genres, notably experimentals and avant-garde pieces as well as more traditional themes like dramas, thrillers, romantic comedies, innovative documentaries and unique animated works.

We don’t have a schedule  with exact date and time yet… Stay tuned!

Rough as guts – the Trio Heroico sequence

Posted in Los Campeones, Storyboards & Layouts on July 17, 2009 by lili

A very early ROUGH animatic for the Trio Heroico sequence in Los Campeones.

Eddie animated the fights between the Trio and monsters; I  roughed out key poses for the nightclub dancing scene … which you don’t really see in the final movie as we ran out of time and money to animate everything. We will HAVE TO do the sports cars and go-go girls in a Los Campeones sequel! ;)

Los Campeones – the soundtrack!

It is unfortunate that doesn’t allow the embedding of  music playlists so…

We direct you to the Los Campeones MySpace page to listen to the soundtrack. (0r click HERE for the mixpod playlist)


While you are there, check out the Los Campeones myspace blog, which hasn’t been updated in ages but still has lots of production photos.  Check out THIS ENTRY specifically,  to see and hear a very cool Mariachi Los Toros recording session.

Los Campeones Art Book?

Layout8-cover copy

Well not yet. We started putting some layouts together with the hope of making this happen.  And as we have always liked books that show the rougher side of the process – sketchy thumbnails, rough pencil animation and layouts – our approach would be to show the evolution of the movie from these roughs to the finished artwork that eventually made it up on screen.

Story thumbnails and storyboard panels on the left  – with the actual finished version on the right

Layout5 copy

Rough poses for the animation

Layout7 copy

Rough poses for Mr. Profesional – and the final animated images on the right

Layout3 copyJust a fraction of the many characters we designed for the movie!

And believe us – there is a LOT more rough artwork from where this came from!
