Glassworks Barcelona is glad to present the two tales created for the film A Monster Calls by the acclaimed director J. A. Bayona. Together with Headless Productions, an animation studio from Barcelona, our aim was to create something new and visually outstanding. Both pieces had to be linked with the paintings made by Conor, the main character in the movie, and they should also be integrated in his artistic universe, which meant a technical and creative challenge for us.
For the first tale we used a technique closer to watercolor that has a less realistic design, it’s more flattered and has no textures. The second one is closer to stop motion or miniature, and despite it preserves some craftwork feeling in the painting, some elements have more volumen to make their transition to the real world a bit more organic.
As there were images not created by Glassworks Barcelona intertwined in the tales, we’ve chosen a black and white effect to distinguish the ones not owned by us.
Hope you enjoy them!
