First completed shot!

Today I have incredible news… I want to share with the world the very first completed shot of Servicios Públicos.

My dear friend Johan Alfort is a kickass Swedish compositor responsible for this fine tidbit of pure awesomeness. He really poured his heart and soul into these 11 or so seconds, and after almost a month of Skype meetings and emails flying frantically back and forth between Bogotá and Stockholm he brilliantly managed to deliver a gorgeous sample of what the whole project is about.

My Swedish pal had to find an almost pictorial, silent film look, yet aiming at the same time for a realistic approach in the interactions between the real actor and his c.g environment. All of this while tackling with the inherent difficulties of handling over a 100 passes rendered in Splutterfish Brazil (an old render engine from 2005) just for the sake of “artistic experimentation'”.

My most sincere hat tip to you Johan. You pulled it off.

Benjamin Piñeros was born in 1978 in Bogotá, Colombia but lived his entire childhood in NYC.

Fed up with working in the advertising world, one good day he threw everything to hell and decided to make a film on his personal computer. Now he has a huge credit card debt, no girlfriend and no income. Well, at least he has this blog...

He's a self taught filmmaker and 3D artist in love with all good sounds from Bach to David Bowie. He writes first drafts on paper, hates smartphones and wants to learn to play guitar someday. You can contact him on Twitter for multi-million dollar screenplay deals, indecent proposals or if you just want to have a nice chat about movies.
