Colombian 3D Animation short film to be released online

Categories: Latin America, Colombia, Arts & Culture, Film, Health

After more than a year's worth of work, two Colombian companies have finished a short animated film and wish to share it with the world through a free online premiere.

Victeria and Globuleo is the retelling of Romeo and Juliet in 3D animation, and it makes their odds even harder since Victeria is a flu virus and Globuleo is a white blood cell: a most impossible love story would be hard to come by.  Los Filmes Videocreation [1] and Vectorial Animation Studios [2], both companies located in Cali, Colombia and a team of additional Colombian talent [3]: animators, scriptwriters, singers, artists and producers came together to make this short movie happen and it is being released online for free today, December 4th.

Following is the trailer for the short [4]:

The short has been promoted through microblogging tool Twitter and you can follow them by adding @Victeria3D [5] to your account. They also have a Facebook page where you can show your support [6].

To view the Spanish language short, you need to visit the Victeria y Globuleo [7] site and sign up for a PIN code which will be requested before you log in to watch the Online Premiere.
