About

The Story

Time/Space Reflections is a Sfici/Fantasy story about an inventor  in the future that loses her twin sister tragically.  To cope with her grief she creates a Time/Space Portal  that can go to other dimensions.

Meanwhile, there is another twin in a parallel universe  creating a  portal, she looks identical to the futuristic twin, in this case she lives in a fantastical renaissance world.   The difference is that she is using alchemy to create the portal. 

The portal opens, they see each other  for the first time, there is happiness, and jubilation.  But soon they discovered that crossing the portal means death.

SPANISH

La artista puertorriqueña Alba García-Rivas comenzará la producción de su nuevo cortometraje “Reflexiones en Tiempo y Espacio”.   El nuevo cortometraje es una dramática historia de ciencia ficción /fantasía/horror, en el cual una inventora del futuro pierde a su hermana gemela en un trágico accidente y decide construir un portal para viajar a través del tiempo y así poder encontrarla.

The Project

Be part  of this creative project, Time/Space Reflections and launch FANTASIATION  as a full-fledged animation studio!

FANTASIATION was born in founder Alba Garcia's basement. She  decided to build a company in the year 2007. After 7 years of art doll creations, conventions and galleries, she decided it was time to go back to her roots, stop-motion animation.

Fantasiation consists of a team of talented artists, filmmakers and animators who are all here because we love to make beautiful things and are inspired by Time/Space Reflections story. Alba wants to bring stop-motion back, in a way that  welcomes everyone and spotlights more courageous and warrior like  females as protagonists. We hope that Time/Space Reflections is just the beginning of the amazing things to come!

How far we have come?

The script, storyboard, animatic. character design is done. With your pledge we can continue the  puppet fabrication and print all the 500 faces we need, we can  finish the sets and start animation.

Script and Storyboard plus animatic compleated

Our next step will be to print and paint all the 500 faces that we need for the facial expressions using a professional 3-D printer and then  animate the movie.  We also need to compose the music, and editing services.

SPANISH

La artista está incursionando en una nueva técnica de animación en “stop-motion” llamada prototipo rápido donde ejecutará todas las expresiones faciales de los personajes, similar a la película “ParaNorman”.  En el caso de “Reflecciones en Tiempo y Espacio”, García ha animado las caras y procederá a imprimir las caras utilizando una impresora 3-D;  de aquí saldrán 500 caras, las cuales se pintarán y se animarán individualmente.

3D expressions will be 3D Printed with your pledge!

Facial expressions for movie, (500 faces to print!)

Walking tests...The armatures  were done  by  Malvern Armatures and they  are  a delight to move! SO happy with the armatures results.  :)

Puppet Fabricator, Julio Garay working on sculpting the inside of the puppet that later will be the silicon body.

Where we want to go?

So far, we've been able to build Time/Space Reflections  and the world with very little means and resources, in my basement.  But now we've come to the final stages of this long process and we need your help to make it all come together. 

Your help can get us there and your kind contribution will go towards:

  • Director of Photography
  • Animators
  • Post-production costs like Compositing, Editing, Sound and Music
  • a percentage also goes to Kickstarter and Amazon for making this fundraising possible!

Where the money goes?

EQUIPMENT /SUPPLIES

The majority of the money raised will be to pay, the materials to make the rapid prototyping face-plates for all the characters expressions, the props, sets, the characters, get a camera that works with Dragonframe software.

ARTISTS

Previous Animation Experience

I created The Happy Prince, by Oscar Wilde. It was completed during my Film Thesis as a low to no budget film. It's ten minutes long.  This is what you can expect from my passion for film production. It will be better because we are using a cutting edge rapid prototyping technique. I am proud of the people I worked with during the production. It is always a  labor of love.

SPANISH

Esta es mi pelicula previa, ha Ganado varios premios. Fue creada con puro amor y muchos materiales reciclables. Esto es lo que pueden esperar de mi amor  por este medio creative. 

Esta será  una producción de tipo “Stop-motion”; la cual es un proceso cinematográfico, o técnica utilizada para hacer que los objetos estáticos parecieran como si se estuvieran moviendo, se utiliza comúnmente en la animación con plastilina y marionetas. En general se denomina animaciones de stop-motion a las que no entran en la categoría de dibujo animado, ni en la de animación por computadora; esto es, que no fueron dibujadas ni pintadas, sino que fueron creadas tomando imágenes y objetos de la realidad. Los objetos son traídos a la vida al romper el movimiento de la figura en incrementos (“frames”) y filmando un fotograma de la película por incremento.  Es la técnica de animación más arriesgada de realizar comercialmente hablando, ya que a diferencia de otras técnicas, en ésta es muy complicado realizar cambios después de terminada la pieza, así que si fuera necesario realizar alguno, habría que comenzar de nuevo.

This film took  a year and a half to complete. This is the reality of stop-motion animation, it requires many hours to create seconds of motion, this media creates a warm feeling to the story.  With this budget, I plan to accomplish  a stunning look, (Paranorman style) and this makes me very exultant!

SPANISH

Usualmente un cortometraje de esta indole se toma acerca de 10 meses. Con su donativo lograremos esl "look" de los grandes maestros del cine.

PROFESSIONAL WORK

I worked at MTV as an Animator, for the Celebrity Deathmatch series.

Alba estuvo animando en  "Celebrity Deathmatch" de la serie de MTV.

Risks and challenges

As any other art form the primary challenge in producing the short film will be to create animation that is feature quality on a relatively small budget. This is essential in order to instill in buyers the confidence that this short film will be nothing short of extraordinary. Based on my experience and track record in directing and producing an award winning animation, I feel confident in my ability to not only achieve but to exceed my goal in creating a one of a kind stop-motion film.
Stop-motion takes time, we set the deadline to MAY 2014. It may take longer due to the time consuming production and post-production and other bumps in the road. We will show progress weekly on our website and Facebook Page. It is a very exciting art and you are part of it. Welcome!
The art of stop-motion means ongoing experimentation. With every new set and character comes unique challenges. Almost every new thing we make takes several trials and tests to get just perfect. That can get costly in time and materials but ultimately it's so we can deliver the most beautiful results possible.
Now, Let's make History!
