More than two years ago, Glassworks Barcelona teamed up to direct and craft the two animated stories embedded in “A Monster Calls”, J. A. Bayona’s new movie, based in the homonymous novel by Patrick Ness. Two metaphorical fables that help understanding episodes of reality that are difficult to explain through traditional narrative.

After all this time, and despite the research work done, it’s also very complicated for us to put in words what this experience has meant. This project enabled us meeting wonderful artists, with whom we had never collaborated before; people more fantastic than the tales we all made possible. Thanks everyone for putting all your love and a little bit of your life in these stories.
